1st Birthday Gifts: Theo Turns One

September 21, 2017

As I write this I still can’t quite believe it, but my little baby turned a big 1 last month. The past year seems to have gone by so quickly, although at the time the sleepless nights seemed very long! For my older son’s 1st birthday we had a big monkey themed birthday party for him, and so we didn’t want Theo to miss out. Luckily our new house has a bit…

I’m actually going to be off next week for my summer holidays, so I figured I’d take on the Basket of the Day blog duty for this week to let the girls be extra refreshed for the blog next week (where they’d have to cover my blog day as well – sorry!) Today’s basket of the day is actually pretty special. Roma wasn’t in early this morning so I was…

Last week, I featured gift baskets for little girls; so this week, let’s balance it out and feature one for boys! The above is the Marvel-ous Mad gift basket, perfect for any young (age 6+) superhero fan out there. It has not only your own ‘Spidey’ action figure (which shoots webs from his arms; I can envision them terrorising mummy and daddy with it already) but also a 100 piece…

My little niece, Eevie was born over the weekend, so you’d imagine with my obsession of taking pictures of baby baskets all the way leading up to the birth, I’d continue with even more frenzy? Ah, but you’re wrong. I was tempted, yes, but ultimately didn’t. Why? Maybe because the babygrows in the basket reminded me a bit too vividly of how she threw up aaaaaaall over me last night…

It is always typical that the moment you are planning to finish work for the day, something crops up and suddenly you have to stay behind. That was exactly what happened to me on Tuesday. I had all packed up, ready to go home (and wrestle with my uncooperative car which refuse to start up) and then lo behold! A live chat message popped up. The lovely Sujata urgently required…

Customer Focus: Little Clove Cat To The Rescue

We recently received an email from Sarah in Cork, asking for our help in sourcing not one, but two toy mice. Reading further on into her email it turned out that she had received one of our baby gift baskets when her twins were born last year, and the girls had become very attached to the little cuddly “mice” that were inside it. We immediately knew the toy she meant…
