Fruit Baskets for Business Case Study

Fruit Baskets Hampers Ideas; A Case Study

The Challenge – Fruit Bouquets

Looking for the Best Gift Idea for your Business?
We do fruit baskets for a building company who feature a handover basket on completion of the new home.  Previously, the company had used gift package filled with products from the supermarket.  But the admin lady had moved on and none of the staff had the time, inclination or talent to put one together.  As the director put it…

“We had run out of ideas and were giving vouchers – but handing over a voucher did not have the same impact as a fresh fruit basket.  We have noticed a great face to face response in handing over with a professionally made Fruit Basket.”

Get Well Soon Gifts

The customer is a local franchisee of a nationally known building company, so there is a high expectation of quality control and maintaining brand standards.
Hunter Valley Hampers undertook to ensure that the fruit baskets would be delivered in pristine condition to the recipients home, with personalised messages and some unique inclusions depending on the clients likes.  We made sure that ordering was simple and that the fruit basket would be delivered promptly.

Hampers for Men

After the intial enquiry phone call, Brendan or Kacy from Hunter Valley Hampers visited the business with a selection of fruit baskets for approval.  We explained that due to seasonal fluctuations in the price and quality of fruit, there would be some variation in the contents of the fruit baskets, but that generous size and blemish free fruit would be maintained regardless.

“I was surprised at the value for money with the fruit baskets.  At first we were sceptical that the quality would be consistent, but Brendan and Kacy at Hunter Valley Hampers have not let us down.”

Baby Hampers Sydney

Insider Secrets Christmas Gift Basket Shops Don’t Want You to Know

Every industry has trade secrets and hidden truths that it keeps from the general retail public about the industry. Simple things about the product, or the sales process, or the transaction that favors the business owner ad leaves the retail buyer at a distinct disadvantage.

Pamper Hamper

And the purpose of this article is to expose them to you, the buyer, so you will be a more astute consumer of gift basket and hampers in future. I am not here to discredit the industry, or paint the hard working fellow gift basket makers as a canny or untrustworthy lot – far from it. Just a few little things to look out for that will save you money and help you drive a better bargain next time you order.

Christmas Hampers with Cherries
Christmas Cherry Box – The Best Kept Secret At Fruit Baskets Newcastle

Here’s the most important thing to remember when you are ordering a hamper or gift basket – nine out of ten people who order will not ever see what they are paying for. Simple as that.


Hamper Ideas

In the vast majority of cases, the hamper will be ordered by one party, and set to another destination, to be opened by the recipient who has no idea what to expect. So the representation to the buyer is something similar and near to as possible as that actually delivered to the recipient.

This is a fundamental difference to most other online ordering experiences, where the item is ordered and the recipient is the same person. You see what you want, order it, and then you get it. With gift baskets and hampers, the case it you see it and order it, and then a very close approximation, depending on what is in stock and your preferences, is delivered to the recipient. Big difference. Be aware that some gift basket shops will exploit this fact to the maximum and push the limits of what is being delivered compared to what is being ordered.

Fruit Boxes

Also keep an eye on packaging and presentation. Now this starts with the very image you will be looking at in the catalog or on the website. Immediately the products are neatly arranged around a central theme, with matching colors and most likely some props and situation items scattered around. Like baubles and sprigs of Christmas Tree setting the scene for a Christmas Hamper, or glasses and champagne flutes for a wine hamper. Note most often these are not included in the actual gift basket you will be sending to your recipient. Note how some things are not included, a disclaimer like ‘props not included’ should be clearly visible.

Packaging can be a further reveal when there is none – in other words the gift selection is actually a collection of products in a cardboard box. Now whilst strictly speaking this is a gift being delivered as promised, without props, it is quite distinct from seeing the neatly arranged presentation in the catalog or website. It is just some products in a box. Your recipient may not get the same tingly feeling pulling out some products from a box, it certainly doesn’t feel like a gift basket or a hamper when it doesn’t come prepared in an actual wicker basket.

Hampers For Men

Being completely switched on with what you are buying, and what condition you expect the goods to be delivered in is a great way to avoid disappointment when ordering a Christmas Hamper or gift basket. Just by noting these simple tips and hints I hope you will enjoy a more satisfying and complete experience next time you order online. In the meantime, enjoy your gift baskets and hampers.

No seriously, we do


Everyday, just make sure you let us know as soon as you can so we can process your order and get it to the John Hunter Hospital on time.

How do I send a Fruit Hamper?

3 Tips for Sending a Fruit Baskets or Fruit Hamper?

First, here’s a simple checklist to make your job so much easier.

1. Have your delivery address details with you when you call. Do you have the exact delivery address and as much detail as possible, including any important information that might help the delivery person? Things like is there a dog at the residence, or the ward name and bed number, or a mobile phone contact of the recipient all go towards making the delivery run smoothly for the courier, and most importantly, for you so there is lees chance of missed-communication or confusion.

2. If possible have your message prepared before you call. if you have artisitc flair and would like to share your message with your recipient in more detail than a simple Get Well Soon or Thinking of You it always pays to write out your message and edit it prior to making your order phone call. At Fruit Baskets Newcastle we appreciate it may be an emotional event for you and in all the hustle and bustle of organizing your delivery you may have overlooked one of the most important details – your personal message. Don’t worry, we can talk you through the process and offer advice.

3. We offer over 16 unique Fruit Basket designs, which is the largest range of Fruit Baskets and Fruit Hampers at an independent Australian retailer, something we are justly proud of and no doubt keeps us at number one year after year. So you may be overwhelmed with choice considering the popularity of the designs. So once again, we are here to help and you can be confident your suggestion for a custom Hamper will be met with a positive response. After all, it is a challenge ad a thrill to make your fruit basket just as you request!

So with this in mind we hope you will make the right decision and give Newcastle Fruit Baskets the opportunity to be your partner in a delivered fruit Hamper to your friend, co-worker or colleague.
