Back in March we were contacted by a PR Company in Dublin who wished to send some customised hampers to clients in the UK/Europe for St.Patrick's Day. They wished to send the ingredients for a "Black Velvet" cocktail in a hamper/gift basket to mark the occasion to clients in Germany and London.
This wasn't the first time we had been approached to create such a gift basket, and so we knew what it involved - Guinness and Champagne!
We quickly got to work setting up an example of how the basket would look as our customer, Christina, had requested to see a photograph if possible. We included 6 bottles of Guinness, a full bottle of Moet & Chandon Champagne, a "Black Velvet" Recipe Cocktail Card (beautifully designed in-house by the lovely Laura) and added some nibbles in the form of nuts. These would be nice to snack on while sipping a cocktail and also filled in any little gaps in the gift basket. The basket itself was filled with green paper/shred and decorated in green ribbons.
We were then able to dispatch them for next day delivery and soon received word that they had been a hit. So much so, in fact, that they ordered another basket for a client in Switzerland!
"Great to work with you, the hampers were perfect. The Teams were delighted. Thanks for all your help." Christina, TRA Brands
