With Father's Day just on the horizon, needless to say, our team is busy processing one Father's Day gift after another. Phew! There were so many that they all couldn't be fit into the packaging area work counters, and some had to be left in the assembly area of the warehouse! Somehow or the other though, I managed to clear enough room for a lovely lined up shot of these Gourmet Cheese & Wine baskets.
Let's work from left to right. The leftmost basket is from Jacqueline (Beaumaris, AU), for her father Derek in Altrinham to wish him Happy Father's Day. The middle Gourmet Cheese & Wine would be going off to Kilmeaden, IE tomorrow to Michael. His one and only son, Paul (Montreal CA) wrote "have a drink on me" in his gift card which I found was particularly smile-inducing. And the right-most basket is from all of William's daughters in Bath, UK. It seems like they decided to pool together for their gift this year, speaking of which, I need to contact my siblings and organise something ASAP!
What other Father's Day baskets do I see? I see one of our new updated baskets Footballing Flair leaving our depot today.
Particularly appropriate because of UEFA Euro 2016 going on right now. We don't have beer in our range of products but the Cool Ginger Beer in this basket is gorgeous and have a great 'kick' of ginger with each sip. Then there is a mug with a football themed message on it, perfect for all footy fans, and a cheeky 'Beer Fund' money pot as well to bring a smile to any dad's face. We hope it brings David (Belfast, NI) a big grin.
And moving away from Father's Day, I wanted to take a picture of this incredibly soft looking Mummy & Me Deluxe - Unisex basket.
This baby basket was ordered by a customer in Australia in the wee hours of the morning today. It's going to Sophie and her beautiful daughter in Telford, UK. I love the way this basket have a pink mummy mug in it. There is nothing quite like relaxing with a mug especially for you. I wonder what Sophie would have in it first. A cup of tea, or maybe she'd have the Choc+ Drinking Chocolate that's in this basket.
