Send A Gourmet Basket is a gift basket shop that has been making Adelaideans feel special since 2002. They offer delectable, affordable, and personalized gourmet gift hampers for everyone.
They offer same-day delivery if you ever need emergency gift ideas.
This is especially helpful if you dearly miss someone or somehow forgot to prepare for an important occasion. We’ve all been there haven’t we?
Here, they offer gift baskets for all budgets so you won’t have to worry about breaking the bank just to send a token of appreciation to someone.
To make shopping and deciding on the perfect gift basket easier, their website has a “shop by occasion” filter. This is extra helpful for those who need to decide on the fly.
They also have a wide variety of wines and spirits to choose from in certain premium gift baskets. An added tip: they go exceptionally well with housewarming and Valentine’s gift baskets.
One downside that we noticed is their expensive delivery rates, especially in Adelaide Metro which should not cost a lot considering it should only take approximately an hour to reach all the suburbs across Adelaide.
What’s more disappointing is that some clients noticed their poor customer service, especially when their gift baskets didn’t reach the intended recipients on time or even at all.
They complained about how cold the customer service was, noting how they seem to blame the courier services for every inconvenience in delivery instead of genuinely communicating well with their clients.
Despite this, if you are on a budget and need to send a last-minute gift to someone you care about who is a foodie or a wine enthusiast, we recommend you check out Send A Gourmet Basket.

Edible Blooms is a family-owned gift shop in Australia that locally sources all of their gift items and beautifully arranges them in hampers or bouquets.
Their arrangement of items in these gift baskets is bar none the most creative out of all the shops we have seen and evaluated.
This is highly evident in their pastry gift hampers. Just check out their Celebration Donut Tower and Gourmet High Tea.
To add to this, their pastries are freshly sourced from local bakeries too!
If your intended recipient has specific dietary restrictions, Edible Blooms offer diet-specific gift baskets. You can find them using the filter on their website.
Nutrition also matters to them, which is why they declare the nutritional information for every gourmet gift basket they have available.
Edible Blooms also offer plants to include in your gift baskets. These make perfect housewarming presents!
As we have mentioned before, you can easily sift through specific categories when searching for the perfect gift basket to purchase. These include the occasion, price, specific giftee preferences, and even locations that offer free delivery.
However, some customers told us that there have been several instances when the delivery of the gift baskets was delayed. This can be a letdown or even spoil a special occasion.
In addition to this, we recommend you steer clear of their gift baskets with some of their branded chocolate items. This is because if you are a chocoholic, you will notice how their choice of chocolates can be subpar in quality.
Nevertheless, if you need a gift sent to someone in advance and their love language is gifts, these gift baskets from Edible Blooms will surely put a smile on their faces.

BoxSAlicious is another gourmet gift basket shop that locally sources their gift items. They have been around since 2005, offering high-quality wines and food.
Our experience navigating through their website is delightful and hassle-free. This is because they have four major filters in choosing the perfect gift basket for your loved one.
They have “choose by occasion,” “choose by recipient,” “choose by price,” and “bestsellers.” This gave us the sense that they truly care about aiding each customer to find a suitable gift in the quickest way.
On top of this, we love how they let you pay through installments using Afterpay.
We can’t forget to point out how top-notch their presentation is for all their gift baskets. And speaking on behalf of their clients, what you see is what you get for their gift hampers.
One downside, however, is that they do not have a physical store. This can be a letdown if you want to make a personal visit to make sure everything is perfectly set for the gift basket you purchased before delivery.
In addition to this, their baskets have an expensive price point. The most affordable basket is priced at AUD 60.
On top of this, smaller and cheaper baskets are poorly packaged for shipping and delivery.
Customers noted that they reuse old boxes. This gave the customers the sense that they need to choose more expensive baskets for better packaging.
However, if you plan on splurging for this special someone’s gift, BoxSAlicious is worth considering because of their amazing arrangement and the purposeful variation of gift items in their baskets.
4. Carews Florist

Carews Florist is, according to their name, a flower store that also happens to sell wonderfully arranged gift baskets.
Upon browsing their basket offerings, we were reminded how well flowers go with food and wine. It just makes it extra special and festive.
Their flowers are also fresh and stunning. These make for great romantic gifts and perfect wedding gifts.
If you plan on going big for your gift basket, worry not because they have premium and deluxe options for every gift basket they have. However, it would be better if they also have a picture to visualize how the basket will look if ever you opt for this upgrade.
Same-day delivery is also possible for all locations across Adelaide.
On top of this, you will be attended to by professional customer service if ever you have any concerns with the delivery process of your gift basket.
However, Carews Florist’s gift baskets have an expensive price point. This can be a dealbreaker for those who are on a budget.
If you plan on visiting their physical store, you will also find it overwhelming to explore. You are not alone because a few clients also mentioned to us that they feel like navigating through their store can be a chore.
In addition to this, you may also find that they have limited occasion-specific gift baskets. It looks like their gift baskets are made to be suitable for all occasions.
On the bright side, this would mean that it would take you less time to pick the perfect gift basket you are looking for.
We recommend Carews Florist if you are looking for a gift basket that is elegantly paired with healthy foods and fresh flowers.
5. A Little Luxury
Products: Gift hampers, wine gifts, bath & body

A Little Luxury is a gift hamper service established in 2006. Since then, they have strived to create “unique and unforgettable gifts in just a few clicks.”
Their basket arrangement is bar none the most exquisite and elegant out of all the gift hamper services we assessed.
Their customization options are virtually endless because you can swap out every gift item that is included in the gift basket you plan on purchasing.
They also make it easier to see which basket sells fast because they indicate which ones are the bestsellers.
A Little Luxury also offers payment via installment so you don’t have to worry about shelling out a considerable sum of money upfront.
Their personalization options are also limitless because where else can you add a personalized message printed on the ribbon it comes with and even an engraved plaque on the wooden box it comes with?
They also have multiple delivery options which can expedite the delivery process of your gift basket.
However, their main office is located outside of Adelaide, as their main assembly warehouse and headquarters are in New South Wales.
Fortunately, they are prompt in arranging the delivery of gift baskets for release because a lot of their clients are always delighted to see their gift baskets delivered earlier than expected to their intended recipients.
Another downside that we found is that they have no price filters for their gift baskets. This can be a chore if your main concern is your budget.
Nevertheless, A Little Luxury is an understatement of a name because they go the extra mile in making special gift baskets that are luxurious and highly personalized.
