Back Talk & Testimonials


Good afternoon,  My apologies for not writing this sooner!

Thank you on behalf of the Management and Staff of Alberta One-Call for the absolutely beautiful and tasteful (don’t forget tasty too) boxes we gave out for our annual anniversary ceremony last Friday!!! Everyone was very happy to have these boxes sitting next to them on their desks in fact a lot of them have kept the empty boxes!  They just tied the ribbon around them again and are using them as a spring/Easter decoration….

Thank you again -  GJ 04/12/17

We just received an adorable baby gift from our friends that was made from your company.  I wanted to express how impressed I was that you wrapped up a special little gift for my three year old so that he was feeling included in this very special time.  He was so excited to get something just for him!   Verity D.  01/20/17

We just discovered your company.  We needed to send somethingto our friends who just lost a loved one. It was the perfect thingfor them.  Treats and nibbles for all their family and drop in guests.  I'm saying "good-bye to flowers". This was so much more appreciated by every member in that family.  - Jackson, Oct 2015

*******

I'm away in Japan working right now and it meant so much to me when my family called all excited about the gift you had put together for them.  They were thrilled. To be honest, I was a bit nervous as I had not ordered from you before and had a not-so-good experience before.  The person I dealt with was so helpful.  It was just so easy.  Many thanks!  - Jonathan, Sept 2015

Jack & I received a congratulatory gift basket when our son was born from his company. It was adorable. I loved all the little what-knots that you included, especially the incredible Bum ointment. Wow! What a great product. I'll be sending one of those gifts to my friend who is due next month. She'll love it. - Olivia

*******

Ola from Mexico! I forgot to thank you the first time I ordered one of your gift baskets for my family in Canada. This time I want to let you know that everyone loved the gift for the second time around. You had something for everyone...even a little spicy salsa! Gracious, Julio, Mexico DF 2011.

When we learned of Kates' illness we wanted to do something to lift her spirits. Your suggestions were the perfect solution. It really did help to sooth her and put her in a different head space. We wanted to say thanks. Marv & Karen V 2011

When my dad called us last night, he was beside himself. He was so impressed with the gift basket that we ordered for his birthday, that I just had to send a note to let you know. He went on and on about all of the lovely treats that were included. He said it was brilliant. He loved every single item that was in it. I have to be honest, my family was a little worried, because we had never ordered a gift like this before and being in the UK we were concerned about what it would be like. He asked me to use your services again for his next birthday. Said he could hardly wait to see what would come next! The McFadden Family

Chelsea was so down and sad after having to spend a few days in the hospital and miss her friends birthday party. All that changed when she got the gift you sent to her!? Her little face lit right up when the nurse brought in your colorful gift! She was so excited to try out all the fun activities you included in the gift. The princess tiara was a huge hit! What a way to brighten up a five year old. Erin C.

*******

My best friend passed on just a few weeks ago and I ordered a sympathy gift to send to her families home from your company. I wanted something other than flowers that wilt and die, just as my dear friend did. I wanted something that her family could feel good about. Something to celebrate and remember all the joy and love she so easily gave to all she knew. Her family was ever so grateful and really appreciated the fact that they could open the gift and let everyone share it. Thanks so much for the great ideas, suggestions and the way the gift was beautifully put together. Chae-Lynn

*******

We ordered a get well gift for a friend who was recovering in the hospital. When they received your thoughtful well planned out gift...well this made their day. They loved the goodies to help pass the time. Great Stuff - Lois

*******

I wanted to send a quick note to say "Thank You" for the second time around. I have just delivered my second baby and received from my employer a second baby gift from your company. I am delighted once again to receive it. I love all the goodies you have included. The books are wonderful. My first child has been unable to part with the cuddly blanket you included and I have to say that it is looking rather old and tattered. She has seen the new one you included for her new baby brother. Now she wants a new one too! I will be calling you soon to see if this is possible. Thanks again! Amanda

*******

Aloha from the Big Island! Just a quick note to let you know that our family called us after receiving their gift to say how thrilled they were with it. They had so much fun trying all the goodies. It was good piece of mind for us to know that you did everything you said you would. It is hard being away from your family during the holiday season but this really helped! Mahalo 2009

*******

I just wanted to say how impressed I am that my gift basket was delivered so promptly. I got a call from my grandmother last night saying that it had arrived. She couldn't remember everything that was in it 'cause it was so full. Thank you for once again going above and beyond what is expected. Kim 2009

*******

If you could have seen the look on Morgans face when she got her gift at the hospital, it was great. I just happened to be there when the nurses brought it in to her. She just lit up. She had so much fun with all the girlie things and the treats too! What a perfect idea for a five year old. Thanks again for all the help. Trish

*******

I wanted to let you know how helpful you were with the ideas and preparing the gift for my husband. As you discovered, he is a little hard to please! You had some great suggestions and when the gift arrived, I knew it was a winner! You have made his stay at the hospital so much easier. Thank you very very much. B. Morgan

Talk about saving the bacon! Well as you well know, my boss left it to the last second to make up his mind. Finally he gives me the go ahead to call and place our order with you. Only two days left before Christmas and I am thinking there is no way you will be able to get this done. You came through!

I have been away in the Middle East working now for some time and I really miss home. It is so hard during the holiday season to be away from your family and I really wanted to send something special to them to let them know know much I love and miss them.? Your gift was so well received! My mom cried when she got it. Your little extra touches were perfect. Thank you very much. Penny R.

Your website has made my task a lot easier!

I immediately went to your website and liked what I saw. Thank you so much for all of your help. You have made our companies gift giving so easy.

You guys did it again! Thank you for another year of fantastic service. All of our staff and clients loved the gifts you prepared for them.

Merry Christmas to all. Michael

I sent a cookie basket for my grandfather's 90th birthday in June. It is now late September and they are still talking about it. The cookies tasted great and the canister is on display in the kitchen. Thank you.

I wanted to thank you so much for the basket you did up for our friend Lori. She had only wonderful things to say about it & was not sure which of the super treats she would break into first! I will definitely make sure that you are high on my list for "repeat visiting!" The others involved at our company are very impressed! I have shared your website with all! - Pat

Dear Creator of Baskets,
I recently ordered a basket from you for a delivery in Calgary. We live in Niagara Falls Ontario and our brother-in-law passed away in Calgary. We did not wish to send flowers and were really unsure as to what options would be available to us. We tried on the internet to find an appropriate basket or gift to send to the family. It took several hours of surfing florists, and fruit basket options before we decided to check out Calgary business. We are so glad we did! Once we found your website , we knew that you provided the service we were looking for. We received a call from our sister Yvonne today. She was just "blown away" by the generous basket you delivered to her. It was definitely not your run of the mill fruit basket. She and her children are very pleased with the collection of treats, snacks, teas and other items you provided. My husband and I are ever so grateful that we were able to send such a useful and yet caring package to the family at this sad time. We really appreciate the time and effort you took to create the basket. Thank you also for the prompt delivery. We will definitely look to you for future occasions. You certainly give me confidence in ordering through the internet. Sincerely Peter and Jennifer B.

Hi – just wanted to let you folks know that the delivery of the ‘Video Nite’ gift basket to Blackfoot Cycle on Friday was my most successful birthday gift YET. He loved everything in the basket – a rarity for a picky kind of guy. Not only did my friend love the basket, apparently there were enough goodies to share with the entire Service Department. Of course, they are all wondering who ‘Fluffy’ is …. Thanks again for the great service, and obviously – you know how to pick your snacks! I will undoubtably use your service again. Anne

Please send accolades on the excellent service to all involved - definitely a service I'll recommend to others.

Recently, we had the miss-fortune to injure a player during the course of one of our company-sponsored golf tournaments. The player was one of our best customers. You can forget about a large cash settlement in an instance like this. We sent a gift basket…or more specifically, an army helmet cleverly stocked with all the ammunition required by any golfer who is forced to golf with our staff members! The helmet provided the head protection, the water pistol to fend off the attackers, toy grenades to ward off the enemy, binoculars to spot them, and a radio to call for help, just in case. Our customer was thrilled and still keeps gun, grenade, helmet & other paraphernalia from the gift on her desk. She’s still laughing and she is still sending us business.

*******

This is not the first time that creativity, ingenuity & excellent customer service ethics of A Basket Case have helped us in recognizing special events for our clients.

I know I don’t need to shop around. I just call Terry. Many thanks for your excellent service. We are so glad we discovered you! - S. Meikle, Gibson Petroleum –
