Low-Stress Holidays: The Art of the Gift Basket

2017-12-01_13-04-42via ApartmentTherapy.com – Growing up, I remember the time leading up to Christmas being weeks that my mother had the makings of her annual gift baskets strewn throughout our infrequently used formal dining room. Baskets or buckets, Carrs crackers, pepper jellies, candied pecans were a few of the items. Oh, and rolls and rolls of cellophane and ribbon. Our dining room became her own little elf workshop where she carefully put together anywhere from 10-50 gifts for the people in her life – co-workers, teachers, neighbors, and distant relatives who might unexpectedly drop by for a holiday visit.

While I personally couldn’t stand the look of cellophane and curled ribbons (I know, what 10-year-old isn’t into curled ribbons?), I did appreciate the attention she put into making the perfect gift basket. It is, in fact, an art.

If you’ve turned your nose up at gift baskets in the past, I’m with you. They can be tacky, impersonal, and sometimes just full of, how shall I say, crap. But knowing how much time and effort my mother put into creating the perfect assortment, it might just be the way to go this holiday season – especially if you’re gifting to the masses.

Follow these simple guidelines for the best gift basket:

  1. Pick a theme. Having a game plan helps guide you in all your purchases. Think themes like A Cozy Night At Home, Family Game Night, Gifts for Hosting, or End-of-Semester Teacher Survival Kit to get you on the right track.
  2. Start with a good container. Pick something that can easily be reused or repurposed. And by all means, don’t just go for a brown basket! (See our favorite picks below.)

Top 5 Coffee Shops In The Morristown Area

4632382536_165ce81baf_o-1504275645-5368After a long summer of iced coffee and lemonades, fall is fast approaching and with it, pumpkin spice everything. Love pumpkin spice lattes? Just looking for a really great cup of coffee? Here are some local coffee shops Morristown Yelpers love.

The Artist Baker: “The cutest little bakery and café that is tucked away on a busy but still a side street off of the green. The bike hanging as decoration out front is what caught my eye at first and I’m glad that it drew me in. I had a freshly brewed iced tea with my baked cheddar & kale scone one late afternoon.”

Best of the Best: @JockeyHollowBK

The NJ Monthly’s annual list of the absolute best restaurants to eat in New Jersey. Congratulations Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen

2016-08-31_11-49-20Chef Kevin Sippel, 39, oversees one of the most multi-faceted and ambitious restaurant under one roof in New Jersey. JHBK, as staffers call it, is actually three restaurants on three levels.

All serve food as deep in flavor and steeped in tradition as it is informed by modern cooking techniques and ideals like local, seasonal ingredients, meat produced without growth stimulants and so on.

Top floor is the fine dining, mainly prix-fixe Dining Room; main floor the hip, casual Oyster Bar and Vail Bar; ground floor the German-themed Rathskeller (live music on weekends).

Delights range from a superb raw bar to entrancing pastas, a roasted carrot soup beyond all expectations, pork schnitzel with mushroom cream sauce and one of the most atavistically satisfying burgers around. All this plus terrific wine pairings—a specialty of owner Chris Cannon—and great cocktails from mixologist James Gelmi. Read the January 2015 Review. 110 South Street, 973-644-3180.
