April 27, 2017

We got a lovely surprise yesterday when Sylwia called into the office with both her boys, and we got to meet lovely baby Antoni. It’s hard to believe he is almost 3 months old already!

Bathtime Bliss: Let Your Troubles Just Melt Away

When we were away over the Easter weekend we stayed in a beautiful lodge, located in the grounds of a popular hotel. The lodge had everything you could wish for in terms of a holiday home, with the exception of one thing – a bath. I think this was probably because of space, as they had managed to fit 5 en-suite rooms into the design of the new lodge. Then there…

Flowering Plants Make The Perfect Delivery

When BasketsGalore was just a baby, Lynne & Selina started by delivering gifts locally and as well as gift baskets they also provided bouquets as these could be hand delivered. I managed to track down some pictures of their creations in the BG archives, showing floral gifts for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. When BasketsGalore moved online in 2003, this significantly widened the delivery reach available to us as we were…

With lots of options to choose from,…

BasketsGalore Food Finding Fun At IFE 2017

April 3, 2017

Some of the team “forced” themselves to attend the International Food & Drink Event at ExCel in London a couple of weeks ago, while the rest of us held the fort back here in the lead up to Mother’s Day. We imagine it was a tough task taste testing potential new products to include in our Gift Baskets and Christmas Hampers, but somebody has to do it eh? The photography for…

So by my calculations that means we have 2 x Christmas…
