Hartford Gift Baskets

Hartford is among the oldest cities in the U.S., with a history that goes back about 400 years. The city is home to many of the nation’s oldest attractions, including the oldest public art museum, the Wadsworth Atheneum; the oldest public park, Bushnell Park; the oldest continuously published newspaper, The Hartford Courant; the second-oldest secondary school, Hartford Public; and the Mark Twain House. All these “old” places contain a lot of historical significance that makes the city special.

If you are looking for a special gift for someone who’s important to your personal history — maybe an elderly grandparent, father, mother, or friend in Hartford — our Hartford gift baskets pay tribute to the best “classic” treats, all of which have stood the test of time. From our freshly dipped strawberries and sweet and salty nuts to our chocolates, caramels, and gourmet cakes, we have plenty of special ways to celebrate someone who has lived a long (and sweet!) life.

For several decades following the American Civil War, Hartford was the country’s wealthiest city. In 2004, the Hartford metropolitan area ranked second behind San Francisco in national per capita economic activity. Hartford is currently ranked 32nd out of 318 metropolitan areas in terms of its economic production. With the city’s wealth in mind, we have made sure our gift baskets delivered to Hartford always include items “rich” in flavor! Try our decadent, rich chocolate three-layer cakes. Or, enjoy our chocolate cake pops with gold and silver sparkles. There’s no better way to congratulate your loved ones on a recent financial success — from a new job, sold property or even lottery winnings!

Hartford’s economic prosperity prompted Mark Twain to write of it: "Of all the beautiful towns it has been my fortune to see, this is the chief.” Twain was one of many famous authors who lived in the city. His next-door neighbor was Harriet Beecher Stow. Wallace Stevens, the poet, also resided there, as well as Dominick Dunne and John Gregory Dunne. Other influential Hartford figures include financier and industrialist J.P. Morgan, dictionary author Noah Webster, and inventor Sam Colt. Famous entertainers who have called Hartford home include Katharine Hepburn, Linda Evans, William Gillette, Charles Nelson Reilly and Norman Lear.

We also have Hartford to thank for many of our country’s musical greats. Singer Sophie Tucker (1884 – 1966) has gone down in history as the "last of the red-hot mamas.” And there’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Mike Carabello of the band Santana. These artists both “bring the heat,” so why not celebrate them with our hot sauce Hartford food gift baskets? Our spicy flavors include red pepper, green jalapeno and “Crying Tongue.” Also, fans of Hartford local Mark McGrath can pay tribute to the “sweetness” of Sugar Ray with our sweet mixed nuts and dipped berries. These sugary delights make perfect snacks for munching on during concerts.

If your daughter or son is attending Hartford’s Trinity College, the University of Connecticut or even nearby Yale University, our Hartford gift basket delivery service guarantees to send his or her favorite treats directly to the dorm! Choose from our juicy apples, fresh-dipped strawberries, mixed nuts and chocolate cake pops. You can’t go wrong with snacks your kids can share with new friends or chew on while studying — or while tailgating before the big game! And speaking of sports, Hartford locals will love our Hartford birthday gift baskets that feature hand-dipped, sports-themed strawberries and cookies. Or, you can send a friend one of our freshly baked chocolate, vanilla or red velvet cakes for a festive celebration!
