Sometimes you just don’t know what to get the person who has everything. But with gift baskets and parcels, you can select the perfect contents to complement the individuality of the recipient. Does your best friend love movies? Why not send her a gift basket with movie gift certificates, popcorn, and her favorite chocolates or cookies? Do your in-laws love wine for their anniversary? A wine and cheese basket may be just the thing to make their day.
For any occasion, gift baskets and parcels can show a range of emotions for many occasions, from get well and thank you to sympathy and birthday. They can contain food, such as gourmet fruit, or non perishable items. Send a basket during the holidays when you can’t be with the person you’re sending it to you as a reminder of your friendship. Or deliver one to mom on Mother’s Day to say you love her.
You have a few options when sending a gift basket or parcel. You can order one pre-made, or you can buy a basket and some cellophane and put one together yourself. Pre-made baskets are the easiest and most convenient, plus they take the guess work out of creating and delivering a present. You can buy these at a florist or gourmet wine and cheese shop.
If you choose to make your own gift basket, you can head to any gift shop and purchase the necessary supplies to come up with a theme. Edible treats are always welcome, such as a coffee and muffin basket. Or, fill a basket with a couple’s registered items for their wedding day. A bachelor’s basket may include a variety of cigars. And you can’t go wrong on Valentine’s Day with an assortment of chocolate and fruit, or perhaps a flower arrangement.
