Holiday Fruit Basket

A fruit basket filled with fresh, seasonal fruit and sweet treats is ideal for health-conscious individuals during the holidays.


When it comes to creating a fruit basket, it’s important to choose the right fruits. While there are many fresh fruits to choose from, not all of them are suitable for a fruit basket. For example, fruits like blueberries and raspberries are prone to staining the basket when they are squashed or left out for too long. To avoid this, it’s best to choose firm fruits like crisp apples, pears, and oranges that can withstand the fruit delivery process whether you mail the basket or transport it yourself. However, if you’re delivering the fruit basket yourself over a short distance, you can include any types of fruits you like. You can choose from a variety of fruits such as grapes, bananas, pineapples, strawberries, and any other fruits that you fancy. When you make a fruit basket yourself, you can select any type of fruit and other delicious offerings to fill it. You get to pick and choose!



  1. Arrange the fruit in the basket visually pleasingly, then embellish it with ribbons or bows!
