Monday was the May Day Bank Holiday and so as we had the day off we had no daily dispatches that day. This means this week is a bit shorter than usual, with Tuesday being extra busy with having a day to catch up on. We hope you all had an enjoyable May Day Holiday. It wasn't very good weather here and my smallest son woke up with an ear infection and so we spent the day in the house. Hopefully you faired better. On the upside we had a nice busy rest of week for all sorts of Gift Basket Occasions, so read on for some info on our favourites baskets of the week.
One of your favourite sections of our website seems to be our Alternative Gift Options. This is particularly popular when someone is looking for a Get Well Gift, as sometimes the recipient may be nil by mouth or not able to eat much and so you a Get Well Fruit Basket might not be a particularly good choice for them. Our Alternative Get Well Gifts are just what you are looking for in this case as they can be without food at all, or just have a few small items in them. Instead the can concentrate on pampering goodies, like Tuesday's Alternative Therapies For Her or to include fun items to entertain such as jigsaws, puzzles, grown up colouring books, magazines and books.
Wednesday's choice was for a milestone birthday celebration, and our popular 40th Birthday For Her Gift Basket It's easy to see why this birthday basket is so popular because as well as the selection of sweet treats and lemonade there is also a 40th birthday mug and 40th birthday cake to theme the basket entirely. We hope the lucky recipient in Petersborough enjoyed the early celebrations for her birthday weekend.
Thursday's decision for 'Basket of the Day' was made immediately as a good customer of ours from California had created her own fabulous gift for Mother's Day. Mother's Day in the US falls on the 2nd Sunday in May, rather than in March, and so she sent her Mum in Rochdale her gift on this date instead.
Inside the Deep Fabric Lined Gift Basket she included Guerrieri Rizzardi Prosecco, Ummera Organic Smoked Irish Salmon, Connemara Air Dried Lamb, Tropical Fruit Collection, Green Pepper Venison Salami, Heart Of Lincolnshire Mature Cheddar, Caramelised Red Onion Cheese Truckle, Belgian Chocolate Waffles, Luscombe Cool Ginger Beer, Luscombe Passionate Ginger Beer, Qi Organic Digestive Tea, Qi Organic Lemon & Ginger Tea, Green Bean & Sugar Snap Pea Crisps, Iberico Paté With Sherry, White Truffle Porcini Mushroom Pate, Ummera Smoked Silver Hill Duck Breast, Forest Feast Street Food Nut Mix, Snow Leopard Or Meerket By Keel Toys, Soothing Microwave Body Wrap and a Mother's Day Balloon. Where else could you create such a unique and varied gift basket, but here of course?
It's not a happy reason, but still an important occasion during which people often like to convey their thoughts through a gift. Thinking of You and Sympathy Gift Baskets are popular choices from our range as they are thoughtful like flowers, but also really practical too. This particular one, Sympathy Floral & Fruit Basket, features a selection of fresh fruit, cheese, olives, cake etc (which is themed with a thinking of you cake sleeve) and a pretty flowering plant.
As you can see this was another great week for variety as we have featured a Get Well Gift, a Birthday Gift Basket, a Mother's Day Gift Basket and a Sympathy Gift. There are just so many Gift Basket Occasions we can cater for, the possibilities are endless :)
