Why Sympathy Gift Baskets Include More Than Fruit

by Shirley George Frazier on March 25, 2015

Gift Basket Business. Copyright Shirley George Frazier. All rights reserved.There are many items to consider adding to a gift basket that bring joy and comfort during the loss of a loved one.

Fruit is appropriate, but when that’s eaten, what’s left aside from the container? The answer depends on the bereaved person’s:

  • Gender
  • Preferences
  • Needs to be satisfied at this time

Whomever is ordering the gift basket will provide you with insights about the person. It’s up to you to ask the right questions, which I review with you in the online gift basket class so you’re never at a loss to create this specialized gift basket.

The response from the buyer will ensure that you’ve chosen items that are just right for this sorrowful occasion.

Which products do you find to be most appropriate to include during bereavement?

How Will You Pamper Women with Mother’s Day Gift Baskets?

by Shirley George Frazier on March 18, 2015

Gift Basket Business. Copyright Shirley George Frazier. All rights reserved.Mother’s Day is the one occasion that reminds each woman to set aside time for herself.

A gift basket filled with pampering supplies will put a smile on her face and make doing something special just for her a habitual act every day after May 10.

This is not only true about your family’s moms, wives, aunts, sisters, and grandmothers.

Your customers have lots of ladies in their lives as well. It’s your goal to ensure that each of them, or at least as many of them as possible, receive customized gift baskets created by you.

Think head to toe when researching what to include.

  • Salts, scrubs, and soaps
  • Creams and lotions
  • Manicuring tools
  • Foot powders and sprays
  • Loofahs, stones, and brushes
  • Bath pillows
  • Stationary or floating candles

These items aren’t just for Mother’s Day. There are lots of other events for giving spa gift baskets, including as birthday and apology gifts.

You’ll find more Mother’s Day gift basket ideas in The Gift Basket Design Book. While supplies last, I’m also mailing a complimentary copy of the book, Marketing Strategies for the Home-Based Business, with each order, and that saves you $18.95.

Which gift basket is the most popular one you make for Mother’s Day?
