Harry & David’s Harvest to Holiday and Martha Stewart’s Gift Basket GIVEAWAY

Last month I was able to visit Harry and David’s business in my hometown, Medford, Oregon. Harry and David are fabulous gift givers–I know because I was given a beautiful Harvest to Holidays gift basket featuring Martha Stewart’s new book Pies and Tarts.

I want to let readers know that Harry and David offers many baskets on their site, where you can choose which one and price works within your budget! It’s a very beautiful site and easy to navigate through.

But let me back up a bit. In the afternoon of our visit I was able to actually tour the gift basket department, as we got to make one of our own. Harry and David is trying to give an entire gift experience, so the packaging and the personalization of the gifts is important.

So lovely.

I adored meeting Pauline, who has worked at H&D for years. She even knew my 92 year-old Auntie who was a retiring supervisor (she devoted her life to H&D) just as she was coming to work there, many years ago.

They have a very elaborate process for packing the baskets and it goes like this.

You follow a chart, pack the basket, and then tuck the plastic around the basket so it won’t unravel.

There’s always a personalized note with the name of the person who packed the basket.

The ribbon gets tied and then a beautiful bow is wrapped around the basket … the finished product! (Every single bow is hand-tied to perfection!)

Here’s my friend, Sarah, who lives in Portland, Oregon and blogs at Go Gingham. We were basket-packing partners and had a great time together.

And Selena, from The Farm Chicks, also working with Pauline.

Because I’m excited to share the bounty and my H&D experience with my readers, I asked H&D if I could give away the same Harvest to Holidays basket away on RE, so are you ready to WIN?

And are you ready to kick off the holiday hospitality season?

Harry and David’s Harvest to Holidays gift basket is a perfect gift for the person who loves hospitality. One lucky winner will WIN this beautiful basket (value $139.95) which includes the following items and Martha Stewart’s Pies and Tarts cookbook. Thank you H&D!

6 Royal Riviera® Pears

    How timely that I read this today!…. Tomorrow I’m baking three pumpkin pies – two for our church’s Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless and one for my family. I’m not the best baker, but pumpkin pie can’t be messed up, right? Happy Thanksgiving!
