Now that Valentine’s Day has come and gone, you’ve probably had enough chocolate to last the rest of the year—or, maybe not, since there’s no such thing as enough chocolate. But, if you’re looking for a diet-conscious chocolate alternative to satisfy that sweet tooth, why not try some natural juicy sugar from an arrangement of fresh fruit? Everybody likes fruit, which is why these baskets and platters make for the best finger snacks at any event or function.
These Toronto shops offer fruit baskets worthy of any occasion.
Good 4 You Gift Baskets
Good 4 You Gifts is home to Toronto’s best healthy gift arrangements. The North York shop offers plenty of delicately and deliberately arranged fruit baskets arranged in gorgeous wicker baskets or one-of-a-kind pots and vases. The Nature’s Harvest Fruit Bouquet is for that special someone, resembling the most beautiful flower bouquet with strawberry flower buds and orange-slice petals. Who wouldn’t love a bouquet that’s both beautiful and edible?
Aptly named, this downtown shop offers fruit baskets that come decadently packed with the freshest hand-picked fruit you can find from pears and oranges to kiwis and apples. Depending on the occasion you’re celebrating, you can choose a fruit basket that includes a bottle of sparkling water, gourmet crackers, cheese, and—in case you haven’t had enough this week—chocolates and cookies. With a pineapple standing tall in the back and small bundles of grapes decorating the front, these assortments are pleasing to the eyes and taste buds!
With same day shipping across Toronto, My Baskets is the place to shop for a last-minute apology gift if you forgot Valentine’s Day this year. The Healthy Fruit and Gourmet Gift Basket comes with 12 fruits ranging from the sourest tangerines to the crispiest apples and tangiest kiwis. To make sure this basket isn’t too healthy, it also includes a quality block of brie, sea salt crackers, caramel-coated popcorn, and dark chocolate. All of this comes wrapped in cellophane and decorated with a hand-made satin bow.
While this Thornhill catering company has been recognized for offering the best sandwiches in the city, their fresh fruit arrangements are just as delicious and fresh. Lesley’s elaborate and colourful fruit displays can be ordered as a basket, on a tray, in a tower, or as a kebab skewer. Name any fruit and Lesley’s will probably have it served on a platter. Who knew there were so many fruity options?
The Gourmet Goodness Fruit Basket available at Toronto Flower Co. is a sweet, healthy and delicious gift for any fruit lover. Complete with Braeburn and Granny Smith apples, D’Anjou pears, mandarin oranges, and a grapefruit, this basket will be appreciated by friends, family and co-workers for any occasion, no matter how big or small. The vibrant-coloured fruit are displayed in a woven handled basket and topped with a shiny golden bow.
