You can send a hamper of chocolates with some beautiful flowers to a lucky birthday boy or girl. They will surely appreciate the sweet surprise that you have sent their way. You can simply search for online stores that put together sweet hampers. Searching online will save you a lot of time and you can also get an idea of the prices by comparing different stores online. Check for stores that are providing discounts and offers as you can get a bit more for the same amount of money. But even if the promotions are amazing, you have to check if the online store is reliable. This is where online reviews come in. Check for what previous customers have said about the service provided by the store and whether they are satisfied with the items provided. A prompt delivery is essential when you are sending a gift to somebody and you have to make sure the store is able to keep their word on the delivery time and date.

Check whether the store allows you to customise the sweet hamper and if you are able to choose the sweets that go with it. You can choose chocolates that you know the recipient will enjoy. There are also chocolate bouquets that are a novel idea; it is an edible bouquet made of all the sweets that the recipient enjoys. Not only will it look good, but it will also taste good! Bakeries have also started following this trend and you will be able to find bouquets made of donuts, cupcakes, cake pops etc. The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to sweet decadence. You can contact the store to get an idea of the level of personalisation offered. Check if you can choose a colour theme that will match the theme of the party or a favourite colour of the recipient. This will include ribbons and tissue paper in the same colour.

Go through the social media pages and the official website of the store to get an idea of the presentation provided. You can also check for client snaps that have been uploaded to online reviews that will give you a better idea of what the final product will look like. Make sure that the delivery date for the sweet hamper is confirmed by the online store. See if they provide a tracking number as well. When including chocolates in the hamper, check with the store about the expiry dates. If there are certain items that may be unavailable at a certain time, it is best to order the hamper a long time in advance so the store has time to collect all the items together without any trouble.
