Taking Care Of Each & Every Gift (Monkey Needed To Breathe)

We understand just how important gift baskets are. When you have gone to the effort of creating a personalised one for a friend, colleague or member of your family we realise you want it to be just right. Chances are it is for an important occasion in your lives and you want to celebrate it or let them know you are thinking of them. That is why we personally check each and every gift basket or hamper order going out. We want it to look the best it can, so that both you and the recipient are delighted with it.

Our pre-designed range of gift baskets and hampers generally just need a quick quality control check, as they have been designed to perfectly fit the container and the products all complement each other.

Create Your Own Gift Baskets are a little bit different, as you our lovely customers have selected all the contents and container for your gift. Our packaging team then pick the best size of container and carefully arrange all the contents to look they best they can be. Shred, gift wrap, a ribbon and gift card are also added. I just love to see how they all turn out, as they are all so unique.

It can be difficult to visualise how all the items are going to come together sometimes & so we often get requests for photographs, which we endeavour to take whenever possible.

Lately we received an order for a get well gift, and the purchaser had selected a wonderful variety of items along with a lidded, wicker hamper. The recipient seemed to be a new mum who unfortunately had to stay on in hospital with her newborn.

When the packing team were assembling the gift they soon realised that the lidded hamper might not be the best option, as the fresh fruit might be squashed or move around inside & become bruised.

They consulted with Lynne who suggested our large open white basket instead so we could then shrink wrap the contents to hold them in place before applying a pretty layer of spotty cellophane and ribbons & bows. Lynne was also relieved that Monkey would be able to breathe more easily this way. The pictures below show the end result....
