Gift baskets make a wonderful gift for a wide variety of occasions. One occasion in particular that you may not immediately think of is for sending your condolences. The first thing that springs to mind during such sad times is to pass on your thoughts and sympathies with a card & of course flowers.
However a sympathy gift basket not only lets a person know you are thinking of them and their family, it is also a practical present during a busy time. They are likely to be busy with visitors and so may not be thinking of cooking for themselves or even have time for preparing meals.
At BasketsGalore our bereavement gift baskets contain easy to eat items such as fresh fruit, cheese & biscuits and smoked salmon, paté and ham for making a quick bite to eat or snacking on. There are also items included that are great for sharing with visitors such as tea, coffee, cake and shortbread biscuits.
With each condolence gift you also receive a 'With Sympathy' gift card for your personalised message.
We have just added a selection of new sympathy gift hampers for 2014. I've included a selection of images below so you can see how how attractive, yet practical they are. They really are a thoughtful gift, that will stand out and be appreciated far more than flowers.
