Easter Snowstorms

Every year us canadians forget how bad our winter is. We keep thinking that when April comes along we will have a picture perfect spring with beautiful flowers and warmer weather. For the most part this picture perfect image is only in advertisements and in our heads because the minute we look out our window we see the snow that refuses to go away!

What keeps us happy at Glitter Gift Baskets is binge eating all the delicious Easter Chocolates. All the beautifully packaged chocolates in bright spring colours will definitely brighten your day. Easter is around the corner and we have already started receiving our pre booking orders for Easter.

Have something specific in mind? Let us know and we will gladly help you in fulfilling your special request.

Mother's Day is Around the Corner!

There is only a few days left until Mother's Day and our phone lines are flooded with calls from frantic husbands asking for advise on what to buy for the New Mom, Mother and Mother-in-Law.

Selecting the perfect gift can be quite tricky. One has to consider many different elements; budget, tastes and preferences. The most popular choices are always chocolate, spa products and fine jewelry.

Quality is crucial when sending out a basket to a loved one that is precisely why at Glitter Gift Baskets we use only the finest spa products by Crabtree & Evelyn and Upper Canada Soap. Our Chocolates and cookies are also phenomenal!! (Unfortunately for our waistlines) We use the finest imported French and Belgian Chocolate and popular brand names like Godiva, Chocolatier Dolfin, and Maxim de Paris.

Special Mother-in-LawA Special Mother-in-Law basket is quite original. We were very pleased when first saw this basket in our Mother's Day Collection. A unique picture frame with a special inscription "Mother-in-law on the family tree means nothing less than Mom to me." If this doesn't impress her and make her heart melt then nothing will!!
La Source Spa Getaway

 The La Source Spa Getaway is also another top pick for this season. The La Source scent by Crabtree & Evelyn is absolutely the best and so fresh for the summer! This gift basket contains everything you need to get in a warm bath and relax and pamper yourself over candle light while eating your delicious Godiva Chocolates.
Swarovski Crystal Heart
The Swarovski Crystal Heart Mother's Day Special is a great little gift for your special Mom. It is on sale for $59.00 with FREE delivery. Its a great deal and much better than a bouquet of flowers because she will have the Swarovski Crystal Heart for a lifetime and she will cherish it.

The 2014 Valentine’s Day Collection is now Live!!!

Every year when we are beginning to plan our Valentine's gift basket collection we turn to our customers for feedback. What we keep hearing more and more is that the traditional dozen roses is getting old and predictable. Girls want to be wowed!! Most importantly with the younger generations they want it to be public. They want a display, a big gift that will turn heads!

Social Media plays a large role in this new phenomenon of making everyone feel like a 'celebrity'. Girls want to receive an impressive gift that their co-workers/friends will see. Then they want to post it on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter so that everyone can see the thoughtful gift their loved one sent them.

The main contributing factor to the success of our Valentine's  Day Gift Basket Collection is primarily due to high end luxury brand names that have recognition. Brands that draw attention and add wow factor! Including but not limited to Swarovski, Godiva, Crabtree and Evelyn,  and Maxim de Paris.

Below are some of our Top Picks for Valentine's
