Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket of the Day 18.01.18

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….

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket of the Day 23.11.17

I think this might be our last week of Daily Dispatch blog posts? I think? Not sure. I guess I should really confirm with the team since it would be very difficult to remove ourselves from the large volumes of Christmas Orders processing to take pictures and write a blog post next week. I can’t believe it’s Christmas already! Where did the time go? It felt like only yesterday that…

Baskets Galore Customer Gifts – Fruit & Flower Gifts 03.08.17

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…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Basket of the Day – 14.07.17

Of course, working in the office, the first thing you usually do when you arrive in work is to turn on the computer. In yesterday’s case, mine first task of the day was to answer the phone even before I could get my computer on. So it was that I was testily stretching the phone cable to its furthest reach whilst struggling to press the power on button on my…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 06.04.17

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,…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 16.02.17

It felt like I spent forever taking pictures in the warehouse today, mainly because I spotted a really rare hamper which is filled with pamper items instead of food items, and I was running around trying to find all the pamper items. As you can see, I didn’t really succeed. Now, you may say “Kate, all the items are in the hamper; why run around for them?” to which the…

Basket of the Day – 10.02.17

With Valentine’s Day just on the horizon, we had started dispatching some of the Valentine orders a little earlier as requested. As such, the warehouse was chock-a-bloc filled with romance, love and sweet nothings in baskets. Rather than writing about a Valentine basket for today’s dispatch blog though, because I’m sure it would be covered on next Monday’s dispatch where it’s Valentine’s day dispatch proper, I decided to go with…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 01.02.17

You shall be getting Déjà vu folks, as I again have some wonderful (and popular) Gift Hampers.  I was surrounded by gorgeously gourmet Hampers but there was quite a lot of similar Hampers as we have our regular popular Hampers that NEVER miss an appearance on the dispatch bench. Kicking us off is the Artisan Fayre  (Déjà vu?) which today is in high numbers for dispatch, our customer in LONDON is…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 26.01.17

Where did the month go? It just felt like the start of January not too long ago and now we’re at the end of it? In part, that is probably my fault since I had taken a few days off here and there for appointments and being unwell. So maybe because I worked less this month, it felt like it’s flying by? That or my burying myself nose deep in…

#HappyHumpDay Folks, it’s great we are working our way through this week and the weekend is almost in our sights.

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 18.01.17

I had a right panic when I walked into the warehouse today. I thought all the hampers were boxed up and I’d have to figure out some way to procure a hamper from somewhere to photograph. Thankfully, that was not so and I managed to round up four different hampers to share with you guys. The above is a Cheesy Thank You Wine hamper. It’s like Cheesy Sunshine, but in…

I will finish this ‘Tough Tuesday’ off with some bright and beautiful Fruit Gift Baskets that can certainly cheer you up by just looking at them. I was memorised by my first pick, a Create Your Own Gift Basket made by our customer in CANADA to friends in LONDON to celebrate the birth of their Son. Next up is the Maxi Team Hamper which has been ordered for this first time today! This…
