I had my first experience with brunch just a few years ago. I know, I know, I can’t believe that it took me this long to get into the whole brunch scene, but it did. I mean of course I’d had breakfast around 10 am before because that’s normally the earliest point in the day that I start thinking about food, but I had never really had “brunch”. You know what I mean, brunch, with the croissants, fancy butters, jams, mimosas, wine, fruit, etc. It all seemed so fancy to me and I was quite content with my bowl of cereal or granola bar. Well, that was up until a few years ago when I really experienced brunch for the first time when we were down in Florida. Let me tell you, all it took was one morning of brunch by the water and I was hooked.
It just so happens that over brunch the other weekend, a friend and I were talking about my cooking and crafts; I sure do miss it! I don’t get to craft as much as I used to and I thought that I should probably get back into that! You know what’s better than crafting for myself? Making crafts and gifts for people I love! With that being said, I thought that I’d combine my love of brunch and my need to spoil those special people in my life into one fun gift idea with a Santa Margherita USA Wine Brunch Gift Basket!
I know a few wonderful friends that would be just thrilled with this gift basket. So what do you put into a Wine Brunch Gift Basket? I’m so glad that you asked!
The one that I made to share with you today is packed with homemade strawberry jam and fresh croissants, a jar a homemade honey cinnamon butter and pretzel rolls, a pair of brand new wine glasses and a gorgeous bottle of Santa Margherita’s Pinot Grigio.
Of course you don’t have to make this a brunch themed gift basket but who wouldn’t want to receive this one Saturday morning to start their weekend?! Snacking on a strawberry jam croissant while sipping a glass of Santa Margherita’s Pinot Grigio is exactly how I want to start my morning! Pinot Grigio is a dry white white and the strawberry jam that’s packed into the gift basket is the perfect sweet touch to go with it!
To make this Wine Brunch Gift Basket you’ll need:
- 1 medium basket
- White Curling Ribbon
- Plastic Wrap for Baskets (or Shrink Wrap Plastic)
- 10 sheets of pretty tissue paper
- 1 small jar of homemade strawberry jam (or store-bought)
- 4-6 fresh croissants
- 1 medium jar of homemade honey cinnamon butter (or store-bought)
- 4-5 small pretzel rolls
- 1-2 bottles of Santa Margherita’s Pinot Grigio
Fill the basket with the decorative tissue paper.
Then set all of your items down into the basket.
Tie a few curly ribbons around the wine glass stems and place the wine and the wine glasses together towards the middle of the basket.
Wrap the entire basket in the plastic and tie at the top with the white curly ribbon. Tie the ribbon into a bow and curl the ends.
I picked up a few bottles of Santa Margherita’s Pinot Grigio while I was out the other day and now I feel like I need to go out and grab a few more. I’m so in love with this Santa Margherita’s Pinot Grigio and this gift basket; I want to make a few more for my friends and family!
Have you had the chance to try Santa Margherita’s wines? Santa Margherita is one of the leading premium wine brands and their Pinot Grigio was first introduced in the U.S. back in 1979! I’m currently loving their Pinot Grigio but their bottles of Chianti Classico Riserva and Prosecco are high on my must try list! What would you fill your gift basket with?
