looking specifically for a tea-related gift, hoping to find a basketI was looking specifically for a tea-related gift for a tea lover friend. Was hoping to find a basket. The gift features important to me were the presentation, the ability to choose the type of tea, the range of basket options to choose from. I considered making my purchase from Red Envelope,, Etsy and some local farms before deciding on this Tea Lover Gift Basket gift. Regarding the website: It is fine as it is - didn't have any difficulties. I would have liked to see more black tea options, also tea baskets paired with gourmet goods, baked items, biscuits, etc. An idea for a gift basket? Tea with gourmet goodies - perhaps sent along with beautiful teacup and saucer. I use Facebook more than anything. I buy personal gifts rather than corporate gifts. I found Tea Lover Gift Baskets using a Google search. Written by Julia V. on Thu 15 May 2014 12:42:59 AM GMT
I thought my sister would enjoy thisMy sister likes tea and lives far away so I thought she would enjoy this. Of all the tea gift baskets I look at, this looked the nicest. Using the website went very well. Written by Suzanne A. on Sat 19 Oct 2013 12:48:46 AM GMT
food was an issue...This was a gift for someone who had surgery and food was an issue. I liked the tea gift baskets offered, they are unique. I found the website just fine to use and found what I was looking for. Written by Pauline M. on Mon 15 Oct 2012 5:38:54 PM GMT
