Where do you usually buy your Hampers?

With rising costs and increased learning needs, financing our children's education is no longer a simple walk in the park. Discuss with other parents about how they are managing their finances to cope with their expenses.

Where do you usually buy your Hampers?

As above?

Recently, my friends are lining up and responding to Govt call to give birth. I was looking around for hampers, then i ordered this hamper from EYS. Here is the picture that my good friend took.

Quite a good deal.

Noel provides good hamper choices thou more on the high side..

EU YAN SENG is an excellent choice.

Personally prefer to give things which I like or practical things.

Ya i agreed with both of your that Noel will be priority and Eu Yan Sang will be an excellent choice.

My budget for a hamper usually is about $100.

What is your comfortable budget in sending a hamper?
Any other providers worth mentioning?

I received some from Hock Hwa. Not bad. I prefer hampers from tonic shops rather than Noel or some other hamper provider coz the latter usually puts in almost expired useless items to make up the bulk. I don't drink wine either.

ya man! So unethical to put nearly-expired products in the hampers. Can to share some names so that customers like us can avoid at all cost?

i think the basket is useless to me after tearing down the hamper and i thought may be having it under a gift box is much more appropriate. Do you agree?

Can we "cash convert" the baskets back to the providers? Haha :D

thought those flower cum Brands hampers are from HR these days? Any florist at the hospital will hv that...

For relatives or close friends, I'd only bought toddler clothes set from Club 21, Petit Bateau, Burberrys Kids, BB Gap, Du Pareil or the like...For colleagues, just angpow.

Not into TCM hampers cos I dunno if certain tonics are suitable for some post-partum moms.
