As soon as I heard the packing team heading to lunch I was on the case & nipped out to snap our daily photo's. Unfortunately, for me, they had been very thorough and had completed most of the hampers already! Here they are all ready for boxing:
Luckily we have MANY photographs of hampers in our archives and so I was able to call on these, rather than risk disturbing these beauties.
First up we had a Great Taste Award Platinum New World hamper ordered for a prize draw in Dublin. We're pretty sure all the great taste items, wines and cheese will attract plenty of interest from hungry "rafflers." As it was for a prize draw we upgraded the hamper to a larger size to give the company more room to display all the contents when it reaches them.
Next was another from our Great Taste range, but this time our Mixed Titanium hamper. It's mixed as in it contains both added extra's of the ice pack of meats and a duo of wines. This particular one was ordered by a couple in Dublin 5 to thank their wedding planner in Italy. They wished to thank her for all her help so far and wanted to send a "little taste of Ireland" ahead of their Italian wedding in early May.
Another popular hamper lately is Gourmande Irlandais, but I loved the reason behind sending this one and so had to include it once more. This was ordered to thank a gentleman in Dublin 24 for the beautiful wedding service he had carried out for them. Apparently they got lots of great comments about it afterwards and so were extremely pleased with how it went. The senders, in London, also said they hoped his leg had healed and that they would see him soon.
My final hamper choice of the day was Artisan Twin Scran which was another 'Thank You' gift. This time it was to thank a couple in Meonstoke for opening their home up to her from Toronto & giving her a wonderful and memorable holiday. The Artisan range of hampers has a focus on the chilled element such as smoked salmon, cheese, ham and salami which are combined with chocolates and biscuits from other smaller, local producers.
