12 Fall Gift Basket Ideas To Show You CareVIA MERCHANT

A-tisket, a-tasket, a brown and orange fall basket! Who wouldn’t want one?

Gift-giving season doesn’t necessarily begin until closer to Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, but at Taste of Home, we’re in the business of giving gifts year-round. In fact, we think it’s the best way to show those you love that you care about and are thinking of them. Hence, we’re big fans of fall gifts.

This roundup includes all of our favorites, for all of your favorites. Whether your recipient is a sweet tooth, an aspiring beer cicerone or a Halloween diehard, you’ll find something for them.

And don’t stress the cost, either. Gift baskets get a bad rap as ultra-pricey presents, and, yes, we do have some of those over-the-top, deluxe ones for your bougie buds. But there are also selections on this list that cost less than $40. So, anyone can find a gift that they (and their wallet) feel good about giving.

Now, get ready to immerse yourself in all things fall, from nuts and hand pies, to amber ales and caramel apples.
