You know me and my gift basket blog, I love to feature "Create Your Own" baskets, which have had all the contents selected by our customer.
First to show you today is a real manly gift basket, created for a poorly gent in Ripley. They purchaser asked him to send them a picture of a balloon animal from the modelling kit they'd included. They also included an aeroplane construction kit, 2 DVD's, a magazine and some marshmallows. We added a complimentary mini box of chocolates too as a little pick me up.
Next on the CYO conveyor belt was this pretty "Thinking of You" gift. Designed by a family in Bracknell for their relative in London to help her have a speedy recovery. It was nice to see our new banana & coconut cake had been selected and combined with organic, fruity lemonade, sweeties, cheese and olives. They also upgraded to a large gift card which isn't pictured here, but helped to theme the gift. Those cheeky chocolates also worked their way in here!
Another lovely customer creation, this time designed to wish an Aunty in Wolverhampton a wonderful birthday. Cooked ham, cheese and oatcakes combined with shortbread and dark chocolates mean she'll get a taste of both sweet and savoury goodness. And look at that, the cheeky chocolates are back! I mentioned last week how I love the new floral posy decorations Lynne ordered in, and you can see them featuring in all today's Create Your Own Gift Baskets.
Just to show you that gift baskets and hampers don't have to be for adults, here is one for a Teen Birthday. Ordered by a gentleman in Dublin to his own address, this could well be a gift for his teenage daughter or niece. It is a really fun basket with a current magazine, cuddly toy, birthday cake & candles, marshmallows, gummy sweets, choccies, body butter, lip balm and a cute notepad.
