VERO BEACH, Fla., Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- There are dozens of different reasons to give gifts – to communicate emotion, to commemorate an event, to celebrate a special event, and probably dozens more.

But the secret to brilliant gift giving rests in the theory and practice of emotional pitch. Namely, how do you use a gift basket to say exactly what you want to say? Like the voice, the pitch of an emotion hits the correct note and becomes a thing of beauty. Gift baskets communicate a lot, but using them to say the right thing takes a little planning. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Wine gift baskets – Have you ever noticed that a toast commemorates the most important milestones of our lives? Weddings, graduations, awards dinners, promotions, anniversaries…  They're especially lovely for Valentine's Day and other times when you want a wealth of romance in your message. A wine gift basket, like those found at Wine Country Gift Baskets.com, include a selection of wines but often include additional treats as well. Chocolate, crackers, pastries, and other accompaniments are put into a lovely display presentation alongside the wine choices.
  2. Chocolate Gift Baskets – the basket isn't actually made of chocolate (of course), but gift baskets of chocolate treats and delicacies are sumptuous, romantic, and maybe even a little decadent. They're definitely a more… intimate gift than other kinds of gift baskets. For top-of-the-line chocolate treats, Ghirardelli Chocolates and Godiva offer probably the most luxurious choices.
  3. Fresh Citrus Fruit Baskets – The right gift for the health-conscious, premium fruit gift baskets and gift towers are appropriate for virtually any occasion. Their many different motifs and varieties – and mixed-fruit varieties especially – communicate everything from "I love you" to "Congratulations on your promotion." Online retailers like Hale Groves can deliver nationwide.

Take your time and consider what choice will make the right surprise for your recipient. One word of caution: delivery of gift baskets ordered online can take several days. Shipping preparation and transport time means you should plan to order several days in advance. Carefully read the company's shipping policies before placing your order.
