For several years now, Ace Hardware Corporation has used Vicki's services for gift baskets. Vicki is prompt, on the ball, and a joy to work with, but most importantly, her gift baskets are nothing short of creative and awe-inspiring. When a gift basket is delivered, everyone in the office flocks to it and admires what Vicki has created - they are always a huge hit (and eye candy)! Whatever the occasion, whether for a retirement or birthday, Vicki makes her gift baskets to fit the individual's wants and personality, based on whatever we tell her (sometimes we give lots of info, other times barely any). Either way, no gift basket is the same! The appearance of the gift baskets are equally as remarkable as whatever treats/goodies are inside.
I would highly, highly recommend using Gifts of Distinction! We are always extremely pleased with the results, and our employees love them.

I have been delighted to send gifts from Vicki for more than 12 years. She has the most creative ideas. I've sent everything from business gifts to bridal shower gifts that Vicki has made. One time, she helped with a particularly difficult request. A friend had been expecting twins, and lost the babies late in the pregnancy. I wanted to show sympathy, but had no idea what to do. Vicki made the most wonderful keepsake basket to help memorialize the babies. She always knows just what to do - whether to make dozens of small gifts for business or one or two large gifts for a special personal occasion.

I want to Thank You so very much for your help last week with the beautiful Gourmet Basket you prepared for my family and I to show our sympathy. Not only did I receive your kind note with a picture and description of the contents - I also got very positive feedback from my sister who was there for the service. She and all the others who were there were so impressed. I certainly gave them your information and sang your praises for the wonderful job - and your Customer Service - which is incomparable.
Thank You once again for helping so graciously during a difficult time. I will pass along your information with pleasure as I know whoever comes to you will be in good hands.

Sometimes I think it's not fair when I send one of Vicki's gift baskets. I call her, she does all the work, but I get all the credit. My gift recipients always tell me how much they appreciated my efforts to put together such a nice personalized gift basket. But, all I did -- was call Vicki at Gifts of Distinction.

As the Chef Concierge of a hotel of distinction at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Chicago, when I need a gift of distinction, I have found Vicki Baker's "Gifts of Distinction" a valuable resource when the request goes beyond the typical amenity that our hotel has available. Vicki has been very helpful with recommendations and the feedback I have received has been very positive from my guests. She has gone out of her way to fulfill requests and she always takes the time to thank me for sending her our business.

Hi Vicki. Thank you so much for your wonderful/professional help getting closing gifts to our clients. We get emails like this every time a gift is ordered from you. You make it so easy to send out the personalized ceramic envelopes. Our clients love them!
"I opened your gift yesterday after arriving home here in Colorado. What a surprise! I love it and I love my new Casita. How did you know that our family needs an attractive place to put the mail? We have it scattered everywhere."
Thank you Vicki!
