We frequently get emailed with special requests, such as changing a certain product in a basket or adding another one in.
Quite often we get asked for a specific brand of product that we are happy to source locally and include in a basket.
Occasionally we get more specific requests for items we need to order in. We are also happy to do this, but just need a few days notice to turn these orders around.
One organised lady Jennifer, residing in the Middle East, got in touch with us towards the end of February with an idea for a special Mother's Day Gift for her mum back in Ireland.
Jennifer wanted to add a picture in a frame and a diary/notebook to a gift basket for her mum. As she was so well prepared we had plenty of time and so offered to source the items online and have them delivered to ourselves. This way the items came straight to us & she didn't have to worry about having them sent to a friend or family member, who would then have to forward them onto us. She gave us a few pointers as to the type of notebook she was after and we were able to find one & send her the link. She then approved the choice and then sent us the link to the photo frame she had selected. Within a couple of days the frame and notebook were delivered to us and Jennifer had emailed a photograph for us to print out & include.
All she had to do then was browse through all our gift baskets and hampers and choose the prefect one for her mum. Rather than picking a Mother's Day gift basket, she opted for our popular Artisan Fayre hamper. It includes organic smoked salmon, traditional ham, 2 cheeses and accompaniments. The Skelligs handmade chocolate truffles then complete the basket nicely.
When the day arrived to assemble the gift basket to get it ready for dispatch, we captured a quick snap below of how it looked with the extra items in it. The basket was then gift wrapped and decorated in ribbon. Finally, a Mother's Day gift card featuring Jennifer's personal message to her mum was added before the gift was boxed and the delivery label added.
We hope you agree this was a lovely gift created by Jennifer. She also opted to include a 'Home' type magazine which was another personal touch to finish the gift.
Jennifer then sent us a lovely message on Facebook following the delivery of her gift just in time for Mother's Day:
Thank you BasketsGalore and Andrea for helping me out with everything for Mum. Will be recommending you to everyone! Xx
We think that means her mum enjoyed it and she was pleased with our service. As always, we're happy to help!
