You're thinking of going the extra mile to make your gift more meaningful, by presenting it as part of a gift basket. That's a great idea, because the added touch of flowers shows your thoughtfulness in curating the ideal gift, and will go a long way in conveying your sincerity. Great job for choosing to do this, and we're here to help you make this a decision you won't regret.
Gift hampers are generally also great as gifts due to their customizability and versatility - you're able to create a beautiful arrangement with practical items that your recipient can use or consume. Having been in Singapore's online florist scene for so long, we do understand that with the possibilities available, it can be daunting to start picking out the perfect hamper. We've thus prepared a short guide to get you on your way!
As a rule of thumb, if the thought of giving a hamper crossed your mind, then chances are it is an appropriate occasion for one. Gift hampers can be easily made appropriate since they can be customized to the recipient's preferences.
The following are some more common occasions for a hamper, but the list is definitely not finite!
A few factors to consider:
As with all gifts, always think of what your recipient would like. Are they a wine person, chocolate person, tea person? If you're very clear about what he/she will like, you can choose from the extensive range of pre-pack and ready designed gift baskets on this page. This would be the easist and fastest way to send out your gift basket.
Alternatively, if time if not of essence, you can't find something you want, you can also completely customize the gift basket from the flowers to the gifts - just make sure to drop us a call or an email beforehand so that we can check the availability of the items you want!
Another way to approach this is to look through the catalogue, and base off your ideas from there. Tweak the items of any basket to create the best customized hamper you possibly can - same thing, do drop us a call or an email first to check out the availability!
The best time for a gift delivery is honestly any time when someone is available to receive the basket.
If you're delivering it to a corporate event, we would recommend doing so at the start of the event, so that it can simultaneously serve as part of the display. (If this is a last minute gift, fret not, we do same day gift delivery too!)
Same principle as always - always think, what does the person like? However, we understand that sometimes you're giving the gift basket to someone you're not that close to. In that case, here are some more common 'guy gifts' to consider:
Woah okay we understand this can be a tough one! Here's what we have curated for situations like these:
Birthdays are all about celebrating that person, so choose items that your recipient will like and use/consume! That aside, the type of items you include is also rather dependent on your relationship with the recipient.
We commonly have customers choosing the following:
Chocolates are a safe bet for both intentions.
Other more unique but still appropriate setups can include soft toys, TWG tea, or a basket full of snacks to sweeten up the person's mood (and increases the chances of that apology being accepted).
Ultimately, it's the sincerity that counts - by giving a hamper, you've already taken a step in the right direction, and we're sure the other party will be able to sense your earnestness.
