Letter from Elaine and Randi


Dear Customers,

We are pleased to announce that we are merging Geri’s Gift Baskets with Nutcracker Sweet, a leader in the gift baskets industry, who has been providing innovative, stylish and contemporary gifts for over 35 years.

What does this mean for you?

It will be business as usual, only now we have new resources and capabilities to continue delivering the finest gift baskets and trays for all occasions. Randi and Elaine will continue to support all of your gift giving needs and can be reached directly at 416.445.5504 or online at torontobaskets.com

Our story continues…

Geri’s Gift Baskets started over 41 years ago. We were one of the first gift basket businesses in Toronto. As a mother daughter business, we built Geri’s Gift Baskets from the ground up with a passion for gift giving based on respect and trust which transferred into our relationships with our customers.  Joining forces with Nutcracker, takes us into the next chapter in our storybook.

What does this mean for us?

 We look forward to joining the Nutcracker team working together to bring you the best gift baskets and  trays to meet your every need. Our lease at 1875 Leslie St. has ended so we will be joining the Nutcracker team at 3717 Chesswood Drive and will continue to provide the exceptional quality and care you have come to expect from us.

 Our store at 1875 Leslie St. Unit 5 will remain open until mid November, exclusively for the sale of our inventory.  We have many beautiful items; giftware, baby items, gift wrap, ribbons, bows and tissue, available at greatly reduced prices. We are open Monday to Saturday 10-4.  Shop early for the best selection.

 Thank you!

We want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for putting your trust in us over the last 41 years and bringing us to where we are today. We feel truly grateful to have made so many wonderful friends and colleagues and will continue through Nutcracker to meet your gift giving needs.


Sincerest gratitude,

Elaine and Randi

    I visited this place for the first time. The staff was very helpful and made my visit very pleasant. I did not purchase a lot and i purchased standalone items but still they put effort to make it more presentable. Definitely recommend.

    Nutcracker sweet is my favourite place to get my baskets. Their selection is always with great quality and I can trust that the product will get to its destination in a timely manner. Their staff has always been friendly, kind and helpful even when I make trips to the store. Their cheeseboard is one of my favourites, I purchased it for some friends and had to get myself one too and it was amazing.
