You all know by now how much I love the "Create Your Own" gift baskets designed by our customers, and so I was pleased to see a few on the list today for my last pre-baby dispatch blog.
We aren't even sure what the occasion behind this lovely creation is, as our customer in Highbridge has selected to have it shipped to herself to pass on in person. When customers do this they tend to not include a gift card message as they can write & include one themselves before passing it on. Perhaps a birthday or thinking of you gift for a colleague or friend, she selected a celebrity magazine, choccies, cookies, sweets and popcorn so I definitely get the feeling it's for someone needing to put their feet up, kick back & relax.
Great Minds For Him is fast becoming a bestseller having been updated for Summer 2016. The magazine, construction kit and wooden puzzle help to keep him busy while nibbling on some sweets, cookies and nuts all washed down with organic lemonade. The message with this one also made me smile as the sender from the Gold Coast, Australia wrote "Thought you'd enjoy this. I was going to add some balloons & a teddy just to annoy you but there was no room in the basket." We hope the gentleman in Poole Hospital likes the basket just as it is, we'd of course have been happy to add those things, but methinks it was a little joke in this case!
A sea of blue caught my eye next in the form of lots of cute Baby Boy Baskets. Yes it was all about the boys today (is this a sign for my new arrival?) with a Little Prince, Special Delivery (Boy), Mummy & Me (Boy) and Mummy, Daddy & Me (Boy) all shipping out today to welcome little Jenson, Milo, George & Calvin to the world. Some name inspiration for me here too!
