Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Fruit & Flower Gifts 24.08.17

This time last year, I think I was obsessed with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries because of the summer weather. This year though, my fruit cravings are plums, peaches and nectarines. As such, this Classic Fruit basket simply looks divine to me. Plums! Yummy yummy plums! I wonder if I could pinch one or two for lunch…. nah, just kidding, I brought my own. What would the team think of me…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket of the Day 16.08.17

Is this going to turn into a week of a Kate and Laura Daily Dispatch blogs? It’s almost like seems like it is. Anyways, today is much busy! Very busy! I didn’t get any of my own work again! It was all tracking this order, calling this hospital, calling this customer, hunting down that house number, organising that re-delivery, emailing this courier, and that courier etc. In fact, it’s a…

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…

I saw Andrea had been doing one blog for the daily dispatches recently and was wondering maybe if I should experiment with it and see how it goes. Well, I say ‘experiment’ but really, I am just too hungry for lunch to have the energy to think up 3 different blog posts into paragraphs. Plus, this way means that you readers don’t have to sit and read (or scroll) through…

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…

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…

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…
