Voted among the best gift-basket providers in the Valley Advocate's 2010 Best of the Valley readers' poll, Laurel Mountain provides customers with tasteful solutions to gift-giving dilemmas. Welcome new humans to Earth with a Baby Buggy basket ($49.95) sporting snuggly stuffed friends, a bottle, and other infant essentials, or thank a cocoa-crazy coworker for years of borrowed paperclips and collating advice with a Chocolate Delights basket ($49.95) filled with cookies, truffles, and fudge. Laurel Mountain's assortment of assemblages includes numerous holiday baskets, such as a Hot Stuff! Valentine's basket ($49.95) loaded with a heart-melting mix of barbecue sauce, salsa, and other gastro-goodies, as well as care packages ($24.95–$34.97) to let off-site offspring know they're never too far to escape your benevolent grasp. To ensure freshness, baskets aren't assembled until orders are placed, and each includes a handwritten card with a message of your creation, allowing you to partner your package with a pig Latin haiku or romantic limerick.
