A recent "Create Your Own" order caught my eye when I saw the combination of products selected. There was a mixture of fancy chocolates, sharing snacks, boys toys and pamper products so I wondered what the occasion must be.
A quick search for the order details concluded that it was in fact a sympathy basket for a mum & her 2 sons. Sympathy gift baskets originated in the US, but have grown in popularity here as they are not just thoughtful like flowers, they are also practical and last longer.
On this occasion a deep linen wicker basket was selected as the base, into which went:
Snacks and drinks including - Skellig's Non-Alcoholic Mixed Truffles, Tyrrell's Seasalt Popcorn, Apple and Raspberry Juice and Millionaire Shortbread to be shared between the family member.
Our customer, based in London, then selected the gorgeous Microwaveable Body Wrap by Aroma Home. You pop this scented wrap into the microwave to heat it and then use the warmth against your neck or body to soothe any tensions away.
Next into the basket was Lego City, a construction set designed for easy building for ages 5-12 years. A city works vehicle comprising of either a cement mixer, a fire engine, a petrol tanker or a street cleaner.
Next was the Silverlit Sky Thunderbird Helicopter, s a 3-channel ready-to-fly 2.4 GHz radio control helicopter, suitable for operation indoors and outdoors.
Finally our customer opted to upgrade their complimentary gift card to a luxury Sympathy Gift Card for their personalised message.
Here is a photo of the thoughtful basket they created:
Their gift would then have been gift wrapped & decorated before making it's way for dispatch.
We hope this gift conveyed heartfelt condolences to the family receiving it.
