It's time for another weekly round up of the Gift Baskets and Hampers we shipped out in week 4 of September. I don't know about you, but September just seemed to fly by and here we are well into October already. The Autumn time is mainly about preparing for Christmas for us, but that's not to say there still aren't plenty of orders shipping out for a wide range of occasions. This blog for example is show casing the "Baskets of the Day" and in these alone the occasions covered are Good Luck, Congratulations - New Baby and New Job, Thank You and Happy Birthday Gifts. The theme of this week seems to be Wine Gift Hampers, although we also offer lots on non-alcoholic options too.
Monday is always a particularly busy day at BGHQ as quite a lot of orders amass over the weekend period. Choosing just one to showcase can be tricky with so many on offer, but I think Laura did a great job in selecting this Be Good To Yourself Fruit Hamper This was ordered by a Mum & Dad in Australia for their daughter in Leeds. They wanted to wish her luck on her new adventure, so perhaps a new study path, job or house. They added a bottle of Champagne to the basket to really toast the occasion & therefore turning it into one of our Wine Gift Hampers. The fresh fruit, shortbread, chocolates and fruit crisps will also go down a treat we are sure.
Tuesday was a vision of pink with lots of lovely Baby Girl Gift Baskets lined up for dispatch. This particular one featured is our Special Delivery Baby Girl This particular basket was ordered by a Media Company to one of their employees, to celebrate the arrival of his baby daughter. Our baby baskets tend to include organic baby clothes, developmental toys, organic skincare, teddies, blankets, rattles, comforters all of course for the newborn baby. Then we also have a range of Baby Baskets that include things for Mum & Dad too, such as chocolates, champagne and pampering products.
I quite fancied Wednesday's Intriguing Nibbler (White) hamper for myself as quite a lot of the goodies inside caught my eye. From the bottle of white wine, to the real fruit jellies, creamy garlic and herb cheese to the rich chocolate pudding. What is not to love? This Wine Hamper was winging its way to Whitley Bay as a thank you gift from a Company to one of their loyal clients. We definitely think the recipient will have felt appreciated when she unwrapped this. We try to create something a little bit different in our Wine Gift Hampers by experimenting with flavours and product combinations.
Another gift I wouldn't say no to receiving was Thursday's Sweet & Bubbly Gift Basket. Bubbles and chocolate (lots of chocolate) are the winning combination in this case, and the perfect way to celebrate your birthday. Ordered by a lady in the US for her good friend in Barking. This particular one of our Chocolate and Wine Gift Hampers has recently been updated. The core elements remain the same but a few of the supporting products have been updated with new packaging or replaced. We like to keep things fresh as many of our Customers are repeat customers and so they like to see new combinations. Sparkling wine and chocolates are a welcome gift for a range of occasions such as birthday, thank you and congratulations.
Friday's 'Gift Basket of the Day' was another Corporate order for our Australian Wine Hamper. A recruitment company wanted to Congratulate a former client for his recent success in his new job. This is from our new range of Wine Gift Hampers, designed with Christmas in mind but also perfect for any time of year as there is no festive food inside. The Australian part is the wine itself as one bottle is by Wyndham Estates and the other Borossa Valley Estates.
So to sum up our feature baskets this week focused on Wine Gift Hampers, although these are only a small fraction of the gift baskets we actually ship out each day. You can be sure to find a hamper for all occasions and tastes and these can include wine or be alcohol free.
