We have been shipping gift baskets to the USA since the late 1990’s. Prior to 2002 it was as simple as shipping a gift within Canada, but then 9/11 happened and the US instilled a bioterroism act placing restrictions on the importation of food products and how it could be done. It happened very quietly and took effect right at our busiest time of year-Christmas. Many gift basket companies simply stopped shipping to the US, but since many of our loyal customers had clients in both the USA and Canada and they wanted to send the same gifts to everyone, we began to investigate how we could continue to offer this service. After many hours and lots of sweat equity all the proper documentation was in place to allow us to continue servicing our customers who wished to ship to the USA. It was a lot of hard work, but whoever said that hard work was a bad thing? Feeling the satisfaction of achieving something for our customers was worth all the hard work and we were more than happy to do it knowing that we were again able to provide the kind of service they have come to expect from Boodles of Baskets and Gift Baskets Canada.
