rhyme time feature
January 16, 2017

During the Summer of 2016, Lynne got in touch with the lovely people behind Bespoke Verse as she was interested in adding some of their designs to our “Inspired By” Family Themed Gift Baskets. They create “poetry-themed prints, goods and gifts that say just the right things with rhyme.” Bespoke Verse was founded by Joanna Miller and she writes all the ‘off the shelf’ poems herself.  The family business was founded…

Thoughtful and Trendy Tea Towels.

September 22, 2016

Bespoke Verse – The Gift of Rhyme.  Team BG have been hard at work, having researched and sourced these charming Tea Towels to add some jazz to our Gift Baskets. Bespoke Verse was born (not surprisingly) out of a poem. On her wedding day, founder and Oxford graduate Joanna Miller made a rhyming speech that brought the house down. Countless bespoke commissions for poetry began flooding in, and soon Joanna was hiring assistants…

Sealing The Deal With A Gift Card Message

July 14, 2016

A vital part of sending a gift basket is the message that accompanies it, as more often than not the gift is being shipped directly to the end receiver. We take care to ensure every gift we send has a message accompanying it to ensure the recipient knows who has sent it to them. If we notice a customer hasn’t included a message we email them to double check. Sometimes they…
