Top 10 Best Selling Products to Include in Gift Hampers

Mar 16, 2008
It's not always easy getting the them of a gift hamper just right. As a business owner who has been creating and selling gift hampers and gift baskets successfully online for the past 7 and a bit years we've had a few disasters along the way with stock laying around gathering dust wondering what on earth possessed us to think a certain product would sell! We know the importance of maximising your profits and getting the overall theme right so your product will fly out the door! I've put together my Top 10 Best Sellers which are guaranteed to sell -

1. Cookies, Muffins & Biscuits - peferably all in together! Always a popular choice, especially as they suit most occasions from new baby to get well, from thank you to happy birthday.

2. Old Fashioned Sweets - retro sweets, tuck shop sweets, nostalgic sweets, all hugely popular for both children and adults, especially adults! There's nothing quite like a trip down memory lane... remember flying saucers, black jacks, chewy tobacco, white mice?

3. Very Cute Baby Items - popular both for family and friends but also if you want to build your corporate market base. Most popular collections will include an item of clothing, preferable 3-6 months, not newborn sizes, most people love the idea of the baby being able to grow into the outfit.

4. Cheese and Wine (and biscuits) - a classic gift collection, again suitable for lots of different occasions, corporate thank you, family birthday, we even sell it for a new baby occasion!

5. Italian food - especially if it's authentic, a great gift collection for lots of different occasions and suitable for both the personal and corporate gift market.

6. Helium Balloons - these are great to add in with the gift hamper as it's the perfect way to add a message and set the theme of your collection and also adds great value to maximise your profits.

7. Beers - may not be possible if you do not have an alcohol license but definitely worth making the effort to become licensed as this is a very popular choice for men.

8. Champagne - again you will need an alcohol license but it's always well worth featuring your gift collection with the option to add champagne.

9. Games and Puzzles - these are well worth including in a collection of get well gift baskets. Lets the recipient know that a lot of thought has gone into their gift.

10. Gardening Items - a fork and trowel is great, especially gardening seeds, gardener's hand cream, team it with tea and biscuits, popular for both men and women.

That's our top ten which are all big key words too so should work well for you on the search engines as well as converting your visitors into paying customers.
