Holiday Gift Basket for Foodies

December is here and I’m so excited for all the gift giving, decorations and celebrations! If you’ve got a food lover in your life, then you’re going to love this Holiday Gift Basket for Foodies idea. I’ve teamed up with Vons to bring you this fun gift featuring their awesome line of Signature RESERVE goodies. I’m an avid shopper of Vons because of their quality ingredients and the value I find in their products. Their Signature RESERVE line offers an elevated culinary experience with unique flavors. The beautiful packaging makes for a top-quality gift basket when it all comes together. Check out how you can make a Holiday Gift Basket for Foodies below!

The first steps in creating a beautiful holiday gift basket for foodies is collecting all the items. I wanted to go with an authentic Italian gift basket because the ingredients are so rich, beautiful and comforting. These types of baskets are always fun to give or receive because they are so versatile. This Italian gift basket features Signature RESERVE Pomodoro Marinara, Tomato Basil and Tomato Parmesan pasta sauce as well as Penne Rigate and Fusilli pasta. I picked up a large, holiday-themed bowl and kitchen towels to bring the basket together. I purchased all of the items at my local Vons but you can also get these at Albertsons or Pavilions.

My family is part Italian and maybe my favorite part because of the delicious heritage. Almost all of my family is big on eating Italian food at least once a week. My mom’s favorite dinner is pasta and my aunt makes a mean lasagna. We make pasta all the time too, especially when we want an easy or quick dinner. These high-quality ingredients taste like their made fresh each day.

If you don’t have a foodie in your life, these still make great gifts! If you need a hostess gift, a present for your child’s teacher, or a secret santa gift, this would be awesome for that too. You could even include a gift card to make this a “dinner and a movie” gift. Whatever your gifting heart desires! I know exactly who I will be gifting this too but I can’t share that here!

While I was working on this gift basket, I learned that Signature RESERVE pastas are cut using traditional bronze dies to create a porous surface that perfectly absorbs sauce, then slow dried for optimal flavor and texture. How awesome is that?!

Make your holiday gift basket special with ultra-premium Signature RESERVE products. I buy my Signature RESERVE products at my local Albertsons, Pavilions, and Vons, and you can also find them exclusively at all the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Safeway, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, and Carrs/Safeway. Visit to find a store near you.

If you’re in the market to create a Holiday Gift Basket for Foodies, you’ve got to give this one a try! Enjoy! xo -Bri
