Woo hoo, our featured "Daily Dispatches" are back! It took a break over Christmas, but our daily images and weekly blog round up are back with a bang and of course lots of lovely gift baskets and hampers for all occasions. We're used to being surrounded by hundreds and thousands of Christmas Hampers so seeing fresh fruit, birthday hampers, baby baskets and get well baskets again is a welcome change.
Just a quick reminder that each day we select one of our gift basket and hamper orders to be featured. We take some photographs of it and do a short post about it across our Social Media platforms. At the end of the week we do a round up in this blog, about each of our selections. This means the monthly competition is also reinstated so remember to interact with the daily images for your chance to be in the prize draw
Monday is traditionally our busiest day for dispatches as we have all the orders placed over the weekend to ship out and so there is plenty of choice. Laura went with our Classic Birthday Gift Basket which is full of lots of lovely birthday treats, including chocolate cake, shortbread, tea, coffee and a birthday balloon. It truly is a classic birthday gift for either a man or a woman.
On Tuesday, Kenzie selected our Special Delivery Baby Girl Gift and it is easy to see why in all it's glorious pinkness. Full of big brand name products by Olive and Moss, Aden & Anais, Frugi, Lamaze, Jellycat, Seascape and Lily O'Brien. In this photo the gift wrapping is also in place already so the cellophane wrap and ribbon really help to show how it arrives with the recipient.
It was my choice on Wednesday and I couldn't resist the Customer Creation by a regular customer of ours. They are a charity that sends pick me up gifts to their members and they always pick a lovely selection of things such as muffins, cupcakes, jigsaws, novels and pampering treats such as face masks. They've recently requested a diabetic friendly gift hamper so we are going to source some items locally for them.
Thursday saw a special version of our Chocolate Celebration Hamper being dispatched for his wife's 37th birthday. He wanted to change the alcohol free cider to an alcoholic version and include a bottle of Moscato wine. His gift card message was also very sweet when he referred to her as "his Queen".
Today's basket was another Birthday hamper. Originally I had tried to photograph a Thank You Hamper, but upon reading the gift card message it became clear it was for her father's birthday. We tried to contact our customer in Switzerland to double check this, but unfortunately there was no answer by phone or email. Luckily the basket she had selected also came in a birthday version, just with a different mug, cake and gift card so amending it was easy enough. I opted for a different Birthday Hamper in the meantime, Uncork & Unwind Birthday Basket which is one of my favourites. Who couldn't resist Prosecco, and a Prosecco fund! As well as fancy bath melts, chocolates, a candle and photo album.
We hope we've maybe inspired you with some Birthday Hamper ideas in this blog and as always please just get in touch if you have any special requests.
