It’s Black Friday. The malls are swamped and internet servers are inundated with requests and purchases from millions of customers shopping at major online retailers. Americans are on a hunt for bargains and no one will stop us. A commonly overlooked item on our holiday shopping lists are the gifts we will need to send to friends, family, colleagues and our corporate contacts for the holidays. We all have a tendency to save that type of shopping for the last minute. After all, there is no point in getting anything now, right? It is not like we are going to send a gift weeks in advance. The truth is that during Black Friday and other days prior to the holidays, many leading online retailers put gift baskets and flowers on sale. We track those promotions for you here at giftbasketdiscount.com. Not only do these items go on sale but they are discounted at significant rates, sometimes as much as 50% off. For the avid gifter, this could mean savings of hundreds of dollars. However, there is one issue you may be thinking about. How are these items delivered when bought months in advance? Shoppers have two options to circumvent this issue. First, some websites allow you to select a delivery dates months into the future. This means that you can buy a gift basket in November and just forget about it. It will be delivered in December. An alternative would be to ship the gifts to your home and use some of your savings to ship the gift when it is time.
