But what sets us apart from the other fruit and flower delivery companies out there?
1) They Come Directly From Us
What you see advertised on our website is exactly what you or the recipient gets. We don't outsource orders to a local florist or fruit wholesaler, but assemble each basket at a central location with great care and attention. We always include what is listed in the contents and if there is a change for some reason, such as an item being out of stock, then we will let you know.
2) Not Just Fruit
You can simply have a basket full of lovely fresh fruit OR we have combine the fruit with any numbers of items such as sweet foods, savoury foods, pamper items, magazines, puzzles or cuddly bears.
3) Daily Deliveries Of Fresh Produce
We have fruit & flower deliveries on a daily basis, but they still have to pass our vigorous checks before making it into any of our gift baskets. Fruit is checked for blemishes or bruises and polished clean and Selina herself hand picks all the plants to ensure they are in top condition. We opt to send the flowering plant out in bud so that the recipient can enjoy it coming into bloom.
4) We Know What Works
Having created fruit baskets for over 10 years we know which kinds of fruit work well in a gift basket that is going to be in transit through the delivery network. Softer fruits such as banana's and strawberries just don't travel well and so we choose not to include these in our range. We want the recipients to be delighted with their fruit gift basket upon receiving it. Instead we come up with more unusual, exotic alternatives that will still travel well & look and taste the part.
5) We Follow Up The Delivery
We upgrade all fruit and flower orders to the next day delivery service to ensure their speedy arrival. We also track all our dispatches on a daily basis to ensure they were successfully delivered. Any showing as "recipient not home" or "recipient moved" are speedily followed up and rescheduled to minimise any additional transit time.
We hope this gives you an insight into the whole creation and delivery process involved in creating your fruit and flower gifts, and please take a moment to watch our fruit basket video for even further insight.
