Today we have all been a bit busy for what is usually a slightly more quiet Friday & so we have split the 'Daily Dispatch' blog between 3 of us so as you still get your daily fix.
I am taking care of the gift hampers side of things today, and luckily there were lots of lovely ones to choose from.
First of all came this popular Great Taste Award Red Titanium Hamper, which was coincidentally April's best selling food hamper. I wonder if it will triumph again this month as it is still on special offer. This particular one was ordered as a birthday gift by parents in Hamilton, Canada for their son who works for ITV in London.
My next selection was this brilliant Brunch Basket. We don't dispatch many perishable hampers on a Friday, as they wouldn't bet delivered until Monday. However, this particular one had been upgraded to the Saturday delivery service by the customer. I also wasn't quite sure what the occasion was for, as the gift card message was written in a different language. With the help of trusty Google Translate, the language was detected as Afrikaans and was along the lines of "we are thinking of you & are closer than you think" as they are in Australia and the recipient in Cambridge, UK.
I couldn't narrow my final choice of today's hamper dispatches down to just one and so included this trio of Cheesey Wine hampers. Pictured are 2 Cheesey Sunshine Gift Baskets, 1 of which has a single bottle to become a Sunny Cheese & Wine Basket and the other a duo to become a Cheesey Sunshine & Wine Duo. The Sunny Cheese Basket was accompanied by a gushing message from a very proud girlfriend about how hard her boyfriend had worked and so deserved all the treats. The Duo basket was a 'Thinking of You' gift to a mum in Trim from her daughter and family in Canada. The Gourmet Hint basket was an engagement gift between friends, going from London to Epsom.
