Christmas Hampers 2017 Coming Soon…

It’s hard to believe we’re almost half way through September already! Just out of interest I looked up how long it is until Christmas and it’s just over 100 days! We LOVE Christmas at BasketsGalore, as it’s our busiest time of year and there’s such a buzz about the place. Over the past few months we’ve been busy planning, sourcing, creating, pricing and photographing our Christmas Hampers for 2017. We’re…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 24.08.17

It’s currently around 3 in the afternoon, which is perfect afternoon tea time. So of course, if you send me out into the warehouse for photos at this time of the day, I’m just going to zero in on the goodies you would typically accompany a cup of tea with. So it should be no big surprise that I came back with a hamper filled with bakery goods, right? This…

Okay, so we all know how much I love mango, right? Wait? You didn’t know? Gasp! I even have made a tag on this blog so that every time I mention the word mango, it will be tagged. I even wrote a blog all about it way back when! ….even though I am very mildly allergic to mango… but hey, I am allergic to a lot of things; in fact,…

It just seems like some weird luck that one day my sister is begging me to bring home a chocolate cake to satisfy her chocolate craving, I went out and bought said cake, then of course two chocolate cakes would then land on my lap the very next day, for free. Granted, the free cakes were given to me because they were too close to their sell by date to…

More than a few times, I had spoken of how much I marvel at the warehouse team’s ability to pack everything into one container so perfectly. They surely must be amazing in puzzle games, Jenga blocks and Tetris. Each time I dare unpack a hamper just a liiiiiiittle bit, and even if I memorise exactly where each item was supposed to go, it still doesn’t seem to quite fit that…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket Dispatches 29.06.17

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…

There was supposedly a ‘heatwave’ yesterday? How had everybody been dealing with that? Can’t say it was anything special where our head office is based; all we got was a muggy dull cloudy weather that’s just enough to run around in a T-shirt. Honestly, last week was warmer, I felt. But on the other hand, my cousin in London claims she is being barbequed under the sun because it’s that…

Typical, before lunch, I had something witty to open this blog post with, but then my stomach was growling and demanding food, so I went on lunch, then came back and completely forgot what I wanted to write. So, typical, yes? I remembered it was something about dads and cheese. So whilst I cannot remember what I meant to write, we’ll just swing with that topic. I find that most…

BasketsGalore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 01.06.17

Today, I chose the Milestone Anniversary Hamper as my hamper of the day. It’s a (one year) late wedding gift from Stephen in Carshalton, UK. Why? Because it was one of the confusing points of Tuesday morning for me. See, we had somehow or the other mislaid one half of the paperwork for this hamper, so both Damian and I were scratching our heads about it alongside briefly panicking on…

The team had been commenting on the recent extra popularity of our The Gourmet: Oceania hamper, So I thought, okay! I’ll go take a picture of that one and take about it in the blog. Fate didn’t have it in me with that hamper though. Because I walked by a different hamper and maybe because it was just before my lunch and I was extra peckish or something, but I…

“Sending you a little love and TLC through the mail” That was the message I spied on the gift card as I walked around hunting down bits and bobs for this hamper – The Gourmet: Chilled. The Gourmet is one of our bestsellers, and this variant is the Chilled version, containing chilled meats in the form of salmon, air-dried beef and lamb. All three meats complements the three kinds of…

And now, back to your usual scheduling of three dispatch blogs a day. Well, I said that but tomorrow is Friday which is just Basket of the Day. Haha! Maybe next week it would be calmer and we can return to three blogs a day instead, though it really depends on how much work there is that day. Speaking of work, I am dramatically behind in the accounts side of…
