“Once in awhile, right in the middle of ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.” J. B. Jeffrey
Summertime means beautiful weather, sunny skies and, the most popular wedding season of the year. With elegant sunsets, and tantalizing views bursting with stunning plants it’s no wonder so many couples want to tie the knot this time of year. With love in the air, we just had to share one of our favorite romantic stories with you. Take a moment and let it inspire you to be more romantic, a little spontaneous, and encourage you to show your nearest and dearest (and maybe far away) sweetheart how much you love and cherish them!
Picture a couple: 5 years ago and oceans apart. He was from the US, She was from St. Petersburg, and their love just didn’t care. He was desperate to make the 6-month anniversary of their first meeting special, and wanted to send gifts to Russia, but the distance was proving to be something made to ruin surprises. Long nights of browsing the internet for the perfect way to show his love and devotion ended in nothing but frustration. He was constantly warned away: gifts would be shipped internationally, and the delivery date something that could only be guessed at. As you know, for anniversaries the day after just doesn’t cut it.
But his persistence paid off, though he couldn’t have known at the time. Uncertain and frustrated he placed a call to the GBO customer service team. Touched by his determination and love, this order quickly became personal not only for him, but our employees. His first order was simple: a delicate long-stemmed red rose with mouthwatering chocolates, something sweet and elegant for the woman who captured his heart. By the time he called it was already Sunday morning for his love, and the surprise had to arrive Monday, or not at all. With a little luck, a lot of hard work, and a devoted GBO team, his gift made it to his love on time and absolutely overwhelmed her with joy.
Barely a month passed before he decided he had to surprise her again, and then again, and again. Each and every time he came back to the company that had made the impossible not only possible, but easy. The gifts he chose were personal and thoughtful. Sometimes he sent sweet fruit baskets to Russia, just to make her smile. Another time, a handmade shawl to keep her warm while she was away from his arms. He spared no effort working with GBO to track down custom and unique gifts that were near (but not quite) impossible to find in Russia. Truly their love was a fairy tale. He showered her with designer clothes, rare books, a Blackberry, and even an iPhone 5 to help them keep in touch.
Other times the gifts were more interactive. He treated her to days at the spa, her favorite restaurants, even the opera, and even made sure a limousine was there to pick her up and drop her off each and every time. Each gift came with his unique signature, a bouquet of red roses with a stunning white rose in the middle, a symbol of hope that theirs was a love that could stand up to any test.
He didn’t stop there! He knew that if he was to be lucky enough to marry this woman, he had to win over not only her, but also her family. Her mother (in Armavir) and her grandmother (in Tolyatti) were also spoiled by his generosity. Like a true gentleman, he spared no expense sending them both flowers for all occasions, and sometimes simply as a reminder of his affection. Finally, years later, the time was right, and he was ready to ask them if he could marry the wonderful woman they had both raised. He set the mood by treating them to a fancy dinner at the best local restaurant, again complete with a limousine to take the women to and from. He also wrote a beautiful letter to ask them both if they would give their permission to let him make the woman of his dreams his wife.
Of course, they said yes!
Five years of a fairy tale romance, the distance almost forgotten, and hundreds of gifts later, his one-time sweetheart became his fiancé, and then finally his happy wife who made a home with him in the US. Even though he no longer needs GBO to send his wife surprises across the ocean (now he gets to do that in person), he still keeps surprising his mother-in-law in Russia with beautiful gifts and bouquets on all major occasions.
We’re happy to say, they truly have their happily ever after. Thank you for inspiring us to give a little more often, to love a little harder, and to never forget that even the smallest of gifts can go the distance and bring us all just a little bit closer.
“Best company to deal with for overseas Gift Baskets!
Fist of all, the web site is so easy to use. The selection of gift baskets is excellent. Payment by Pay Pal makes it very safe. The communication is first class. The fact the company contacted our friend and made sure, that firstly it was the correct address, secondly made sure our friend would be home to receive the Gift Basket. The gift Basket was of very good quality, and our friend Loved it. Then we where notified the basket was delivered. We would recommend Gift Baskets Overseas to everyone.Steve Yates”

“My online order was placed on 21 April 2016 at 19:00 MDT. The flowers were delivered to my friend in Russia at approximately 14:30 local time in Taganrog, Russian Federation. Amazingly quick! The recipient said the red roses were fresh and beautiful, and were delivered to her workplace without any problems. A special thank you is extended to Catalina Adams for her timely follow-up telephone call to confirm the order details. You can be assured I will use your company in the future. You made two people very happy!
“ “This company has shown me for the second time, that is the one you can trust the most when it comes to sending gifts around the world. I hired them twice (sending to South Korea), and both times I was more than satisfied. Always the best! I will come back to them for sure!
“This is really excellent service! I have used Gift Baskets Overseas for many years. I have always been very pleased with customer support and the company in general. Very professional, fast and reliable. Their standard to date has been excellent and I would recommend it to anyone without hesitation.
“I have now used GiftBasketsOverseas.com twice since my Son and Daughter In Law shifted for a working contract to Boston. Having family members so far away it is absolutely Fantastic knowing that we can show them how much we think of them and miss them by sending a choice of gifts for whatever occasion. GiftBasketsOverseas deliver at requested time. Any inquiry is promptly answered, presentation is perfect as advertised and the recipients of the gifts are equally ecstatic in receiving a surprise.
I will definitely be ordering again. Thank you!

“Thank you so much to the whole team. This is my first order with you and I am very impressed. You guys are true messengers. I was quite sad when i was first told that the earliest you could deliver the flowers was the day after her birthday. I thought to myself.. I have paid for it already can’t be bothered for a refund, so just go on with the delivery. I just thought better late than never. I was constantly updated of the progress from the time i placed my order online and it made me feel reassured.
I did not inform my daughter about the gifts. I was so shock when she sent me a message saying thank you for the flowers. They were delivered to her exactly ON her birthday. Not only that.. the delivery guy made his way to my daughter’s classroom at the University despite the instruction of just leaving the flowers at the dormitory’s reception. What a brilliant effort. The flowers were so lovely. A lot better than the pictures online. My daughter was so happy, took a selfie with her bouquet of flowers and made it her FB profile picture.
You guys ROCK! You made a personalized surprise across the miles. You surprised both of us. The chocolates were also received on the same day. Thank you so much! I will spread the nice experience and surely do this again.
“Please consider using this company for any gift baskets you need – for family, friends, coworkers, and the like. I had a wonderful experience with GiftBasketsOverseas. I was tentative about sending a basket, mostly because of the location in a public building, and the fact that I was totally unfamiliar with the setting. However, my son received this amazing gift with no issues at all. Everyone loved the items as well. I am going to share information on this company with others and look forward to using GiftBasketsOverseas for future orders. Many thanks!
