Barber's Gift Baskets is a woman owned company brought to life by Laura Barber in 2006. It was created by combining the love of creating with the passion of helping others. Laura felt there was a demand for great customer service while providing a specialized gifting service and strives in delivering this each and every time with past, current and new customers.
Having dual nationalities, American and Brazilian, and having grown up in both the U.S. and Brazil, have enabled a greater understanding of what people need and want as well as how different cultures have similarities and differences in their gifting needs.
Seeing how her mother's own crafting business took off in Brazil in the 80's, Laura was able to observe what customers were looking for in a gift or decoration for their own homes she was able to transfer this experience to her own business at Barber's Gift Baskets.
There's always that saying 'need and demand' but for Laura at Barber's Gift Baskets it's not just about that but also listening to what that need may be from customers, making their purchasing experience an easy and pleasant one. There's nothing more gratifying than hearing in one's voice the happiness and relief they have after he/she has just purchased a gift that will be delivering a special emotion whether its love, happiness, thoughtfulness, sympathy. Not to mention the ease of placing the order. To some it may be that she has given them suggestions when they weren't sure what they wanted exactly while for others it's just the quick placement of their order.
Her success is highly due to taking the time to listen to what the client is requesting, never making them feel rushed and delivering a sophisticated gift.
Laura attends The National Gift Basket Convention and The ASI Promotional Products Convention to stay current with new ideas on marketing strategies, gifting ideas and various other areas in the gifting industry. These venues help in selecting new items annually for the gift basket designs and gifting options.
She has selectively chosen the gourmet items to enable a tasty pallet for each recipient. Various local wholesalers and national wholesalers supply the treats and an assortment of sweets, salty and mixed items are highlighted in each gourmet food basket. Fruit baskets have fruit chosen hours prior to wrapping in baskets and are great options. Barber's Gift Baskets has a wine and beer license enabling wonderful choices to be added to various gift basket designs.
Ultimately it's the love of designing with new creations and options that makes Laura's baskets stand out from the rest. Located in Wellington, Florida, Barber's Gift Baskets delivers locally and ships throughout the U.S.
Laura resides in Wellington, Florida with her family and volunteers with the Western Palm Beach Relay for Life. She participates in various local networking groups such as West Palm Beach NPI, Women's Mastermind Alliance, Wellington Chamber of Commerce and Palm Beach Brazilian Professionals Network.
