One of the first things you may think of when you hear the destination of Florida might be the sweet experience of biting into a juicy slice of orange. This southeastern state offers the layout of a spacious peninsula surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. With an inviting warm, subtropical climate, Florida is a tourist haven for those who crave for sandy beach land and relaxing weather. The capital of Florida is Tallahassee, yet the largest city is actually Jacksonville (home of the Jaguars football team). By far, one of the most sought-out locations within the state is Miami, which serves as the ever-pounding cultural pulse of Florida.

While the state is situated close to Georgia and Alabama, it is also within close proximity to the clear-blue waters of the Caribbean, namely the Bahamas and Cuba. It is probably from these locations that such an influence in cigar smoking and sales gave way to increased popularity. Gift baskets perfect for a newly married groom or recent daddy may contain a few premium cigars for celebration's sake. Accessories to include in this type of basket include lighters, cutters, humidors, and decorative ashtrays. Want to please non-smokers? Mock cigars made from gum are always a reasonable standby.

Alligators are also a popular association that often comes with a visit to Florida. After a tourist has avoided contact with one of these extremely intimidating beasts, they may feel compelled to bring a less threatening version home with them. Gift baskets capturing the spirit of Florida may include a stuffed gator, which also satisfies University of Florida students looking for a nice gift to give their parents and friends back home.

Florida is known as the “Sunshine State, " for the amount of sunny days making a guest appearance throughout the year, but did you know Central Florida is known as the lightning capital in the U. S? This location actually experiences the highest amount of lightning strikes than any other destination in the country. To capitalize on the more favorable weather occurrences throughout the state, A Day at the Beach gift basket may include sunscreen, sunglasses, beach towel, suntan lotion, and visor. Including a bucket, shovel, and other sand-related toys makes this same gift basket idea a fun item for children, which will keep the kiddies distracted when visiting the seaside of Florida, such as South Beach.

Orlando is a popular destination that many tourists and locals enjoy visiting throughout the year. This is where you will gain access to Walt Disney World Resort, Sea World, and Universal Orlando Resort. To prepare for consumers looking for an Orlando-themed gift basket, you may create a blue explosion of color to celebrate the marine scene at SeaWorld, which could include a stuffed animal whale accompanied by trinkets with a seashell theme, such as stationary, chocolate, or jewelry.
