Here at Baskets Galore one of the most popular requests we receive is for birthday gift baskets. I suppose this is because everybody has a birthday! You can of course choose one of our pre-designed birthday gift baskets and hampers or why not build your own with a little help from us?
A popular choice when creating your own basket is to include cheese and fresh meats. Our cheese selection gift pack, smoked salmon and cured hams have been flying off the shelves recently as these are so fresh & that little bit different.
I find it very interesting to see what food items our customers individually select to send to their friends and loved ones to celebrate their big day. I think every year it becomes harder to get loved ones a special gift as you want to treat them to something new. There is no doubt that a lot of thought and time goes into each gift basket. We’ve found that being able to create your own basket is particularly popular with close family members as they obviously know the recipient’s food preferences very well.
If I was to build a basket for my little boy the first item I would choose would be the train set. I have had so much fun myself with that item when we trialled it at BasketsGalore. It’s like lightning going around the little track and is very cool as it is able to pull its carriages around with it. I think this is something that my little boy would love. I would also add the chocolate lollipops as they are delicious & I think I would add an extra one for myself!!
For those customers wishing to send a birthday gift to a work colleague or friend that they perhaps don’t know quite as well, we have a massive range of ready-made hampers that have been carefully designed around a central theme or focus such as chocolate, magazines, games & puzzles, organic food, radio controlled toys etc…
Of course we’ll also be watching closely, and getting content tips from those of you that create your own gift baskets!
