Last week was a short week for us as we were closed on the Monday 18th. Our Irish Division were closed for the St Patrick's Day holiday and so we closed for staff training too. This meant we had no dispatches on Monday, and so this weeks blog will feature 4 lovely gift basket ideas instead of 5.
Starting on Tuesday, we were very busy as we had all of Monday's orders to ship that day as well. We couldn't not select this Sparkling Chocolate Celebration Gift Hamper, as it had the special addition of apples. What's so special about apples you might ask? Well the fact they were for a newborn baby horse! That's right, our Customer was sending her friend a chocolate gift hamper to congratulate her as her horse had just had a baby foal. She didn't want mummy horse and the new baby to be left out of the celebrations and so asked if we could include some apples. We were happy to oblige, we love an unusual occasion!
Wednesday saw a more traditional choice of a baby gift, as in it was for a baby girl rather than a foal. Our Baby Love Girl gift features lots of lovely treats focusing on the baby herself - organic clothes, handmade leather shoes, teddies, bubble bath, bibs, teddies etc.
Thursday's gift basket of the day was selected by Kate and she opted for a healthy choice of Exceptional Ingredients
As well as fresh fruit there are ingredients such as coconut water, amino, lemon curd, hazelnut butter and chia seeds. This was ordered for a Grandma to keep her spirits up, from her family living in Illinois.
Everyone on social media enjoyed the name of Friday's birthday basket, Old Enough To Know Better. This is a really impressive birthday gift full of wine, birthday cake, smoked salmon, cheese and chocolate truffles. Ordered by a Company for one of their important clients & upgraded to Saturday delivery so as the perishables would arrive freshly overnight.
From this week alone you can already see the wide range of occasions we cater for with Congratulations, New Baby, Get Well Soon and Birthday featuring. We are always happy to make adjustments to existing gift hampers if you see one you like but need to add or change something. We can even source non-stock items such as a favourite chocolate bar or variety of wine very quickly if you chat online with us or drop us an email. For simple changes involving no change in pricing, such as red wine to rosé or dark chocolate to milk just enter this in the comments box during checkout or reply to your order confirmation email and we'll get back to confirm this was done. Easy peasy.
You can also order up until 3.30pm for next day delivery. If it's a Friday you have the choice to upgrade to Saturday delivery, or for delivery on Monday. We can deliver across the UK, Ireland and EU so we are your one stop gift shop for Europe.
