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…

Wowee, April is flying by! That being said, the weather still doesn’t feel like sprint up here in our head office in Northern Ireland. I don’t know about other parts of the UK, but over here, it seems like the weather cannot make up its mind as to whether to present us with chilly wintery winds or lukewarm spring sun – usually, both at the same time. If your weather…

I have a very faint feeling that I had covered my chosen fruit basket of today recently. But a quick flick through the past few blogs I’ve written says otherwise? So if it’s a repeat, I apologise. If not, yay! Anyways, I was supposed to take a photo of a customised fruit basket today, but the girls were waiting for a particular product, the clock is ticking and I just…

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…

Wow-wee, lookie here, I’m actually doing my turn on the dispatch blog post this week! For those who had been catching up on our daily blog posts, you would have learnt that I haven’t really been very well the past…. er… month now, I think? I’d been in and out of the office as I get bouts where I’m feeling well enough to drag myself in, then there were the…

Last, but not least, is this fabulous fruit gift basket which is again an early Easter present from a family in Victoria, Australia for a lady in Addlestone, Surrey. We aren’t sure if they are friends or relatives, but she is perhaps a Great Aunt as they mentioned being patient to give her time to answer the door when delivery takes place. We hope she enjoys this “Keeping It Real…
