Holiday Gift Baskets

Christmas is just over two weeks away, and I still have family members to shop for! Recently, I’ve been thinking about giving something beautiful, simple, and well-received: a gift basket. In fact, fresh USA Pears are used in many holiday gift baskets, including these beauties from fellow pear lovers:
Known for their extravagant gift towers and picture-perfect pears, Harry and David never disappoint. They’re located in the heart of Medford, Oregon, one of the main growing regions of USA Pears. Check out their bounty here.
The Fruit Company: Their name and presentation may be simple, but their product will bowl you over. Every pear included in their watercolor gift boxes is grown in their own orchards in Hood River, Oregon. They have baskets for every holiday! Click here to see your options.
Based in Wenatchee, Washington, Bountiful Fruit offers a variety of fresh local fruit, including the vanilla-sweet Concorde pear. Visit their website to see their holiday offerings.
Naumes Fruit Gifts is a company with heart: they’ll match every gift purchase pound for pound with a fresh fruit donation to a nearby food bank! They offer everything from pear bath and body products to Pear Club membership! See their website for details. And don’t tell my dad what he’s getting for Christmas!
