Why gift baskets are the best last minute present

We’ve all been there before. We’ve left a birthday, or worse, an anniversary present to the 11th hour and have had to choose something in a panic, sometimes leading to some poorly thought out gifts. We all live busy lives and it doesn’t have to be that way even if you are in rush, so we’re going to tell you why gift baskets could be the perfect last minute surprise for your loved one.

Everything you need in one easy package

Getting a gift basket delivery for someone is a really simple way to add a bit of flair to their special day. First of all, they just look good, arriving beautifully wrapped at their door. You also have a bit more time to think about the choice of gift as there’s (fortunately) no trip to the shops involved here. You don’t have to fight your way through crowds of other disgruntled shoppers only to find the gift you had in mind has sold out. There’s no queuing in line for hours or running to make it to the shops before they close. All the delivery work is taken care of for you. If you’re also bad at gift wrapping then this is definitely the best last minute gift for your special someone.

There’s so much choice

Every gift basket is a little different. They come in all shapes and sizes and full of different treats. Obviously whatever you’re celebrating is important to take into consideration as you want to set the right tone. Gift baskets can have a bit of everything inside. Champagne, perfume, jewelry or perhaps a cuddly toy. If you know someone who is a lover of food there are gourmet baskets or perhaps chocolate baskets (after all chocolate is pretty popular at any time). You can really tailor your surprise to fit your loved one’s tastes.

It’s luxurious

Let’s be honest. Everyone feels a bit posh when they receive a gift basket and that’s because there’s an air of luxury and exclusivity that comes with receiving one. We all like to treat the ones we love to a little opulence on their birthday or for an anniversary and if you are in the position where you have left buying a present to the last moment then this is a quick and easy solution to impress your special someone. Or to buy yourself some time while you sort out something even more lavish. As an extra bonus, the delivery itself adds a certain element of flair too as receiving a distinctive package to your door just comes across as fancy.

It’s exciting

You don’t receive presents every day so it’s worth doing something to make the giving of a gift more memorable than usual. Imagine receiving a gift basket yourself. You’d first wonder what’s inside it and who sent it. That air of mystery adds a little extra excitement to what is probably already an exciting time if someone is celebrating.

So there you have it. A gift basket when you’re organising a last minute gift is probably one the best ways to seamlessly send a present to someone you love while still maintaining the thought and presentation that you know your loved ones deserve. With so many different examples to choose from you’re sure to find something that will make the perfect surprise when they gratefully unwrap their gift.

Sending a gift basket around the world is easier today than ever before and with our catalogue of gift baskets, we’re sure there’s something that you and your lucky recipient will adore. Go on! Treat them to something special.
