Thank you.Two of the most gracious words in the English language. They go a long way in conveying appreciation. Sometimes too long. Take the wedding speech. It begins when the new husband decides to thank the parents for bringing up such a wonderful bride. Thanks for Uncle Jack and Aunty Lil for cutting short their African safari tracking wandering wilder beast, just to be there. The bridesmaids for how beautiful they look, when in reality they look shocking in badly fitted dresses. The other aunts, uncles, nephews, cousins who the couple have rarely or never met and are unlikely to see ever again. A big thank you to the caterers for putting together nouvelle cuisine that has cost a fortune.
Thanks to the best man Nev, who gave an appalling speech that seemed to go on for hours, listing every embarrassing moment that the new husband was ever involved in. Thanks to the beverage blokes and waiters for topping up everyone’s drinks, so much so that they’ve had to get more, doubling the bill. And last, thanks to the blushing bride for being a beautiful person and “the only one for me.”
Well, thankfully there are other and less interminable ways of saying thank you. At The Complete Basketcase, you might like to start with a With Thanks Gift Basket. There’s a fresh and vibrant sparkling champagne zinging with apples and pears, hazelnut crème filled cookies, chocolate coated lollies, shortbread crèmes with tangy passion fruit, fruit and nut mix, snack mix, a Toblerone chocolate bar and Pink lady soft filled chocolates.
If you’re feeling more magnanimous, what about a Thanks a Bunch Gift Basket. Front and centre is a luscious Gipsie Jack 2013 Sauvignon Blanc and there’s a special “Thanks a Bunch” inspirational gift book. The basket is groaning with goodies like shortbread, luxury tea pouches, award winning chocolate, pretzels, kalamata olives, fruit mix, salted peanuts, caramilised peanuts and cashews. You can also choose the Thank You Gift Basket. It has similar goodies, and there’s a smooth, fruity Gipsie Jack 2013 Shiraz for those who love their reds.
Saying thank you isn’t hard to do. The girls at The Complete Basketcase know exactly how it’s done. They can put together the right basket that can convey the ideal sentiment. Our entire range of gift baskets and hampers are available with same day delivery to both Melbourne and Sydney.
