One corner of the packing area was awash with cheese when I arrived to take my blog photo's this morning. I noticed it was mostly lots of the same gift basket, but not exactly. Based on our popular Cheesy Sunshine Basket but with a twist, as one version comes with extra chocolates and another is themed for a birthday with a birthday balloon. The Cheese & Chocolates baskets were "thank you for the hospitality" gifts and the Cheesy Birthday Baskets were for a sister in Celbridge and a "best mum" in Limerick, ordered from the US and New Zealand respectively.
Stepping away from the Cheesy corner lead me to a selection of chocolate and bakery hampers, and our Sweet & Bubbly basket particularly caught my eye. This one was ordered as a 30th Wedding Anniversary gift for a couple in Glasgow, which is particularly relevant to me at the moment as we celebrated my parent-in-laws 40th anniversary at the weekend.
My final hamper choice for today is this Gourmet Pathway, with the addition of a 'Congratulations' balloon. The Congratulations balloon available as an additional extra on the website is pictured as a standard, colourful one. However, upon reading the gift card message accompanying this basket the packing team amended it to a baby themed Congratulations balloon, as it was to celebrate the arrival of a new baby boy in Aughnacloy. Food hampers are becoming particularly popular as new baby gifts, as sustenance for the tired new parents!
