We love a good special occasion here at Basketsgalore as it tends to mean even more gorgeous gift basket deliveries than normal. As on top of the ones we send as birthday gifts, get well gifts, thank you and congratulation gifts we also have a whole lot more for whatever occasion is approaching. In June this means Father's Day, which always falls on the 3rd Sunday of June in the UK and Ireland.
Despite it being Father's Day Week, on Monday the selected gift basket of the day was Wonderful Woman which is a gift basket I think most ladies would be delighted to receive, full of prosecco, chocolates, crisps, popcorn and a lovely candle and fancy bath melts. This particular one was shipping out to a girl in Solihull for her 23rd Birthday. It was ordered by her parents in Australia who are missing her lots while she studies abroad.
Tuesday was still a bit early for Father's Day dispatches as most people request them towards the end of this week, so our featured basket was Grateful Gestures ordered by a daughter in Glasgow to thank her Mum (in Ayr) for helping her organise her mortgage. Inside is a winning combination of tea, cake and biscuits for a wee afternoon tea treat.
Wednesday saw Gifts for Dad starting to ramp up in numbers including this Car Lover Dad Gift which was indeed ordered for Father's Day. Ordered by a son in Axbridge, for his Dad in York. AS you might guess by the name, it is themed around cars with the inclusion of a glossy car magazine. He can flick through all the latest models whilst nibbling on high end chocolates and snacking on crisps and cake.
Thursday's choice we went for something different as we new Friday would be back to a focus on Father's Day. So here we have one of our most popular get well gifts for men - Get Well Fruit Basket For Him. This particular one was ordered for a gentleman recovering from surgery in Reading, by his friends and colleagues at work.
As suspected, Friday saw LOTS of manly gifts for him being dispatched on the special Saturday delivery service. Some were a bit late for a pre-Father's day delivery and so opted for it to arrive on the Monday. We know Dads won't mind it being a little bit late! The full range of Gifts For Dads can be seen here. They don't just have to be for Father's Day, we simply change the card to suit the occasion such as his birthday or get well soon.
Another busy and diverse week of many kinds of gift baskets being delivered, with the added bonus of plenty of Dads receiving gifts for Father's Day. If you have any photos of your Dads with their Father's Day Gifts we would love to see them. You can send them via social media or drop us an email. They might even win the prize for best customer photo.
As always, please just get in touch with any special requests as we have more time in the Summer to help achieve these & they are always good fun to create. Would you believe our photographers have been busily working away in the background on...dare I say it....our Christmas Hampers?
