Baskets Galore Customer Gifts – Gift Baskets of the Day 07.09.17

Okay, so I was totally prep to doing 3 dispatch blogs today. I even went out and took pictures of three different baskets/hampers. But it turns out, nope, my workload is chock-a-block full and I’m pressed for time. I have two months of sales and VAT (July and August) for two different currencies to work out, the new GTA pricing to sort out with Neil (who’s away for his dentist…

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…

Sometimes, when somebody is sick, the relative or their carer is rather forgotten in the process of sending get well wishes. It’s not done on purpose, just that people are all rushing to express their concern to the one suffering the most (the patient) that those next to them are accidental left aside at the moment. So it brings me big smiles and warm fuzzies to see a gift basket…

Some days, you go to the warehouse assembly area and your eyes just get drawn to a specific basket in particular for a multitude of reasons (eg. it’s a rare purchase, the colours, the size, the gift message, or it really, really, really sang to you that day); sometimes, you go into an multiple baskets sing to you. I’m the latter today. Today, I was eeny-meeny-minie-mo-ing between 2 different pregnancy…

Sorry but you’re stuck with me again for your Daily Dispatch Blog today, as Kate is currently enjoying herself on holiday in Poland. Kate always takes such wonderful photos and arty shots, so I will do my best in a somewhat limited time frame. I took a risk today in not choosing any of our first batch of Gift Baskets to photograph and feature. I decided to take a gamble…

You just need to take a look at our “Get Well”gift section to see all the options you can go with, many of which involve a combination of all of the above! And what…

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…

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…

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…

Hands up here who is in a rather dire need of a massage? I know I am! Carrying all those baby things my pregnant sister bought during our shopping trip over the weekend must have done a number on my shoulders, they are positively aching! As such, I am looking at the pamper and spa gift baskets longingly today. Apart from the normal premade spa and pamper baskets, we have…
