It's another weekly round-up and what a week it has been. We started the week by showing our appreciation with this amazing Classic Thank You Gift Basket. As you can see Laura's lovely cake sleeves are featuring again. We are busy rephotographing all the products for the website so as you can see how the celebration cakes have all been upgraded from a mini cake to a 400g cake.
You wouldn't believe it either, but this thank you gift was actually ordered by a family pet! Ruby wanted to thank a kind couple in Northumberland for looking after her so well while her Mummy & Daddy were away on holiday.
For Tuesday we can show you a before and after gift wrapping shot of our Detoxify For Her Gift Basket. I particularly love this pampering gift as it comes in an attractive shopper style gift basket. This was ordered by a couple of Dubai, for delivery to Peckham for her Auntie's 50th Birthday. We hope she celebrated in style and is enjoying some chill out time with her basket of goodies.
Wednesday was another birthday hamper, this time Sensational Birthday and it's easy to see why. There are so many delicious bakery treats in here to enjoy, and you guessed it a birthday cake featuring our new sleeve. Our sleeves can be a standard "Happy Birthday" or they can be personalised for any age with an attractive age sticker that fits into the design. There is also a birthday balloon and gift card with this basket, so they really will get the message :) Felicity in Dublin is probably still making her way through everything here.
Thursday saw a change of focus to lots of Baby Gift Baskets shipping out and Kate has selected a very cute one to showcase. Who could resist Rocky the raccoon by Lamaze Toys? As the name suggest Mummy, Daddy & Me Celebration Boy inside this new baby gift are items for the new mum, proud dad and newborn. The baby clothes and skincare are both organic, from Frugi and Vital Touch respectively.
Friday came along and it was my turn to take the feature basket image. I opted to feature a hamper this time, and one we maybe haven't seen showcased before on this Daily Dispatch blog - French Wine Hamper
A lucky mum & dad in Witham were receiving this on Saturday as a joint birthday gift. Traditionally we tended to offer Australian wines in our hampers, but before Christmas we also introduced some old world wines to the range for those who prefer those tastes. The wines are also accompanied by lots of other lovely goodies across 2 layers in the hamper. Cheese, nuts, chutney, soda toasts, paté and truffles for the savoury aspect and chocolate discs, apple thins and organic cookies.
As always this is only a small selection of the gift baskets and hampers we dispatch on a daily basis. Birthdays seemed to be the main occasion featuring from this weeks highlights, but we also saw plenty of thank you gifts, anniversary presents and baby gifts. On a less celebratory note, sympathy gifts, get well gifts and thinking of you gifts were also popular occasions for sending a gift this week.
