What would your ultimate get well gift be?
At BasketsGalore we have always found our get well gift baskets to be extremely popular, and in recent years were getting more and more requests for baskets in the luxury, £100+ range. This is because get well baskets are often ordered by a company or group of colleagues and so they tend to club together and have a higher budget to play with.
Some clients prefer pure fruit baskets, some a mixture of fruit and food and some opt for a pamper or puzzle get well gift basket. But what if you can't decide, some people like a little bit of everything and we aim to please.
Yesterday someone ordered our "Ultimate Get Well Gift For Him" for a gentleman in Glasgow, and it really does fit this bill. As well as the fresh fruit there is fruit juice, a selection of baked goods, nuts, dates, chocolates, sweets, tea & drinking chocolate. There is also a choice of magazine, reading novel, puzzles and puzzle books, a DVD, a jigsaw and table top football game. On the pampering side massage oil, a head massager, face wash, moisturiser and a manly, but cuddly teddy bear named Brody are included.
Our fruit hampers are prepared freshly each day and with so many orders shipping yesterday, one of our Directors (Neil) was in the warehouse helping out.
As part of this gift basket, and many others, you get a choice of magazine title to include. This particular client was a Production Company and they had requested a football magazine. We use popular title Four Four Two and this month they have 4 different covers featuring: Bale, Rodriguez, Messi and Suarez. Neil had previously explained to us that we could order/purchase ones with Bale or Rodriguez on the cover, but not Messi or Suarez due to his personal preferences! Unfortunately we ran out of the magazines we have delivered so had to top up at the local shop, and yes you've guessed it...the only covers they had left were Messi and Suarez. I think this shows that Neil's footballer preferences are the same as the other local shoppers as there were no Gareth Bale covers in sight! Neil is a Tottenham Hotspur supporter by the way. We tried to sneak the alternative covers past him, but unfortunately he caught us in the act and couldn't hide his displeasure at having to add a non-Gareth Bale cover magazine to his beautiful gift basket creation.
Which of the 4 footballer covers would you prefer?
