Wine snacks are an excellent filler for a wine gift basket! Look for anything that would be good for a charcuterie board: fancy crackers, cornichons (little pickles), tapenade, cheese straws, nuts, and chocolates. Basically, anything snack-y and non-perishable is a good find to add to the gift basket.
Best places to shop for snacks for wine night: World Market, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Lowes Foods, Publix, and The Fresh Market.
