eBaskets.com Launches Custom Gift Basket Site  
Said Greg McFadzen, President of eBaskets.com,  "I noticed that the problems online shoppers were experiencing were repetitive and largely going unaddressed... There were no unique products out there. That’s why I let my customers Create-a-Basket on our web site. They decide what ingredients go into their gift. Their gift isn’t just another SKU #. It has a more personal touch".

Does it ever seem, when shopping online for the holidays, that having a larger selection of quality gifts means sacrificing personal attention and service?

Well, if you combine years of industry experience, an unbelievable selection of products, an easy to use web site and of course that elusive “one on one” attention, then you’ve got the remedy.  eBaskets.com is the premier online gifting site providing it’s customers with one stop shopping and click and send convenience for hundreds of gifts.  eBaskets.com offers a large selection of gourmet dinners, fruit baskets, chocolate, flowers and plants, baby gifts to the ability to pick and choose to create a custom basket that’s uniquely…well, you!

Greg McFadzen, President of eBaskets.com, like many new business owners had accumulated enough experience in the sales and management field in larger firms to really question whether or not he wanted to work as part of a huge team anymore.  He had reached a point where running his own team, calling his own shots and creating a thriving business wasn’t just an option but a possibility and a goal.  Having prior experience in financial consulting and sales management, where he got his business-to-business experience in the gifting industry, Greg took the leap from employee to employer.

The result, www.eBaskets.com has jumped onto the web with unparalleled gift selection, customer service that is second to none and every convenience online shoppers have come to expect and moreover, demand.

“I noticed that the problems online shoppers were experiencing were repetitive and largely going unaddressed.  Tackling those problems, such as impersonal service and lack of individual priority, seems the best investment to date. There were no unique products out there. That’s why I let my customers Create-a-Basket on our web site. They decide what ingredients go into their gift. Their gift isn’t just another SKU #. It has a more personal touch. As an online shopper myself, I hated feeling like my order was on the top of some pile.  We give a great selection, next day delivery and one on one service to both personal shoppers and corporate customers,” says Mr. McFadzen, the site's founder and president.

Have a small or large business yourself?  Well, eBaskets.com offers corporate discounts, discounts for preferred client club for company employees, a Premier Executive Club and custom gifting to add your corporate logo to the gift you choose.  A convenient Calendar Club lets you choose a day you want flowers sent every month so eBaskets does the remembering for you.

All major credit cards are accepted and orders can be placed on ther secure site, www.eBaskets.com  or over the phone by calling 866-522-GIFT.  An email newsletter keeps customer informed about new products, offerings and specials.
