Words can’t describe the thoughtfulness of David and Janet of Cape Cod Specialties. It’s no surprise they are in the gift business. I had Cape Cod Specialties put together a gift for an old friend whom I have been to busy to see in quite a while. Not only did the package go out quickly, but because my friend was in a nearby town, they did an in person delivery. All in all, I am incredibly satisfied with my experience with Cape Cod Specialties and the wonderful couple that own it. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone, especially people like myself who don’t have a lot of spare time.
~ David Dougherty, Shep Hardscape Services

“Every aspect of working with Cape Cod Specialties in Chatham, MA is a great pleasure. David and Janet are just the nicest people to work with. They are flexible, accommodating, knowledgeable, and sincere. Their products are quite impressive and made of great quality. They are certainly a favorite amongst our family, friends, and raffle winners! Their website is wonderful, but I never hesitate on an opportunity to call and speak with them directly. For gifts and prizes both large and small in baskets, totes or boxes, Cape Cod Specialties will take good care of you!”

Many of our customers are summer residents and are just thrilled when they receive a canvas Cape Cod tote bag full of local goodies. Not to mention a ‘beach bag’ for next summer! It’s also a great way to introduce folks to all of the great local fare that Cape Cod has to offer. David & Janet are wonderful to work with and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results!”

The extra effort packaging them was appreciated, so the condition upon receipt was very, very good. I am optimistic that we will find ourselves back in your area, and would not hesitate to contact you again.”

“AAAAAAH! THAT’S WHAT I AND THE 4 OF MY ROOMMATES IN THE ROOM SAID WHEN I OPENED UP THE BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT EVER! Thank you so much! That was the best postal package ever received! I wish I’d had a camera to take pictures of everyone’s faces when the box was opened (which was adorable by the way). The gift came just in time for when we celebrate the holidays in college before everyone has to study for finals and then leave for home. You are so thoughtful and gave me the best ‘warm, fuzzy feeling’ :)”
