Are you making your holiday shopping list and checking it twice? If so, make sure you don't forget to add gift baskets to it! 

Similar to a gift card, gift baskets are also one of the universal Christmas gift ideas we can always count on come the holiday season, but the best part? When done correctly, a gift basket includes your personal touch. 

Whether you're shopping for a friend, colleague, or loved one, gift baskets offer a wide selection of everything from wine to coffee, and most favorably, popcorn. Every single custom concoction is more swoon-worthy than the last, and after the year we have all had? It also is the most socially-distant way to remind everyone just how much you care. Amazing!

It is, and the only thing better is that Gourmet Gift Baskets is offering so many seasonal offerings with an extra 10% off when using promo code: SENDJOY at checkout. 

Meaning, there's never been a better time to send your loved ones some comfort and joy, and the best way to do just that? By adding these seven gift baskets to your cart ASAP.
