Once upon a time, gift baskets were seen as a boring gift for someone you didn't want to give much thought to. Dusty fruit, stale crackers, and sweaty cheeses wrapped in an ungodly amount of cellophane hardly conveyed the kind of warm sentimentality most people strive for when gifting during the holiday season. These days, that's all changed. With more and more indie and small-batch artisan crafters producing food and provisions than ever before, there is suddenly a wide range of highly giftable products to choose from.

These artisans seem to have got the memo about lame gift baskets, because suddenly we see all kinds of cool and interesting gift baskets on the market full of the best products from these creators. If you are searching for the best gift for the food-lover or gourmet cooks, read through this list to see the best of the best food and drink gift baskets.

It all gets boxed up and packaged perfectly to make a beautiful gift for any special person in your life. As an added perk, a tree gets planted for every product sold on the site, in a partnership with 1% For The Planet.

Lady & Larder Classic Small Gift Basket

The holidays are a time for giving, and one of the best ways to gift is to spend your money with small retailers who specialize in sourcing from small-batch and hand-crafted sources.

As much as we would all love to treat our family and friends to a hot cup of homemade cocoa, sometimes it just isn't logistically possible with holiday travel more stressful and expensive than ever. The master gift box retailer, Box Fox, has the perfect solution. The Fireside gift box has everything you need to make a cozy mug of hot chocolate at home. The only thing that isn't included is the soft blanket and roaring fire.

Candle Co. soy wax candle in Spruce, a box of luxury milk chocolate hot cocoa mix by Compartes, a package of vanilla bean marshmallows, and a ceramic to-go mug to sip the cocoa out of. All the gift boxes by Box Fox come with a gorgeous handwritten card and a beautiful keepsake box. It's like a warm hug, all wrapped up in a beautiful package.

See's Candies Merry Sweets Gift

Sometimes, the best holiday gift is just a big box of candy. Master candy makers and chocolatiers, See's Candies, has been making candy and chocolates since the 1920s based on Mary See's original recipes. Around the holidays, See's Candies starts rolling out its seasonal collection.

Masienda Pura Macha Salsa Trio

Salsa macha is one of those great condiments that have the power to immediately transform a regular or basic dish into something utterly exceptional. Originally from Veracruz, Mexico, salsa macha is a type of chile oil made with dried chiles, fried garlic, chopped nuts, spices, and sometimes dried fruit. It's like a Mexican chili crisp, and the applications are just as endlessly versatile.

Masienda is on a mission to bring high-quality Mexican foods and ingredients to the everyday home kitchen. Gift a taste of this signature brand with the Masienda Pura Macha Salsa Trio, a gift box with three jars of salsa macha. Each jar has a different flavor profile: guajillo/cherry/cacao, chipotle/coffee/peanut, and guajillo/cranberry/hazelnut. Each salsa works just as well as a marinade as it would be drizzled over a slice of pizza. The gift box trio is the perfect way to sample a bit of each of these inventive salsas.

Olympia Provisions Royale 10

Not all gift boxes are full of sweet treats and chocolate confections. Meat lovers will enjoy the Royale 10 sampler pack from Olympia Provisions, which comes with 10 of the most popular cured salamis. Salamis made in the French style include the saucisson sec (made with garlic and black pepper), the saucisson d'Arles (just plain pork), the saucisson d'Alsace (with cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg), and the saucisson d'Noisette, which is made with heritage pork, salt, and hazelnuts.

Frog Hollow Farm Le Grande Gift Basket

Frog Hollow Farm is a 280-acre organic farm in the East Bay area of Northern California that focuses on regenerative farming practices. The fruit grown on this farm is some of the best in the state, and lucky for us, it ships the signature produce across the country. Forget about dusty old fruit baskets from other retailers — the holiday gift boxes from Frog Hollow Farm are on a whole different level of taste and quality. While baskets of all sizes full of ripe avocados, zesty Makrut limes, and juicy papaya are available, the Le Grande Gift Basket is the largest and most luxurious option.

The basket comes full of organic mixed fruit (selected based on seasonality), an array of jams and conserves (like peach, apricot, and nectarine) made at the peak of the fruit's season, Hungarian shortbread, cookies, brownies, chocolate toffee pistachios, and organic almonds.

Fox & the Knife Pasta Dinner Gift Basket

There's nothing quite like fresh, handmade pasta served with the perfect sauce. While we would all like to have our own personal chef to crank out hot plates of fresh pasta day after day, it's not always financially feasible. The next best thing is likely the Pasta Dinner Gift Basket by Fox & the Knife. The kit comes packed with fresh bucatini, rigatoni, and linguini. Paired with the fresh pasta is an assortment of gourmet sauces, including a rich wild boar bolognese, tomato basil Pomodoro, and a spicy prosciutto-studded amatriciana. There is also a taleggio-stuffed focaccia to complete the Italian feast.

The pasta and sauces are shipped fresh and have to be unpacked immediately after receiving where it will all keep in the refrigerator for up to five days, or frozen for two weeks (if you can wait that long before diving in).

Nueske's Gourmet Sausage Sampler

The Nueske's Gourmet Sausage Sampler makes a great gift for any special occasion, especially so near the holidays when we are all looking for something to cut through the mountain of sweets and cookies available at our seasonal gatherings. The Sausage Sampler includes fresh, all-natural chicken sausages with no preservatives or fillers. Three of Chef Martin Giunta's most popular options have been selected for the gift box: fresh basil and sundried tomato, feta and fresh spinach, and sweet Granny Smith apple.

The sample comes in two sizes: a 2-pound 4-ounce size for $32.99, and a 4-pound 8-ounce option for $50.99. The sausages have to be refrigerated immediately upon arrival, but they come fully cooked and only need to be warmed before serving. They would work just as easily sliced in pasta with peppers and fennel as they would be charred on the grill and eaten straight up.

Wine Country Gift Baskets The V.I.P. Gourmet Gift Basket

When in doubt, you could always just go for the gift basket that's absolutely doing the most. The V.I.P. Gourmet Gift Basket from Wine Country Gift Baskets is really on the next level when it comes to abundance and variety.

The items are paired to be eaten in combinations, or go really wild and make a huge charcuterie board with everything in the basket.

Snacks not really striking your fancy? Wine Country Gift Baskets have a little bit of everything and all baskets can have optional additions of a bottle of wine (or two).

Carlino's Pancake Gift Box

What's the best part about waking up on a cold Sunday morning? Waking up to a hot pancake breakfast. This Carlino's Pancake Gift Box is like gifting that feeling, right down to the wooden spoon for stirring up the mix. Complete with two bags of pancake mix (one plain buttermilk, one chocolate chip), pure Vermont maple syrup, and sweet Carlino's strawberry jam; anyone who receives this box will have everything they need for a decadent brunch.

The well-known Pennsylvanian Italian grocery, Carlino's, has much more than pancakes, so if you find yourself in an especially giving mood, you could always pair the Pancake Gift Box with the Mama's Monday Night Pasta Box, complete with dried pasta and marinara for a cozy Italian dinner night in, or the Afternoon Snack Gift Box, which comes filled with artisanal cheese and salami, plus Carlino's house-made crostini and red pepper jam.

Kerber's Farm Kitchen Companion Gift Crate

Kerber's Farm started as a poultry farm on Long Island, New York, and eventually grew to include a farmstand that churns out fresh-baked pies, as well as other seasonal favorites made from, produced, and grown right on the farm. While you used to have to make the trek out to get a bite of the delicious offerings, these days the farm is selling provisions, preserves, and even fresh pies. The gift packs are especially handy when the season of gift-giving is upon us.

The Kitchen Companion Gift Crate is the best choice for cooks of all skill levels. It comes packed with some of the farm's best-selling items, like extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fig preserves, and organic sea salt with dried lavender. It's not enough to make a complete meal, but these items can complement any kitchen and would work in a wide variety of recipes.

King Arthur Baking Company Pizza Party Gift

Another gift basket offering an "experience in a box" is the Pizza Party Gift from King Arthur Baking Company. The same brand that produces some of the best-performing flours on the market also sells handy kits that help you get a little outside of your comfort zone when it comes to baking. The Pizza Night Collection has almost everything you need to whip up pizza dough at home. There's a digital scale for ultra-precise measuring, a bag of pizza flour, a jar of pizza dough flavor, a jar of pizza seasoning, a 16-ounce jar of Dell'Amore pizza sauce, garlic oil, a pizza wheel, and the tested and true pizza recipes from King Arthur Baking Company.

Anybody from the novice cook to the 5-star gourmet chef will enjoy this selection of goods.

Brightland The Mini Essentials

Not every gift box or basket has to be full of snacks and sweet treats. Some recipients will be psyched to get a box of family-owned and operated Brightland olives oils and vinegar. The Mini Essentials gift box features four miniature bottles of the brand's best sellers. Each bottle is beautifully designed and packaged, and full of unique flavors.

Brightland sells a range of cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, like the AWAKE, which is robust and bold-flavored, and the ALIVE, the smoother, more grassy-tasting varietal. The gift box also comes with RAPTURE, Brightland's balsamic vinegar that gets double-fermented with zinfandel grapes and blackberries, and PARASOL, the raw Champagne vinegar made from chardonnay grapes and California oranges. Each is delicious enough to be eaten on its own with just a simple hunk of bread or could be whisked into a top-tier vinaigrette that can make any salad sing.

Diaspora Co. Masala Trio

We never thought much about the spices at our local grocery store before Diaspora Co. came onto the market. The dry powder contained in those little plastic vials was all that was available, so it was good enough. Now, there's a new sheriff in town by the name of Diaspora Co. This spice company seeks to change the way we buy and use spices with its collection of 30 single-origin spices sourced from small farms across Sri Lanka and India. Other than spices, the company also offers spice blends, and one of the best gift baskets you can give this holiday season is the Diaspora Co. Masala Trio gift box.

Masalas are Indian spice blends that serve as the bedrock for the entire cuisine. Once you've gotten a handle on using and cooking with masalas in your day-to-day life, you may be starting to understand the culinary foundations of South Asian cooking. This gift box comes with the well-known garam masala, as well as biryani masala and tandoori masala.

Melissa's Citrus Crate

When the rest of the country is hunkering down from the cold, California is still experiencing warm, sunny days. Winter is the peak season for bright and fresh citrus and some of the best specimens grown in the state come from Melissa's. Gift a bit of California sunshine with this Citrus Crate gift box, which comes packed with 6 pounds of peak-season citrus. The exact types and varieties can vary from week to week, but typically you can expect an assortment of blood oranges, pink grapefruit, Meyer lemons, tangerines, Navel oranges, key limes, and kumquats.

Some of these citrus varieties are great to just eat straight up, while others inspire ideas of tasty savory and sweet recipes. Meyer lemons are amazing when paired with roasted chicken and seafood, but also create delicious baked goods, like pound cake and citrus curd. For something easy and simple, most types of citrus make for an incredible marinade or vinaigrette.

Hickory Farms California Craft Beer Gift Basket

Not all gift baskets are wine and cheese. Craft beer fans will enjoy this California Craft Beer Gift Basket from Hickory Farms, which comes packed with an assortment of beers and paired snacks. The reusable galvanized metal tin comes with a variety of six California craft beers: Anderson Valley Boont Ale, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Racer 5 IPA, Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin, Lost Coast Great White Beer, and Drake's Brewing IPA. Paired with the craft beer selection are a 7-ounce beef summer sausage and a bag of Casa Chicas tortilla chips and a jar of Tenayo chunky salsa to go.

This basket would make the perfect beer flight to enjoy with a few friends, but if you decide to enjoy it all to yourself, we wouldn't blame you. Delicious craft beers also work very well for cooking and could be added to marinades, stews, or braises.

Hill Country Texas Food Gift Box

Texans take their food seriously, and some of the products and snacks made in the state can't be found anywhere else. For true Hill Country food fans, there is nothing better than the Hill Country Gift Basket, a package complete with all the Lone Star state's best offerings. The delectable snacks included in the basket are Cornucopia popcorn, a chocolate bar by Madhu, a Thunderbird Texas maple pecan bar, honey from Austin, AustiNuts Lonestar mix, Lammes Chewie Pecan Pralines, Rambler sparkling water, and a bag of gluten-free Siete tortilla chips.

Travel might be out of the cards, but you can always have Paris (in your mind) with one of these scrumptious gift boxes.

Eastern Standard Provisions Co. Holly Jolly Holiday Gift Box

Some people think that pretzels are just the soft baked good you see sold in carts on the street, whereas others understand the true artistry that goes into this salty, yeasty, savory pastry. The "Holly Jolly" Holiday Gift Box by Eastern Standard Provisions is for the latter group, who take pretzels seriously and demand quality and excellence in each bite.

The box comes full of six fresh-baked Wheelhouse Signature soft pretzels, a bag of turnbuckle soft pretzel sticks, a bag of one-timer soft pretzel bites, a jar of Maui Onion mustard, and classic pretzel salt. These gourmet pretzels are made without preservatives and arrive frozen. They have to either be consumed immediately (don't twist our arm) or frozen until ready to consume. Eastern Standard Provisions also makes Belgian liege waffles, and gift boxes are offered with a combination of both soft pastries, plus more choices for salts, mustards, and sweet sauces to pair with.

Box of Maine 7-item Maine Breakfast Box

There's nothing quite like taking a trip up to the rocky coast of Maine, where the stunning beauty of the stormy Atlantic ocean against the evergreen trees provides the perfect backdrop for cozy little towns full of hardworking fishermen and welcoming diners that serve hot breakfasts as a balm against the cold sea air.
