This gift basket is #sosaintlouis. Perfect for a buddy who just moved to S T L and needs a little taste of Saint Louis Sure to be a hit as a gift for your dinner host. Delightful as a care package for far away loved ones or those visiting home for the holidays.
I personally used an existing, empty gift basket. It’s stuffed with cardboard and green confetti, with a cute ornament hanging from it.
I added scented pine cones ( from Shnucks), and I’ll also add a few tumblers and winter scarves and hats to the basket before I gift it.
I would say that the only thing missing from this basket might be some locally brewed beer, and of course some other delicacies that will not hold up in the basket, like cooked food.
I also recommend adding a gift card to a favorite local restaurant, like IMOs or Sugarfire.
Here’s what I decided to put in my taste of Saint Louis basket:
Old Vienna – Red Hot Ripplets
Les Bourges Riverboat White – Missouri Wine
Gooey Butter Cale Cookies from Schnucks
Not only is this basket everything you crave about St. Louis, it’s also super simple to make.
With grocery delivery service, like Instacart, you can do this in the comfort of your own home, and avoid all the holiday madness in these streets!
There seriously so many great original St. Louis recipes and restaurants. Does your town have special delicacies you’d like to rave about? Why not include your favorites to share with a loved one over the holidays?
