10 Creative Popcorn Gift Baskets for Any Occasion

PrintLooking for a versatile, flavorful snack that also makes a great gift? Gourmet popcorn is a best seller because it can easily fit with nearly any special occasion. That means there’s a wide variety of opportunities where you can market gourmet popcorn for gift baskets.

  1. Movie Night – Movie-based gift baskets are the perfect way to showcase a variety of popcorn flavors including buttered, caramel and cheese. Popcorn buckets make a decorative addition.
  2. Baby Shower – Just use the theme, “Ready to Pop!” Then fill the basket with either pink or blue colored popcorn. Accessorize with other baby items like pacifiers for a fun and unique, yet practical gift.
  3. Military Care Package – Popcorn is one of the snacks that can be easily shipped, making it ideal for care packages. Put together a patriotic thank you to our troops with red, white and blue colored popcorn.
  4. Off-to-College – Help students be prepared for long nights of studying and snacking. As an added fun touch, color the popcorn in the school’s colors. Include other dorm life essentials like post-it notes and caffeinated beverages.
  5. Beach Theme – For sun and fun, plan a tropical inspired beach basket! Combine sunglasses, beach towels, flip flops and decorative drink cups. Island flavors of popcorn can be banana and piña colada.
  6. Holiday Selections – Popcorn is festive and can be paired with any holiday celebration. For example, 4th of July fits for red cherry and blueberry. For a Halloween treat, try orange and black cherry. And you’ll fall in love with red cinnamon for Valentine’s Day.
  7. Dessert Flavors – Tempt the taste buds with some of the sweetest flavor recipes like lemon pound cake, birthday cake and churro. Imagine this as a raffle item for a fundraiser.
  8. Cheese Lovers – Create a cheese lover’s dream with a tantalizing combination of cheddar, white cheddar, buffalo blue cheese and nacho flavors. This would be a great addition for a tailgate party!
  9. Spice It Up – For those up to the challenge of the hottest, spiciest flavors, give them a selection that includes Buffalo breath, jalapeño and ghost pepper. You could make this a Father’s Day special.
  10. Chef’s Choice – Mix up an assortment of all your favorite flavors. This way customers can easily get a taste of the most popular items from your menu. Promote it as an ideal party hostess gift.
