Organic Gift Ideas: Awaken The Senses Gift Basket by America’s Best Organics

Who doesn’t love a gift basket?

They come in a package of complimentary items and allow the privilege of enjoying various luxuries over an extended period of time. Then there’s the actual basket itself, which is suppose to serve as a presentation platform and/or a keepsake item. As a child, I’ve gotten a few of these. I’d keep them and fill them with all sorts of stuff in an attempt to be organizational. I’d even try to incorporate them in my décor by weaving faux flowers around the handle of the basket. After a while, I’d get tired of it and toss it out with no understanding of where they end up. As an adult, these baskets present a dilemma…what to do with these when all of it’s accompanied treats are long gone?

When I was introduced to America’s Best Organics’ gift “basket” I was intrigued by the simple, but novel idea, a collection of the best organic products in the USA presented in a beautiful, recyclable box.

America’s Best Organics is the only all organic gift basket company in the USA. They present gourmet gift baskets that can be filled with artisan foods, natural body care products, handcrafted wares and more! They have partnered up with approximately 50 vendors after a through review of each company. Gift items are at least 70% organic. Many boast of USDA Organic, Kosher and Fair Trade certifications. You will also find gluten-free and vegan options. Shop for gift baskets by region, occasion, recipient or customize your own.

The basket’s décor comes with an illustration of a serene mountain scene, an inspiring quote and pro-earth sentiments.

A huge THANK YOU to America’s Best for giving ONE of my readers their Awaken the Senses Organic Gift Basket!

Who couldn’t use a bevy of delicious, naturally stimulating goodies to prepare for the holidays?

Awaken the Senses features Runa Guayusa Tea which is similar to yerba mate` in its health and stimulating benefits. Guayusa contains more caffeine than yerba mate`, but less than coffee. Despite my ongoing love affair with yerba mate`, I truly enjoyed guayusa (why-u-sa). I found it a bit more acidic and a LOT more stimulating than yerba mate`. There’s always room at my tea party for new guests. Smile

The Runa Guayusa Tea is accompanied by Madhava Agave Nectar to sweeten the tea.

Your tea experience would not be complete if it didn’t come in a beautifully handcrafted artisan teacup.

Bumble bar's Amazing Almond, Grizzlies Organic Curry Cashew Trail Mix and St. Clair’s Organic Tangerine Tart Candy Pouch make up the rest of the gift. I’m not a fan of hard candy. I’m a chocolate aficionado. I LOVED St. Clair’s Tangerine Tart Candy. I can see how these sweet, little treats can be easily addicting. It’s a good balance of tart and sweet. So YUMMY!
