Frequently Asked Questions About Building Your Own Gift Basket

How Fast Can You Deliver My Order?

We know that fast delivery is important when sending out gifts, so we make it easy by shipping all our gifts same day. When you place an order before 3 PM (MT) M-F, your baskets will ship out the same day, regardless of personalization or customization on the items in your order. If you want your gift to be delivered faster, select a faster shipping method in your cart at checkout.

How Many Items Should Be Included in a Gift Basket?

Our general recommendation is to include a minimum of 3-4 items in your box. This will help to avoid the gift box looking empty and ensure it will fill the container that you have chosen. We have a maximum amount of 20 items in your gift to ensure that it will fit in the baskets.

What Are Some Gift Basket Ideas?

Sometimes the easiest way to build your gift box is to pick a theme and choose your items based on that theme or occasion. There are also some best-selling items that fit well in most gifts regardless of the theme of the box. These include;

  • Personalized Tumblers/ Barware
  • Sweet Treats and Snacks
  • Soothing Spa Lotion and Oils
  • Scented Candles
  • Bath Bombs and Scented Bath Salts
  • Tea and Coffee Samplers

What Can I Use Instead of a Basket for a Gift Basket?

One benefit of working with a company that builds and designs gifts all day is that there are plenty of different packaging items that you can choose from. While we do have beautiful gift baskets to choose from, some of our most popular packaging choices also include our personalized wooden crates, round hat boxes, and even a seagrass keepsake hamper.

What Items Should I Avoid in My Custom Gift Basket?

Ultimately, you know your recipient best. The perfect gift for them may not be the same perfect gift you would build for a coworker.

Some items that we generally tend to request considering when you send your gift are items that could melt in extreme heat, such as chocolate. We also encourage you to think about your recipient's habits. Do they drink coffee, cocktails, tea, or wine? This may be something to consider when choosing items to include in your order.

If it is your first time building a gift for them, it may be best to play it safe and choose best-selling gifts in your price range that are tried and true. Whether you are shopping around for a wine lover's gift box or want to add some personalization to a spa gift basket, we are sure that this present will be loved and well received.
