For $50 You Get A Fantastic Fruit Basket For $75,000 You Get A Little More
If you really want to do something special for someone, you can send them a deluxe fruit basket as a gift. For under $50 you can get a selection of juicy, luscious in season fruit usually accompanied by a variety of gourmet nuts and chocolates. Who wouldn’t welcome having this basket delivered to their doorstep? Fresh citrus is loved by almost everyone, is beautiful to the eye, delicious to eat and is healthy to boot.
Okay maybe you have that one friend who is a bit jaded and your fruit basket will be just another forgettable trinket that they get as a gift. So would you like to really WOW ’em? Well just visit Van’s Gifts and you can arrange for a gift trunk. That’s right a trunk. Actually it’s two trunks full of stuff and will only set you back $75,000.
Seem a bit steep? Just look what you get. Like most pricy gift baskets this one comes with a couple of bottles of wine. Well magnums actually but for $75k you would expect a big bottle right. The wine selection includes a 1996 Dom Perignon Rose, 2001 Chateau d’Yquem Sauternes, 2001 Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 2004 Opus One and 2005 Caymus and of course a little bubbly in the form of a magnum of Armand de Brignac Brut Champagne.
If you are more of a MD 20/20 fan you probably aren’t impressed by those world class vintages but how about this. You get a year long supply of Godiva chocolates and Illy Caf? gourmet coffee! Woo Hoo!
But for the money spent you would hope that you would get more than 6 bottles of wine and some coffee and candy. Van’s, being a reasonable vendor, also tosses in an espresso machine and a pen and pencil set from Montblanc. To sweeten the pot even more, the recipient gets a year long subscription to a monthly gift basket service that delivers even more nuts, candy, fruit, coffee and other goodies. Now talk about value.
Oh, did I mention the price also includes two first class round trip tickets to Paris and premium accommodations for a 3 day tour? And once you get back from gay Paree they will send you to Nappa to taste some of the California wines.
With a little luck your jaded friend lives in a state where it is illegal to mail wine. You can just get him or her lovely fruit basket, include a picture of the gift trunk, and write a card that expresses your regret that they live in such a backward state.
