Bears are a funny thing you know. Some of us form quite a strange attraction to them. They somehow take on a human form. They’re given odd names. And when they lose an eye, an ear, an arm or a leg, well sympathy knows no bounds. They have to be immediately repaired. They just can’t be left looking forlorn and battered in the corner of the room. And these cuddly things are often kept for years, sometimes passed down through generations as a reminder of childhood folly and friendship.


The popping of champagne on the other hand is a moment of celebration of all sorts. Birthdays, business wins, births. It also includes divorce, as for some it is a great moment of relief. There’s the launch of a ship, which is an absolute waste of good bolly (even if Her Majesty is hurling it). I don’t know why they don’t just cut the ribbon and be done with it; after all, you wouldn’t smash a huge bottle of champagne across the bonnet of your new car! There’s a time for champagne at Christenings and there’s the opening of course of expensive champagne at parties where everyone hasn’t a clue what quality they’re gulping down in large quantities. Your wallet has taken a real hammering in your desire to keep everyone merry. But in reality, you might as well have served Chateau le Fizz for a fraction of the price.



At The Complete Basketcase, we do know the meaning of a cuddly bear and the quality of good champagne wrapped up in a quality gift hamper. That’s why you can send Celebrating Baby. It includes a vibrant bottle of fine sparkling Australian wine with zingy finish of apples and pears, an adorable fuzzy bear perfect for kids big and small, assorted delicious milk chocolates stars and hearts, all presented in a very attractive storage box. There’s also the Bear and Bubbles Chocolate bouquet. Pop the cork of a Chandon Sparkling Brut Rose, with the extremely cuddly “I love you” teddy bear, along with fifteen deliciously creamy chocolate hearts and stripes from Chocolate Gems. For the romantic types, there’s Bear ‘n Bubbles. Nothing says, “I love you,” more than an adorably cute Tatty Teddy holding a pair of giant red lips. Except maybe an adorable Teddy holding a pair of red lips and a lovely bottle of Chandon Brut.
