Every month we have 2 x ‘Daily Dispatch’ Winners and then in the lead up to special occasions we also run extra Competitions, such as at Christmas Time & Mother’s Day. So by my calculations that means we have 2 x Christmas…

Bespoke Verse Adding Rhyme To Our Gift Baskets

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…

When Lynne was tasked with updating many of the “Personality” and “Occasion” themed gift baskets in our range, she headed off to the Spring Fair for gift inspiration and was delighted to come across many great new products that could work really well in gift baskets.

Teeny Tiny Baby Clothes: Baby Gift Baskets

July 18, 2016

With only 4 weeks to go until my new arrival is here I thought perhaps it was time to buy a few new baby essentials. It’s so different from last time when we needed to get what seemed like absolutely everything! A never ending list of “essentials”, many of which you don’t really need at all. We spent ages researching the things we would definitely need like the best pram,…


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…
