Scott’s Tips: Holiday Gifting Guidance

Scott's Tips, Holiday Gifting Guidance

The holidays are right around the corner and will be here before you know it. It’s our busiest season at The Fruit Company, and we have quite a few holiday suggestions in store for our readers. In today’s blog post, learn about our top three tips for choosing a presentable and stylish gift.

When Should I Order My Gift for the Holidays?

AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!  We encourage our customers to order and select delivery for your holiday gifts as early as possible, and it’s as important as ever this year as UPS has projected a record number of online orders and are anticipating delivery delays in the final two weeks leading up to Christmas!

Orders can be purchased online at or made through a phone order by calling our stellar Customer Service team at 1-800-387-3100. Some of our best deals happen on Black Friday and Cyber Monday following Thanksgiving so if you have not signed up for Holiday emails, do so now here .

Again, the tip we cannot stress enough this year is to choose a date of arrival well before Christmas. Not only is UPS warning of unpredictable delivery times, but as we all know, weather can also be unpredictable this time of year, so choosing an earlier date can help to ensure an on-time delivery.

The Perfect Choice for an Unforgettable Gift

We design our gifts to please your loved ones. There are many reasons to choose a beautiful gift basket, tower or box from The Fruit Company. Here are a few:

  • We build each gift to ensure maximum freshness and quality.
  • Only the best in class products are used in our fruit baskets. Our high customer review reflects this commitment.
  • We grow much of our own fruit, which sets us apart from our competitors.
  • We are a fully integrated growing and gift building operation. You can be assured that we will take the utmost care of the fruit, from growing it on the tree to delivering a pristine finished product to your loved ones.

Top Three Tips for Choosing a Presentable and Stylish Gift This Holiday Season

At The Fruit Company, we create each gift with the customer in mind. Our first tip is to make sure that your gift has ‘open appeal’. When your recipient opens your gift, what is the presentation like? We have many ways of ensuring our open appeal is superior. From the way our fruit is positioned to the finishing touches of the final bow, we aim to make the first impression of each gift exciting and enjoyable for your loved ones to receive, open and enjoy.

Our second tip is to customize your gift by adding a thoughtful card message, choosing a unique ribbon, or adding an extra gourmet item. We know that sending a gift with one of our signature gift cards is a representation of you, the customer, and how you feel about your recipient. At The Fruit Company, we offer many ways that you can choose to customize a gift. You can simply pick one of our signature add ons while on the product page or you may call in to add a unique message to your ribbon. Many of our corporate gifters include a logo or a splash of marketing collateral in each of their gifts.

Our final tip is to work with one our Customer Service Specialists for any further customizations you may have. Within each gift creation found at The Fruit Company, we try to give you various options all pointing to the highest in quality materials and products. Our main goal with each gift is to have your loved ones call you to rave about what you have just sent them. When you receive that call of thanks, we know we have done our job right!

Scott’s Favorite Gifts This Season

I have two favorites. First is the Oregon’s Finest Gift Box and second is our Grand Holiday Gift Tower. Both of these gifts have components that I just love and both gifts look and feel very high end. I plan to send them to each of my own personal loved ones this holiday season. I can hardly wait to hear back from each of my family members and business contacts with their feedback.

Have a Very Merry Holiday

Each one of our gifts are a work of art. At The Fruit Company, there is a unique person who is responsible for every gift that is built and sent. It is like family at the company, and we all take your gifts very seriously. There is no other business quite like ours, we get to bring you and each of your recipients such joy during this special time. We truly feel a part of the gift giving experience and it is something we take great pride in.

We wish you a joyous holiday and please let us know how we can assist you in providing something that represents the way you feel about your loved ones. Happy Holidays!
