Meet the CEO, Lauren Hunter

Lauren Hunter is an incredible entrepreneur with a generous heart and a passion for gift giving! She graduated college with a Bachelors from Palm Beach Atlantic University in FL. Soon after love brought Lauren to Ohio where she married her husband, Derek Hunter. The couple has been happily married for two years, and they are proud doggy parents to Happy Hunter. Lauren started Baskets with Love in 2017 with the mission to show love through custom gift baskets for events and special occasions. Lauren hired a small team and has grown the business tremendously with her consistent networking and continuous energy. BWL became members of the Aurora and Chagrin Falls Chamber of Commerce where they proudly support local businesses. Lauren also is a enthusiastic member of the Upsides of Downs, where she uses her down syndrome as a light to help other business with exceptionalities. Whether it’s designing gift baskets for a Gala or raising money to give Christmas baskets to the elderly living in a nursing home, Lauren and the BWL team proudly spread love one basket at a time.

We are here to make a difference through gift giving! 

Join the Baskets With Love Team by support their next #giving outreach to the Upsides of Downs by donating an Easter Basket to a child with exceptionalities.

Our goal is to honor 100 children with the love and joy of the season in a tangible way. Your Basket Sponsorship is needed at $35 per basket! The BWL Team will manufacture and personally deliver the 100 baskets with a warm smile and kind hug! These baskets will each be filled with sensory and motor skill games, arts and crafts, sweets and treats, spiritual words of encouragement, all packaged festively by Baskets with Love! See photo above for an awesome example of what Lauren made!
