As mentioned in my Gift Hampers blog we had a lovely 'Special Grandad' basket shipping along with an 'Artisan Eclectic' hamper today as a joint gift for a mum & dad in Wicklow both celebrating their birthdays. I just love the combination of old fashioned sweets with traditional cake and preserves.
The next duo of 'Good Fortune' baskets were ordered by the same lady in Arklow, both as engagement presents to friends of hers. Full of tea, biscuits and cakes the contents will come in handy when they sit down to make their wedding plans!
A more unusual choice for me today, not that I don't love our Baby Baskets. The girls normally just have them all beautifully gift wrapped already by the time I arrive to get my daily photo's (cellophane doesn't really photograph well!) This lovely creation is our 'New Mother Survival Basket' which is available in baby boy, girl and surprise versions. This one is the surprise version and so anything for baby is neutral in colour. The main emphasis is on mum in this gift and I just loved the message attached: "Here's a little something for you, at a time when you're concentrating on someone else all day. I hope you get a bit of time to yourself! Congrats again."
