Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Fruit & Flower Gifts 11.04.17

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…

It’s a little ironic that I’m writing this dispatch blog about fruit which is considered healthy, whilst I am working my way through a chocolate donut. But hey, somebody have to help get rid of the donuts we got for Victoria’s last day today, right? Don’t mind if I do. Anyways, my chocolatey treat aside, let’s look at the healthy treats. Be Good To Yourself is all about treating yourself…

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…

Sometimes, you start a post and words for the opening paragraph just comes naturally to your fingers, almost like magic. Sometimes, like today, you sit there for a grand 5 minutes and you come up with absolutely nothing. I briefly considered going on about mangoes because it’s the fruit blog of the day, but I’m pretty sure you have all heard and learnt already that I’m pretty obsessed with them…

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…

Happy Chinese New Year, January 28th 2017

January 27, 2017

Another year had gone by, and another new year celebration is literally right in front of us. Now, usually at this time of the year, I would be moaning and grumbling about the massive amount of cleaning that needed done before we enter the New Year. However, this year must be my lucky year, because I was away for the weekend just there to meet a friend down in London…

Brrrr, the weather had just been getting colder and colder the past few days. To the extent that whenever the heating is not turned on in my house, my cat just curls into the tightest, smallest fluffy ball he possibly could (a feat, since he is by no means small, nor elegant, nor smart, nor skinny, nor nimble nor…. okay, he’s a very dim and grumpy cat). It’s weather like…

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…
