Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) March 14, 2009 -- As American's weather the current downswing in the economy, Country Gourmet Gift Baskets has seen an upswing in the sales of sympathy gift baskets.
"Friends and family want to show that they care, and one of the easiest and most effective ways to do this is with a gift basket. It is a warm and caring gesture to people who have been effected by the economy," says Country Gourmet Gift Baskets founder, Renee Boivin.
People agree that it can be hard to decide how to show that your thoughts are with loved ones, friends and neighbors. A gift basket is one way of providing a thoughtful gesture that is both useful and well received in times of duress and stress.
To help people who would like to send sympathy gift baskets, Country Gourmet Gift Baskets has provided free shipping on all of their gift baskets and extended their line of baskets that are available under their sympathy category.
Selecting a sympathy gift basket can be a challenge. It helps to have a good selection to choose from and have at the very least, a few fairly cheerful baskets in the selection.
Coffee gift baskets, gourmet chocolate gift baskets and relaxation gift baskets can be a part of the selection process. Wine gift baskets do not normally fall into the sympathy selection, as wine tends to portray more of a celebratory basket.
