With my cousin’s little girl’s birthday on Sunday, you’d think I would be trying to spot some potential gift ideas out in the warehouse to. Except….nope, I completely forgot and the upstairs storage area where all the non-food items (ie. toys, pamper goods etc) are kept is being shuffled around so I can’t even go upstairs for ideas because I’d just get in the way and be trampled underfoot or…

Last week, I was away to Poland for my summer holiday, and boy was it warm over there….. and wet too… And it seems like I brought the rainy weather back over here – whoops! However, it seems like the rainy weather is finally disappearing because today is warm and so far not a single drop of rain in sight. And with the sun finally coming out, it makes me…

At this moment in writing, my cousin is currently in hospital having her second child. So in between all my basket and hamper picture taking, my phone kept being bombarded with messages as all the relatives and friends are popping into the group chat to see if the baby arrived yet. So it is that when I saw a fruit basket in the warehouse which is being sent to a…

Hands up here, who is having a very bad hayfever season this year? Well, my hand is way, way up and up faster than the speed of light (if possible) My hayfever had been awwwwwful. I feel like I’m walking around with a box of tissues permanently armed to my side, and right eye is itchy and running so bad that the skin around it is a little scaley. Urrrrgh,…

I’m sure the Birthday Favourites basket had been on our Daily Dispatch blog multiple times, it’s a given since it’s one of our popular birthday baskets and this particular version of it had been in our range for a long while now. Goes to show that once a basket is perfect, you can’t really update or change it much further. But I do believe we haven’t really seen the Birthday…

Summer Fruit Gift Baskets Scorching Good Value

The arrival of Summer is good news in terms of our Fresh Fruit Gift Baskets, as it means certain varieties of fruit are available once again. Although we offer fabulous fruit baskets all year round from only £34.99, there are certain ingredients which are harder to get in the Winter months. Cherries, pears, bananas, blackberries, peaches and nectarines are either more readily available or are also usually higher quality at this…

I’m always a sucker for the fresh fruit & flowers baskets as they always look amazing & smell even better! I had selected our Sunshine Fruit hamper to showcase as it is such a beautiful sunny day. It was ordered by a daughter in the US as a Father’s Day gift for her daddy in Galway. I then got sidetracked by the Sparkling Fruit hamper as it was so colourful…

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…

Happy first day of June! Let’s hope the weather becomes warmer from this point on! Though if you’re like me and rather dread warm weather because it meant prime hayfever season, I guess you’re probably not looking forward to it too much. In fact, here’s a picture I drew did a few years ago (excuse the messy linework) on how I feel about this season. So it is that I…

My mum, who works in a supermarket, came home last night with, I kid you not, at least 9 punnets of strawberries. She got them all at a reduced price in work because they were past their display date and really do look rather worse for wear, I think she sat and picked through about 2-3 punnets and threw away half of them because they were smushed up and mould…

A year ago, if you had told me I would be joining the adult colouring book craze that had swept (and is still sweeping) the world by storm, I would have given you a look so skeptical that you could take a picture of it and put it in the dictionary as the definition of ‘skeptical’. A year on…. yeah, I joined it. Very unabashedly too. One second I only…

Is Coconut Actually A Nut?

This week Roma was chatting with a customer via live chat who was slightly anxious about picking a gift basket which might contain nuts. The recipient she was sending the gift to had a nut allergy and so Roma recommended selecting a fresh fruit basket, to help rule out any baked goods or biscuits being in it that could well contain traces of nuts. We have such a wide selection…
