How to Choose the Perfect Gift Basket

Gift baskets are the perfect way to express your sentiments. They’re charming, versatile and appropriate for every kind of occasion from birthdays to thank you and marking special days like Easter. 

But with the wide range of gift baskets available from popular online stores such as Gift Barn, choosing the right one can be quite overwhelming. Here are a few tips to help you choose the perfect gift basket. 

Consider your recipient 

The best thing about a gift basket is that you can personalise it according to the preferences and personality of the person you're sending it to. So to choose the perfect gift basket, naturally you need to take some time to think about the recipient and choose a basket that reflects his or her tastes. Are they obsessed with coffee for example? Gift Barn have the perfect hamper for caffeine fiends!

Set a Budget

Gift baskets can range vastly in price. Decide how much you want to spend and you can browse baskets within a specified price range. Gift Barn is known for providing premium baskets at very reasonable prices.

Select an Occasion or Theme

The Gift Barn website and online catalogue makes it easy to shop for a specific event, or theme. They stock a huge range of gift baskets made especially for events from Easter to Christmas and all the birthdays and house warmings that happen in between! And because you can browse at your convenience, you can relax, take your time and make sure you choose the perfect gift basket. 

Shop with a Reputable Retailer

As with all online shopping, it’s important to make sure any website you are considering purchasing from is legitimate before making a payment. Gift Barn has been established since 1995, bringing trustworthy, hassle free gift basket shopping to NZ.

My daughter has lived in New Zealand for over 10 years. We always send her and her family gifts for every occasion which costs and American arm and leg. I've looked many times to find a NZ Company I could order from to send local and the other day I found this company. I ordered one day and it was delivered the next. My daughter loved it. She said that the different products in the basket were the best quality and local products. I am so happy to have found this website. Thank you so much,

I was delighted with the gift basket I ordered for mum on her birthday. She was thrilled with the way it was presented and especially pleased with the gift card which used a lovely font and seemed more personal. They also delivered on time. Thank you so much, I will definitely be ordering from you again.
