Now that Halloween is officially over, we can now move onto looking at Christmas items without that feeling you get in a supermarket when they put out Christmas items too much ahead of time - is it just me or does it seem to get earlier every year? When I worked in a supermarket back in my student days, it was a giggle-eye-roll-sigh for us shop-floor workers and each year without fail we would be muttering how sooner or later we would be dealing with Christmas stock in Easter!
Well, what can I say? Maybe it was fate that I ended up working in Baskets Galore where we really do start thinking about Christmas around Easter!
Anyways, enough of my rambling. Onto the basket of the day!
Today I chose to feature our new and updated Gourmande Irlandais hamper.
The hamper was ordered by - deep breath here! - Melissa, Ali, Iana, Erin, Hitesh, Santhosh. Matt and Sharjeel in London. It's a hamper to celebrate the recent arrival of a bundle of joy to Iain and Laura (Richmond, UK)
I'm sure the couple is receiving lots of baby gifts already, so it's always a great surprise and much appreciated when the gift is something for the adults and not for the baby. Especially when the gift message says that one fo the senders are up for the role of babysitter! Maybe they Iain and Laura should take them up on the offer and take it easy for a day to enjoy the gourmet products in this hamper.
