The quality, presentation and surprise of a gift basket makes it an exceptional gift idea for life’s most special occasions.

Within our collection of special celebration gift baskets you’ll find wedding baskets, engagement gifts, retirement gifts, new baby and parent gifts and more.

Our food baskets are a celebration in themselves; a celebration of the wonderful food that’s being created by British independent producers.

Great wedding gift ideas include Champagne gifts for toasting or afternoon tea gift baskets for the newlyweds to relax with.

You can also send our alcohol free wedding gifts Canada bound – so they’re great wedding gift ideas if you’ve missed the wedding.

Our new baby gifts and new parent gifts contain toys and clothes for the new arrival, whilst making sure the new parents are suitably treated to a host of indulgent, artisan treats.

Whether you’re looking for thank you gifts for mum, thank you gifts for staff or thank you gifts for him, our diverse range of food baskets means we’ll have the perfect gift to send.


What special celebration gift baskets do you have?

Within our special celebration gift basket collection, we have wedding gift baskets, new home gifts and new baby and parent gift baskets.


These differ from our collection of annual event gift baskets in that they’re special occasions that happen infrequently throughout life.


They’re so special that they deserve some serious celebrating, and our celebration food baskets make sure that happens!

Where are your food baskets made?

We create all our gift baskets at our HQ in Lincolnshire, UK. And all the food within our gift baskets is sourced from Britain's top artisan producers - most of which are award-winning. 


We then very carefully hand-pack all food into our top-quality wicker baskets and British themed gift boxes. 


We then securely package our gift baskets for UK and international gift delivery. For all the countries we offer international gift delivery to - including Canada - we send every gift basket on a tracked, express delivery service via a reputable courier. 

What other celebrations are British food baskets great gift ideas for?

Aside from wedding gift baskets, housewarming gifts and new baby gift boxes, there are plenty of other very special occasions that our celebration gift baskets are perfect for.


Many customers choose to send engagement gift baskets, graduation gifts, new job gift baskets and retirement gifts.


Gourmet food baskets are brilliant celebratory gifts. An abundance of top-quality food delivered to the door in a beautiful gift basket enhances celebrations perfectly.

Why are housewarming gift baskets good new home gifts ideas?

Our new home gift baskets make exceptional housewarming gift ideas for three key reasons.


Firstly, our gourmet food baskets are celebratory gifts. The surprise arrival of a beautifully presented, high-quality gift basket will without doubt elate your loved ones.


Secondly, in the first week of moving home your loved ones will be busy unpacking. A food basket delivery containing exquisite, award-winning produce will be immensely well-received. Not only will you be providing them with provisions, but you’re also giving them the best of British.


Finally, new homeowners’ tastes can be very subjective meaning a housewarming gift of homeware or art can be risky.


Our new home gift baskets remove that risk. The gift baskets are predominantly food based with an array of treats to suit all tastes and the British designer homeware is very neutral.

How do new home baskets differ to the other gift basket types?

Our new home gifts and housewarming presents differ slightly from our wedding gift baskets and new baby gift boxes and baskets.


Some of our welcome home gift baskets include a mixture of food and homeware. The food is sourced from Britain’s leading independent producers and the homeware is created by artisan British designers.


The homeware in our housewarming gifts include fine bone China mugs, hand-poured candles, and high-quality organic cotton tea towels.


There are similarities though between our new home baskets, wedding baskets and new baby gift baskets. They’re all celebratory gifts so many are celebratory in style featuring Champagne, Prosecco, and other high-quality alcohols.

Do you have dietary celebration baskets?

Yes, we have many options including vegan wedding gifts, gluten free wedding gifts, vegetarian new home gifts, halal gift baskets, gluten free wedding gifts, diabetic wedding gifts and more.


Many celebration gift baskets mention the dietary requirement in their names; however, you can also search for dietary gift baskets by visiting our dietary gifts page.

What’s included in the special celebration gift baskets?

Our food gift baskets for special occasions are comprised of hand-picked artisan produce as well as charming homeware and new baby gifts.


Looking for a nightcap? You’ll find fine Ruggeri Prosecco, English Sparkling wine and Champagne for toasting, along with British Pimm’s for warm summer days and Scotch whisky for dark winter evenings.


Trying to impress a foodie? There are Great Taste Award-winning biscuits, deli items and luxury chocolates from across the lengths of the UK.


Welcoming a loved one to their new home? Our new home gifts feature hand-illustrated London themed tea towels and mugs from Victoria Eggs alongside fragrant candles from St Eval.


Celebrating a new arrival? Discover cuddly Odell octopus from Jellycat, gorgeously soft sleepsuits from Fred and Noah and James Ellis’ milestone cards, ideal for treasuring each special moment.

Are the special celebration baskets available for EU delivery?

Our gift baskets to EU range are all despatched from our distribution hub in the Netherlands, meaning that we can only hold a smaller range for delivery there.


As such, our EU gift baskets are not included in this section, however, we have a brilliant range of luxury food baskets for EU delivery which you can view here


These gifts to Europe are suitable for all occasions, so whether you’re looking to send a luxury wedding gift, new arrival basket, housewarming gift or something for another celebratory occasion, our gift baskets to send to Europe will be a perfect fit.
