Holiday Orders - Helpful Info
To those who are visiting us for the first time - WELCOME! And to our returning clients - WELCOME BACK! We're delighted you're here!
We have a lot of new holiday gift options & goodies to share with you in 2023! Orders can be placed any time and will be automatically placed in the queue according to your dates selected.
Here are some answers to FAQ during the holidays:
As Victoria's most premiere and original gift basket company (est. 1989) we process extremely high volumes during the holidays. Therefore, we are unable to create custom baskets during December.
We ask that you select from our holiday fare. If you wish for non holiday fare, please visit our gift box company: Vancouver Island Gift Basket Co.
Orders placed for non holiday GIGIs Gift Baskets will be refunded or held for delivery after Jan. 8th, 2024. Thank you for your understanding.
