Great Auntie PatSpeedy beautiful presentationNovember 7, 2015
Even after errors in ordering - this basket was delivered in less than 24 hours of ordering. It was bought in memory of my Mother in law's last remaining sibling. I picked this one as it was best suited for all ages. It was enjoyed by all.
My Mom got a big thank you call from all the girls- it was a big hit. The big hit with me was how the errors in order were corrected with lightening speed.
I will be using this site again and have already referred several folks to this site.

onegr8z28BIG, BEAUTIFUL BLESSING!!!!August 9, 2015
I sent this sympathy fruit basket to my uncle in N.Y. State who just lost his wife (my aunt) of 61 years. There are no words to comfort a loss such as this, but this fruit basket not only arrived in such a speedy manner it was a big, beautiful blessing, as well!!! My uncle and cousins were amazed at how big and beautiful it was!!! I live in Oklahoma and was a little hesitant to order a fruit basket from any company because of lack of knowledge in this area. When I saw the Gift Tree website the items offered were very impressive. When I talked to my sister-in-law who works in a florist here in Oklahoma, she told me they use the Gift Tree all the time and they were a very good company. That's all I needed to know. I used the Gift Tree and was BEYOND pleased with every aspect of this transaction. I would highly recommend The Gift Tree and will be a returning customer for sure!!! Thank you again!!!

GibsHRHighly RecommendMarch 22, 2014
When a family expresses that they do not wish to receive flowers, yet you would like to send a friend or co-worker something to let them know you care - this basket is a great choice.
My co-worker was able to snack on the fruit when she didn't feel like cooking, there are also many other treats and treasures in the basket that distracted her for a time and lifted her spirits. I've ordered this several times and always received good feedback.
In sympathyPerfect giftMarch 19, 2014
My friend, who received this gift, commented that it was absolutely beautiful and that she would highly recommend to others. It was delivered the same day I ordered it and, although I didn't personally see it, she said the food was good and that she and her family "tore into it" the moment it arrived. I will order gift baskets from you again!

SatisfiedWonderful BasketFebruary 25, 2014
This is the first time that I have used this site and I was a little nervous about using them but I needed a delivery quickly. One of my best friends lost her father and I am out of the country and could not be there for her. They guaranteed delivery the next day. The lady that assisted me was very helpful and professional on the phone. She told me the basket that I ordered was one of their popular ones.
The basket arrived the next day and my friend said that it was beautiful. I am so happy that it arrived on time and made a great presentation. I will be using this site again!
AppreciativeNice Alternative to Traditional FlowersFebruary 24, 2014
I ordered the Sympathy and Gourmet Fruit Basket as an alternative to traditional flowers. The ordering process was quick and easy, and the basket was delivered out-of-state the next day. The recipients said the basket was beautiful and timely. I would definitely consider ordering this basket as alternative in the future.
Sympathy BasketGreat serviceFebruary 1, 2014
Although I had asked the basket to be left on the doorstep if no one was home, the basket was not delivered that day. However, they contacted me and delivered the next day. They corrected the problem immediately and were very helpful and apologetic. The recipient also loved the basket.

This was the perfect gift to send to a friend who recently lost a loved one. With family in from out-of-town, it arrived in time for all to enjoy. The recipient stated, "fruit and gourmet items were presented very nicely in the basket, as though done with great thoughtfulness".
Good FriendGood visual presentationNovember 18, 2013
I did not see this basket; it was sent to a friend of mine that lives about 40 miles from me.
I liked the fact that this company had a basket to fit my needs and was able to deliver it within 24 hours. That alone was worth the price.
My friend called me to thank me for the "Beautiful basket" that I sent her. Her words "It was refreshing to get real fruit and lots of it".
I will definitely use this company again. I would recommend it to everyone.

My company has ordered a couple different sympathy baskets that have been well recieved. Unfortunately I did not see them in person but what I did see what how easy the process to order with this site is and recommended them to others in my company immediately after placing my last order. I was even able to get same day delivery and confirmation of delivery which made it even easier. I am very impressed!

Sent this basket to casual friend, from a group of people. Was delivered on time, without extra fee, which was main reason for choosing this site. Did not see actual product, so cannot comment on the quality of product. No glowing comments from the receiver, but it was much appreciated. So can't say anything else on product.

CaptainJimOutstandingJuly 28, 2013
This basket was outstanding and a much better way to express sympathy than just sending flowers.We couldn't make the funeral because it was out of state so this was by far the best way for us to express our sympathy with the family.

we sent a deluxe sympathy fruit basket to the family of a close friend that passed. They were very appreciative & impressed with the basket. They sent a picture and said it was gorgeous. I cannot believe the fastest delivery ever! I ordered it and 2 hours later it arrived, at no additional cost. I definetly recommend this site, I will use them again. They offer a wider variety than Harry & David, Pro flowers etc. , and they have unique gifts as well.

My secret personal assistant! I love the ease of selecting something for whatever occasion. I especially love the attention my orders get if I neglected to be clear about something. And, most often I have to leave my phone number for them to call if there are delivery issues and they are always on top of delivery challenges.
RozA beautiful basket at time of grievingJune 19, 2013
I had never heard of this company before I did an online search for a sympathy gift basket. The company that I usually use had too much candy, etc in them and the baskets looked a little too cheerful for this occasion. My friend, who lost her Father, was grief-stricken and does not eat a lot of unhealthy foods. I wanted something that contained a great mix and included fruits. Everyone in the receiving family raved about it and said that it was really beautiful as well. It seemed like a good value for what I was getting, along with the contents and appearance being what I wanted for this family. I will always use this company again for all future gift basket needs!

I have never used this website before so I was a bit nervous. I didn't see the final product in person, but I heard from several people that it was beautiful. I even received a call from the delivery person to let me know where they were leaving the package because no one was home when delivery was being made. I will definitely order from these good folks again in the future.

TraceyTop Quality Customer ServiceMarch 28, 2013
Customer service rep was great, he was very sensitive to my needs, this gift was for an employee who had a tragic death in the family out of state. The rep took his time to help me find the perfect and appropriate gift. I just got word back from our employee that the basket was delivered the same day I ordered it, and it was an amazing gift. I wish I wrote the reps name down, he really went above and beyond to help with a difficult task. Thank you!

In Desperate Need for last minute giftBeautiful PresentationMarch 13, 2013
I ordered the sympathy fruit and gourmet basket on March 7, 2013 for my god grandmother's funeral which was held in Roanoke Rapids, NC. I called customer service and spoke with one of the nicest customer service representatives(I wish I could remember her name) and she was very patient with me and I did not feel rushed at all. I was concerned about how the assortment was going to look, the fruit being fresh,and the arrival time. I spoke with my godmother the same afternoon and the basket arrived the same day WOW! I was very surprised because it wasn't supposed to be delivered until the next day(3/8)'. My godmother said the fruit basket was beautiful and she really loved how it was decorated. The basket was brown with a big pretty purple bow filled with an assortment of FRESH fruits such as pears,apples,grapes,oranges,jelly,chocolate,crackers,nuts,etc..Everyone enjoyed the fruit and there was plenty to go around. I Will definitely use you again! God bless u guys

Evelyn and the local vendors made this happen. A friend lost a mother suddenly and I received the address for the ceremony on a Friday, yet this basket was able to arrive to the home by Sunday and meant a great deal to the family, provided some comfort during a very difficult time. Thank you.
gourmetIncredibly Conscientious and KindMarch 10, 2013
I am so grateful to you for making this happen, in particular Evelyn who involved herself in the process. A close friend lost his mom and I received the address for the Sunday funeral on a Friday evening, Evelyn and the local vendor conspired to bring my friend and his sister a beautiful and much appreciated basket, on time. I was told it was "appreciated" and "comforting". Thank you Evelyn and local vendors for creating a gourmet, and most important, timely, basket. You are the best and have earned a long term customer.

JoanSA Beautiful Expression of Shared SympathyMarch 19, 2012
This beautiful basket of fruits and other gourmet goodies was delivered same day - very soon after I ordered it from a town on Long Island, NY, to a small community in Michigan. The computer did it all and did it so well! The mourners who received it took the time to call me and express their delight with this lovely basket. It was generously filled and very much appreciated. I have used this site; it is a classy, consistent and excellent service. Thanks. By the way, I rated you excellent, but the computer would not register it (above my comment).

This basket was ordered @ 11AM, and delivered by the end of the business day on the same day. It had very fresh fruit and it was very much appreciated by the recipients. Even though it was sent very fast, it didn't look "rushed"...very, VERY happy with our purchase.

I've sent this gift 3 times in the last 2 years and it has always been appreciated. The fruit was perfect and the other goodies- cheese, crackers, coffee- were exactly what my relatives needed at a time when they weren't up to eating meals.
linda lindenAbsolutely something that i order againOctober 27, 2011
I got the most wonderful feedback from the person I sent the basket to. He could'nt get over how beautiful, wonderful and thoughtful it was, It was a funeral basket.
I wanted it to be something different than the usual flowers sent to the funeral home. I wanted it to be for the person that I knew and respected and felt grief for.
Thank you for making it special and delivering it according to my instructions. I deffinetly will pass your name to other colleagues that order baskets.
