The author Walter Tevis famously quipped, When in doubt, play chess! We heartily agree. There is no better exercise for the mind, no better way to pass the time with close friends than by playing a friendly game of chess. This beautiful, unique basket comes with a chess set, a bottle of Whiskey, and a charming plaid blanket. Beginners and experts alike will enjoy this thoughtful gift.
"We were looking for a service that could send a holiday gift to a friend of ours who lives in Bucharest, Romania. Experience has shown this is NOT an easy thing to do if trying to mail the gift yourself from the USA (and of course you are quite limited in what you can send from here to Europe, and of course there are Customs charges as well!). With Gift Baskets Overseas, we were able to avoid such difficulties. We picked out a lovely gift basket of goodies for our friend which we assume were sent from the U.K. thereby avoiding Customs fees and exorbitant shipping charges from the U.S. The gift basket arrived on time in Bucharest, and the delivery service there went the extra mile to find our friend who was not at the office that day to insure her gift was delivered. She was very excited and pleased and so are we."

"I gave a very short notice on my order. Giving them less than 2 business days and wanting it delivered on the weekend. Between those two facts, I figured my package wouldn't be on time. But I was pleasantly surprised to realize it arrived exactly when I wanted it to! The service is fantastic and ill definitely be using them again.

"I first used Giftbasketsoverseas.com months ago. I placed an order from USA going to Russia. I placed on a Saturday night and it was delivered to my friend on Sunday. I was amazed how quick it was. I just placed my 2nd order on May 3rd another Saturday night and again it was delivered the next day. My friend loved it. Her Mom is going in the hospital for surgery so I just wanted to give them some joy. They forgot to put my card with the message with gift. It really was not a problem but they really stepped up and the next day brought my friend a complimentary box of chocolates. That was a great gesture and I will be using gift baskets solely and will recommend to anyone that will be shipping abroad."

"This was the first time we worked with the company and the experience was great. We are in South America and we sent gifts to several countries. We were afraid that we would not be able to control the delivery and/or the situation, so we repeatedly sent inquiries. We received immediate response to all our questions and doubts, we were informed of every package delivered or processed, and the corporate specialist that we worked with was very accurate, kind, helpful and professional, I highly recommend them. It is a serious and responsible company."

"My son and two granddaughters live in Singapore. My son teaches school there. When he first went there, I sent a "have a great school year" basket. It has become a tradition to do this-over 10 years, now. The place where I usually go to send my son's annual ''have a great school year'' basket, told me they could not do it any more. I was frustrated, to say the least. I don't ''do'' computers-except what I HAVE to. But, I typed in-send a fruit basket to Singapore...this place is what I chose. I am SO glad I did. The communication was pleasant/professional, the basket was sent expediently, and it had all the things that were suggested. My son LOVED his ''have a great school year'' basket. I am extremely pleased with Giftbasketsoverseas, and shall use them again."
