If you’re anything like me, you love buying presents as much if not more than receiving them. There’s something magical about that moment when you see your giftee’s eyes light up with joy that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. However, truth be told, unearthing that jaw-dropping gift isn’t an easy job to do, especially nowadays when there’s a myriad of options to choose from. Jewellery, teddy bears, skincare, high-end liquor, clothes… it’s literally a never-ending list.
Moreover, things can get really hectic when there’s a big holiday approaching such as Easter, Christmas, Valentine’s Day etc. Boy oh boy, heading out on a gift shopping spree during the holiday’s season can make you feel like Alice in Wonderland without a caterpillar or Mad Hatter to help you on your journey.
But worry not, been there, done that. There’s a way you can step up your gift-giving game and still preserve your sanity. I got 4 words for you – same day gift baskets. These bad boys come in handy if you want to skip the frantic holiday shopping or if *perish the thought* you forget that it’s your BFFs b-day. Call them last-minute lifesavers if you will, although they don’t look last-minute at all.
What So Special About Same-Day Delivery Service?
Waiting for a package that won’t arrive at your home address is a wild, wild ride mixed with stress, anxiety and anticipation. Even if you order a self-gift, the moment you click that shiny “complete my order” button you start pacing around like El Patrón in the bored Escobar meme. Not having to go through this emotional roller coaster is the main reason why people want same-day delivery.
Not to mention how convenient it is for the forgetful gift-buyer. Instead of showing up empty-handed, thinking of awkward excuses or washing your conscience with a belated gift, you can lean on same day gift baskets and consider your, pardon my French, derrère saved.
Will Your Hamper Give Away Your Little Secret?
Let’s be honest, sometimes it’s better to show up with no gift at all than showing up with some last-minute generic gift. That’s why many people label same day hampers as a no go. However, the same day delivery hampers of today look everything but last-minute, generic or cheap. As a matter of fact, some of the gorgeously arranged same day hampers nowadays are so beautiful that they can easily pass as art.
What’s more, Australia is lucky to have some heaven-sent companies that offer easy online customization with just a few clicks. You can have your say in the shape, size and what’s included inside to create a thoughtful masterpiece with the recipient in mind. Of course, if you’re in quite a hurry, you can opt for some of the artfully presented ready to send baskets and add a personal touch with a greeting card or ribbon.
Why Are Same-Delivery Baskets Such Great Gifts?
Because they’re one big beautiful concoction of the most popular gifts of all time. Chocolates, liquor, self-care items, cosmetics, homewares, gift hampers offer you the opportunity to shower your giftee with all sorts of goodies. Easily available and affordable but in no way cheap, a gift hamper is a gift to rule them all. With that being said let’s peek inside and see what’s usually in a hamper.
The Pamper Hamper
What’s a better gift than a gift of pampering and relaxation? This type of gift basket contains self-care items such as cosmetics, resort wear, candles, essential oils, chocolates and liquor. Just imagine receiving one of these lovelies! A mini-vacay inside a box. You put on a fluffy robe, slip into cosy slippers, set the mood with candles and raise a toast to the greatest gift buyer of all times.
The Boozy Hamper
Now, this is where it gets very exciting. If you’re thinking that a boozy hamper is just a bottle of wine with some chocolates to fill in the space, think again. Some of the greatest booze hampers of today include the most exquisite wines paired with carefully selected foods to bring out the full bouquet of flavours. Talk about a feast for the senses.
There are also booze-tasting hampers filled with the finest craft beers specially crafted for those who prefer their water with hops. And if you’re on the hunt for unique gifts for gin lovers, a gin-tasting hamper is bound to knock their socks off. Cheers to that!
The Plant-Parent Hamper
Flower bouquets are still among the most popular gifts, but with more and more Millennials becoming obsessed with house plants, it seems like living greenery is slowly stealing the show. To make the plant parent in your life smile, choose a hamper with a potted plant with a symbolic meaning such as succulents (enduring and timeless love), Peace Lilly (peace and prosperity), money tree (good luck and wealth).
There are many other plants that make lovely gifts, but it’s worth mentioning that these three are very easy to care for. Plus, they’ll keep thriving for many years down the road, reminding your giftee of you.
The Edible Bouquet Hamper
Last, but not least, there’s the sweet, sweet hamper comprised of fine Belgian chocolates, doughnuts, bliss balls, lollipops (whatever floats your giftee’s boat) beautifully arranged in the shape of a bouquet. Another great substitute for freshly cut flowers that end up in the trash, an edible bouquet will win your loved one’s heart through their stomach.
