"I can't thank you enough for making such a wonderful, creative gift basket for my niece, including in it everything I had asked for and more! As I mentioned to you, I was going to send the old traditional FTD flowers and never get to see what my niece would receive. You made this a very enjoyable shopping experience and the photos you sent me were wonderful."
My niece called when she received the basket and I asked was there anything she especially liked - she replied "everything in the basket was special!"
Selecting gifts can sometimes be a cumbersome and trying task - thanx again for making this such a great experience!"

"About a year ago, I was mandated to find a supplier to provide our institution with member appreciation gifts. Applegate's Gift Basket turned out to be the perfect solution for us. Jana and her staff make wonderful "baskets", working in some of our corporate items and colors. The staff are full of great ideas and suggestions and our orders are always ready on time. Even when we need something "last minute" or for a very special occasion, they are more than willing to do their very best to accommodate us. Our members who receive these appreciation gifts are always very pleased with them. Applegate's helps make our institution look good."

I've been away for a bit and when I arrived home and found your card in the mail it was just simply the perfect end to a job well done.
If I were a woman of means and had more relatives that I liked, I'd send a basket a month (hahhahahaha) and will highly recommend your service which by the way is outstanding to anyone who'll listen. You've thought of everything and I take my hat off to any small business who is as thorough and is without question a class act.
I can't thank you enough for your help, the boys were tickled and it was the first present "Like That" they had ever received and it's been my experience that firsts are good. Please extend my thanks to all of Santa's Helpers who contributed to our little cause.
All the best for a Happy and Prosperous New Year"

Well, you certainly managed to hit a home run for me. (Here are the recipient's words):
".....the flowers are so gorgeous. I wish you could see them. I am already heady with their scent. Thank-you, as well, for the beautiful thought that accompanied them. They are just a beautiful spring mix (pinks and purples) and suit this green ceramic vase that used to belong to my grandmother.
Thanks so very much and you will be hearing from me again."
"You've heard it a million times, and here comes one more......
What service !! In this high speed world, it's nice to know there are people out there who remember to look back.
As a customer, it is great to find an awesome selection of products and the gift of personalization. We feel confident we've sent the right basket to our loved one.
We get the reward of the 'thank you' phone call from our loved one, once the basket is received. And with a product from Applegate's they are sure to rave about the contents, presentation, and personal touches.
Applegate's gets paid, we get the thank-yous.
Then the touch of class comes; the reminder that it's not the receiver of a gift that is special, it is also the sender.
I just received your personal note, with 'construction' photos. All those feelings came rushing back; my excitement for Mom's surprise, the anticipation of her receiving it, the ecstatic call upon receipt, and the
warm n' fuzzies the day after.
You are a very special group of people."

(Thank you, Cindy. Some days we feel like our efforts don't make any difference to anybody. Thank you for the reminder that people still like to be treated with care, respect, and affection.)"
Just a couple of things -
First thank you so much for the pictures of the Diaper Cake it arrived yesterday in the mail.
Secondly I have to tell you Lisa was thrilled. She had left me such a wonderful phone message and then I saw her yesterday and she was still very excited about the Diaper Cake.
She hasn't even opened it yet because she doesn't want to spoil it and she has taken many pictures of it herself. I told her open it and enjoy it but she just hates to take it apart. So again thanks for the beautiful job and the awesome service! Have a great day."
— Sharon K.
(Thanks Sharon. The Diaper Cakes are just so cute! We use disposable diapers to make the "cake" and then decorate with gift items, ribbons and flowers. Makes a fabulous shower gift!)
"Thank you for the awesome gift baskets that we purchased for our parents for Christmas.
I appreciate the thoughtfulness that went into the gift baskets. Our parents were absolutely delighted to receive them and this is the only way to go!
Staff was very accommodating and one of the few shops that offered great customer service, somewhat of a rarity in today's world."
— Margie S.
(We appreciate your graciousness and the time you took to drop us this note. Our mandate is to promise less and deliver more...glad we succeeded! Best wishes!)
"Thank you everyone at Applegate's. This year's baskets were the best!
In the five years of partnering with Applegate's for our Christmas baskets, you have been so wonderful to us. Extremely helpful with our selections, efficient in making and ensuring we have them on time and on budget for Christmas."
