Neil was in his element on Friday as he got the chance to make up a special birthday basket for one of his favourite Aunties, Liz. He wanted to choose everything that he felt she would love and incorporate these things into the perfect gift basket for her special day. I was very impressed with the result and Liz was delighted too! The basket included a 'Special Auntie' mug with the inscription - 'Only an Auntie can give hugs like a mother, keep secrets like a sister and love like a friend', natural coconut water, Italian Peccatucci biscuits, a plaque which says 'Glorious at Sixty', goji berries, a cuddly teddy bear, assorted munching seeds, Italian pasta, Rose Wine, Coconut Aminos (an organic alternative to soy sauce), mushroom pate with white truffle, a scented candle in a tin, black truffles for her favourite recipe, a reading novel, scented body lotion and body wash, strawberry cup cake hand cream and a pretty floral posy.
Us girls had also decided to put together a few of her favourite items, and so we created a separate gift basket (so as not to disturb Neils vision!) with some items we had bought ourselves. We then combined these with a few of her BasketsGalore favourites. Andrea sourced some Italian hand wash, soap and body cream as well as a silk scarf and pretty make up bag, also from Italy. We all went out to Libby's favourite Pizza Restaurant (did you sense the Italian theme going on here!) to celebrate and a great time was had by us all! Here is the birthday girl herself receiving her 2 birthday gift baskets!
