It may only be the beginning of December but we are already 30% reserved! As a small business, we have grown from nothing and our belief in only stocking the gift baskets and hampers in our range with the finest and freshest products has got us to where we are today. We believe this is the reason we are so popular and have customers returning year after year… they know no matter what the price point their hamper will be brimming with only the most luxurious products, fresh and crafted to the highest standard.
When it comes to Christmas we must prepare months in advance. The process begins during the summer - developing new products, tweaking old favourites to keep them up to date with current trends and From looking at previous years sales we can forecast which gift baskets will be our best sellers in order to roughly estimate how many baskets will need prepacked in the run up to Christmas.
During the year all of our gift baskets and hampers are made to order. During the festive season, as the number of orders increase we must prepare in order to meet demand, so we begin prepacking gift baskets in November.Once the Christmas orders start rolling in, we can narrow down this years most popular hampers.- knowing when they will no longer be in stock and encourage our customer to order soon if the gift basket they are interested in falls within this category. In some instances we may be able to order more of the products which fill the hampers to come back in stock and thus the gift basket can be restocked, but this is not always viable. We would recommend ordering sooner rather than later… just to be on the safe side!
All of our gift baskets and hampers are packed by hand. This not only takes a lot of time, but also a lot of effort by our dedicated team of packing staff. When prepacking the gift baskets the team create an assembly line, laying out every basket and placing each individual item in one by one. By placing the products in the hamper by hand we can pay close attention to the quality control of each individual gift basket, ensuring the baskets are presented perfectly. Not only are the baskets packed by hand but they are also wrapped, tied with ribbon and placed in a protective box by hand.
Although a small family run business, we are mighty. As you can see this is a huge operation, a real team effort by everyone in the warehouse to ensure the hampers you love are perfectly assembled, wrapped and waiting to go. We have hundreds of gift baskets and hampers prepacked and ready to go some as a corporate thank you for an office team and others to be nestled beautifully under the tree of a friend or family member to wish them a very Merry Christmas.
