Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket of the Day 17.08.17

And it’s me again! Yes, it really does seem like this week is a Laura and Kate blog week! Can’t help it, it’s summer so naturally people are off to the holidays or enjoying the limited sunshine our British weather could give us. Speaking of sunshine, I was speaking with somebody who was definitely NOT enjoying the sunshine – my grandma! She’s currently in Hong Kong and the sweltering heat…

It’s been quite a long while since I had last featured the Flowers & Treats basket on this blog, so here it is: For a birthday girl in Dublin tomorrow, this flowering plant basket is everything a lady could wish for. True, it doesn’t really have fruit in it, but hey, it has flowers so it’s still suitable for this blog, correct? Not only does this basket have a flowering…

The assembly area of the warehouse is packed with gift baskets today. I didn’t even know where and how to begin which baskets to feature for which blog! Just take a look at the giant queue of baskets still waiting to be put through the shrink-wrap machine. And on the other side, the girls are still assembling more baskets! It’s a Father’s Day baskets madness out there! I think it…

I was rather spoilt for choice today in regards of flowers and fruit baskets. Sometimes, I stroll in and there is not a single fruit and flower basket in sight because they are either still be made up by the team, or I was too slow and they boxed them up already. Today though, ho ho ho, there was at least 6 for me to choose from! Do I go…

With one blogger down, we had recently decided to change up the dispatch format to just one basket/hamper per dispatch blog rather than three. Okie-dokie, on the plus side, it meant taking photographs of the products are a LOT faster now that we’re just dealing with 3 baskets instead of 9, also you won’t feel guilty about holding up a team of warehouse staff from their packing duties simply because…

Coming to an end of today’s Daily Dispatch Blog, we have the Fruit & Flower Gifts section. Fruit and Flowers have long been a favourite customer request as they lend themselves to a multitude of gifting occasions including wanting to say ‘Thank You’ and to express ‘Condolences’ or relay a message of ‘Sympathy’. Colourful flowers are always a welcome distraction, adding a splash of colour to any environment, and the taste and…

We don’t seem to have a lot of fruit baskets going today. Though, of course, now that I wrote that sentence out, there is probably going to be a flood of fruit orders sweeping in after lunch. However, whilst we do not have a lot of fruit orders, we do have a couple number of baskets with flowering plants going today. In fact, so many that we have to send…

Hello, long time no see/talk/write etc. It had been, what? A month? A month and a half? Two months? Something like that. Usually in January, I am buried underneath a mountain of December paperwork and could only be tempted out by five things – home time, lunch, tea, bathroom breaks (in breaks, I mean sprinting down the corridor at top speed and almost colliding with anybody who steps foot in…

It’s already October and we’re seeing Christmas products in supermarket aisles already over here. Usually, I’d mumble, grumble and complain to the nearest person about how Halloween isn’t even over and we’re already having Christmas things, but really, I cannot do that anymore. Why? Because in Baskets Galore, Christmas sales organising starts way before October! Already, I’m in elbow deep in spreadsheets trying to calculate new baskets, guess-timate sales so…
