The last week of February! February seems to have flown in for us all at Baskets Galore. With our development team working hard to create new special gifts for 2020 it seems like there aren't enough days in the week. This weekend I thought I would continue the fast pace and even decided Sunday to go furniture shopping on Sunday .... oh what a mistake! Especially with two crazy kids! We got lost in IKEA for hours, the only good thing was the staff were handing out free chocolate! So all in all it wasn't too bad. Did you do anything fun to wave goodbye to February?
Monday again, I think I must be the only person in the whole world who actually enjoys Monday! Dan chose a new basket from our Mother's Day range to start the week off, the Mother's Day Celebration Gift, a special gift for a special lady. This particular gift was going to a wonderful Mum in Glasgow on her birthday. It was from her daughter in New York who unfortunately couldn't make it back home to celebrate properly. We hope her Mum enjoyed receiving the gift just as much as we enjoyed making it for her.
Ahhhh Tuesday, some people say Tuesday is Monday's ugly sister. Inga was away home to Lithuania to see her family so I was lucky enough to get to do two gift baskets of the day this week! I chose one of my favourite baskets to brighten up everybody's Tuesday, our yummy Classic Fruit. I personally love fruit and every time I see this basket I get instantly hungry! It includes an array of juicy fruits including pineapple, passion fruit, large & small oranges, melon, red & green apples, kiwi, plums, red & green grapes. Just to be a little bit naughty we decided to a add a sneaky box of Skellig's Strawberry and Champagne truffles. This gift would be perfect for a Get Well, Birthday or pretty much any occasion. This particular one was ordered by a lady in London to her friend, also in London, to say thanks for everything.
Happy Hump Day! On Wednesday I was trying to decide what basket I would like to photograph and our Recipe for Marriage caught my eye. A lovely wedding gift that includes items such as "A Recipe for Marriage" Poem Print by Bespoke Verse, "Perfect Husband & Wife" Matching Gift Mug Set, Chocolate Truffles and of course my favourite Moet & Chandon Champagne. I'm hoping to go to a Summer wedding this year and I might just have to get this for the beautiful bride and handsome groom. Do you know anyone getting married this year? Going to a wedding soon and trying to think of the perfect gift? Look no further, our Recipe for Marriage gift will turn heads and definitely make the happy couples day even more special! This particular one was ordered by a family in Alberta, Canada for a couple in Wales as they were unfortunately unable to make it over for their Wedding day.
Happy Thursday! Kate chose one of our more popular kids baskets to photograph this week, our Snuggle Time Girl Gift Basket. The perfect gift for a Get well or Birthday. My 7 year old niece would love this gift! She recently had surgery on her ears and I know this would brighten up her day and put a smile back on her face. Snuggle Time includes a Bunny Snuggable Hooded Blanket by Aroma Home, Candy Warmheart Heatable Rag Doll and Secret Diary by Rachel Ellen Design. Perfectly designed gifts for your little monsters. Also available in a boys version. This particular one was sent as a 'Welcome' gift from an entertainment company in California. They sent this gift to the owner of their new partner company in London as she has a little girl.
Freaky Friday! A beautiful birthday gift to finish the week. Our Sweet 16th Birthday Basket. This gift include everything a 16 year old girl could want. With items like "Happy 16th" Birthday Luxury Boxed Photo Album to capture all the memories,"Leave Laugh Save" Pot Of Dreams Money Pot to save all that birthday money and "Happy Birthday" Scented Candle Tin by Pintail to relax after celebrating. I wish someone got me this for my sweet 16th, although that was a long time ago so best not to dwell on the past. This 16th birthday gift was ordered all the way from Japan, a proud Auntie wanted to send her niece something special, for this milestone birthday occasion.
