Most of our gift baskets and hampers are sent directly to the end recipient, but sometimes we get the orders of gift baskets going to the senders themselves. Usually we always check with them to see if that's their intention; you know, just in case they accidentally put the billing address in as the delivery address - admit it, a lot of us have done it before at least once, right? I know I did. But those are few and far between. Most of them are intentional.
Why would you want to send a gift to yourself instead of to the recipient? Why, so that you could hand deliver it of course! Sending gifts directly is great and all, but if you're going to meet the recipient, how much more awesome would it be if you hand the gift over yourself and watch their eyes widen in surprise and glee?
Today, we have one such basket going to the lady who ordered it. It's a customised basket, where she pick and chose all the items to go in the basket of her choice. She also chose a blank gift card to be included as well, this way the whole gift would arrive altogether and she doesn't need to nip out to the shops and buy a card separately.
The top gift is the one going to the sender, and the second (bottom) gift basket is another customer creation put together by a lady in Australia.
The second basket is for a Mr. Collins in Cardiff, UK, the father of the sender. It contains goodies to help relieve him of boredom during this period of time when he's not feeling very well. My favourite part of this basket has got to be the fabulously delicious St Clements Lemonade. But then again, I'm a bit of a sucker for fizzy drinks, so I may be bias...
