Special Events in New Orleans, LA

Premium Wine and Gourmet Basket

Premium Wine and Gourmet Basket
Send this delicious and beautifully presented basket to those you wish to impress or congratulate. Your choice of two well-regarded wines or one bottle of distinctive champagne is nestled in a traditional basket filled with an array of delicious foods guaranteed to be please. Imagine the delight of the recipient to discover not only the wine, but a basket filled with a variety of specialty foods such as crackers, cheese, dips, cookies, candies, teas, or coffees. When only the finest is required, this wine basket is a perfect choice.

New Orleans, the melting pot of music, food, and culture, will truly be a unique, enjoyable, and memorable experience for any visitor. Tourists have their pick of festivals: music, culinary, art, multi-cultural, film & literary, as well as theater. Quite a few special events to enjoy while visiting New Orleans are the festivals. There are multiple festivals taking place throughout the year.

There are sports events such as the Sugar Bowl, held at the Superdome, in January. Even though the game is the most anticipated event, there’s also a pep rally, sailing, basketball, horse racing, and more. Other sporting events are the Zurich Golf Classic, for golfers, and the Crescent City Classic, the largest 10k race, for runners.

The top festival in New Orleans is the ever-popular Mardi Gras held in February. More than a parade, Mardi Gras is a celebration with madness and music, romance and revelry, parades, colorful floats, beads, and more. In order to understand the spirit of Mardi Gras, it has to be experienced upfront.

New Orleans also has the Jazz & Heritage Festival (Jazz Fest) which takes place the last weekend of April on the Fair Grounds Race Course. Featuring 13 stages, it showcases almost every genre of music and helps preserve the city’s music culture. With over 60 food vendors, craft booths, and artists demonstrations this special event is fascinating and entertaining.

Food festivals are a delicious special event to partake in. Savor the succulent flavor of shrimp, at the Shrimp Festival in September. Enjoy alligator burgers and fried alligator at the Alligator Festival also held in September. The Voodoo Music Festival takes place in October at City Park, just in time to cast a spell of fun and festivities over the entire city. With plenty to do for the whole family, the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival in November celebrates the “hoagie” or “submarine sandwich.”

Close out the old year with a bang, and ring in the New Year at the biggest outdoor celebration in the city. At the New Year’s Eve festival in December everyone can party to their heart’s content. This special event takes place from Bourbon Street to Jackson Square. Instead of watching a ball drop, spectators get to count down as the Baby Bacchus descends from Jax Brewery.

Impress Your Dad With A Father's Day Gift Basket

Picking out just the right Father's Day gift for your Dad isn’t always an easy task. 
Maybe your dad is the strong silent type who doesn’t ever give any clues about what he wants for Father’s Day, or maybe he just insists that you don’t need to get him anything at all.

When you’re not sure what to buy, a gift basket for Father's Day can be an excellent option. 
Father's Day gift baskets allow you to present your dad with something that is both creatively arranged and filled with things that he loves. There are many benefits of sending a gift basket for dad through the mail versus giving a traditional gift, and here are just a few.
Personalization of Father's Day Gift Baskets
Father’s Day sport themed gift baskets come in a wide variety of themes, from fishing and hunting to horses. Rather than choosing a gift basket based on the design theme, you can also send dad a gourmet food basket based on the foods that he loves. Anything from coffee and wine to chocolates and drink m…

Make it Personal: Why Your Mom Will Love a Mother's Day Gift Basket

What do you usually give your Mom on Mother's Day?
Flowers or candies might seem the obvious choice, but could you think of something more memorable to show the special lady in your life that you care? Even for the Mom who's 'got it all,' a Mother's Day gift basket is the perfect gift for Mother's Day.

You can also find pampering gift baskets, gardening gift baskets, and m…

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
