Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket of the Day 23.01.18

It’s nearly time to wrap up another work day! I was lucky enough to be able to get a quick picture of this beautiful basket before it was boxed for shipping. This is being dispatched to a lady who has been under the weather & her friends overseas decided to treat her to our amazing ‘Queen of Pamper Basket’ They even added in a few extra treats for her. I…

My phone broke over Christmas, so the daily dispatch photos actually gives me a chance to play with the camera of my new phone. Already I could see a difference. New phone is sharper and clearer, but carries a naturally ‘cool’ tone in pictures, but old phone is less focused (seriously, I have to take 5+ of the same picture to get 1 clear one) and produces ‘warmer’ looking pictures….

Hands up whose dad isn’t feeling the best today? Well, my hand is definitely up. It’s not often that my dad feels unwell, so when he does, it’s a sudden surprise and it feels like everybody is working and revolving all their tasks around him. E.G. he was supposed to go with my mum to leave their car into the garage for some maintenance work, not anymore! Guess who went…

After a few weeks of single gift baskets of the day blog, I finally have enough time to do the standard 3 daily dispatch posts – of course, now that I said that, watch as next week have me snowed under a pile of work again and have to resort back to single daily dispatch blogs. First basket to cover is the fruit and flowers gift. Neat and petite, I…

This time last year, I think I was obsessed with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries because of the summer weather. This year though, my fruit cravings are plums, peaches and nectarines. As such, this Classic Fruit basket simply looks divine to me. Plums! Yummy yummy plums! I wonder if I could pinch one or two for lunch…. nah, just kidding, I brought my own. What would the team think of me…

Is this going to turn into a week of a Kate and Laura Daily Dispatch blogs? It’s almost like seems like it is. Anyways, today is much busy! Very busy! I didn’t get any of my own work again! It was all tracking this order, calling this hospital, calling this customer, hunting down that house number, organising that re-delivery, emailing this courier, and that courier etc. In fact, it’s a…

With my cousin’s little girl’s birthday on Sunday, you’d think I would be trying to spot some potential gift ideas out in the warehouse to. Except….nope, I completely forgot and the upstairs storage area where all the non-food items (ie. toys, pamper goods etc) are kept is being shuffled around so I can’t even go upstairs for ideas because I’d just get in the way and be trampled underfoot or…

Last week, I was away to Poland for my summer holiday, and boy was it warm over there….. and wet too… And it seems like I brought the rainy weather back over here – whoops! However, it seems like the rainy weather is finally disappearing because today is warm and so far not a single drop of rain in sight. And with the sun finally coming out, it makes me…

At this moment in writing, my cousin is currently in hospital having her second child. So in between all my basket and hamper picture taking, my phone kept being bombarded with messages as all the relatives and friends are popping into the group chat to see if the baby arrived yet. So it is that when I saw a fruit basket in the warehouse which is being sent to a…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket Dispatches 29.06.17

I saw Andrea had been doing one blog for the daily dispatches recently and was wondering maybe if I should experiment with it and see how it goes. Well, I say ‘experiment’ but really, I am just too hungry for lunch to have the energy to think up 3 different blog posts into paragraphs. Plus, this way means that you readers don’t have to sit and read (or scroll) through…

Happy first day of June! Let’s hope the weather becomes warmer from this point on! Though if you’re like me and rather dread warm weather because it meant prime hayfever season, I guess you’re probably not looking forward to it too much. In fact, here’s a picture I drew did a few years ago (excuse the messy linework) on how I feel about this season. So it is that I…

My mum, who works in a supermarket, came home last night with, I kid you not, at least 9 punnets of strawberries. She got them all at a reduced price in work because they were past their display date and really do look rather worse for wear, I think she sat and picked through about 2-3 punnets and threw away half of them because they were smushed up and mould…
