The Types Of Gifts People Are Giving In The Wake Of COVID-19

The spring of 2020 has been an unprecedented time all over the United States. People have been staying home and social distancing to stop the spread of Covid-19. It has been a difficult time for everyone since in spite of all the turmoil, life has gone on. Friends and family may not be able to gather but the desire to share life events, both happy and sad has not changed in this time of coronavirus. Now as we open up again things seem to be getting back to a “new” normal.

At The Basketry, we have been here through it all to help you to express your feeling with gifting,  As New Orleans comes back to life stronger and better than ever we look forward to serving you in person as we have for over 20 years. We have some gifting suggestions to help you reconnect with some of those you haven’t seen since everything shut down.

Gifts of Gratitude – Saying Thank you is more important now more than ever.
