Another shorter than normal week this week, as we had Monday off for a local holiday. This meant Tuesday was our busiest day of the week instead, as we had plenty of orders stored up from Friday through to Monday. Fear not though, as there is still plenty of Gift Inspiration ahead.
We've had a lot of interest in our Gift Baskets For Kids lately, as they are a great idea as a get well soon or birthday gift for children. We try to make our Children's Gift Baskets both educational and fun by including a combination of educational games/books with fun toys and jigsaws or puzzles. Our £100 Kids Basket - Creative Genius Gift Basket For Boys was ordered all the way from Japan today for delivery to a little boy in Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.
Next up was an order on our Irish website for delivery to Dublin for a special 30th birthday, Flower to Pamper - Birthday You can't actually see the pretty flowering plant in the images below but it arrives alongside the basket of pampering goodies you see below. Our customer wanted to wish her bestie a fabulous 30th birthday and hoped they celebrated many more birthdays together in the future.
We're experiencing a bit of a baby boom at the moment in terms of the number of Baby Gift Baskets we are delivering. I'm also experiencing this in my own circle of friends at the moment so perhaps there is a boom in general. As well as gift basket for new babies we also have creations for the new mum, as lets face it she has done all the hard work for 9 months. Our New Mother Survival Baby Boy gift basket contains treats mainly for mum, such as new mother bath soak, a candle, hand cream, chocolates, a magazine, a pretty potted plant and also a cuddly teddy for baby. The cutest part is the 'All My Precious Things Wooden Keepsake Gift Box Set' which allows you to store Baby’s First Curl, First Tooth, and Identity Bracelet.
Some Friday fizz came next when I decided to showcase the Bride & Groom Sparkling Hamper Gift . It's more difficult to show case hampers rather than gift baskets, as hampers are packed in layers and are housed in a lidded container. We try to lift a few items out to show the majority of what is inside such as the wine, cheese, paté, olives and crackers. This particular gift was ordered by a Company for an associate in a partner company in London, to congratulate him on his upcoming wedding.
I love it when we have a week of lots of different gift giving occasions to talk about, as it shows just how diverse gift baskets and hampers are. I often get asked which type of hampers we make and my answer is always along the lines that we can make them for any occasion or reason you require. Obviously there are the most popular occasions such as birthdays, thank you and congratulations, but there are also lots of lesser known occasions and even 'just because' as a reason.
Even our blog this week already highlights the wide range going from a children's get well gift, to a 30th floral pamper birthday basket, to a new mum gift to a wedding hamper. All available for next day delivery across Europe if you can place your order before 3pm. So what are you waiting for? Get thinking of the next big occasion you wish to celebrate.
