Several years ago I received two gift baskets purchased through gift basket suppliers that are household names.
The first contained one layer of half-frozen fruit in a cheap 14" deep wicker basket - the rest of the basket was filled with styrofoam.
The other contained a few pieces of candy and a huge amount of artfully-shredded paper filler in a worthless (but shiny!) tin box.
At the end of the day, I didn't feel special, I felt embarrassed for the senders.
They had obviously looked at a gorgeous picture of a basket and sent it off to me, never realizing that the impression that would be given by that basket was not “how special” but rather "how cheap.”
Of course, I didn't take it out on my friends. I decided to do something much better - to start a company that would make it so that nobody would ever again have to be embarrassed by the gifts they send.
Thus GiftBasketsDeluxe.com, and our sister company Corporate-Gift-Baskets.com were born.
Our mission is to provide distinctive, exclusive gift baskets that will impress your friends, family and business associates and cause them to remember you fondly for years.
Every one of our baskets is based on an item of furniture, an art piece, or a decorating accessory that the recipient will want to proudly display in their home or office for years to come...
And to think about you, the sender, every time they see that item.
Plus we go one step further... every one of our gift baskets is lovingly hand-packed right here in Racine Wisconsin (not in some sweatshop in China like many of our competitors) and fully loaded with an assortment of gourmet goodies, imported chocolates, quality candies, and specialty coffees that are guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of the recipients.
Then each basket is adorned with a season-appropriate fabric ribbon, and securely packed into a shipping container to ensure that it arrives safely.
Finally, we add a hand-written note, containing the message you have written and rush it out to the home or office you specify.
In other words, we choose, create, pack, and ship your gift just like you would if you had the time and resources to do it yourself.
Why? Because we know that every gift you give is an extension of you, a message of love and caring.
So it has to be done right, every single time.
And we take that responsibility very seriously.
Of course, part of that responsibility means quick turn around; every order we receive by noon Eastern time ships that same day. Plus we offer you the option to ship overnight, second-day, or third-day delivery if you need to get it there quickly.
It also means that I personally and fully guarantee every single product we ship. If you are ever unhappy with any product you have purchased, just let me know, and we'll instantly make it right or refund your money.
So if you need just one special gift for a precious someone, or thousands delivered to all of your clients, you've come to the right place. I, and my staff will do everything possible to help make this a gift that they will remember you by for years!
I personally guarantee it!
P. S. Don't just give yet another gift basket, full of cheap, stale goodies and filler packed in a basket they'll just throw away at the end of the day - give a heirloom-quality gift like one of the gift baskets shown on this site!
P. P. S. If you have any questions, or just want to make sure that there really is someone on the other end of the line, please feel free to call me directly. My personal direct line is 262-639-2270. I look forward to helping you your gift-giving process!
