New vs. Old Gift Basket Designs

There was a time, not too long ago that pretty much the only gift basket you could send contained either fruit (although fruit baskets can be beautiful, they are perishable) or a combination of crackers, cheeses and meats that looked as if they’d been around since God was a boy. 

A few years back, one of my friends lost a parent.  She received multiple fruit baskets.  The problem was, there was way too much fruit!  Knowing that her parent would be distraught at the waste, she took it upon herself to bring all of the baskets to the local mission.  (I didn’t know about it until after the fact, or I would have happily brought it for her).  The frustrating thing was, that during this time of grief, she had to worry about fruit going bad!  Now I know everyone who sent her a basket had good intentions, and the results were, I’m sure, not what they intended.  But none the less, those were the results.

When I started my business, one of my priorities was to build baskets that had fresh, shelf stable product that could be enjoyed over a longer period of time and to ensure the contents were things people couldn’t wait to eat!  In my opinion, baskets of the 21st century are much more appealing and often include chocolates, cookies, candies, nuts, snack mixes, etc.  Gourmet baskets consist of smoked salmon, lobster pate, high quality mustards, premium cheeses and seasonings.  By providing a nice combination of products, you can ensure there is something for everyone. 

By purchasing in smaller quantities and re-ordering product frequently, we can ensure freshness. Our maple products come straight from a sugar shack (maple syrup farm).  It is these little things that, we hope, set us apart.  We are not out just to make a buck, but to represent you with a chosen gift, when you are unable to be there yourself.  We do not take this responsiblity lightly and are proud to team with you for your gift giving occasions.
