Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket of the Day 21.11.17

I assume in every city/town Christmas lights are on and markets are open now. It’s Christmas!! Also, our American friends is celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend.  It is described as the beginning of the holiday season. I noticed we have loads of orders being prepared for this occasion. I chose one example to showcase for you. Artisan Scran  is a deliciously fresh gourmet hamper filled with a selection of great taste award winning…

Baskets Galore Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 26.10.17

It was my sister’s wedding anniversary last week. Do sisters usually send happy anniversary presents? Hope not? Because I didn’t get her any! I did however volunteer to help babysit her 5 month old, and successfully for drooled on excessively (she’s teething and going through bibs faster than you can wash and dry them). You might not get an anniversary present for your sibling, but you might get ones for…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket of the Day 19.10.17

This week, we are dispatching a number of corporate gift baskets and hampers for a plethora of reasons. Mostly they are thank you gifts, but we also have a batch of new home gifts, a few birthday gifts sprinkled in and one or two ‘welcome to the company’ kind of gifts heading out too. One of our more frequent corporate clients had asked us to send out a number of…

Baskets Galore Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 11.10.17

I always enjoy seeing a more unusual Gift Hamper going out, as we like to be able to show you a range rather than always the same best sellers. So when I spotted an order for our Lions Hammersmith Extra Hamper I immediately knew I would be including it in today’s Daily Dispatch Blog. Unfortunately the warehouse had other ideas as they already had it packed to perfection when I…

Baskets Galore Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 05.10.17

I’m working with a bit of a limited photography workspace today because the packaging area was already filled with hampers going out, and also with another photography session going on, so I only had something like a small corner of the worktop to work with. No worries, I grabbed a Baskets Galore background and propped it up to separate my chosen hampers and baskets from the others and worked away….

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket of the Day 04.10.17

I was rather dreadfully sick in the latter half of last week, and whilst I was lying there in my bed, surrounded by a miniature mountain range of used tissues and sounding like a dying zombie, I was thinking of three things: Poor Roma have to do 4 blog days in a row because Andrea is away on holiday in the sunshine, and I’m away in awful-land because of some…

Christmas Hampers 2017 Coming Soon…

It’s hard to believe we’re almost half way through September already! Just out of interest I looked up how long it is until Christmas and it’s just over 100 days! We LOVE Christmas at BasketsGalore, as it’s our busiest time of year and there’s such a buzz about the place. Over the past few months we’ve been busy planning, sourcing, creating, pricing and photographing our Christmas Hampers for 2017. We’re…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 24.08.17

It’s currently around 3 in the afternoon, which is perfect afternoon tea time. So of course, if you send me out into the warehouse for photos at this time of the day, I’m just going to zero in on the goodies you would typically accompany a cup of tea with. So it should be no big surprise that I came back with a hamper filled with bakery goods, right? This…

Baskets Galore Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 03.08.17

Okay, so we all know how much I love mango, right? Wait? You didn’t know? Gasp! I even have made a tag on this blog so that every time I mention the word mango, it will be tagged. I even wrote a blog all about it way back when! ….even though I am very mildly allergic to mango… but hey, I am allergic to a lot of things; in fact,…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 13.07.17

It just seems like some weird luck that one day my sister is begging me to bring home a chocolate cake to satisfy her chocolate craving, I went out and bought said cake, then of course two chocolate cakes would then land on my lap the very next day, for free. Granted, the free cakes were given to me because they were too close to their sell by date to…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 06.07.17

More than a few times, I had spoken of how much I marvel at the warehouse team’s ability to pack everything into one container so perfectly. They surely must be amazing in puzzle games, Jenga blocks and Tetris. Each time I dare unpack a hamper just a liiiiiiittle bit, and even if I memorise exactly where each item was supposed to go, it still doesn’t seem to quite fit that…

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…
