We are often contacted regarding the appropriateness of sympathy gift baskets.  While we may be biased, we truly believe a gift of goodies is a great idea.  Keep in mind, the receiver may be hosting extra visitors than normal.  Allow them to have extra treats on hand even if not for themselves, but for their guests.

And as for wine?  That’s your call!  It is not out of line to send a bottle of wine if you find it appropriate.  About half of our sympathy gift baskets are ordered with a bottle of wine.  If you think it may be appropriate, then we support it.  Simply receiving an unexpected bottle of wine during these times may be just the thing they need to smile!
