Week 1 of September and the main theme of this week seemed to be Birthdays, so a nice happy occasion. From the Birthday Gift Baskets we are showcasing this week it's a great example of their versatility, as we have a male pampering birthday basket, a sweet treat birthday basket and a combination one featuring food, drink and pampering treats.
First up is our Pamper Him Gift Basket, perfect for the man in your life who likes to be well groomed or is in need of some self care. This one was shipping off to St Helen's in Merseyside for an Uncle on his birthday. Making up the Pamper Him Hamper is a shampoo & body wash gift set for men, from Scaramouche + Fandango, a cleansing face mask and a foot pumice and foot butter. These are combined with a lavender eye pillow, back scratcher and wax melts. The pampering theme is then rounded up with some fun, fruit crisps.
Tuesday's gift basket of the day unfortunately wasn't a birthday one, but instead a sympathy gift basket. We have noticed these have been very popular in recent weeks as they are a great alternative to the standard flowers we think of as a bereavement gift. This particular one, Sympathetic Fayre is ideal for sharing with visitors or mourners during the difficult time. It contains a selection of biscuits including shortbread, cookies and tea biscuits as well as tea and toffee waffles. Eating is usually the last thing on their mind and so this is a very practical as well as thoughtful thinking of you gift.
It's always exciting to see new gift baskets being ordered as it's good to know we are still creating popular gift baskets. Over the Summer months we launched a new range of Birthday Gifts for Her and Birthday Gifts for Him, and are beginning to see them filtering through in terms of orders. This little gem is the Birthday Dolce Vita and I just love the pink colour theme, as well as the introduction to lots of our new healthy snack choices. This particular one was ordered all the way from Sri Lanka for a daughter studying in Hayes, Middlesex. Her parents didn't want her missing out on a birthday present and so organised this gift to arrive on her special day.
Now this really was a birth-day, celebrating a special little newborn with this gorgeous Baby Arrival Girl gift basket. The new baby receives a beautiful organic bodysuit by Frugi and character bib by Olive and Moss. These is also a super soft giraffe comfort blankie and new baby girl record book. The basket is then finished off with an"It's A Girl" balloon. This one was ordered from Ontario, Canada to new parents in Hampshire. I just loved the named of the new baby girl too, Genesis.
The final gift basket of the week was another new one from our Birthday Gifts For Women range, Birthday Bliss Gift Hamper, and isn't it a corker? I would love to receive this gift basket myself. I can just see me now popping that prosecco and kicking back with a magazine and a choice of sweet and savoury goodies. Ha ha in my dreams though, I think my family would be more than happy to help me empty the contents.
