Basket Mania of NY joins #Operation Gifting, a global campaign by The Gift Basket Industry to support local health care workers.

By Jules Lavallee

Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) 4/27/20 – In the spirit of support and collaboration in these difficult times, Basket Mania of NY is delivering gifting goodness to our healthcare workers. #OperationGifting “It is important to me because my city and state have been hit so hard and I have had to visit someone close to me after surgery back in January and saw how hard the healthcare workers work and care! I also love my city and state and want it to come back to what it was just a short time ago. I also care about sending out care packages nationwide because the whole country as well as globally has been impacted in some shape or form.”- Elaine Langsam, Owner of Basket Mania

“It is important to put smiles on people’s faces, especially, at a “ surreal” time that we are all experiencing. If I can help in even a small way by making boxes filled with snacks for healthcare workers and running a “Nominate Your Mom” contest for Mother’s Day by presenting deserving moms with a spa basket, then I am happy!”

Tell us about #Operation Gifting 


The only way to deliver gifting goodness to our healthcare workers during the COVID-19 crisis is by shipping. Some states will allow in person deliveries but locally we have to ship. 

We are sending out boxes with our #OperationGifting blue and white design. Our boxes come in different sizes and are filled with packaged snacks. I have sent out boxes locally as well as to other states. People can also go to my website and purchase a box of any size and it will be filled and sent out.


Let’s be Creative! How are your gift baskets unique?

They are unique because I think out of the box and am not stuck on a certain kind of container. If I see something that is unique and eye catching I create a design around it.
