Early Buy Discount for Holiday Gifting

Let me be honest, your clients do NOT want a ham or a poorly presented basket of wine.  What you send to them and how it looks represents you and your brand.  I can make you ONE solid promise that will never go unbroken.  What you order at The Basketry will be perfect, delivered perfect and your client will love it.  I personally taste every item, hand pick every item and along with my team we create designs that will be remembered.  Oh I know some people may say they don’t care about presentation, but I have done this for too long to know that is NOT true.  Plus, you don’t pay extra for good looking stuff.

Take a look at some of our newest curated gifts just recently added to our website.  If you want to add your marketing items, we can do that for FREE.  Really!  Before I show you pictures, I need to give you the BEST part about ordering early.

EARLY BUY DISCOUNT

ORDER BY OCTOBER 15TH – 10% OFF

ORDER BY NOVEMBER 15TH – 5% OFF

To qualify, your order must be $1000 or more before tax.  The entire order must be given (gift card info, addresses etc) along with payment.  We will put a future ship date on your gifts, so they won’t be delivered before you tell us to.  This discount is for holiday gifts delivered between 11/25 – 12/24.  Excludes fruit & muffin gifts due to perishability.

We hope you enjoy seeing how hard we’ve worked these last few weeks to bring you HOLIDAY 2018 CURATED GIFTS AND GIFT BASKETS.  Our team is pretty incredible and I am so proud of how much they care about each and every gift.

Enjoy!

Perhaps our favorite part of what we do at The Basketry is putting together custom gifts. We don’t simply throw items into our boxes and tie a bow, we hand select each item to create a feeling, a story, or a theme. Our goal with each gift is to create a cohesive look that is as special as it is beautiful. We ensure that each product in our boxes is high-quality, and we do our best to buy from as many local vendors as we can.
While we have hundreds of beautiful gifts on our website, we know that there are times when you may need something custom. Simply give us a call with your delivery information and budget, a few details about your recipient, and we’ll do the rest. Our creative team puts together new gifts everyday, and we’re happy to text or email you pictures until you decide on the PERFECT combination.

Each of our gifts is put together by hand, packaged beautifully, and sealed with a label. Interested in taking your branding to the next level? Let us create a custom label or ribbon with your company logo – it will be the perfect finishing touch on your gifts.
Let us put your logo inside! Custom logo stickers to seal each box are the perfect finishing touch.

Each gift comes with a hand-written gift card. We know that gift giving is personal, and you want your recipients to know that you’ve put time and effort into their gift, so we take each detail seriously.

Behind the scenes photo shoot in New Orleans

They say if you are really good at something, don’t be afraid to scream it from the rooftop!  It was from a rooftop bar off St. Charles Avenue where we told the city of New Orleans, “We are the BEST place to shop and the BEST place to call when you need the perfect gift hand delivered.”

On a beautiful August afternoon, we took our marketing team to the Ponchartrain Hotel and captured perfect pictures of what we do best…gifts!  Amanda Mohon was our team photographer.  Outside of her Basketry work, she also works on the side as a photographer for weddings and families, so her expertise was greatly appreciated.  Alexandra and Kristi helped design and model each gift.  Together, we had a lot of fun, worked extremely hard and created what we think is going to be a great holiday season.

Many companies turn to us to handle their client gifting.  They want something unique and love to shop local.  Here are a few gifts that our customers have already committed to for their holiday gifts.  If you need corporate gifts whether it is one or several hundred, let us take care of you.  It’s never too early to plan your holiday gifts.

As we kick off fourth quarter to plan for new gifts, new advertisements, and new website changes, it is important to note that our designs are created with customers in mind.  After 23 years of helping companies put together impressive gifts, we know what they are looking for.  Our wooden pine boxes are a new look for us this year, and have already proven to become a #1 seller.  The slick and sophisticated design with the opportunity for branding on the outside is a great way to send your gratitude!

You can look for these photos in upcoming ads, our online brochure, our website and social media.

If you need a gift hand delivered same day or shipped to clients, family and friends give us a call!

 

Want to know a fun fact?  After we booked our room and took pictures inside of the beautiful hotel, we headed to the rooftop to capture some with our unique city in the background.  We were such party animals that they kicked us out of the rooftop bar!  Just kidding.  We did have to reschedule our photo shoot so we didn’t upset the other paying customers.

Look for these and many more beautiful gifts on our website!

Kristi, Alexandra & Amanda
