• Ask about allergies. If possible, find out whether the recipient has allergies. Many companies will make substitutions if you inquire when ordering.
  • Consider the shipping cost. Shipping and handling of gift baskets, especially those that contain perishables, can run as much as $40.
  • Make sure you can track the package. Before placing an order, find out how the company tracks shipments and get a tracking number.
  • Order early for holidays. To ensure holiday deliver, contact the company to learn the order cut-off date. December 19 is a common deadline date for Christmas delivery.
