Choosing the right gift basket is like choosing the perfect birthday card. It’s not just how it looks on the outside, but what it says on the inside that counts. There are many reasons to give a gift basket, from sending condolences, to simply saying hi to a faraway friend, to thanking a host for a special meal. With the holiday of Purim coming up soon, everyone is looking for the right basket to send. I’m excited to tell you I’ve found the ultimate kosher gift basket right here in New York City!
Manhattan Fruitier opened in 1987 with the goal of making fresh fruit baskets of unequaled beauty and quality. Instead of cheap cellophane and styrofoam, they reinvented the fruit basket with inspiration from old world Dutch still life paintings. Soon after they launched, the New York Times said, ”Manhattan Fruitier does for fruit what florists do for flowers”, 20+ years later and they are still proving themselves to be the premier gift basket company around.
I visited their new office a few months ago and you can easily see the care they take in creating baskets with the highest quality fruits -- from locally grown pears to the more exotic rambutan and baby pineapples. They even take the extra effort to send a selection of fruits that will ripen at different times so the gift can be enjoyed over a longer period of time.
Since fruit is naturally kosher it is not hard for Manhattan Fruitier to assemble kosher baskets, but they carefully selected a range of certified baked goods, candies and honey that meet their high standards of quality and kosher certification.
This year, Manhattan Fruitier has put together several special Purim kosher gift baskets starting at $49.50 for the mouthwatering Purim Party pictured above. The full range of Purim baskets feature a mix of baked rugelach, chocolate covered pomegranate seeds, nougat, falafel chips, fresh fruits and even wine. Manhattan Fruitier has teamed up with a local wine retailer so you can add a bottle that can be packed and shipped along with your gift basket. Choose from Hagafen Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2012 ($29), Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 ($59) and Domaine du Castel Grand Vin 2009 ($79). All the Purim baskets can be shipped nationwide and all kosher certification information is listed on their website.
