Choosing the Right Gift Basket

Choosing the right gift basket can be a very daunting task. There are so many gift baskets to choose from, it can become very overwhelming. Let us try and simplify it for you.

First, you have to decide on a price range. Here at The Gift Basket Gallery, all our products in our categories are arranged by price, starting at the lowest. Don’t forget to factor in shipping costs that will be added. Beware of some offers of free shipping. We have noticed that sometimes the cost of the products is higher to compensate for offering free shipping.

Next is what kind of gift basket you are shopping for. Most sites break down their products into categories. Usually, categories consist of Specialty Gift Baskets. Specialty Gift Baskets are categories like Corporate, Gourmet, Chocolates and such. Then there Theme Gift Baskets. Theme Gift Baskets are gift baskets designed with a certain theme in mind such as Baby, Wedding, Thank You, etc. Then there is always the Holiday Gift Baskets. These include all Holidays such as Christmas and Easter and special days like Mothers Day and Fathers Day. Know the person that you are buying the gift basket because that will help you out a lot when it comes to picking out the right gift basket. If you know things such as their favorite color, fruit, chocolate or other things like that you will be able to choose the gift much easier.

Now, picking the right basket. Let’s say you are shopping for a Thank You gift. You can go directly to the Thank You category, find your price range, and be done. If you have some time to shop, you may want to go to the search box, put in your price range, and look at all the products a site has to offer at that price. Keep in mind all categories will be included. You will be seeing all holiday gifts in that price range too. You can also look at all the categories offered and narrow it down. Sometimes other categories offer a product that will be perfect too. Instead of the usual Thank You gift basket, a Fresh Fruit Gift Basket, Chocolate Gift Basket, Cookie Gift Basket or a Gift Basket With a Personalized Ribbon will suit your needs and you just gear your message towards the sentiment you wish to express.

We hope this has helped you out a little. Remember, no matter what gift you choose, the recipient is sure to be very happy with your selection and the thoughtful gesture.
