The concept of a charity hamper is to provide service with a difference–the difference being that the gift of a charity hamper gives twice, once to the person you’re sending it to, and once to a charity of your choice, as a portion of the price of each gift basket, Christmas hamper or greeting card sold is donated to charity.
What They Are
Whether you’re running a business or looking for a special gift to show someone you care, gift hampers are the perfect treat. Most companies who offer this service have a huge selection available online, so you can choose the perfect present for any occasion be it the birth of a new baby, a birthday, a wedding or as a thank you present. Whether your basket contains fresh produce, wine and cheeses, assorted baby and mother gifts or even a pamper pack for a decadent night in, most companies can deliver anywhere in Australia and are always received with a smile. A smile that grows even bigger when the recipient realises that they’ve become part of a program that makes sure money gets to where it is really needed.
How They Work
To send someone a gift basket, usually the process is as quick and simple as jumping online a day or two before you’d like the hamper delivered and selecting from a range of products. You’ll have to know the recipient’s address and it’s always a good idea to find out if they’ll be at home or at work so you can make sure they get the gift on time. Once you’ve decided on a product, you can select which charity you’d like your gift to help fund, and many people like to choose a charity that is particularly close to the heart of the person to whom they are sending the gift. Get well baskets are particularly popular and if the person is suffering an ailment it is often possible to make sure a portion of the cost of your gift goes toward a foundation working in a similar area.
Why You Should Get On Board
Gift baskets and Christmas hampers are incredibly convenient both on a business and personal level. In the corporate world, there often arise situations in which you need to show a valued client that you care, or thank a customer for loyal patronage. A gift basket in these situations is the perfect way to show your appreciation. On a more personal level, a gift hamper provides a convenient, time-efficient gift that is beautifully wrapped and delivered right to the front door of the recipient, and what’s best, ordering online means that those last-minute panic attacks when you realise you’ve forgotten mum’s birthday are a thing of the past!
