A gift basket is a common and easy gift to give to a client, host, or in-laws, but all too often, they’re filled with uninspiring, bland items.

A great gift basket includes a large quantity of high-quality items that have been curated around your giftee’s interests and tastes. Whether you’re planning to gift food, coffee, or seasoning-filled baskets, you’ll want to make sure they’ll use every item. We’ve gathered 24 unique gift baskets, including a salami bouquet, a bucket of candy, and even ice cream. Many of our picks contain perishable items, which means they ship quickly.

However, we recommend checking the estimated delivery date closely before purchasing to ensure they’ll arrive in time for your purposes. Check out our other gift guides here if you’re looking for more ideas.

For the person who can’t get enough of Disneyland

For the friend who cooks with the seasons

my shanghai betty liu best cookbooks

“My Shanghai” by Betty Liu, $31.79, available at Amazon

This debut cookbook from Betty Liu (who somehow found the time to author it amid her general surgery residency) is an homage to seasonal cooking and her family’s roots in the Chinese regions of Shanghai, Jiangsu, and Zhejiang. I picked up this cookbook up in my local bookstore and couldn’t put it down (and ended up bringing it home with me). The chapters are organized by season and explain the influence the weather, holidays, and traditions have on the recipes prepared throughout the year. I love the stories Liu relates about the inspirations behind her recipes, like climbing a mountain to eat Double-Mushroom Noodle Soup at a temple, foraging spring bamboo shoots for Oil-Braised Spring Bamboo, and the bowls of breakfast noodles her father would make her before test days. I’ve already made the Shanghai Stir-Fried Rice Cakes four or five times, and I can’t wait to dive into more of the recipes as the seasons progress. 

For the cook who wants to master their grill

rodney scott best cookbooks

“Rodney Scott’s World of Barbecue” by Rodney Scott and Lolis Eric Elie, $18.14, available at Amazon

My best friend (and fellow cookbook collector) recently texted me raving about this cookbook and the genius of Rodney Scott’s Loaded Pork Skin “Nachos,” Pit-Smoked Turkey, and whole-hog approach to Carolina barbecue. Scott’s positivity and passion shine throughout the book, and you’ll learn lots about southern foodways and the history of Carolina barbecue along the way.  

For the parent planning their next trip

dishoom best cookbook

“Dishoom” by Shamil Thakrar, $17.29, available at Amazon

Whether it’s London or Bombay that is your giftee’s next destination, “Dishoom” is required reading before they jet off. The popular Dishoom restaurants in London are inspired by the Irani cafes of Bombay and serve “tipples,” snacks, and mains like Mango Kulfi, Pav Bhaji, and Roomali Roti. In “Dishoom,” you’ll learn to cook the restaurant’s entire menu, and be taken on a tour of Bombay’s cafes (complete with a map) along the way. 

For the coworker who has *opinions* on babka

jew-ish best cookbook

“Jew-ish” by Jake Cohen, $15.79, available at Amazon

At Insider Reviews we have lots of opinions, especially about food, and a recent debate centered around the merits of cinnamon versus chocolate fillings for babka. I like Jake Cohen’s philosophy in “Jew-ish,” which is that babka is delicious no matter what you fill it with. “Jew-ish” is a thoughtful collection of recipes centered around Cohen’s Ashkenazi heritage, his own self-discovery in the kitchen, and the Persian-Iraqi traditions of his husband. Cohen celebrates the origins of Jewish dishes, while also putting his own twist on the classics. You’ll see this in action in his recipes for Cacio e Pepe Rugelach, Black and White Chocolate Chip Cookies, and yes, You Can Go Your Own Way: Babka Edition.

For the family member intimidated by their new Instant Pot

instant pot best cookbook

The book features more than 750 photos detailing step-by-step how to make the 100+ recipes, and makes a great gift for anyone who is curious about Instant Pots but hasn’t taken the plunge yet.

For the history buff

Jubilee cookbook

“Jubilee” by Toni Tipton-Martin, $20.07, available at Amazon

Toni Tipton-Martin’s personal collection of African-American cookbooks spans more than 400 titles and her knowledge of American food history is on full display in “Jubilee.” Through recipes and stories, she relates the history of Black folks who shaped American cuisine into what it is today, from those who cooked under the confines of brutal enslavement to the chefs who ran White House kitchens. “Jubilee” is a masterful work of American history, as told through food.

For the person who loves pie but fears making it

pie academy best cookbook gifts

“Pie Academy” by Ken Haedrich, $18.17, available at Amazon

A compendium of 255 pie recipes, “Pie Academy” is likely the last pie cookbook you’ll ever need. It has nearly a dozen recipes for different types of pie crust, a troubleshooting section for when things don’t go as expected, and chapters organized by seasonality and filling type. It’s guaranteed to be a hit with the pie lover in your life, especially one who is interested in making pies but has always found them a bit daunting. 

For the home cook that also loves to read

black white grey best cookbook gifts

“Black, White, and The Grey” by Mashama Bailey and John O. Morisano, $15.69, available at Amazon

While not a cookbook, “Black, White, and The Grey,” tells the story of one of the most celebrated restaurants in America: The Grey in Savannah, Georgia. Mashama Bailey, who is Black, and John O. Morisano, who is white, relate the story of how they turned a dilapidated formerly segregated Greyhound bus station into an award-winning restaurant. The dual memoir touches on race, community, and friendship, with some delicious food anecdotes along the way.

For the friend who wants to master the essentials

my korea

“My Korea” by Hooni Kim, $22.94, at Amazon

Michelin-starred chef Hooni Kim’s debut cookbook is a crash course in the essentials of Korean cuisine. The book’s tagline is “traditional flavors, modern recipes,” and that is an accurate summation of what you can expect to find in this cookbook — from Dolsot Bibimbap to Budae Jjigae to Hanjan’s Spicy Rice Cakes. When I first laid my hands on this cookbook, I wanted to make (and eat) every single recipe. If you’re looking for some solid foundation recipes, “My Korea” delivers.

For the person with quarantine cooking fatigue

Indian ish

“Indian-ish” by Priya Krishna, $18.25, available at Amazon

In her debut cookbook, Priya Krishna (contributor to Bon Appetit, New York Times, and others) offers up beloved favorite recipes from her Indian-American family, including Tomato Rice with Crispy Cheddar, Malaysian Ramen, and what her dad calls Indian Gatorade (Shikanji). The recipes are largely vegetarian, creative, fun, comforting, and guaranteed to inspire anyone who feels stuck in a rut with their cooking in 2021. 

For the person who spent 2020 mastering sourdough

new world sourdough

“New World Sourdough” by Bryan Ford, $14.17, available at Amazon

This was the year of the sourdough starter, and few people are as well-versed in fermented breads as Bryan Ford, blogger and baker.

In this cookbook, the son of the family and CEO of the business Jason Wang divulges some of the recipes that made his family business famous, as well as other classic dishes from Xi’an in western China.

For the fan of the ‘Great British Baking Show’

Baking Kim Joy

“Baking with Kim-Joy” by Kim-Joy, $14.89, available at Amazon

Fans of GBBO will likely remember series nine runner-up Kim-Joy’s adorable and creative bakes, like her giant chocolate planet filled with “space turtles,” or her “Silke the vegetarian mermaid” pie.

James Beard Award-winning chef and food activist Bryant Terry offers 150 vegan recipes in his most recent cookbook.

You’ll find recipes for Pea Shoot and Peanut Salad, Grilled Spring Onions with Lemon-Thyme Oil, Cornmeal-Fried Oyster Mushroom Po’Boys, and more. A special hallmark of Terry’s books is that they often contain a playlist to listen to while you’re cooking, and “Vegetable Kingdom” is no different, featuring recommended tracks by Duke Ellington, Santana, Björk, and more.

The book is rich in recipes, from multiple variations of shakshuka and hummus, to verdant salads, and colorful dips.

For the pint-sized cook in your life

ATC kids book

“The Complete Cookbook for Young Chefs” by America’s Test Kitchen, $11.49, available at Amazon

I worked for America’s Test Kitchen (ATK) for seven years and was privy to the care its team puts into each and every one of its cookbooks. ATK’s series of cookbooks for kids is the epitome of that detail and care; every one of the recipes in this volume was tested by pro chefs and kid cooks. The recipes are specifically designed with kids in mind, outlining when to get an adult for help with handling hot ingredients or sharp tools. This is the book I wish was available to me when I was a child, and I’ve gifted it and the kid’s baking book to every kid I know. I love getting reports from their parents about a new recipe they cooked or discovered.

Each episode of the “Pasta Grannies” YouTube series is an escape to a different region of Italy, where local grannies (or nonne) teach the audience to prepare and cook a regional dish — from classics like Spaghetti alla Carbonara to a pasta shape from Sardinia only three women know how to make. This cookbook takes some of the most popular videos from the series and turns them into tangible recipes you can cook at home. Between watching the video and cooking from the book, you can transport yourself to a little corner of Italy without leaving your home.

My partner (left) and me (right) on our latest trip home to Florida – we both hunted down vintage Disney World shirts to wear to Magic Kingdom.

  • I’m a huge Disney fan, with a particular love for all things Mickey Mouse.
  • I scoured the internet for the best gifts you could give a Disney fan – besides theme park tickets.
  • From jewelry collabs to handmade art, any Disney or Mickey Mouse lover would swoon over these picks.
  • For more gift ideas, check out all Insider Reviews gift guides here.

In 2018, celebrations erupted all over the world as Mickey and Minnie Mouse turned 90. Collaborations were popping up left and right, with everyone from luxury watch brands to streetwear sneaker companies dropping Mickey- and Minnie-inspired styles for adults.

Over the past three years, this has been great and very expensive news for classic Disney fans like myself. I grew up near Disney World, so my love for Mickey runs deep – and after putting together this list, my pockets run shallow.

If you’re looking for a gift for a grownup who loves all things classic Disney but wants a more mature look, you’ve definitely come to the right place. I handpicked some of the best Mickey- and Minnie-themed gifts for adults, plus a few old-school Disney options I just couldn’t leave behind.

Here are 27 gifts for Disney fans, chosen by a Disney fan:

A makeup set covered in Bambi illustrations

ColourPop Bambi Lip & Eye Set; Disney gift for adults; makeup gift

Bambi Lip & Eye Set, available at ColourPop, $28

If they love an old classic like Bambi, they’ll appreciate this lip and eye set from ColourPop. The packaging is stunning, but the actual formulas are buttery, glossy, and shimmery. They can make a complete makeup look with the five-pan eyeshadow palette, soft yellow eyeliner, and sheer lip gloss in this set. It’s the perfect gift for them to refresh their makeup collection this summer. For more, you can check out all of ColourPop’s Disney offerings.

A stunning box of fresh roses

Roseshire Magic Hearts; Disney gift for adults; gift of flowers

Roseshire X Disney Magic Hearts, available at Roseshire, from $109

Fresh flowers can seem like a typical gift idea, but you can step up your game by gifting these beautiful roses. Packaging means everything, and Roseshire really goes the extra mile with this box. You can choose between two different color options and three quantities. Although this one has Mickey and Minnie on the box, Roseshire offers plenty of other Disney-themed packaging options.

A mold that makes Mickey Mouse-shaped ice

Williams Sonoma Mickey Mouse Ice Molds - Set of 2; Disney gift for adults; kitchen gift

Mickey Mouse Ice Mold – Set of 2, available at Williams Sonoma, $21.95

Ice doesn’t have to be shaped in squares, rectangles, and circles. They’ll have a blast making Mickey Mouse-shaped ice with the help of this ice mold. It’s the perfect addition to their bar at home and even better with summer on the rise. Other items in this exclusive, Disney-themed collection include a water bottle, a spatula, and more.

A dazzling, collectible powder compact

Estée Lauder x Disney Dreams Come True Compact by Monica Rich Kosann; Disney gift for adults

Estée Lauder x Disney Dreams Come True Compact by Monica Rich Kosann, available at Bergdorf Goodman, $150

For the one who has an eye for collector’s items, this limited-edition compact is a true gem. Luxury jewelry designer Monica Rich Kosann created the packaging for this bejewelled setting powder. They’ll also appreciate the fact that this product is refillable, so they can use it for years and years to come. 

A tie that has subtle hints of Disney

Cufflinks Disney Mickey Mouse Check Silk Tie; Disney gift for adults

Cufflinks Disney Mickey Mouse Check Silk Tie, available at Nordstrom, $58

To add a little touch of fun to their work wardrobe, gift them this silk tie with a checkered pattern and Mickey Mouse silhouettes. The shades of blue and gray keep this tie professional enough to blend into any office.

A personalized bracelet

BaubleBar Mickey bracelet

BaubleBar x Disney Mickey Initial Pisa Bracelet, available at BaubleBar, $10

A theme park inspired art print

Since it’s not the most opportune time for a park visit, these Disney theme park art prints are an aesthetically pleasing reminder of our favorite rides. A writer on the Insider Reviews team bought six prints to display in their Disney-themed guest room, earning the print a spot on our 12 best Etsy discoveries.

A Mickey-shaped mug

PB Mickey Ear Popcorn Mug

Disney Mickey Mouse Stoneware Lidded Mugs, available at Pottery Barn, $24.50 each 

There’s no better accompaniment to a Disney movie than this Mickey-shaped mug that’ll hold your movie snacks. If you’re gifting to a Disney enthusiast that’s equally fond of the kitchen, nothing would please a Mickey fan more. It’s a whimsical way to give something practical.

A cozy, nostalgic bathrobe

PB Mickey robe

Disney Mickey Mouse Cozy Robe, available at Pottery Barn, $89

Inspired by vintage illustrations of Mickey Mouse’s 1928 debut, this nostalgic bathrobe celebrates Disney magic. Pair it with its matching slippers or add a personal monogram.

A custom pair of Mickey ears

Etsy Jessie Toy Story Inspired Ears; Disney gift for adults; Mickey Mouse ears gift

Custom Mickey Ears, available at Etsy, $32.30

Mickey ears are an honorary accessory for a theme park visit. If the park’s assortment doesn’t quite get you, the handmade ears from this Etsy shop pay homage to both Mickey Mouse and favorite Disney characters like Jessie from “Toy Story.”

A Google Home Mini stand that’s perfect for a playroom

Disney gifts for men Google Home Mini Speaker

Google Home Mini Speaker Mount, $24.99

Give them a stand for their Google Home Mini that turns the speaker into a 3D version of Mickey’s head. They’ll love the bit of whimsy it affords an otherwise sterile-looking piece of tech.

A perfect pair of sparkly Minnie earrings in rose gold

Disney gifts for adults earrings

CRISLU Minnie Mouse Rose Gold Earrings, available at shopDisney, $75

Disney parks have embraced rose gold in both the signature Minnie ears you’ll see bobbing around and the jewelry it produces. These delicate rose gold earrings make a great jewelry gift that’s not too pricey.

A Disney+ subscription
