Holiday Gift Guide:

I love gift baskets, especially during the holidays. They just seem so festive, fun and easy to give. When I found out I would be doing a review with, I knew it would be fun and festive! I was right, and now my family has a gorgeous centerpiece on our kitchen table to remind us that the holidays are upon us. Can you believe there are only 19 days until Christmas?? It seems like Halloween was yesterday!

For review we were sent the gorgeous and delicious Nutcracker Drum Christmas Gift Basket. This baby does not disappoint! Everything comes very well protected in the box, so it is ready to give as a gift or to set out as a centerpiece like we have done. Take a look at how beautiful it is:

Here is a list of all the goodies you will find inside:

· Red Nutcracker Cookie by Nikki's Cookies - .75 oz. - An all natural sugar cookie covered in dark chocolate, shaped like a nutcracker.
· Green Nutcracker Cookie by Nikki's Cookies - .75 oz. - Another chocolate nutcracker cookie of Nikki's boasts ingredients like Wisconsin farmer's butter.
· Chocolate Peppermint Cookie Brittle by Holly Baking Co. - 6 oz. - This amazing delicacy has a cookie taste and brittle crunch, covered with chocolate and peppermints.
· Peanut Brittle by Old Dominion Peanut Company - 10 oz. - A staple holiday treat, this Old Dominion Peanut Brittle will leave them wanting more!
· Butter Wafers by Lady Walton - 2 oz. - Light and decadent, these Butter Wafers are melt in your mouth delicious and are perfect for our holiday baskets.
· White Chocolate Amaretto Filled Wafers by Lady Walton - 2 oz. - White chocolate and amaretto give an indulgent twist on a classic favorite.
· English Toffee Caramels by Marich - 2.1 oz. - Milk chocolate surrounds toffee flavored caramel. Do we need to say more?
· Peanut Roll by Dillon's Gourmet - 3 oz. - Sweetly salty roasted peanuts and rich caramel encompass a nougat center of heaven.
· Praline Pecans by Dillon's Gourmet - 2.5 oz. - This creamy pecan delight is a Southern, old fashioned recipe and that's why you'll see it so many of our Christmas gift baskets.

Everything is so well arranged and it looks too good to rip in to and eat! Don't worry though, my kids have made sure goodies are being eaten. This would make an incredible addition to any holiday party or get together. If you find yourself being invited to parties, consider bringing along one of these gift baskets. You're bringing something to the party and giving a Christmas gift all in one. I don't know who wouldn't LOVE receiving this as a Christmas gift!
