Personalised Valentine’s Day Gift Baskets For Her

February 10, 2017

I blogged last week about our Valentine’s Day Gift Baskets For Him as we have found in the past they are the most popular. Finding a romantic, but practical gift for a man can be pretty tricky and so a gift basket full of manly snacks, cheese, meats and drinks can hit just the spot. Of course we don’t want to leave all you lovely ladies out, and looking out in our…


Busy Month Of Birthday Celebrations, But Which Is Most Popular?

February 3, 2017

I think I wrote in a previous blog a bit about which month is the busiest for birthdays, and if my memory serves me correctly it was September time & in particular the date of 26th September. I remember as that was when my first son Rowan was due to arrive into the world, but then he didn’t show up until 4th October. I did a quite bit of research for…

Happy Chinese New Year, January 28th 2017

January 27, 2017

Another year had gone by, and another new year celebration is literally right in front of us. Now, usually at this time of the year, I would be moaning and grumbling about the massive amount of cleaning that needed done before we enter the New Year. However, this year must be my lucky year, because I was away for the weekend just there to meet a friend down in London…


Australia Day Celebrations|Congratulations Little Brother On Your Citizenship

January 26, 2017

BasketsGalore has a special connection with Australia, as it was there that Lynne (and our Aunt Liz) came up with the idea of a gift delivery service. She (and our brother Neil) lived in Australia for a while & found it difficult and expensive to send gifts home to the UK and Ireland while living there and so set up a website to deliver gifts on behalf of customers abroad….


Feeling A Little Bit Blue This Monday?

January 16, 2017

So not only is today Monday, it is in fact BLUE MONDAY. Yes that’s right, it’s officially the most depressing day of the year. Well for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere anyway. I suppose it’s the post Christmas/Holiday blues, combined with the dark days, cold weather, credit card bills etc that contribute to this. We were chatting about this in the office and coming up with a good…

Hello again folks, I am back again today as Kate is très busy with all the VAT work needing to be done, I would describe her desk as almost a winter wonderland, as the white paper work is sprinkled all over! Poor Kate! So I took over her Daily Dispatch blog today however, the Warehouse girls worked extremely fast so I was only able to capture a few snaps. Luckily, it…

New Years Resolutions – Have You Given Up Already?

January 6, 2017

It only occurred to me yesterday that I hadn’t actually made any New Years Resolutions yet, well not officially. Subconsciously I must have though, as Lynne & I have booked ourselves in to try a new Trampolining Fitness Class next week. I’m also taking a Body Combat Class this evening after my gym membership had been on hold for a while since having my son in August. So I suppose…
