Well hello there folks, it's been a while since I have done a Daily Dispatch blog as my lovely colleagues have been doing such a great job while I've been off on Maternity leave. They didn't really need my help anymore when I came back as they had their own routine going, but I am helping out today as we have a couple of people off ill (on what is #nationalsickieday.) Only joking, get well soon guys!
It is soooo cold out in the warehouse that I had trouble undoing the leather straps to get a peek inside this first, incredibly large gift hamper. It's a Great Taste Award Diamond Bounty on it's way from Cork to Dublin for a couple to enjoy & with well wishes for the gentleman. This hamper will certainly keep their cupboards well stocked as it contains about 3 layers full of food & drink! I've included a pen in the picture to show you the scale.
Not just for Christmas, our amended version on the XY Generation hamper is currently selling well as it features in our Winter Sale at half price, just £25. The original version contained mince pies but we have replaced these with Tipperary Kitchen Biscuit Cake instead, so it's suitable as an "all year round" gift too. These 2 were ordered as birthday gifts, one for a young lady in Leicester from her family in Kingston Upon Thames and another for a dad in Milford, Ireland. His daughter wrote in her message that he should maybe follow her brothers example of "Touch my food, feel my fork!"
Of course we also have birthday hampers especially designed for a birthday, such as this Girls 30th Birthday Basket with a pretty 30th mug, balloon and gift card as well as tasty treats such as popcorn, crisps, choccies and sweets. This particular one is on its way to Wilmslow from her family in Manchester. We hope she enjoys her sweet treat surprise when it is delivered tomorrow.
