- $ 122.95

Our Dinner For Four may be gourmet, but it’s quick and easy to prepare and enjoy.

Start with a trio of appetizers that need no preparation. We begin with Lemon & Garlic Marinated Chickpeas which are a staple in Mediterranean cuisine. Simple, yet flavorful, they can be served as part of an antipasti appetizer, tossed into salads or as a side dish. For a simple and delicious dip, puree until smooth and serve with warm pita slices.

Our next selection is Caramelized Onion, Fennel & Golden Raisin. Red onions are slow- cooked over low heat until caramelized, then tossed with sauted fresh fennel and plump golden raisins in a delicious savory yet sweet vinegar sauce. Serve as an antipasti appetizer, or use as topping for foccacia bread topped with gorgonzola

We complete our trio with Roasted Sweet Balsamic Peppers. Miniature whole golden and crimson peppers are slow roasted in the oven then drizzled with Italian balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil for a deliciously sweet and savory antipasti, pizza topping or side dish for roasted chicken.

We have one pound of Fussilli pasta to be served with a creamy San Marzano Vodka Sauce.

Adding a salad will be easy with the Lemon Herb Agrumato EVOO.

And for dessert, a gourmet assortment of Venchi Chocolates and Il Perfecto Espresso by Lavazza.

Our meal is artfully presented in a beautiful wooden, shaker style hat box which is reusable and perfect for storing any number of treasures.

The History Of Gift Baskets, We have baby gift baskets that are cute and practical. Perfect for the newborn and new moms.

The History Of Gift Baskets   by Beverly Sugarman

Gift baskets have become a popular gift-giving idea for all occasions from celebrating various holidays to giving good wishes upon the birth of a new baby. What you may not have known is that the idea of giving gifts in baskets goes back to ancient times.

In olden times, people used baskets to carry seeds as they were planting them. During the harvest, they placed the produce that they had reaped into the same baskets. Due to this fact, baskets have often been associated with planting which usually took place in the spring and harvesting that occurred in the fall. As a result many of the ancient gods associated with agriculture are pictured with a basket.

The Germanic people worshipped a goddess named Eostre. Her festival was celebrated during the Spring Equinox and she was closely associated with the month of April. She was the goddess of dawn, agriculture, and fertility. She was associated with symbols that represent the renewal of life, such as eggs to represent new life and planting utensils such as the basket to represent new growth. She was also pictured with a hare, known for its association with reproduction. All these factors have led to the belief the festival of Eostre may have close ties with Easter, along with its colored eggs, the Easter Bunny, and of course, the traditional Easter basket.

The Greek goddess of the harvest and fertility was Demeter. She was also associated with the basket as she used it to carry her seeds. Her daughter Persephone was kidnapped by Pluto, god of the underworld, and in the end the girl only allowed to spend six months of the year with her mother, Demeter's grief during the time away from her daughter caused the winter season. Crops failed to grow and the land became barren. In the spring, Persephone returns to Demeter and the goddess appears with her basket in hand ready to plant new crops. Her daughter also is pictured with a basket as she gathers flowers to take back with her on her return to the dark and barren underworld. Offerings were made to Demeter to ensure a plentiful harvest and many of these offerings included baskets.

Another "gift" that was given in a basket was made by Jochebed, the wife of the Levite Amram. She gave birth to a son in Egypt at a time when all Hebrew male children were being killed by the Pharaoh. Jochebed weaved a basket, placed her son in it, and set him adrift on the Nile. Upon being discovered and adopted by the Pharaoh's daughter, the child was saved and grew up to become Moses, the emancipator of the Hebrews in Egypt. By giving her son as a "gift basket" that was found by the Pharaoh's daughter, this ensured his survival and resulted in Jochebed being directly responsible for giving the gift of freedom to her people a generation later.

The basket has long been associated with the spring and planting and harvesting, and in Moses's case, as a symbol of hope as well. It is no wonder that the tradition of giving gift baskets has survived into modern times.

fathers-day-gifts-shop-earlyGreat gifts for Dad. Select from a wide range of Father's Day Gift Baskets and Father's Day Gifts.

For a child, Father’s day isn’t really about giving Dad a gift. It is about recognizing the gift of caring that fathers express when they help put food on the table, teach their child to ride a bike, cheer at a soccer game, smile at a graduation, give their daughter’s hand in marriage, giggle with a grandchild, and most importantly, act as a channel for God’s love to flow through them into the lives of their children.

For a Father, Father’s day isn’t so much about taking the accolades of a job well done (even though they may be well deserved!), but about giving thanks for the opportunity to give. And remember, the greatest gift that we give our children is the actual expression of our love. It isn’t enough to feel love for them inside ourselves: we need to express that love. Take a moment each day and give your child the kind of hug that can leave no doubt that you really treasure their presence in your life.

Of course, the greatest Dad of all is the father of all life. So let’s take some time this Father’s day to remember our Heavenly Father. Let’s share our innermost hopes, dreams, challenges, temporary setbacks, and victories. And once we have had our say, let’s listen carefully: For God, the Father of us all, may have a gift in store for us, the gift of awareness of His Infinite Loving Presence in our lives.

This provides many options for those in search of gifts for the fishing enthusiast on their gift list. There are endless numbers of options available when shopping online for fishing gear and accessories, and fishing equipment is available in all price ranges to meet every budget and preference. Consider the following gift ideas for the fishing enthusiast on your list, and you will find the perfect gift for any occasion.

Tackle Box

What fishing enthusiast would not love to receive a new tackle box stocked with the latest and greatest fishing supplies? Consider shopping online for a high-quality tackle box, and fill the box with various types and sizes of fishing lures, jigs, bobbers, hooks, stringers, and other fishing supplies. You might also consider including a fillet knife, a tape measure, a scale, and a handy pair of needle nose pliers or a hook remover. The fishing enthusiast on your gift list will be thrilled when they open their tackle box chockfull of fishing supplies.

Fish Locator

Fish locators are very handy tools for pinpointing the best fishing locations since they use high-tech on-screen displays that clearly show specific numbers of fish as well as their depths. Best of all, fish locators are more efficient and more affordable than ever before, and a high-quality fish locator can greatly assist serious fishing enthusiasts. Consider shopping online for a fish finder that locates fish to a depth of at least 800 feet with 60 degrees of detection coverage. Anyone who loves the sport of fishing will appreciate this handy tool that will provide the edge they need to help them catch their daily limit.

Spinning Reel

How about shopping online for a state-of-the-art spinning reel for the fishing buff on your gift list? You will find many varieties of spinning reels, and they are available in all price ranges. If you want to purchase a spinning reel of the highest quality, look for one with a ball-bearing drive, an ABS aluminum spool, a computer balanced rotor, and continuous anti-reverse. You cannot go wrong with this gift when shopping online for someone who loves the sport of fishing.

Spinning Combo

A spinning combo is also a fantastic gift choice for a fishing enthusiast. Look for a spinning combo with a top-quality ball bearing reel with all of the aforementioned qualities, and opt for a state-of-the-art lightweight graphite rod with a high modulus rating. The modulus ratings of graphite rods range between 33 and 60 million, and the higher the modulus, the more sensitive the rod. Although a rod with a higher modulus rating is more fragile, it will provide the serious fishing enthusiast with the most sensitive rod available and one of the best gifts that money can buy when shopping online.
