Fanciful Gift Baskets

Twenty-five years ago, Terry August was making gift baskets for her friends at her kitchen table. Encouraged by their enthusiasm and insistence on paying her for her artistically arranged wares, she decided to start a gift-basket business—and Fanciful was born. Today, with the help of her husband Wally, Terry seeks out new imports and hard-to-find products to fill out a vast inventory of wines, cheeses, chocolates, and other delicacies. Drawing from this enormous selection, Terry and her staff put together gift baskets on themes such as natural and organic foods or Italian cuisine. They can also design custom baskets for special events, such as the birth of a very hungry baby. At the storefront, Terry and Wally also lead wine-, cheese-, and chocolate-tasting classes, illuminating groups on the nuanced notes and origins of fine foods.

My friend and I had a great time. I loved the fact that the setting was very personal. Great customer service, by both the owners and their staff. Very memorable birthday gift for my friend, we both loved it. Thank you!
