“Cathy delivered outstanding personalized gift baskets for my clients, I was so pleased with the whole process and the progress photos were great because I could see exactly what was in them and that was important to me to be able to give someone something very personalized and specific as a gift. I certainly recommend Cathy and her fantastic gifts baskets, she is a true professional. “
It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Kathy from Designs For You in Kamloops.

Oh Cathy I read your email and wanted to cry and seeing the pictures was more of the same! Bless your heart! Once again, absolutely above and beyond! Thank you for your wonderful talent of being able to create personalized gift baskets that represent caring and love. You are amazing!
As you know this one was sensitive and difficult and you blew it right over the top!
Thank you my friend!
“I am so glad I found Designs for You!
My daughter was at a competition in Kamloops with her teammates over her sixteenth birthday. Missing her birthday was hard so we wanted to do something special for her. Cathy took on the challenge and created a giant basket of goodies to be shared by her team.
Cathy went above and beyond in her creation – sourcing a card and balloon to go with a great variety of goodies. She even visited the competition site in order to try to source an event T-shirt. She was incredibly flexible, responsive and communicative (sending pictures of the basket and the delivery) throughout the process. Her team delivered the basket exactly when they said they would (early in the morning before the competition started).
My daughter loved the surprise, as did her teammates. Thanks for making me look like a super mom, Cathy!!”
Just a few days before Christmas I contacted Cathy. I emailed from California inquiring if it was too late to send my daughter and son-law a gift basket.
I usually send money but it just never seems personal. I loved her website and it was easy communicating with her. She made a beautiful basket for them and organized the delivery to Barrier. They so enjoyed it.
What can you get for your older kids? Next year I am going to do the same thing. So easy! Thank you Cathy.
Our company has been sending gift baskets for years – I had a client that lives in Kamloops so I was looked for a local company there to get a Christmas basket sent to them – I was so impressed with the quality and the unique items that were in the basket – way different from the typical large baskets company – I have since used Cathy for all our baskets needs – even for the Lower Mainland – Cathy really cares about her baskets and it shows- This is the comments from the last basket we sent to a co-worker returning to work.
“REALLY nice. ….the best basket I’ve see yet. She was over the moon about it.”
What an experience!! Cathy was a pleasure to work with. She took the time to understand my situation and exceeded my expectations with her truly remarkable customer service. This was my first time doing anything like this online & she included me in the process which increased my confidence and put me at ease. I highly recommend Designs For You Baskets and working with Cathy!!

Cathy is just as much a creative genius as she is a life saver. Twice now she’s made amazing gifts for my family and both were incredibly well received. Her attention to detail, customer service, and thoughtfulness are truly appreciated. If you are looking for a gift for someone one call her!
Adam – Ontario
As I was approaching the Holiday Season, wanting to recognize my clients and business associates I reach out to Cathy at Designs For You Baskets.
I’m so glad I did, she was very easy to work with taking into consideration my budget and a few last minute changes. Great step by step updates by email with photo suggestions and additional ideas. I would highly recommend Cathy and Designs For You Baskets to anyone wanting to create a special gift with that personal touch. As well as THANK Cathy for all the amazing support she personally gives our community!

I was so pleased with my experience, dealing with Cathy at Designs for You. Cathy took great care to select items that suited the recipient, and consulted me at every step. Living across the country, I appreciated all the communication and photos. The basket turned out beautifully, and was happily received. This is so much better than mass-produced gift baskets!
Helen – Ottawa
My daughter found Designs For You on the Internet for me. I have a friend in Kamloops having a landmark birthday without family so I wanted something special. Cathy asked me questions about my friend and price range and came up with an amazing basket and card that was everything I’d hoped it would be. My only disappointment is that Cathy doesn’t live and work in southern Ontario! She is insightful and talented. I would recommend her services with full confidence.
I highly recommend Cathy’s Designs For You service for anyone wanting to brighten up someone’s day from afar. I live in Richmond and was able to use Designs For You to send a birthday gift basket to my mother while she was up in Kamloops for a few weeks. Cathy was quick to respond to my inquiry, made it easy for me to convey my wishes, and perfectly executed my vision for a pampering basket of wine, cheese, chocolates, and baked goods, all done and delivered within two days of our conversation. She even went the extra mile and picked up a lovely birthday card which matched the colour scheme I asked her to use for the basket’s decor. My Mom was so surprised and loved everything in the basket. Even though we couldn’t spend the day together, I still got to make her smile and send my love her way thanks to Cathy’s excellent service. I would use Designs For You again in a heartbeat, thank you, Cathy.
I have used Cathy for a number of new baby gift baskets, and each time the reviews have been fantastic! Cathy’s communication throughout is excellent, with lots of customization options and progress photos.
I highly recommend Cathy’s work!

I have known of Cathy and her extraordinary basket-making talents for almost 3 years now, and have been in a position to use those talents for the past 2 years. All of her creations that I have seen are truly unique in that she makes them to order, with your suggestions (if you have any), and gently inquires to the nature of the gift and their recipients. Cathy seems to absorb the smallest details, transferring those observations into a basket that is incredibly personal and thus accepted with genuine delight. I have requested her talents many times last minute, throwing in changes and even my own “stuff”, but she continually delivers within my budget and with my now-expected “wow” factor. It is this professionalism that allows Cathy to truly stand out from the crowd. It’s funny – before working with Cathy I never fully understood the impact that a tasteful, personalized gift basket can have on a relationship, but now I could not imagine using anything or anyone else when recognizing someone or sending a congratulatory gift, or having an eye-catching door prize at a work function. I am happy to recommend and endorse Cathy and Designs For You Baskets.

Cathy was great to work with…she made up exactly what we needed at an affordable price and shipped when we needed it to arrive….and only charged the actual shipping costs, not for “handling”. I highly recommend Designs For Your Baskets!

I ordered a gift basket to surprise my parents for their anniversary while they were staying overnight in a hotel. It can be tricky ordering things like that online when you are not there to see it or be a part of the planning.
Cathy made it a piece of cake and took all of the work off my hands—ensuring the basket made it to their hotel and ensuring it was placed in their room and looked nice.
The basket was beautiful and more than I expected. Thank You Cathy… I will definitely be ordering again!!
Cathy was so wonderful to work with!! I contacted her last minute and she quickly put together a customized basket for me. And she delivered it within 48 hours of my order. I live in Calgary and the basket was for a friend in Blind Bay. I did all of my communication with Cathy via email and she was extremely helpful and flexible. She really went above and beyond to create and deliver the basket before my friend went into labour. I was so thankful that the basket got to my friend just in time. I would highly recommend Cathy’s services!!
Thanks again Cathy,
I am thrilled with what you have chosen to include in the basket, and how you have presented it. You have done an outstanding job. Thank you. Thank you.
It is difficult to create a gift when you do not deal face to face with the sender, however you have included what I requested along with gathered other selections that you knew would be appreciated. Too often we only complain about things and not compliment enough.
Well done! It is a splendid gift.

Cathy was able to put together a gift basket within a few days for my friend’s birthday. She sourced all of the items that I had requested, and added several more which complemented nicely. I highly recommend Designs for You for any gift baskets that you’re after in the Kamloops area.
You did a masterful job of creating a magnificent basket. My mother loved it as did all her friends. Thank you for sending all the photographs
PS: thank you also to your husband for all his efforts in getting the basket to Chilliwack for Christmas
We recently used ‘Designs for You’ in designing gift baskets for some of our prestigious clients. We had a short timeline and Cathy handled it very well.
She gave us options as we requested and totally customized it based on our preferences. All this over the weekend and working with our short deadline. All our clients received the basket on time and came back to us with very good feedback. Our experience was very good. Best wishes to the team.”
Designs for you Baskets has provided tremendous customer service! The baskets are made custom for my clients with any specific requirements I have always worked into the gift basket, and great special touches added to give the gifts a personal feel. I have had the need for quick pick up and Designs for you Baskets has been able to get the baskets together very quickly for the last minute gift. The items in the baskets are high quality and my clients have appreciated the gesture time and time again. Thank you again for everything!
Thanks again Cathy,
Happy New Year

Cathy came up with a wonderful gift basket surprise for my sister in Revelstoke. She understood what I wanted and took pictures all along the way so I knew what would arrive. Thank you Cathy! I will look forward to the next time I use Designs For You.
Recently, my Granddaughter had been feeling unwell. Unfortunately, I reside in Saskatchewan and was feeling very desperate that I could not be near her to help or hug her. I phoned Cathy and asked her if it would be possible to create a “get well” basket for a young girl and she instantly knew what she would do. She filled me in on her ideas and told me she would send me photos of the basket. The basket was perfect for a little girl and it included a sweet teddy bear, chocolates, popcorn, and many other items. Cathy also gave my granddaughter a beautiful bracelet and it made her day. There is so much to be said about a person who really puts her heart into her work. Thank you Cathy, for being so compassionate and for personalizing the basket basted on listening to me and the situation. I also wanted to add that Cathy delivered the basket the same day that I ordered it. You helped make one little girl very happy at a time when she was feeling awful and I can’t thank you enough.
Designs For You Baskets is the perfect welcoming, housewarming, or shower
gift! They use high quality, gourmet ingredients and even let us add our own
special items to the baskets. They keep in touch with you during the whole
process to make sure you are satisfied. The baskets were made up very
quickly and looked gorgeous in their wrapping. 10/10

Dear Cathy at Designs For You,
Thank you so much for the fabulous baskets for the Canadian Council of the Blind (CCB) BC-Yukon Division AGM April 2017. They were a big hit and an excellent centre piece, the door prize baskets were also very well received! We do appreciate all your hard work. We will be in touch again for a repeat order in the future.
Thank you on behalf of the CCB BC-Yukon Division Board Members, Members and Volunteers.
Forget the gift card. If you really want to present someone with something special, contact Cathy!
She has an incredible talent for creating astoundingly beautiful, and unique, gift baskets. I highly recommend her services for any occasion when you really want to give a gift with class. She made the process incredibly easy for me, complete with photos, delivery, and easy payment.
My gift recipients were absolutely thrilled with the creative assortment of high-quality goodies carefully placed into a gorgeous basket, topped off with an amazingly beautiful, hand tied bow. Thanks Cathy!
Welding Inspector/Welding Professional
I was introduced to Designs for You, and the owner Cathy from my brother in-law, whom live in Kamloops and uses Cathy’s services as well. I live in Penticton and contacted Cathy at the beginning of December 2016 to put together a basket for me the week of Christmas Break, for business owners, that I respect, love, and have a business relationship with.
I gave Cathy the all the specifics on the business owners that the basket was for. I gave her details on the family dynamics, hours of work, a few of their favourite things and hobbies.
So after a few emails back and forth, Cathy said leave it to me. The week of Christmas Break I was concerned I had not heard from Cathy. The day before Christmas Eve, I phoned her asking if the basket had been done, and delivered. She phoned me back within minutes, saying that she was planning to deliver the basket in person Christmas Eve.
Cathy delivered the basket Christmas Eve to the Business Owner in person and the response I got was amazing. It had a bunch of their favourite things in the basket. What was most amazing is that Cathy had put together a basket in white and turquoise and the Business Owner’s house in decorated in white and turquoise. And I did not know the Business Owner’s house colours, nor did Cathy.
Cathy not only delivered on putting together a beautiful basket but it was made with such care a attention, the intuition Cathy has once she has all the information is amazing and the detail she puts into her work is breathtaking. I will be using Cathy’s services in the future and recommend her as well.
If you are reading these testimonials and having any doubts about getting a gift basket from Cathy you have nothing to fear because there is nobody better at making gift baskets than Cathy!
I was very lucky to have Cathy make a basket for me to give to my brother and sister in law for the birth of their baby girl. With minimal information from me I was astonished at how much detail and creativity Cathy was able to bring to the basket.
My first impression of the basket had me speechless. Cathy put so much care and love into the basket with the big pink bows and special gifts for my niece it was more than I could visualize. My family absolutely loved the basket that they didn’t even want to open it right away!
The first thing you need to know about working with Cathy is she is very caring, diligent, and makes everything personable. She sends out e-mails ahead of time to show you what is inside the basket and no matter how busy she is, she is always going to pull through for you.
I’m happy to call Cathy my friend and she made me look like a superstar when I met my niece and I will be forever grateful!

I wanted to write this and tell you how great my experience was with Cathy from Designs For You.
I had a couple baskets I had purchased from her at different times. Both times I didn’t give a lot of notice, hardly any at all actually. Poor Cathy I wasn’t even counting on getting anything in time because of my lack of planning, not hers.
I am not a very creative person and not very good at thinking of things to give. Trust me if you are like me you want a Cathy in your life, that you can go to for a meaningful or fun gift. I was so surprised to get such wonderful baskets in time! I was able to present to both individuals that were very presently surprised.
The one basket was for a friend of mine who had lost both parents within a couple weeks. I am terrible around death as I never know what to do because I haven’t been around it a lot. But after talking with Cathy and really feeling how genuine and caring she was, I knew it was the right thing to give and that it would be a wonderful basket.
I got a lovely meaningful basket for my friend who was so touched and happy. It was because Cathy knew what to do, she asked the right questions found out more about my friend and her parents, so she could create something so great.
Thank you Cathy, I would highly recommend you to anyone.

The main thing that sets Cathy apart is that she cares and puts a homemade loving touch into every basket.
Each basket is custom tailored and unique to each of my client’s hobbies and interests which is exactly the boutique level of service that I appreciate. Cathy is creative and fun with every basket and many of my clients later post about some of the cool gifts that they receive.
All of Cathy’s baskets are completely full to the brim with quality items; I always appreciate the complete inventory list along with photo’s before each basket is carefully wrapped with a bow and decorated with helium balloons!
Cathy is prompt in her communication and delivers each basket on time she has the kind great personality that is perfect for the final closing and thank-you for each of my local clients.
Cathy is an integral part of my business!
I have been on the giving end and the receiving end of these great personalized gift baskets and they have exceeded my expectations every time.
The first time I used Designs For You was for business and we needed a personal touch to give to some of our customers and each one was designed completely different and floored each customer.
After seeing her creativity and her attention to detail for each person I had no doubt to use her for a specialized gift to be sent to Ontario. After she completed the basket I was FLOORED! There was even custom hand painted mugs designed just for them, I couldn’t believe it!
The icing on top of the cake was when I receive a basket myself as a congratulation gift on financial services I received and she didn’t leave anything out, perfectly detailed to my interests and hobbies. Dealing with Cathy and her business really shows what she’s about and how passionate she is about her products for her customers. 5 stars across the board!
One of my gym members recently purchased her first home, and I wanted to give her something that would be both cute and practical!!
I emailed Cathy, at Designs for You, and told her what my basket idea was and what my budget was. She put together a beautiful basket of all natural cleaning supplies and delivered it.
My member was so thrilled with the surprise!! Cathy provides a great service and I would happily use her again.
I received a gift basket made by Cathy for my birthday. What a great gift to receive. It was so chocked full of goodies I didn’t know where to begin.
The baskets she creates are not only beautiful but they are very detailed for each client. No assembly line here! Each basket is created and tailored to the individual.
After receiving this special gift I purchased one for my son on his engagement. Cathy made the engagement basket very special for them with champagne, flute glasses and amazing gourmet goodies for them to enjoy! It was so special and individualized just for them.
I will refer everyone to Cathy for these beautiful gifts!
Cathy from Designs For You Baskets has just recently put together 2 great-looking gift baskets for 2 very different clients of mine. Her attention to detail and the prompt service was very impressive. She still found time to get the second basket completed while she was dealing with some personal issues which was above and beyond my expectations. I would refer Cathy to anyone that I know looking for a customizable gift basket.

“I have been working with Cathy at Designs For You Baskets on-going for almost a year now. Cathy uses her creativity and eye for detail to create baskets that are not only beautiful, but also unique.

I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful baskets you prepared and
delivered for Valentine’s Day this year. The combination of outstanding quality items in the basket combined with varieties of chocolate choices and confections was excellently presented. The recipients were extremely pleased. Your variety of basket choices are fantastic. I think of your service often and can’t wait to place another order to reward someone special. I never hesitate to recommend your service to others.
Vance Smelland, General Manager, M3 Steel Structures Ltd.
“We’ve used Designs 4 You a couple of times now for employee birthday baskets. Cathy responded to my request right away and kept me informed of the progress every step of the way; including sending me pictures of the basket she delivered. Our employees are always impressed with the quality of the baskets they get. I’d definitely recommend using Designs 4 You!”
My family and I recently ordered a gift basket from Designs For You for our 83 year old father’s birthday. Not only did Cathy do an amazing job putting together a basket for us but we believe she went beyond and above what we expected to receive. We gave her a “basic” idea of what we wanted for him and although she has never met our father she seemed to know exactly what he would like. It gave our entire family great joy watching him open his basket along with our 2 year old great niece. If anyone is looking to order a gift basket for someone special in your life Designs For You is the place
to go. Thanks Cathy!
We have been working with Cathy from Designs 4 You for the past couple of
years and have referred her to several of our clients.
Each client has called us back to let us know how well the baskets purchased were received and have purchased more.
If you are looking for a professional basket company that can custom design your baskets or just offer the theme you are looking for, you “must” contact Cathy. She is open to discussing your needs and will source well priced items to fill the baskets to your liking.
I would highly recommend Cathy from Designs 4 You to anyone interested in
impressing their customers, loved ones or family.

I live in Victoria BC and have a brother in Kamloops and three friends at Loon Lake BC. I wanted something special for each over the holiday season and came across Designs For You through the internet. The service and effort put in by Cathy to construct the perfect custom basket for each was impressive. She provided photos of each basket as well as a detailed list of contents and for a very modest delivery charge her husband drove 120 km to personally deliver the three to Loon Lake.. My friends commented they we absolutely overwhelmed. The baskets were gorgeous with a red rose on the side of each and the personal delivery to the door was unexpected and special.
If you are looking for that something special for friends or family I would highly recommend a gift basket from Designs For You .
I wanted to take the opportunity to drop you a quick line thanking you for your exemplary service. I must say I have never been provided with such detail from anyone in the service industry internationally. Not just in Canada. It’s a pleasure to see some people still take the extra mile within the service Industry and I personally wanted to make a point of extending my appreciation. I have done a lot of travelling and conducted business in many different places and I have never seen effort like you have conveyed with this order. Keep up the awesome work and continuous success is sure to be a part of your enterprise!

I was struggling with the thought of finding the perfect Christmas gift for a person that seems to have it all. With time running out, I emailed Cathy providing her with few basic ideas and a budget and she presented me with some examples which turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. Cathy was very easy to work with and took the time to develop the perfect gift, which included some freshly home baked cookies!
Cathy did a phenomenal job and it was such a relief during the holidays knowing that she was looking after my gift from start to finish. Cathy even took the time to drive into town and pick up a bottle of wine that I had hand picked and purchased at the liquor store for my basket.
I would recommend Designs for You Baskets, without hesitation, for both personal and professional occasions.
Hope this is what you are looking for— again, sorry for my delay.

“This past holiday season, I had contacted Cathy from Designs for You, to order some holiday gift baskets to be delivered to my clients. Right off the bat, I was quite impressed by her promptness in responding to my inquiry. Cathy’s professionalism and her personal touch was very refreshing. She didn’t hesitate to go above and beyond what I had asked for, always giving me options.
To sum it up, Cathy’s customer service is second to none. The finished products were beautiful as she also sent me photos of the baskets. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Cathy to anyone. I will definitely be calling Cathy again to take care of all my gifting needs.
Owner/partner Mountainside Enterprises
Shortly before Christmas, in the busiest time of the year, I contacted Cathy via email about a gift basket. Right away, she got to work on preparing a lovely gift basket, custom-made according to my request. To ensure that it was just what I wanted, she sent numerous photos of the basket in progress, and confirmed that everything was perfect before delivering the basket exactly when pre-arranged! To top it off, she emailed me afterwards to verify that everything was fine with the basket. Amazing customer service, truly appreciated, especially at such a hectic time of year!
‘Designs For You provides professional service with a personal touch. I contacted Cathy after finding her company online
because I wanted a basket delivered to my Aunt who was in hospital. Cathy knew just what I needed and she spent the
time to find just the right components for my basket. Each item was chosen with care and I never once felt like I was
ordering a generic basket. This basket was created with my Aunt’s personality in mind. I will use D4U again in the future
when I need to send love to someone! Thanks Cathy.’
Leanne, Grande Prairie, AB
I want to thank you for the basket you sent my brother again this year. I so appreciate the effort you make to
ensure my satisfaction; the attention to detail you provide; the communications sent before, during, and after
delivery; and the caring you demonstrate throughout for me, as a customer, and also for the recipients.
You make it very easy for me. Thank you.
Living so far from home, it’s hard to find gifts for my family in Kamloops that come with a personal touch. Flowers just don’t cut it after awhile , and don’t offer much bang for your buck. Cathy has come to my rescue on many occasions over the years, and her baskets are always a special treat that is well received by my Mom and Dad. The effort she puts in to making it all perfect is much appreciated!!
St. Albert, Ab
I wanted to take the time to tell you that last year I had Cathy and her team at “Designs for You” make up all of
our X-mas gift baskets for our customers. I had a chance to see the baskets as they were sent to our office
before they went out, and they looked amazing. The detail that was put into the decorating and crafting of these
baskets was impressive, and what was even more impressive were the goods that were inside. As soon as they
arrived at my customers doorsteps I received phone calls and emails from all of them thanking me and
wondering where I got those baskets from. I have received a few baskets from other companies throughout the
years and let me tell you that none of them even come close.
Also I wanted to point out something else that impressed me. They came down and hand delivered all the
baskets from Kamloops to our door in Surrey as we were under some tight deadlines. Professional, Outstanding
service, and a great product.
It’s a no brainer we will be doing our baskets with them again, and I know you will not be disappointed if you choose to do so this year.
Sincerely, Jeremy Nichols

I used “Designs for you Gift Baskets” for our marketing blitz for Christmas 2013. We wanted a company that would offer unique/high end baskets and that is exactly what we got. Received a list of the items that would be going in the basket along with photos which showed me the final product. You can tell that Cathy takes great pride in her baskets. It was a pleasure working with Cathy and we will definitely use them again. The feedback from one of our clients was “The basket was gorgeous! “
Operations Manager – Back in Motion Functional Assessments Inc.
‘Designs for You Baskets” continues to be an amazing online Christmas shopping experience for us! When you are hundreds of miles away and can’t check out the local venues personally in order to place an order for clients or partner companies, this option is just ideal! Cathy goes above & beyond to ensure that our wishes come true…even to the point of getting up at 4:00 am. to bake cookies! That was a very special touch this year! Once she knows what we require, she pulls it together, takes pictures, includes a list of items in the basket and has us okay it. Then she packages it up beautifully & sends more pics. Once we have okayed it all, Cathy has it delivered when requested & our people in Kamloops exclaim & rave about their basket. I checked with them & there was nothing but highest praise for the basket! Apparently, the cookies didn’t last the morning. Great work Cathy….as you know
we keep coming back!!

“I live in Australia and my brother lives in Kamloops so sometimes it is hard to find something personal to get to him in
time for special occasions. Then I found Designs for You! Cathy is lovely to work with and has lots of special and creative
ideas and suggestions. I have called upon the services of Cathy multiple times and I will definitely be emailing her again
soon. It is perfect for when you want to send something special and personal and you live overseas or just a town away.
Thank you Cathy for all of your hard work and your remarkable attention to detail and thoughtfulness. I recommend a
basket from Designs for You for all occasions!”

We really enjoyed the personal service we received from “Designs For You Baskets.”
It was a pleasure to work with Cathy and we hope to use this service again soon. I have never experienced this type of gift-giving service before. Being able to choose the gifts in a basket was perfect.
North Vancouver, BC
Designs For You helped me out when the Christmas rush came upon me and I simply ran out of time & ideas! My family is in Sun Peaks and I wanted something for the group to share. After some discussion regarding their personal favourites -Cathy created a unique basket of beverages & gourmet treats for all – bundled up in a lovely scented cedar tote and hand delivered in time for their Christmas celebrations!
Barbara — Thornbury, Ontario
Just a note to let you know that all of the baskets that you have made for me, have been excellent. You have a great
ideas and always put products in them that totally suit the recipients.
I love the way you always put in that little ” something unique and special”. Keep up the good work.
Vi Hilton — Kamloops, BC
We needed a basket for a person who had just purchased a home in the Kamloops area. I went on the internet and found Designs for you Baskets. I contacted them to see if it was possible to get a basket done up and delivered on such short notice and Cathy was very accommodating. She was very helpful in helping me decided on a basket, was more than willing to do it up anyway that I wanted.
She sent pictures of the basket before delivering it to make sure it was good enough and the receiving party we sent it too called to say it was beautiful and was delivered exactly when Cathy said it would be. She even included a recipe for some wonderful muffins!
I would definitely use this business again for any gift giving that is required in the Kamloops area. Cathy went over and above what would normally be required to make sure that the basket was delivered when wanted and she did all this before receiving payment. We live in northern BC, so sometimes challenging to find a local business in other areas to do such personal gift/delivering.
I highly recommend this business and thank Cathy again for such awesome service — nice to know you can still get that these days!

Just a note to tell you how much I enjoyed working with you to create the perfect gift basket for my friend. I was
delighted you were willing to go out of your way to obtain products you do not normally place in your baskets in order
to create a perfectly tailored basket. And your suggestions re adding in your personal baking was perfect. It was an
absolute pleasure to hear the delight in my friends voice when she called upon receipt of the basket and found all her
My experience is that DESIGNS FOR YOU gives careful personal attention to their customers’ orders, and I have appreciated the creative ideas suggested to me. Both myself and the recipient of my gifts have been delighted with the attractive appearance and quality of the items in their gift baskets.

I have been sending Christmas baskets out to my siblings in Kamloops for a number of years out of Calgary. The baskets “got the job done” but were not fantastic. Then we started running into delivery issues, so decided to try a local provider. When I came across the Designs for You site, it appealed to me and I decided to give the company a try. The results were far better than expected. Everyone absolutely loved the baskets and said they were the best ever”. Her service was unmatched — she went above and beyond to better my expectations. I was extremely pleased. “10/10” is how I would rate her product and service. I will be back again next year!

I live out of town and when looking for a gift basket for my mothers birthday Cathy was very helpful. She was
able to customize the basket to really suit my moms needs. She was even able to deliver. I was very happy
with the service and would recommend Designs for you to anyone looking to send someone something
Shortly before Christmas, my sister, a Kamloops resident, had back surgery. So on Christmas Eve, my brother and I decided to send her something special; flowers just weren’t going to cut it. An online search brought us to “Designs For You Baskets.”
I called Cathy, and she was incredibly helpful, offering suggestions and options for our gift. She was very creative and paid great attention to detail. Despite being busy (did I mention this was Christmas Eve?), she sent a photo of the finished product for our approval (it was magnificent), before getting it to Sis that same day. You just don’t get this type of personalized service any more, folks; you can’t go wrong with “Designs For You Baskets.”
I just wanted to thank you for creating a wonderful Christmas basket.
The gift was well received.
I will be using your services in the future.
We utilized Designs for You to provide several custom gift baskets for our clients in Kamloops for Christmas. Cathy provided us with very flexible customizable options to work both within our budget and with our need to have each basket customized to suit each recipient’s individual tastes. She also provided photographs of representative examples to assist us in deciding on both the look and contents of each basket, which was invaluable as we are located out of town.
Even with our large order, Cathy was able to accommodate our required delivery date, and provided a detailed list of the contents of each basket along with photographs of each for our approval before delivery. The addition of the home baking option, with cookies and muffins made fresh by Cathy on the day of delivery, gave each basket a very personal and warm touch. Designs For You provided excellent personal service, great value, and an excellent product that our clients very much enjoyed. We would not hesitate to recommend Designs For You, and we will most definitely be a repeat customer.

Thank you Cathy for the beautiful baskets you prepared for our clients in Kamloops. Last year on a moment’s notice you were able to prepare and hand deliver a beautiful basket which was wonderful, and again this year you didn’t disappoint! Our clients especially enjoyed the homemade items and I hope to continue using you for years to come.
Being out of province, it is a nice touch you send photos of the baskets before and after wrapping so we know exactly what we are sending to our clients. Keep up the beautiful work!!
“My son and fiancée live in Kamloops, and I live near Ottawa. I decided that their Christmas present this year would be a rather unique gift basket, partly in recognition of their recent engagement. Fortunately, I “stumbled” on the “Designs for You” website, so decided to give them a call. Cathy answered the phone, and that was the start of a brief but very productive exchange of information to get this basket just right.
Cathy listened carefully to what I had in mind, and was very helpful with her suggestions. She e-mailed me with photos several times so I could actually see the basket being assembled. The wine selection, special touches and the home-baked muffins were all a great hit!
The finished product was simply awesome, and the ultimate beneficiaries – my son and fiancée – were very pleased and impressed. They told me the contents of the basket didn’t last long, and that’s a very good indicator of satisfaction! Thank you Cathy … I highly recommend your services to anyone shopping for a gift basket in the Kamloops area!
“I had just bought a house in Kamloops and wanted to get something special for my real estate agent on short notice. I
couldn’t get away from work to get her a gift, so I called Cathy and asked about some of the baskets she had on her
website. It was late afternoon on December 18 so I knew she’d be busy with the holiday season, but she was able to turn
around an incredible basket and have it delivered to the Realtor’s office the next day! I was blown away by her service
and the attention to detail — and my Realtor was blown away by the gift basket! After this experience, I will definitely be
going back to Designs For You to help me make an impression in the future.
“Cathy at Designs For You is really the embodiment of customer service. In most cases, when a person is purchasing this type of a gift it’s an emotional, sensitive, or special time a time when you need to be in someone like Cathy’s capable hands. The product is beautiful, customizable for your needs, created from the heart, timely and a great value. Forget flowers and cards —this is a great way to express how you feel to someone.”
Cathy was absolutely amazing. She was so easy and pleasant to deal with. Cathy donated an amazing wine basket to the Miss Kamloops ambassador program for a silent auction. Not only was she so generous, but the basket was everything I hoped for!
Any input I had she was there to make sure the basket came perfectly!
Thanks again Cathy!
Here’s a website that can meet all your “gift” giving needs – one that needs to be shared. Whether the recipient is male, female, hunter, knitter, sports enthusiast or crossword fanatic; whether the recipient is the birthday person, hostess, “appreciated”, or needs a pick me up – these baskets can satisfy all persons involved. I have been the recipient on two such occasions, and have used the service myself a few times.
Each was a positive experience. Designs For You can put together a gift basket – one that reflects a personal touch. I would have to say, Designs For You would be a great business that other businesses could use for promotional events or perhaps job appreciation gifts as well. This entrepreneur takes great pride in her work- it begins with the order, the outstanding presentation, followed by caring packaging and ending with a great delivery!!
A very positive experience on both the receiving and sending end of things, one that truly should be shared, just as I have done.
We have been fortunate recipients of your Christmas Holiday “surprise package” for the past 4 to 5 years. It has become synonymous with the cheer heralding the final days just before Dec. 25th. We can just feel the spirit of Christmas when your beautiful basket comes through our front door. The only sensation that resembles the previous years, is the anticipation of what Cathy has selected to create another surprise. The goodies hidden behind the sparkling wrapping are all useful and fun to have for the person who likes to spoil their guests or just indulge themselves in treats you don’t often see or buy on your regular trip to the markets. Sharon and I really enjoy savouring each item as we always know they be fun and delicious treats reflecting Cathy’s excellent taste for the finer things you may dream up for a particular holiday or special picnic occasion.

Cathy has created several baskets for me these past few years, all of them beautifully designed with such expertise. She goes the extra mile by sending pictures making sure it’s perfect. The last basket she made up was for my daughter and son-in law’s anniversary.
She did such a beautiful job, even including their wedding picture.
Keep up the good work Cathy!!
I was completely impressed by “Designs For You”
Cathy went above and beyond my expectations.
The basket was created exactly to my liking and was delivered in record time!
I had photos of the product prior to delivery and was thrilled with the appearance and content.
I can’t wait until I have a reason to order another one.
I contacted Cathy at Designs For You just before the holiday season in December. I found the company after doing a search on the internet for gift baskets right in Kamloops, B.C.
The first thing that I liked about the company was the individuality of each gift basket and the ability to tailor to your budget as the sender but also to whomever the recipient would be. I contacted Cathy over the phone from two provinces over and she was friendly, organized and happy to make my holiday gift giving even easier.
The basket was put together by the following day with pictures sent to me over email so I knew exactly what my friends would be receiving. The basket was delivered on Christmas Eve when they were home. She even wrote a personalized card from me.
The gift basket was a great hit!! The entire process was a positive, efficient and unique experience and not only would I used Cathy’s company again in the future, but I would recommend her to anyone else.
Thank You for creating such a lovely Christmas basket for my relatives. I really appreciated the time you took getting to know more about my relatives in order to customize the basket just to their tastes! WHAT A PRESENTATION! The lovely “urban cowboy” gift basket was a perfect mix of cowboy chic and delectable delights!
Hi Cathy, I was very pleased with the baskets that I ordered from you. These became very appreciated gifts that I gave out to companies that I had dealt with. I would not hesitate to use your service again.
