Gift Delivery

Gift and Gift Basket Delivery

At the Basketry, we pride ourselves on not only being able to give you exactly the gift basket or box that you have envisioned but we will also deliver it in a very timely manner. We understand that it isn’t just about that perfect gift, it also has to arrive when and where you want it to arrive. Some of the items in our gift baskets are fragile, and you can be confident that the gift will be packed so that all the items included are secure and protected. We handle your gift the way we would want our own to be handled – like they are the most precious things in the world – and for you and the recipient, they are. 

Local gift basket delivery

Once we have worked together to curate your perfect gift we will discuss with you where and when you want your gift basket delivered.  We provide hand gift delivery within our local delivery area. This includes 

  • The River Parishes

    • St John Parish
    • St James Parish 
    • St John the Baptist Parish
  • Jefferson Parish
  • Orleans Parish
  • New Orleans Central Business District 
  • St Bernard Parish

We offer gift basket delivery to both businesses and private residences. We can bring the gift of your choice to any hotels or bed and breakfasts that are within the local delivery area. The charge for this hand delivery is minimal depending on the distance from our store.  We can even put the basket in hotel rooms prior to the guest’s arrival with the cooperation of the hotels. Since we are hand delivering, we can also deliver right to a restaurant for a special celebration and we will coordinate the perfect delivery time with you. We are happy to work with you and will do our best to accommodate your schedule, we don’t expect you to fit into ours. 

Outside the local area 

We realize that not all of the people on your gift list live in the local area. We have more than 25 years of experience in making sure that every basket, box or gift that we pack will get to its destination, wherever that may be – as you envisioned it and when you want it there. We use FedEx for shipping and we can ship things for you from coast to coast. Orders placed before noon CST will be shipped out that day, after that time they will go out the next business day. We trust FedEx to deliver in a timely manner but of course, it is not quite the same as The Basketry hand-delivering your gift. 

Gifts baskets delivery will take 3-5 days not counting the day the order is placed. If you need expedited shipping, please call us for a quote.  Fed Ex ground is the only shipping option online.  We provide our customers with the following options when you call: 

  • FedEx Ground
  • 3-Day Select
  • 2nd Day Air
  • Next Day Air
