You might think that all there is to a gift basket is packing a bunch of goodies into a basket, wrapping it up and tying a bow on... but it’s really not that simple! We work very hard to make sure that our gift baskets have the best quality items, that they look amazing, and even that the container itself is perfect. Right now at Nutcracker Sweet the photo shoot for our 2016 catalogue is taking place! Can you believe that it's only June and already we're thinking about concepts for next year's catalogue?! Even better, we're thinking about Christmas in the summer

Here at Nutcracker Sweet, we’re all about the food. And sure, everyone loves gourmet and savoury foods, but we know that most people have a sweet tooth—and most of us here do as well! At Nutcracker we take the “Candy Holidays” pretty seriously. Each candy holiday is about a different one of everyone’s favourite sweet treats! Check out our twitter account for updates on which candy holiday it is next—because you know that if there’s a holiday that involves candy, you don’t want to miss out! So that you know, these are some of our favourite candy holidays and their dates:

Administrative Professionals' Day is a huge up and coming holiday in the corporate world!

And, seeing as business and corporate gifts are our area of expertise, we really know the perfect gifts to get for your receptionists, assistants, secretaries, custodians, and other administrative staff.

Nutcracker Sweet Gift Baskets contain only the highest quality products including brand names such as Lindt, Godiva, Wildly Delicious, Charlie & Sam’s and more. It’s not always easy choosing what to put in our baskets with such an array of great items, and it’s not a decision we take lightly. We pride ourselves in both the quality of the food and the containers/baskets that we choose. Many of the items are often of higher price points, yet we aim to provide reasonably priced baskets for all occasions.

Buying a gift for someone with a new baby can be at times challenging. Sometimes you may not know the person that well, or you don’t know what they actually want.  As well, if you haven't had a baby around the house for some time, you don’t know what’s “in” and what people can use when they have a newborn! Nutcracker Sweet has the perfect solution to your problem—baby gift baskets.

For over thirty years, Nutcracker Sweet has been there through it all—Halloween, Christmas, New Years, Birthdays, Sympathies, Weddings, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day—you name it, we’ve provided gift baskets for every holiday and occasion! Easter is no different! We know that sometimes the excitement of Christmas overpowers Easter, but we’re here to change that!

As you can imagine, Passover season at Nutcracker Sweet can get pretty hectic. This year, Passover and Easter are at the same time so we are selling lots of different types of baskets to our customers!  Often at times people wonder how we’re able to provide such an extensive variety of beautiful gifts for both holidays—to which we answer that all of our customers are important to us, and our main goal is to fulfill the gifting needs of every single customer. When you look at it that way, having both Passover and Easter gift baskets seems like the normal thing to do! 

Now that Valentine’s Day is done we often get asked if we have free time. Being one of the largest gift basket companies in the country there is no rest! We are constantly looking for new containers and food items for upcoming holidays and next year’s catalogue. We have a goal each year to be better than the last. Gift baskets are our life, and we spend every day brainstorming new ideas, sourcing new products and being as creative as possible.
