January is here and so are the blues. With the busiest time of the year over with, we all try to get back to normality. With the Christmas Gifts over, decorations put in the shed for another year and the New Years traditions appearing I already know this year is going to be a good one. Lately I have been reading a lot about inspirational quotes to get me in the New Year spirit. My favourite so far has been 'You're a work of art, not everyone will understand you but the ones that do will never forget you'. Have you decided to have a resolution this year? Mine is to try to be a better person, to care more and listen to others opinions. Also to try and stay off Chocolate ..... I'll start that one on Monday!
Daily Dispatch is Back - Weekly Gifts Round Up
We've had a very busy week at Baskets Galore with all the different, exciting baskets going out. This first one was a gift for a corporate client that liked our Platinum Wine Hamper. She liked the fact it was from our "Great Taste Award" range as it would appeal to the clientele, but wanted it to be in an open basket as it was going on display on their stand at a trade show. No task is too big for our wonderful warehouse whizzes as you can see. A lot of lovely items are inside, including Shindigs Rockin' Roots Crisps, a very yummy snack. We all enjoyed them in the office when we go to taste test all the samples!
Next up we have one of my personal favourites our 'XL Fruit Classic'. This fresh fruit gift was ordered by an Australian customer for their Mother back home in County Cork. She wanted to wish her Mother well wishes as she had just came through an operation and she couldn't get back home to look after her. Hopefully this brought some comfort to her Mother at this difficult time. And we hope she gets better soon!
Happy Hump Day
Wednesday saw one of our new birthday baskets shipping out, 'Birthday Dolce Vita'. Ordered by a lovely man in London to send to his wife in Ireland for her birthday. This is the perfect gift for her, it includes items such as Snact Fruit Jerky, Iced Maderia cake and Love Corn Smoked BBQ Roasted Corn Snack. The perfect gift for the perfect woman. A fun gift that has a bit of everything to make their birthday even more special.
Thursday approached and Kate chose this very special gift to feature. We were contacted by a customer in New York who wanted to make his Grandmother's 90th Birthday special as he couldn't get home to celebrate with her in person. We advised him the best way to do this was to order off Basketsgalore.com using the Create Your Own section. As time was of the essence he wanted a bit of help choosing items that would suit the age and type of the person. He also wanted to include some items we don't stock, but we could source locally such as Bailey's. Our design team also suggested items such as Pink Finch Vegetable Crisps, a Chocolate cake, a candle and gardening themed items. We hope this made her 90th birthday extra special.
Ah, the best day of the week .... Friday! What other way to celebrate a Friday than with a Classic Good Luck gift. This gift was for a student returning to University to sit exams after being off for the lovely Christmas holidays. Purchased by her Aunt in Dublin the gift was sent to London to help along with the studies. Exams, moving house or getting a new job can be very stressful things, that's why we think sending gifts like this help the recipient to know everyone is thinking of them.
As always this is just a small selection of what we have to offer. We try to bring you a different selection of gifts each week to give you some inspiration and to showcase the wide range we have on offer. We are also here to help with bespoke gifts such as the 90th birthday one featured this week. Just get in touch with your special requests via email or live chat.
