Baskets laden with delicious foods have played an integral role in diplomacy ever since the exchange of a basket of naughty children led to the Human-Bogeyman Accords of 1317. Maintain your own diplomatic relations with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of gift baskets and more at Fruit Basket King. This Groupon is valid for online orders only and does not cover tax or shipping.
Based in Caldwell, New Jersey, Fruit Basket King ships its finely fashioned baskets of fresh, hand-selected fruit, mixed nuts, and chocolates throughout the country in beautifully arranged displays complete with ribbons, bows, and trick candles. Customers can make a simple gesture of generosity with a 2-pound deluxe nut mix ($25.95), which features cashews, walnuts, almonds, and more. For something sweeter, opt for The Darrelle ($47.95), a plentiful pile of fruit stacked on top of a 2-pound tin of Danish cookies and decorated with hard candies. Otherwise, confront a loved one about their raging chocoholism with the Chocolate Lover ($47.95), a collection of Ghirardelli chocolates, Lindt milk-chocolate truffles, fudge, cookies, and more—all displayed in a rattan basket that can be converted into a fancy hat for Derby Day and Wicker Man galas.
Fruit Basket King shows off its admirable basket panoply in an online catalog, conveniently broken down into common occasions such as birthday presents, gourmet gifts, and desperate bribes. Kosher and holiday packages are available as well, along with golf-, baby-, and new-home-themed baskets. A gift basket from Fruit Basket King—coupled with its personalized greeting card—lets you articulate your feelings with fewer mixed signals than the traditional trash hopper full of pre-owned Valentine’s Day roses.

To commemorate myriad occasions, Fruit Basket King nestles fruit, nuts, chocolate, and baked goods in themed wicker baskets dressed up with ribbons and bows. The Baby Carriage package, complete with stuffed teddy bear, lemon straws, and almond tea cookies, commemorates the arrival of a bouncing baby boy or girl, and the New Home gift box celebrates baby's first mortgage with cookies, milk chocolate, and butter-toffee pretzels. Each basket is made to order and can be delivered with a handwritten gift card.
