As I'm sure you know by now we offer a "Create Your Own" gift basket service, as well as offering a range of pre-designed baskets and hampers for you to choose from.
I love featuring these customer creations in our Daily Dispatch blogs as there are some lovely ideas & it's nice to see each unique gift basket coming together. Although customers can select a container, we make sure the items go into the best gift basket or hamper available as we have many different styles, shapes and designs. Sometimes the items you select are better suited to a slightly different container and so we will upgrade this for you, free of charge.
On Monday I was taking the photographs & noticed one customer creation was for a little girls 3rd birthday. Her grandparents in New Zealand had selected some lovely items from the Childrens section, including a Digibird interactive pet, a puppy dog teddy, dolly mixtures and chocolate piglets.
Due to the shape & size of the items selected there were a couple of little gaps in the basket itself. Sometimes we fill gaps with some extra fruit, a complimentary food items or some decorative flowers but on this occasion none of these things suited as the recipient was a little girl.
I mentioned this to Lynne & she came up with the idea of adding some books - a set of 3: letters, numbers and colours and also a colouring book. These were added on a complimentary basis, and you can see from the before and after pictures below that they really helped to complete the look of the gift basket. The girls in the packaging team then wrapped the basket in some lovely spotty cellophane and finished it with a pretty pink & purple birthday ribbon. An appropriate birthday card was also selected by our Admin Team to print the gift card message into.
We thought we'd share this story with you to show how we check each gift before it is dispatched to ensure the quality is of a high standard. We hope this means that the recipient will be delighted and our customers happy with our service. Just that extra personal touch to help us achieve our aim of exceeding your expectations.
