How To: Make a Gourmet Food Gift Plate

Have you ever considered purchasing a gourmet food gift? In many cases it can be the perfect gift. When you are stumped and just can’t decide what to give, when the receiver is one of those people who has everything, when your recipient is someone you don’t know very well, then offering a gift with a variety of flavors and choices can really fit the bill. An added bonus to creating your own gourmet gift plate, or basket, or bowl, or even a small mug is that you gave it your personal touch. It is so much nicer than buying a gift basket off the shelf.

When deciding what to collect you can opt for healthier choices or work with a theme. Here are some cute ideas:

 

Movie Time Snacks


Candy Boxes
Microwave Popcorn
Coca-cola in Glass Bottles

Christmas Cheer

Hot Cocoa
Candy Canes
Decorated Cookies

Birthday Bucket

Champagne
Champagne Glass
Candles
Chocolate Truffles
Cupcake

Healthy Harvest


Dried Fruits
Nuts
Dried Vegetables

Cheese and Crackers


Spreadable Cheese
Deli Meats
Crackers

Pet Friendly


Pet Treats
Pet Toys
Collar and Coat
Clean up Bags

It is really simple to place your items decoratively, and wrap up your gift either by using plastic cling wrap and for even more fun try shrink wrap! Shrink wrap gives your gift a beautiful, professional finishing touch and it can be purchased in different sizes. This is a great item to keep on hand with your gift wraps and cards. In my video I had not planned ahead for this gift, so I used plastic cling wrap from Costco. This plastic wrap if very clingy, and works well in a pinch, but I would have preferred to finish this plate in the video with a shrink wrap.
