Our "Daily Dispatch" blogs have been away a while, but they're back and better than ever. I was pleased to be writing the first one of the New Year, and I had PLENTY to choose from. We have a sale on at the moment so lots of hampers were leaving today, including Christmas Traditional Celebrations and Feasts. I thought you might like to put Christmas behind us now we are all back to work/school (and it might make us weep thinking back to the holidays) and so I opted to photograph ones for other occasions, including the New Year.
First up are these pair of Breakfast Baskets, although they are actually in a hamper! This hamper enables them to enjoy a yummy breakfast of granola, waffles and muffins, jam, marmalade and a choice of tea, coffee or fruit juice. One is being sent as a wedding gift to a couple in Tubbercurry and the other an anniversary present to a couple in Grantham.
I couldn't decide between the range of bakery baskets lined up for dispatch today and so took a quick shot of them all. There was a Baked Sensation going as a Happy New Year gift, a Sensational Birthday Basket and a Baked Regards thank you gift.
On a sadder note, we also had a few sympathy gift hampers shipping today to Dublin. These make practical and thoughtful gifts during a time of grieving and have steadily gained popularity, although flowers still seem to be the gift of choice for bereavements.
