Providing Classic Gourmet Gift Baskets in

Astoria, NY, Since 1986

The Gifted Ones set up shop on a quiet block in NYC's West Village in 1986. From its inception, our store has gained a reputation for personalized customer service and unique high-quality products. We decided early on that our customers had to be our top priority for our business to succeed.

After 20 years, thanks to all of you, our little gift basket company expanded and we closed our Greenwich Village storefront, relocating to a spacious warehouse in Long Island City (Queens) to accommodate our growing internet business.

We are still an independent small business run by Tim Riches. We are passionate about our unique and tasteful gourmet gift baskets in Astoria, NY, as well as our customer service. Our team continues to provide our customers with the same personal attention that we're known for.

Our mission is to provide unique, elevated creations that satisfy any need. Please call us if you don't see what you want or if you need assistance to create the basket you need—we're still here for you, just like we always have been.

Continuing Our Tradition of Food Excellence 

From the moment we started serving local customers, we worked to be a company that inspires the most memorable occasions in the area. Whether you want to celebrate a birthday or a major life accomplishment, our gourmet food baskets translate your appreciation into a tangible creation for the recipient. 

A gift basket strikes the perfect balance between practicality and sentiment. You give your friend or loved one a delectable reminder of how much they mean to you. Best of all, you never have to worry about getting them something they already have. Our products deliver a distinctive experience every time.

How do we make our products so memorable? Well, it all starts with one of the first things we learned as a new business in the West Village: personalized service to enhance client satisfaction. We’ve put people first since our very first basket. Now, we continue to tailor our creations to fit every client who needs our products.

Contact us for unforgettable gift baskets to suit your occasion. We proudly serve Astoria, New York, and the surrounding areas.

Read What Some Our Satisfied Clients Have to Say About Us

"What would I do without the GIFTED ONES? I've worked with them for at least ten years on every special occasion that I've had at CBS Late Night. They are always helpful by presenting a gift that I've selected in the most special way or by helping me find the perfect gift for the most challenging client. When David and his priceless staff help me with Late Night gifts, I know that deadlines will be met. I never worry about delivery or content. They are truly magnificent. It is my pleasure to give them the highest personal and professional recommendation possible. You cannot be in better hands than these to accomplish the extraordinary or make the impossible possible." — Dorian Hannaway (Director of Late Night Programs/CBS TV)

"The Gifted Ones went out of their way to help us customize a basket to send to our clients. We wanted to send a gift to thank our customers for their business and to remind them of our upcoming conference in Albuquerque, NM. I was not exactly sure what I wanted, so the Gifted Ones took the time to learn about our company, our conference, and our budget and used that information to put together the perfect, customized gift. Not only was the gift basket shaped like a chili pepper to remind people of the trip to Albuquerque, it was full of excellent, yet different, snacks. They even gave us the great idea of including two bottles of salsa with customized labels, one which promoted our company and the other promoted our event. The baskets were a huge hit! We send out gifts every year around December, but this was the first year that we were flooded with appreciative phone calls and e-mails." — Lauren Rattican (Marketing Operations & Event Associate/TMA Resources)

"The entire order was amazing to say the least. I just think you guys do the best work. The entire staff at the New Victory commented on the beauty and flavor of the gifts. You guys rock! Keep up the great work." — Daniel J. Hess (Chicago Shakespeare Theater)

"I have had such a wonderful experience with your company. Not only will I use it again, but I will certainly recommend it to my friends. You were conscientious and considerate and went out of your way to send something for me ON A SATURDAY at the last minute, when you certainly could have just as easily turned my business away. Thanks again for your marvelous service. It was an unqualified success." — Sue R.

"I wanted to thank you for the service today, particularly the fine person I spoke with when ordering. I have many relatives in New York, and I shall call you for all future gifts. It is hard to find people these days that can exude warmth and professionalism, and she managed to do it over the phone. Thanks again." — Maria M.
