I'm quite excited to be finishing this blog up today as it means we have managed to catch up on our weekly gift blogs, to provide you with gift inspiration in real time. Despite a stressful start to the week with thunderstorms outside and in (our website was offline for a few hours because of an issue with Cloudflare) the sun has now appeared and we're back online.
This time last week it was my birthday & we were all tucking into some chocolate cake. Fast forward a week and I've just started a fitness burn diet. Wish me luck! It ties in well with seeing all our new healthy choice snacks starting to appear in our gift baskets and hampers, so hopefully they will also inspire me.
We began the week with all things cute and cuddly and this little bundle of pink, our Mummy & Me Deluxe Gift. I just love the Mummy & Baby matching mug set as a keepsake for years to come. Or for mummy to enjoy her hot chocolate in now with a choccie. While baby waits to use the mug she can certainly cuddle into the teddy bear blankie comforter. Mum also benefits from some soothing bath soak. This particular baby gift was ordered by a company for a member of staff to congratulate the family on their new arrival.
I love the marvel styling for Tuesday's Gift Basket of the Day, with inspiration taken from the gift basket contents. Our Toys For Boys Gift Basket is the perfect choice for little boys who love the Avengers, as well as jigsaws and construction. This was delivered alongside a fresh fruit basket to a little boy in hospital in Bristol. His Auntie in Australia wanted to tell him he was a hero and that they all missed him. Hopefully the combination of these gifts will help sustain and entertain him while he receives treatment.
I always love to see "Create Your Own" gift baskets as they are so unique and interesting. I love to see the combination of products our customers put together. This particular one was even more special as it was created by one of us! Yes Kate put this together for her brother, as he wanted to buy a gift for his friend for their 30th Birthday. He supplied the wine for it and then Kate selected a range of tasty, Vegan-friendly accompaniments to go with it. Kate is a bit of an expert on our products as she has been responsible for sourcing new healthy snacks and designing new gift baskets.
We went down the pampering route on Thursday with Detoxify For Her. This is quote often ordered as a get well or thinking of you gift, however on this occasion it was ordered for a Mum in Belfast as a happy birthday gift. She had the week off work and so her daughter wanted her to take some time to relax and chill out. This is the perfect gift to help achieve this as it contains candles, a body warmer wrap, massage oil, bath salts, hair and face masks, head massager, body butter and spa slippers. There are also some fruit crisps as a tasty, but healthy treat.
Our final Gift Basket of the Day to showcase this week was Thinking of You Floral and Fruit Hamper. It's a bit of a sad of occasion to end the week on, but also positive from the point of view that our Sympathy Gifts can bring a little bit of comfort at times such as this. This one was ordered by a Company for a family in Swansea at their time of need. The fresh fruit, cheese, cakes and easy to eat snacks are perfect as they are easy to eat and share with visitors.
Another fantastic week of inspiring gift basket ideas with occasions of a 30th vegan birthday, get well for a child, a sympathy gift, a pampering gift basket and a baby basket. Remember, these are just a few of the gift baskets we have an offer with many more on the website. We are also launching new ranges all the time, with special Summer offers and designs. All available for next day delivery across the UK, Ireland and Europe.
