Normally my last blog of the day is the 'Fruit & Flowers' one, but today I'm starting with it. Perhaps as the sun has me thinking of the outdoors!
This colourful "Create Your Own" creation was made for a special mum in The Wirral, from her daughter and family in sunny LA. They wanted to wish her a very happy birthday and let her know they were thinking of her. The mixture of contents are really lovely, as there is smoked salmon, cheese and fresh fruit along with paté, olives, honey, chocolate truffles and pretzels. This is my kind of gift basket indeed!
Another "Customer Creation" up next, equally as brilliant but very different. I got the impression from the gift card message that this gift was for a family as it went along the lines of "a wee token to let you know we are thinking of you all". The contents also reflected this with books, activity packs and sweeties for children, but also a magazine, face mask and bath salts for mum. This is exactly why our Create Your Own site is so popular, you can design the exact gift basket you need depending on the reason or occasion. This helps to make them really personal and thoughtful.
Our customer in Christchurch was keen to get herself out of the dog house as she was sending this International Mother's Day gift a little but late, but we think her mum in Tubbercurry will definitely forgive her when she receives it tomorrow. She picked a lovely selection of Irish cheese, oatcakes, dates & soda toasts and combined them with Spanish honey and a flowering plant.
My extra choice of the day was this Truffley Fruit Get Well gift basket as it is a wonderful mixture of both sweet and savoury treats and delicious fresh fruit. This one was ordered for a mum & dad in Dublin, to help them feel a bit better.
