Lots of my favourite type of gift baskets going today, yes you guessed it - Create Your Own ones! These come about when our customer select all the contents themselves & then our job is to combine them into a beautiful gift basket.
The first one has an interesting blend of both sweet and savoury items, and was ordered as a Happy Birthday gift to a lady in Newtownards (just down the road from us). I christened it the "Sweets & Meats" gift basket.
Our gift baskets for children are also very popular for birthday and get well gifts. This cute CYO was ordered by family in Calgary, Canada for their poorly nephew in Hamilton, Scotland. They wanted to wish him a speedy recovery and had sent some Lego City to keep him entertained and some chocolates as a treat. We hope the fun balloon will add a little sunshine to his day.
Our next gift is also a get well basket, and with a similar message wishing the recipient a "speedy recovery". This however was for a 'big kid' in Bishops Stortford from the "Canadian Claims Team" in Toronto. We hope his rally car construction kit and train in a tin set keep him entertained while he is recovering.
Once again I've gone over my limit of 3 and also had to show you this picture of an afternoon order we received. We helped the lovely Jennifer with a customised gift for him mum back at Mother's Day. She had selected one of our pre-designed baskets and then asked us to buy in a picture frame and journal to add to it. We were happy to help of course and this time she was creating 2 gifts, a surprise romantic one and a house warming one. This one pictured is the house warming presents for good friends of hers. Her message said she hoped this helped to make their new house "beautifully homely" and we think it certainly will.
