While you can order a gift basket for any occasion, most people usually place orders during holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, weddings, baby showers, and other special days that occur in their lives. Even though most orders can be delivered within five days after placing the order, you should always ask about delivery times so you can tell the person receiving the basket when to be home to accept it. Planning ahead by ordering your basket at least a week in advance is a good idea, especially when you need it to arrive on time.
PLANNING FOR THE HOLIDAYS
You should expect gift basket orders to increase during the holiday season. If you want to send gift baskets as gifts, or you want to have them delivered for a holiday party, you need to plan in advance.
Looking at different gift baskets beforehand will make it easier to when placing your order. If you want to customize an order, having an idea of which items you want to add will make placing your order much easier as well.
During the holiday season, place an order at least a week in advance. This way, you can be sure that it will arrive at the right time. Since orders are sent out daily, your order should be delivered without any problems.
LAST MINUTE GIFTS
Even though most events are planned, the birth of a baby or the announcement that one is one the way, selling or buying a home, and other events that happen in your friendÕs or familyÕs lives may be unexpected.
Sending a gift basket is a wonderful last minute gift that will not require you to visit a store, choose a gift, wrap it and ship it. You can place an order and your basket will be sent a few days later. Because these events are not planned, those receiving your gift will be very pleased and happy that you thought of them.
Sending a gift basket for no special reason is perhaps the best reason to send one. You do not have to plan in advance, it will be a complete surprise to the person receiving it, and you donÕt have to be too concerned about when it will arrive.
