As I was taking my time photographing the Hampers for the Hampers post today, I thought 'Hey, there are lots of hampers and baskets but I could still do this photography easy peasy'. Oh dear, how very, very wrong I was. Once I finished taking a picture of the hampers, along camea new wave of orders being pushed onto the worktop and I was left with only one tiny strip of worktop to photograph from!
All of a sudden, clever positioning of the Baskets Galore lids became essential in order to showcase the hamper or basket I chose and not have it blend into the background comprised of a dozen other orders! Somehow, I managed to make the most out of a strip of worktops approximately two medium baskets in length and one small basket wide. Just look at this Baby Basket! You can see it's very near the edge in the photo!
The baby baskets also stand out next to the other baskets and today they definitely stand out even more amongst all the gourmet Father's Day gifts with their cheese, crackers, Best Dad flags and mugs. They're like a sudden burst of adorableness amongst the manliness?
This Mummy, Daddy and Me Baby Basket was ordered by a company in Huntingdon and will be sent to welcome the new arrival of new baby girl in Richard's family in Coulsdon. I'm sure the new little girl just made this Father's Day even more special for the daddy.
Then, moving on, we have a gift for a daddy who had been a father for much longer than Richard.
It's an Entertain You basket with the addition of a Father's Day Balloon. Fiona, wishes her father in Woodbridge a very happy Father's Day and she cannot wait to come all the over from the US to see him next month. In the meantime, he can (in Fiona's words) "enjoy the treats, they are fun!"
The last basket I chose to feature today is actually a special order. We received a call yesterday from a lady who wish to order one of our baskets but wanted to check that we could definitely include one of our rarer jigsaw puzzles into the Toys for Boys 5-7 Years Gift Basket.
Her nephew is a giant Spiderman fan and she wanted to double check we have a Spiderman jigsaw in stock. Roma was taking the call at the moment and I was the one who ran out into the warehouse, hike up the stairs and started hunting through our jigsaws to check if we had it in stock. I didn't want to bother the warehouse team because they were super busy with getting Father's Day baskets ready, but in the end i have to because I simply couldn't find the any Spiderman jigsaws. Luckily, Johnny knew exactly where it would be stashed and lo, behold, only one left! Little Kyle would be getting his gift after all! We hope it tingles your Spidey senses!
