There are always so many lovely gift baskets being dispatched that I find it hard to narrow it down to just 3. Most of my gift basket blogs feature 4 or 5! To make it easier I selected all the "Create Your Own" ones going today, as there are 1 of a kind and so you won't have seen them before.
This first creation is being delivered to the customer herself in Sanderstead, rather than the end receiver and so there was no message with it. She has picked a birthday cake however, so we know the occasion at least. She combined this with some chocolates, biscuits, jam, tea and fruit jellies so the recipient must have a sweet tooth.
The next creation was by a lady with a lovely name, Blessing, from Aberdeen. I'm into names at the moment as we're trying to come up with a shortlist for baby no 2! I thought this gift was such a lovely way to spoil her friend (in Abingdon) as it contained sparkling wine, chocolates, popcorn, a magazine, DVD, cuddly teddy, candles and lip balm along with a lovely "friend" themed mug. Her message mentioned that they would still get to go on their travels some day and in the meantime she wanted her to enjoy this gift & know that she loved her. Aw, sounds like her poor friend may be poorly and so this was a get well/thinking of you gift.
Our next customer creation was for a group of children to say "thinking of you lots, some treats for you..." Their Aunty in Whitchurch selected 3 cuddly dogs, 3 childrens books, 3 lollipops, a tub of mini cookies and some fizzy cola bottles so we think perhaps there are 3 of them! I also couldn't resist getting a quick picture of another children's gift basket, for a little boy. Lynne has just redesigned the Busy Bee Gift Basket to make a boys and girls version. This is the boys version and was sent for a 4th birthday gift. The gift was ordered from Switzerland, for delivery to London and the gift card message was in German.
