There are two things in life that we all have in common: we all have birthdays and we all eat. So why not combine the two and give the perfect birthday gift in the form of gourmet food! If your dad loves salty snacks or you need a cake to feed a whole party (or just yourself, should the mood strike), this list has gastronomical gifts for everyone — from birthday gift baskets and baked treats to sweets and snacks, and fresh fruit. Some gifts even come with wine!

Favorite birthday gifts in a basket.

Deluxe Birthday Basket

When in doubt, stick with a classic gift. This Deluxe Birthday Basket features a variety of treats crafted in the Harry & David candy kitchen, including a delicious chocolate swirl cake, confetti Moose Munch popcorn, and premium pears. This collection of goodies comes packed in a festive woven straw basket and will delight any recipient.

Favorite birthday gifts in a large picnic basket.

Picnic Basket Gift

Do they prefer salty snacks over birthday sweets? This woven chipwood picnic basket comes with three-seed crackers, Thuringer summer sausage, peanut butter pretzels, and Royal Verano Pears. The birthday boy or girl may want to eat everything themselves, but convince them it's the perfect gift to take to the beach or the park and enjoy with their loved ones.
