Basket of the Day – 10.02.17

With Valentine’s Day just on the horizon, we had started dispatching some of the Valentine orders a little earlier as requested. As such, the warehouse was chock-a-bloc filled with romance, love and sweet nothings in baskets.

I accidentally wrote the gift baskets blog into the gift hampers blog post – whoops! Nothing a quick title change and edit can’t sort though, no worries. Sometimes, I have difficulty finding enough of a certain category to write about. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that we don’t have enough baskets or hampers of each category being sent out, it’s just that the warehouse team are very quick and…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 24.03.16

Just before I wandered into the warehouse today, I had to organise a special Saturday delivery for a corporate client. While we were booking in with the couriers for the delivery of her hamper, we noticed that one of the address was going to a Chinese restaurant in Canterbury.
