Reasons why we should be excited about this industry!

Gift Basket Business Statistics:

1) The industry has had an amazing amount of growth over the last twenty years and is now worth around 3.3 billion dollars annually in the US.

2) Gift baskets make up part of the ‘gift industry’ which is worth over 200 billion dollars a year. They are ranked fourth as a category behind other popular gifts like clothing and vouchers.

3) The industry has long been dominated by woman and even though men are slowly getting more involved, women make up the majority of business owners in this industry. Women are also more likely than men to be customers.

4) The corporate sector of the market is well worth targeting as it represents approximately 40% of the total market.

Calculate how much you need to start your ideal business, and then figure out how much you have. If you have all the cash you need, you’re very fortunate. If you don’t, you need to start playing with the numbers and deciding what you can do without. The checklist below will serve as a guide for creating a startup budget for your gift basket business. Prices for supplies and equipment are estimated ranges and will vary depending on features, sources and whether they’re new or used. What you spend may vary because you may already own some items, such as office equipment or a computer. Don’t forget to also factor in rent (unless you’re homebased), business license, utility deposits, insurance, any legal and accounting services and your grand opening advertising.

  • Specialty equipment (including work space fixtures, work tables, crafting tools, shrink wrapper, heat gun, signage and security system): $980 to $14,030
  • Storage fixtures and hardware (including storage shelves and cabinets): $100 to $500
  • Store equipment/fixtures for retail operations (including special displays, display shelving, cash register, counter, marking guns, floor gondolas, pegboard, hooks, showcases and wall gondolas): Anywhere from $0 if you already have these items to $9,895
  • Retail supplies (including cash register tape, shopping bags, gift boxes and sales tags and/or labels): up to $1,510
  • Office furniture, equipment and supplies (including computer and peripherals, fax, phone system, furniture, business stationary and miscellaneous supplies): $3,800 to $13,670
  • Packaging/shipping equipment (including hand truck, high-speed tape dispenser, carton stapler, electronic scale and paper shredder): $350 to $1,490
  • Packaging/shipping supplies (including sealing tape, boxes, mailing labels, cushioned mailers and packing materials): $505 to $1,200
  • Gift basket supplies (including baskets/containers, packing materials, decorative materials, shrink-wrap and/or cellophane and product/gifts): $1,675 to $28,500. The range is based on how much you spend on the products and gifts you put into your basket.
