Wholesale baskets


Wholesale Gift Basket

Making a wholesale gift basket based on wholesale items gives you more choice in basket contents and lowers the overall price of the gift baskets.

What are wholesale gift basket distributors?

Wholesale gift basket distributors sell all of the different things that go in gift baskets at a bulk, wholesale price. This means that they sell large quantities of items for less money than what you would pay for them at an average store. Stores mark up prices when they get products from a wholesaler so if you get something at wholesale price, it's a reduced price.

People usually use a wholesale gift basket distributor when they're planning on making and eventually selling large quantities of gift baskets. In fact, many wholesalers will not let you set up an account unless you're a registered business. So, if you're just a consumer looking for a neat birthday gift idea, you might want to move on!

You can find a wholesale gift basket distributor on-line. They're very easy to find and use. All you have to do is browse through their catalogs, pick the items you want and place and order. Make sure to keep track of how much each item costs so you can price your basket at a price that's affordable, but will still yield a profit.

What should I get?

Well, that's really up to you. Before you check out a wholesale gift basket dealer, come up with a few gift basket themes. If you don't do this, you'll be too scattered and may buy things you don't need when you get on the wholesaler's Web site. If you're going after holiday themes, look for cookies, candy and decorations that suit that theme. For example, you might want to get a cornucopia instead of a basket for a Thanksgiving themed basket. Fill this basket with different seasonal fruits, jams, mustards and other items that can be used at a Thanksgiving feast.

You wholesale gift basket can also include general items that can be used for all different types of occasions including weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and any other celebration. A general gift basket might include different cheese and crackers, sesame sticks, chocolate, candy and other sweet. If you're not into the whole food thing, put together a basket that has spa-oriented stuff. People love these baskets because the pamper the gift recipient.

Another great idea for supplies that you can gather for a wholesale gift basket is breakfast oriented foods. Fill the basket with dried pancake mix, Bloody Mary mix and other morning pick me ups. You can also include meat, such as sausage in these packages. If you don't get sealed sausage, you need to make sure you have a place to store it between the time it's a wholesale gift basket and when it's ready to sell.
