Birthday Gifts: June Busy With Birthday Celebrations

I’ve always loved having a June birthday as it meant there was a chance of sunny weather & an outdoor celebration. As a child I was able to get a bouncy castle in the back garden for one of my birthdays and it’s one of my favourite memories. As an adult we usually have a birthday barbecue, although a few of these have been rainy despite it being Summer. I…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 18.05.17

The team had been commenting on the recent extra popularity of our The Gourmet: Oceania hamper, So I thought, okay! I’ll go take a picture of that one and take about it in the blog. Fate didn’t have it in me with that hamper though. Because I walked by a different hamper and maybe because it was just before my lunch and I was extra peckish or something, but I…

It is of course just my luck that the moment I finished taking all the photos and had sat back down at my desk that somebody would come running in and tell me one of the baskets I had photographed is going to be swapped out for another. Oh bummer, does this mean I have to take a new photo? I pondered about it for a little while, then decided…
