Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket of the Day 09.11.17

Sometimes, you walk out to see the baskets and one of them really pop out at you. Sometimes, like today, I go out and I can’t get inspired by any particular one. That’s saying our gift baskets are not inspirational – rather it’s’ the complete opposite; you’re spoilt for choice. So on these occasions, I try to navigate the blog on my phone for something I haven’t covered recently –…

As I had mentioned before, a few months ago, I had caved and hopped onto the adult colouring book bandwagon that seems to be taking the world by storm and not planning to slow down any time soon. I’m ashamed to say that I am still on the same colouring book as I started with, it’s surprisingly thick in pages and you’d think a simple picture wouldn’t take that long…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Basket of the Day – 21.07.17

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…

Hands up here, who is having a very bad hayfever season this year? Well, my hand is way, way up and up faster than the speed of light (if possible) My hayfever had been awwwwwful. I feel like I’m walking around with a box of tissues permanently armed to my side, and right eye is itchy and running so bad that the skin around it is a little scaley. Urrrrgh,…

I had originally lined up a baby basket for photography today, mainly because it was called New Mother’s Survival and my little sister is barely surviving with her precious bundle of joy (another sleepless night last night apparently), I even had the pictures all done! But then I walked into the assembly area and saw all the Father’s Day baskets and thought I should really take the chance to show…

Cocoa Republic: Chocolate Bars Created By You

June 6, 2017

Last Thursday, we got a call from one of our suppliers, James Chocolates enquiring about some chocolate samples they sent us. Chocolate Samples? There was Chocolate Samples? Cue an instant quick rummage through out post and indeed! There was a slim package with three bars of chocolate inside. And of course, the moment ‘chocolate samples’ was mentioned and uncovered, I was over nosying at it faster than you can think…

Sometimes, our customers create baskets which are so great looking, it is very hard not to share them. This is the case with one of today’s customer creations. Stephen (Stevenage, UK) chose all the items of this basket with the recipients, Samantha & Family, in mind, and it’s positively filled to the brim with goodies! Even Cozy Hottie Bunny there in the back corner looked a little cramped with candle,…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 18.05.17

The team had been commenting on the recent extra popularity of our The Gourmet: Oceania hamper, So I thought, okay! I’ll go take a picture of that one and take about it in the blog. Fate didn’t have it in me with that hamper though. Because I walked by a different hamper and maybe because it was just before my lunch and I was extra peckish or something, but I…

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…

Okay, so we have a custom gift basket heading out today and the customer specifically requested for our Star Wars Lego Set to be included within the contents. Okay, no biggie, the team made it up, then one of our office staff took a picture of it. Only problem is, the picture then ended up in my hands with instructions to jazz it up to feature on the Basket of…

Wow! You guys have certainly been busy creating your own baskets and hampers recently! Just today, I had spotted 4 customised hampers sitting together in the packaging area. I cannot even imagine how many more there is still not ready yet. The customer creation on the top left was put together by Sheila (Glasgow, UK). It contains coffee, tea, hot chocolate and a golden Easter Egg to help the recipient,…

With one blogger down, we had recently decided to change up the dispatch format to just one basket/hamper per dispatch blog rather than three. Okie-dokie, on the plus side, it meant taking photographs of the products are a LOT faster now that we’re just dealing with 3 baskets instead of 9, also you won’t feel guilty about holding up a team of warehouse staff from their packing duties simply because…
