Pros / You can buy these baskets directly from Amazon.com.
Cons / You can’t add extras to your basket order.
Verdict / The gift baskets from this company are more sweets than anything else. If you’re looking for snacks to munch on this is an average basket, but the food isn’t as high quality as other baskets we tested.
We tested the gourmet Holiday Gift Basket from Broadway Basketeers, but the lack of fruit and savory food made this basket seem paltry in comparison with the other gift baskets we tested. If you’re looking for the cheapest basket we tested, this is it – but it’s also low in our rankings for a reason.
The food items in this basket were mostly small sweet treats and salty snacks. This basket lacked fruit, cheese and the more substantial crackers that other baskets offered. When we tallied up the results of our 20-person taste testing panel, this basket ranked less than 2.5/4 – the second lowest score of the 11 baskets we tested. That resulted in this basket receiving a D+ grade for taste.
Broadway Basketeers has over 75 different baskets that you can buy from its website or from Amazon.com directly. However, this company doesn’t offer any vegan options like Harry & David.
There were no problems with shipping when we received this box. The box was undamaged and the basket was in good condition inside. This basket was one of the most secure because it was shipped in gel packs and bubble wrap.
You can purchase baskets directly from the Broadway Basketeers website using a credit card or through PayPal. You can also purchase baskets through Amazon, which lets you use some other payment methods.
This company offers overnight shipping, and you can also choose from ground and express shipping. This company also ships its baskets to APO/FPO addresses, so you can choose this basket if you want to send a gift to members of the military overseas. You can’t ship these baskets internationally, though, like the best gift baskets we tested.
Unfortunately, there are no add-ons with these baskets. This means you can’t add a card, chocolates or a stuffed animal to your order. We rated companies that have add-ons, such as Design It Yourself, higher than others because we feel add-ons are a good chance to personalize a gift basket.
The Holiday Gift Basket from Broadway Basketeers is a cheap selection of sweet and savory snacks, but the flavor and quality of the food didn’t match up to the other baskets we taste tested. If you’re going to spend money on a gift basket, we recommend purchasing from Harry & David because its baskets have better variety and much better flavor.
