Holiday Happy Hour Gift Box

How did your career begin?

My career began in early childhood education, but my creative side was always there. I always made gift baskets and scrapbooks which I gave as gifts.

One time I made a gift basket for my sister. She asked me if I had thought of marketing them. At that moment I realized I wanted to pursue that path. I started to take courses and practiced what I had learned until I was ready and confident to start putting my work out there.

The rest is history.

How are you preparing for the holidays?

I have been gearing up for the holidays since the summer. I have been designing new gifts as well as reaching out to previous clients and doing presentations to attract new clients to show what The New York Gifting Company can do for them.

It is not too early to start thinking about your holiday gifting needs. I already have some orders for the holiday season.

Tell us about your luxury gift boxes.

Luxury is all about the products that you use as well as the presentation. It is so important how the items are arranged, and they all fit together in color and that they fit the theme.

The embellishments such as ribbons, logo and designs can make a gift look luxurious.

Can gifts be customized?

Most gifts can be customized for sure.

Rave Reviews from clients

We brought our 3 daughters to NYC for a girls’ graduation celebration. I looked all over the internet months in advance to find a basket delivery to have waiting at the hotel when we arrived. And then I found Elaine. Elaine put together individualized welcome baskets for the girls and they were waiting at the hotel when we checked in. The girls were SO jazzed. Working with Elaine was wonderful. She asked questions to help her make choices the girls would love. If you ever need a personal touch with a basket. Elaine’s the best!

I wanted a gift basket for a client of mine who recently relocated from Spain. I had helped with her apartment search and knew she didn’t have much of anything in terms of essentials for her kitchen. After speaking with Elaine, she created a most thoughtful and detailed gift basket that not only welcomed the client to the city but incorporated foods, utensils and a cutting board of Spanish influence. The client was so touched by the length of detail that went into creating the basket. She is forever happy and grateful for the gift. I will no doubt be using The New York Gifting Companies services for all of my relocation clients. Thanks again Elaine.

What a delightful gift!! I purchased a client gift basket, and they were thrilled. Very professional and you can see a great deal of care and thought is put into the creation of these baskets. Thank you for your creativity.

I loved the gift basket I got. Not only was it full of great stuff but it was beautifully presented in a high heeled shoe! If you are looking for a really original gift for friend, family even a co-worker these is such a good idea., you can even customize your own basket!


Here’s to you gift box

Tell us about The Executive Wine Box.

The Executive Wine Box contains an upscale Cabernet Sauvignon. It is paired with cheddar cheese spread, garlic, mustard, fig jam, olive oil and sea salt crackers, a mini dish, spoon and spreader along with sweet, dried apricots and pistachios.

What will people notice when working with you Elaine?

When people work with me, they will notice that I care and listen to what they want and need. I will not send anything out that is not exactly what the customer ordered. It also has to pass my final inspection before it is delivered or shipped.

Any recommendations for BFF’s?

If I were to send any gifts to my BFF from my website, they would have to be The Grande Italian or The Luxurious Chef.

My BFF is someone who loves to cook and is also an awesome cook.

The Grande Italian is a gorgeous collection for the perfect Italian dinner. It is filled with gourmet pleasures from Italy such as an Italian Chianti, tomato basil breadsticks, spicy olives, summer sausage, a stainless steel garlic press and fresh garlic.

The Luxurious Chef is the perfect gift for someone who loves to cook as well. 

It comes completes with some kitchen staples such as Tuscan olive oil along with Italian salami, organic pasta and pasta sauce, olives, Jalapeno Monterey Jack Cheese, olive tapenade, organic rosemary almonds, a mini dish and a sturdy wooden spoon.

What makes your company so special?

The New York Gifting Company is special because we appeal to a single consumer as well as to the corporate client. We give each client personal attention whether you are an individual or a corporate client.

Our company offers gifts on our website that can be ordered with a few clicks and your gift is on its way. We also do customization when you want to design your own gifts.

I always say, “If you dream it, we create it!”
