Valentine’s Day 2012 Edible Gift Baskets and Ideas

With the average floral arrangement priced at $50, and a slew of grocery stores carrying an economically priced supply, fewer people will be sending flowers for Valentine’s Day in 2012. The National Retail Federation‘s market survey shows that the average U.S. consumer spends between $102 and $110. To maximize the dollar, the top fruit bouquet companies offer more value. From the edible fruit basket to the discount gift basket, EdibleFruit.org compiled the top picks.

Decadent Edible Gift Basket
If he or she is the apple of your eye, the Fresh Fruit Bouquet Company offers an edible gift basket of a different sort: granny smith apples, cloaked in an assortment of decadent toppings, such as caramel milk chocolate with walnuts; white chocolate with apple pie spice; plain European style chocolate and of course dark chocolate with coconut. What makes this edible gift basket so novel is that gifters choose between dipped apples and pears, the toppings and two size options. A trio is 34.99 and four are 46.99.
