Package an Assortment of Savings in Your Next Gift Basket

Gift baskets are one of my favorite things to give. They’re just so incredibly personalizable. I can give a gift basket of fun toys to my young daughter, and one with gourmet meats and cheeses to my husband. My girlfriends always get gift baskets filled with fun bath, body, and beauty products so we can have spa days at our houses, and my wine-loving mom just loves her wine baskets. The possibilities are endless, but one thing is always certain — people love getting gift baskets. They’re fun to open and shuffle through, discovering all the thoughtful and exciting little items hidden inside.

Here are a few tips for how to shop for these amazing arrangements on a budget.

Earning Cash Back on Gift Baskets

With Ebates Cash Back, it feels like someone is paying you just for shopping. In fact, that’s basically the case. You’ll get a percentage back of every eligible dollar you spend at an Ebates-featured store, and you can redeem this Cash Back for real, green money.

There are so many different stores that allow you to earn Cash Back at Ebates, so always check before shopping online to see if you can both save and earn money on your online orders. Or, you can download the Ebates Button if you use a Google Chrome browser so you never miss out on big savings whenever you shop online!

Use Coupon and Promo Codes

Whenever you’re shopping online for gift baskets, you should always look for coupon and promo codes before checking out to really maximize your savings. At Ebates, you can find coupon and promo codes for each of your favorite stores like Gourmet Gift Baskets,, and David’s Cookies. These codes can add amazing deals to your order like free delivery, free gifts, and even extra discounts on best-selling baskets. The codes are always being updated, so check the Ebates page for your favorite stores often to stay in the know.

Make Your Own Baskets

I’m not talking about weaving here. I’m talking about buying your favorite items at your favorite stores and creating your very own gift basket with these products. I love making baskets for friends with a mix of items from our favorite stores like The Body Shop, Godiva, and L’OCCITANE.

Instead of being limited to one brand or store, or a selection of pre-made gift baskets, I can buy a bunch of items on sale and then combine them into beautiful, custom DIY baskets.

Find Free Delivery Deals

Getting free delivery on your gift baskets is like getting a little gift for yourself just for giving a gift. Look for places that offer free delivery either on all orders or on orders over a specific dollar amount, or find coupon and promo codes that add free delivery to your order.

Shop Sale Sections

It’s true — even gift basket stores have discount and sale sections. FTD Flowers is known for having an excellent sales and discount section with up to half off the regular price of gifts. Capalbo’s Gift Baskets has regular promotions where select baskets are up to 20% off. Other stores have Special Offer sections, like Edible Arrangements, where you can find amazing deals on pre-packaged baskets.

Watch for Seasonal and Holiday Sales

Certain holidays and seasons just call for gift baskets. Around Christmas, you can find a lot of wine, cheese, and gourmet snack baskets marked down to celebrate the season of getting together and dining. During the hot summer months, find deals on refreshing gift baskets like bright bunches of daisies or sunflowers from Organic Bouquet. Always check around the turning of the seasons and all the major holidays to find special sales pricing on so many items.

Email Alert Savings

Whenever you sign up to receive emails from a store, you’ll always be sent notice about upcoming sales, current promotions, and even special discount codes. If there is a store you shop at frequently, join their email list to make sure you never miss out on savings or sales again.

Refer a Friend Programs

Lots of stores that sell gifts will give you a decent discount if you refer friends who then place orders. ProFlowers, for example, gives you $15 off your order if a friend you refer places an order. The friend also gets $15 off that first order to encourage them to shop, which means savings for them, too!

Look for programs like this and consider referring your co-workers, colleagues, and others who need to send gift baskets at different points throughout the year to bosses, clients, or loved ones. This is a really easy way to rack up savings and rewards money, as well as pass savings on to others, which is a gift in itself.
