Win Gift Trugs from Serenata Hampers (Closed)

Some people are so difficult to shop for, aren’t they? Gift hampers (and baskets) are a great option when you want to make an impression but don’t know what to choose. Food and drinks selections also have the advantage of being consumable, which is a vastly under-appreciated attribute by those of us prone to clutter.
