Going Green

March is the month to "Spring Forward". We advance our clocks, become Irish for a day, and rejoice as the days start to get warmer and plants start to spring up. We are becoming more "Green", not just for St. Patrick's Day, but in our growing concern for our environment.

This month we launched a new and improved website for Baskets by Bonnie, which includes some new, Eco-friendly products. In an effort to become more "user-friendly", we've added shopping carts and a secure gateway for credit cards to allow for 24/7 ordering without any "unnecessary" conversation. However, we still offer the same great customer service and availability during business hours to take your order by phone.

A Fresh New Look

At Baskets By Bonnie, we found there was a growing need for more efficient orders and payments . With the new and improved website, all orders can be made quickly, at any time of any day, entirely online, and without conversation. Order a basket with just a click of the mouse to enhance your shopping convenience.

We are still available to work with you by phone for any and all special orders!

Made to Order

We've added the ability to customize your basket of choice on our new, user-friendly website. With the option of adding any mug, book or game to a basket, each gift can be personalized with a click.

First order the gourmet gift of your choice and then visit our special categories:

* Wine
* Books
* Mugs

* Totes
* Puzzles & Games

Simply add the additional items you would like included in your gift to your shopping cart for a one-of-a-kind gift that is sure to be a hit!

"Greening-Up" Our Inventory

We recently added some new, organic Chilean wines from Eco Balance that take a biodynamic approach to wine-making. Eco wines make their vines as healthy as possible without using pesticides.

Eco Balance Carmenére is a medium-bodied, ruby-red wine with a smoky, strawberry-cherry nose followed by a plush-layered finish. A classic match with game, lamb, or beef and hard cheeses.

Eco Balance Chardonnay is a fruity palate with a hint of lime and grapefruit followed by an oaky, lush finish with light tones of butter. Excellent with white meats, smoked meats and creamy pasta dishes.

When shopping at the gourmet grocery for appetizers to accompany these organic wines, further your "all-natural" experience by using our Eco-friendly totes.
