As summer approaches, so too does the season of parties, barbeques, and warm weather get-togethers. So many parties, so little time to get gifts for all the hosts! If you’re looking to go above and beyond the traditional bottle of wine or bouquet of flowers, a hot sauce gift basket is a great way to say thanks and set the mood for the season of sunshine. Taco ‘bout a party, are we right?
Pretty much everyone can get something out of a hot sauce gift basket. After all, it’s perfect for putting on eggs, adding to pizza, serving with tacos or wings, and plenty of other wacky but delicious concoctions; it’s a versatile gift that’s sure to get use during the warmer months of the year. And this gift basket is pretty simple to put together, which makes it perfect for a tasteful last minute gift.
We started with a simple wicker basket – something that not only screams summer sunshine, but is also something the host can re-use long after the sauces have run out. You can find reasonably cheap ones online or in stores like Amazon or World Market. If you want a little bit of extra color for your gift, you can always make and add pom-poms, tassels, or confetti.
Once you’ve done that, simply add your hot sauces. You can buy some of your favorite sauces or pick up a sampler set like our best-selling Good Hurt Fuego hot sauce gift set. Either way, you’re sure to put a smile on the host’s face for giving them something they can use on their own, or for any parties they throw in the future.
Add a handwritten thank you card to go along with the gift! This extra thoughtful touch is sure to put a big smile on the host’s face – plus it’s free! (Hint: everything is better with puns).
