Thank you so much. I spoke to [the recipient] today and she LOVES it! I will definitely keep your information for next summer when our next Au Pair arrives! What a great gift! Thank you!

Dear Team at Chelsea Market Baskets, I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my most recent order and to thank you for including a little extra treat. My order arrived so quickly and it was such a nice surprise that you added in some yummy little cookies. Thanks so much for carrying Prestat chocolates, they are quickly becoming my favorites and they're a bit hard to find on this side of the pond! I will be back to order from CMB soon because of your great customer service. Thanks again!

Hi there – the NY totes were a hit! All of our customers loved them! We actually would like to order more and have them available to hand out to customers at our NY office.

Marketing Manager, NCR Corporation, February 2014

They helped a ton with some last minute Christmas shopping - I was able to order several baskets which I picked up in store the next day on Christmas Eve. The baskets looked way nicer than the ones you'd get from one of the online companies or in a warehouse store. They were also very helpful in the store, despite it being busy with last minute shoppers. Highly recommended.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. I appreciate it and can't wait to hear how their weekend went. I know they are looking forward to the trip and this will make it extra special for them. I know that the generosity of others is as significant to them as the trip itself, so thank you for making this special. By the way, my son just moved to New York City two weeks ago. I will be coming to visit him and we'll make a point of stopping by your shop. I will also keep it in mind for sending him a gift basket from time to time! Please tell Jessica how much I appreciate her taking the time to add to this gift.

Just wanted to say thank you for making the Hollywood gift bags so wonderful – our group had an amazing time in Los Angeles and loved being surprised by the totes in the rooms. As always, you go above and beyond. Looking forward to working with you again soon!

Naomi, Relevent, January 2013

Thank you for a very courteous, prompt and professional job with my order. Marlon (I believe that is who took the order) was terrific.

Clinical Director of Operating Rooms, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, May 2012

That’s fantastic! Thanks so much. Will definitely use Chelsea Market Baskets again!!!!

Customer from Eulav Asset Management, May 2012

I just wanted to let you know that the nurses who received the basket raved about how great it is. I must say that having chosen your site "blind" as it were, simply on the basis of the website presentation, worked out splendidly for me and I shall recommend you to anyone who has the need.

Patricia Powasnick, May 2012

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful baskets last week—they really made the trip special for the group and were such a nice gift for them upon arrival.

Naomi Ratner of Relevent, May 2012

Thank you so much. I truly appreciate it! You made this a great customer experience for me.

Tracy, March 2012

Thanks so much Nicole; I appreciate it. I guess I found a new place to order my gift baskets :)

Jason Metz, AWESTRUCK Marketing Group, March 2012

I like the products at this store - I've used Chelsea Market Baskets for a number of thank you gifts over the years - both personal and for business - and they've always made a good impression.

Florence, New York City, June 2011

I have been using Chelsea Market Baskets for years and recommend them very highly.

Carol, New York City, February 2011

We were recipients of a gift basket and were impressed not only with the contents but with the keepsake basket it came in. We have ordered gifts for others twice since from them and have been delighted with the prompt service and responsive customer service. The products the baskets contain are truly delicious!!

Marica, New York City, January 2011

Chelsea Market Baskets has a wide selection of high end products. I love their new baby gifts and now send them exclusively. In addition to their superior quality, the wrapping and presentation of the gifts makes them really stand out. Every gift basket that I have sent has gotten rave reviews!
