Though the stork originally delivered its cargo in gift baskets, the vessels ultimately proved impractical because recipients would shirk child-rearing duties to sort the included jellybeans by color and shape. Bear a gift without the responsibility with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of themed gift baskets and holiday décor at Executive Baskets, with two locations in the Galleria.
The staff at Executive Baskets arranges ornate gift packages that teem with treats such as candy canes, chocolates, and pretzels alongside a slate of unassembled holiday finds bedecking two separately themed stores. Shoppers can browse the merchant's gift-basket location to surprise a loved one with the Holiday Best Buy basket's cornucopia of sweets, including Santa graham cookies, caramel popcorn, and chocolate-crunch cookies ($34.95). A Texas-themed Country Christmas basket loaded with chili mix, salsa, and habanero pretzel nuggets ($44.95) pays homage to the Lone Star state, and the Santa basket ($12.95), just like the head of the real Santa, is filled with chocolate-coated pretzels. The Merry Munchie basket ($54.95) brims with a combination of snack mix, peanut brittle, and candy canes. Alternatively, the Christmas-décor store trims its expansive racks with eye-catching tree ornaments, colorful nutcrackers, and other holiday adornments.
