I agree, vagriller! Recently my friend ordered a banana split ice-cream cake, and the market was all out. But, I'll bet the ice cream chains will have quite a selection.
Re gift baskets, another thought is, make it Italian. An easy basket to put together, dried pasta (tri-color, or whatever strikes your fancy), san marzanos, couple of heads of garlic, good olive oil, olives, mozzarella, and deliver it to my house.
If you have a favorite pasta recipe using the ingredients, include a recipe card as well. Gift baskets are so much fun putting together, and you can make a foodie basket depending on the recipient's tastes... i.e. a breakfast basket - pancake mix, bacon, berries, syrups, tea assortments. The possibilities are endless.
