Daily Dispatch is back, did you miss us on Friday?
So after almost forgetting the Monday blog last week with Laura being away, it was lucky I checked again today as we thought the lovely Laura was back to take over again. I soon discovered that she isn't back from her hols yet and so have stepped into the breach once again.
It was a very busy day in the warehouse as unfortunately we couldn't dispatch any orders on Friday, due to the snowy conditions. This meant we had Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday til 3.30pm orders to send out today. The couriers are back up and running but there is a bit of a back log in their depots so hopefully delivery won't take too much longer than their usual speedy next day arrival.
I could take my pick of Gift Baskets and Hampers today, but one immediately caught my eye as our new baby shopper style baskets are now brown with gingham lining rather than white with gingham. It's quite a change but we all agree we quite like it and hope our Customers do too!
This particular baby basket is our Mummy, Daddy & Me Celebration Baskets for a baby boy. The bright colour of the little Olive & Moss T-shirt combined with the colourful Riley Racoon by Lamaze meant this basket was a real eye catcher. Not to forget Mum & Dad either, there is some organic new mum bath soak for Mum and a chocolate cigar for Dad.
Another basket also caught my eye as it contained lots of different little pots, jars and bottles as well as a chilled pack containing smoked salmon and cheese. It was an early Mother's Day gift to a Mum in Ireland. Some people have asked just to send their gifts on ASAP after the recent bad weather and delivery back logs so we hope this mum enjoys her treats in the lead up to Mother's Day on Sunday, 11th March.
