Welcome to our community of giving!
At Bulging Baskets Vancouver our community is your community. We support small businesses, get involved in our neighbourhoods, and spread kindness and appreciation to those close to us. Giving thanks and showing we care is what we do best. We have assembled an amazing group of farmers, chefs, independent shop owners, and artisans who bring their dedication and quality to us locally through the Bulging Baskets Vancouver line of giftware.
When ordering with us you are supporting Canadian enterprise and helping create a sustainable local economy.
Bulging Baskets Vancouver was created a short time ago when a friend complained to us that it's difficult to find nice gifts as a thank you; We stepped up and offered to assemble the baskets for them. Our friend brought us bags of snack foods, stationery, and gifts that we loaded into wicker baskets and wrapped in cellophane and, voilà - our first set of products were sent out in the city. The baskets looked great, but brimming with items they were far too pretty, didn't like to be handled much, and couldn't be easily shipped. We thought - we have to get all of this into boxes! We recruited an amazing visual designer and asked her to design packaging boxes and all of the print items for our business. Now began the quest to find local suppliers whom make the best of the best quality edibles.
From sweet to savoury and gourmet to gluten free, we had you in mind and thus we share our love for giving and enjoying what our local artisans have to offer.

Meet Ari Ron, the co-creator and operator of Bulging Baskets Vancouver.
Born and raised in Vancouver, Ari has an absolute love and appreciation for the unique culture and world renowned culinary presence his city has to offer.
Obtaining a degree in Culinary Arts, as well a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts from the Culinary Institute of America, Napa Valley, Ari is no stranger to fine foods and confectioneries.
He is also no stranger to the media, as a joke he placed for sale, a $4.5 million gingerbread home on Craigslist, and it went viral overnight with articles stretching to China and beyond. -He still gets calls to see if it's for sale!
One day a conversation ensued between Ari and his neighbour, Ari was asked if he could make some gift baskets for a reasonable price and Ari having absolutely no experience whatsoever, of course said yes. Thus the beginning of "Bulging Baskets Vancouver".
Researching products online he found that Vancouver, and the lower mainland has absolutely amazing, local, ready to eat, excellent quality products that unfortunately you don't see in very many large retail stores.
This frustration lead Ari to use only the best of the best products, locally made, created right here for all of you to enjoy and we are sure you will fall in love with what Bulging Baskets Vancouver has to offer.
