Sympathy Hampers


Being by the side of those who have been bereaved can be a huge comfort. However, there are times when you just can’t be with them because of other commitments.

At Gourmet Basket, we offer some of the most creative sympathy baskets. We also provide timely delivery services to various places in Australia including Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne.

Tips for Selecting the Best Gift Hamper

Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing a gift hamper.

Spend what you have

There are a variety of gift hampers and they all fall in different price ranges. It is prudent for you to pick a hamper that falls in your prefered budget range. Of course, you are still assured of good quality whether you choose a hamper that falls below $100 or the more luxurious options that are over the $200 price range.

Think of your recipient

A gift hamper that can impress your mum may not necessarily be ideal for your sister or aunt. It is advisable that you reflect on the likes and dislikes of the particular person you wish to treat and then choose a gift hamper that contains items that are most likely to resonate. If you do not know your recipient that well, you can choose a neutral hamper. Such hampers contain a little of everything which makes it possible for your recipient to get something they like.

The supplier

Whether you get top quality sympathy hampers or not depends on the supplier that you pick. To avoid some common pitfalls, it is wise to order your gift hampers from a supplier that has been operating for a relatively long period. The supplier should also be reputable and easy to communicate with.


The occasion should inform the type of gift hamper you select. Remember there are sympathy hampers, Easter hampers, new baby hampers among many others.
