Monday really did roll around quickly again so I'm back on 'Daily Dispatch' duty. I really quite enjoy it as it's great to get out into the warehouse and see all the wonderful gifts being created, rather than only handling the paperwork. One difference today though was that I had to wear my trusty BasketsGalore fleece as it's so chilly today. I know a fleece in July seems quite ridiculous & Selina also informed me she had her fire lit last night! We're hoping rumours of this August heatwave are true, as July really has been a washout.
We had a couple of corporate orders going today and these general mean bulk orders, not always huge but more than just a single gift. First up we have a selection of our Best Wishes hampers, ordered by our client who builds new houses. Each new owner receives one of these gifts as a welcome hamper when they move in, how thoughtful eh. These hampers are especially designed along the "Welcome" theme with tea, coffee, cake, biscuits and tray bakes included.
Our next Corporate order of the day was for our ever popular Breakfast Basket, although it's actually a hamper?! Full of delicious, morning time tasty treats such as lemon curd, muffins, jam and waffles. These 4 were ordered by a luxury hotel in Singapore as thank you gifts.
Cheesy Sunshine continues to fly off the shelves, especially at its special discounted rate. These two we for very different occasions too, with one being a joint Anniversary and Birthday present and one being a thank you for the "amazing hospitality and good times" gift. Both sent from the US, but with delivery to different areas in England - a village called Hemingford Grey and a city named Stoke-On-Trent.
My blog last week about picnics maybe inspired some of you as the message with this next hamper was "Happy Birthday and enjoy your picnic with mum & the gang"
