Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Baskets 28.07.15

Spoon! That was my first thought when I walked over to the baskets today, because the very first basket I clapped my eyes on was one from our new wedding range and it had one of the La De Da silver teaspoons in it. As you can see, I cannot resist taking the spoon out of the packaging, laid it out with bunch of our fabric flowers, add a messaged…

New Chocolates On The Scene

Normally we’re quite good at spotting the arrival of new samples or products in the office at BasketsGalore, as this means we can schedule a #TasteTestThursday session. However it came to our attention that a few new chocolate based products slipped by us in December, due to how hectic it is around here. We think it is only right that we should get to sample these now to ensure we…

Vicki in New Zealand had ordered this wonderful Live, Laugh, Love hamper for her mum and…

The Other (Important) Side of the Packet – Part 2

August 26, 2015

Okay, with myself heading off for my very late summer holidays on Monday, everything is rush, rush, rush. Spreadsheets needed done, things needed calculated, sales receipts needs accounting for and I had given up all hopes of even considering filing them away properly (usually by order date because it means I can look up those weird orders with weird VAT figures easier) and in the back of my mind, I’m…
