How we Package and Ship Gift Baskets
How Will My Gift Basket Arrive?
We take the utmost care in packaging and shipping to making sure that your hand crafted gift basket arrives looking as good as it did when we made it.
After your basket gets it's final decorative enhancements it is carefully shrink wrapped to protect and to further secure the items inside. After shrink wrapping, most baskets get slid into a decorative basket bag, tied at the top and finished with a hand made decorative bow.
Then it's off to packaging and shipping. There, your personal greeting is hand written on a gift card appropriate for the occasion. After your personal gift message is attached to the bow, your gift basket gets carefully wrapped in bubble wrap to cushion it against potential shipping mishaps. Then, it's into a paper packed shipping container and additional packing paper is added to ensure that your gourmet gift basket is secure inside of it's shipping container before it gets taped up.
Next, your securely packaged gift gets it's label printed and applied before our daily package pick-up. Later on that evening, you will receive tracking information via the email address you provided when your order was placed.
When your gift basket is delivered to your recipient, all they need to do is open the carton, remove the gift basket and gently pull off the protective bubble wrap, read the gift card and enjoy.
Multiple Baskets To One Location
Occasionally we are asked to ship multiple gift baskets to the same location (bulk gift basket shipping). In cases where we can safely package more than one gift per shipping carton we will take advantage of the shipping savings and pass it along to our customers if possible. We take the same care with bulk gift basket shipments as we do with all individual shipments: every basket is individually wrapped for proper protection and then bulk packed. Most often we can only get two baskets per carton.
If you have any questions about packaging or shipping please call and ask to speak to someone in our shipping department - we are here to help.
