Best Gift Baskets

Whether the occasion is a new baby, a hospital stay, Christmas, Mother's Day, or one of countless other events, finding the right gift can be a challenge. The "same old, same old" gift cards are just that - old and often overused. However - Gift Baskets are a fresh idea that can add surprise and thoughtfulness to your gift giving efforts.

The choices of gift baskets can be overwhelming. You can gift a basket of cheese and wine, bath products, newborn toys, chocolate, fruit, and more. Themed gift baskets also exist for just about anything you can think of: golf, newborns, sports fans, wedding, women, men, teens, Halloween, Easter, Christmas, and so on.

Continued from above

However, not all gift basket companies are the same. While an abundance of internet gift basket companies exist today, only a handful go above and beyond to provide the best quality product at the best price on time and as expected.

Before shopping for gift baskets online you should consider several factors first:

  • Cost.  Compared to other gift baskets, how to the prices at one store compare to others based on the level of quality they provide?
  • Variety.  Which gift basket companies provide the best variety and selection to meet all your gift giving needs?
  • Return Policy.  If the gift basket shows up late, is incorrect, or simply not what you thought you would be getting for your money, will the company work with you and is a refund an option?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best gift baskets available today. We hope this information helps you find the right gift basket to meet your needs!

Why Are Gift Baskets So Popular?

The giving of gift baskets can be traced to ancient Greece. In 19th-century England, gift hampers were routinely delivered by hand to denizens of the country by visitors from London. These English offerings were meant to denote a degree of sophistication on the part of the giver, offering as they did products and wares country dwellers were hard pressed to find. They might even have included novelties and delicacies from the reaches of the British Empire.

Today, gift baskets are enjoying a healthy resurgence stateside. Why are gift baskets so popular? Their variety, versatility, and visual appeal render them a welcome offering to friends, family and acquaintances on most any occasion.

Variety and Number
Since a gift offering is nearly always appreciated, as an offering of multiple gifts -- neatly packaged in a single container ľ it is a can't-lose proposition. Offering more than one gift at a time can result in a sharing of the gift with friends of the recipient -- a move that cannot fail to boost your reputation. This strategy can be very effective with gifts of food, flowers, and even non-food themed gifts. A small business owner's sharing an office gift basket is de rigueur, almost cliche.

But think of how the baby goods gift basket you offer to a friend might be shared with other new moms. A themed gift basket to a knitting or crafting hobbyist, for example, might be shared with an entire crafting circle. Similarly, a bowling-themed basket might end up benefiting an entire league team. Of course, the more thought you put into the content of the basket, the more suitable the design and conception, the better.

Adaptability
In an age where business and personal friendships are formed via various types of media -- where your best friend forever might be an Internet acquaintance you have never met -- gift baskets make an ideal choice. For one thing, they can be as personal or as impersonal as you like. For a new business client, a basket of wines that are generally judged to be of good quality is perfectly suitable. For your spouse or significant other, a basket filled with items that suit her tastes - right down to brand, flavor and color -- strikes just the right note of intimacy, indicating a high degree of interest and attachment on your part. Indeed, gift baskets come in such variety and are formulated with such creativity that they can make ideal gifts for everyone from newborns to centegenarians, from new neighbors to the dearest of friends.

Visual Appeal
Even the English gift hampers of yore were generally decorative standouts. Gift basket packaging has only gained in visual elegance since then. Many purveyors continue to offer basket-like containers adorned with colorful shrink wrap. But more originally designed offerings are truly on the rise. For example, some specialty retailers package gifts in reusable containers -- perfectly in line with the eco-consciousness of the moment. Other companies have been known to employ containers of stoneware or earthenware for a rustic feel. Glassware and clear polycarbonate material offer the recipient an easy view of what's inside. Decorative materials may include anything from burlap and jute to satin, silk, and crystal.

Gift baskets are projected to grow in popularity through the next decade. Whether you are shopping for intimate friend or brand new acquaintance, there's sure to be a selection that is perfectly appropriate.
