For some, there are so many. The first job after telling the HR guy you intend to be running the company in a year or so. Staying away from delicious, juicy burgers and fries for a month to drop a few kilos and have friends say “gee, you’ve really lost weight…you look great”. Finally celebrating the moment when Liverpool wins the treble; Championship, FA and European Cup. Now that would be a monumental milestone. Another obvious one. Giving up the ciggies. That is a cause for celebration, because not only will you get your health back, but some old friends as well.
There’s the turning twenty one milestone. It gives permission to create havoc and do anything you want, if you haven’t already. Going to the same hairdresser for donkeys’ years is a milestone. It’s also a bit of a worry when you’ve still got the same haircut. Having a mechanic that’s serviced and somehow managed to get your rundown beast back on the road year after year is a significant milestone. There’s the job milestone of course where you you’ve been there for it seems like an eternity, and all you’re going to get is a silver pen, a one candle cake and a “thanks for the memories speech”.
Well, the girls at The Complete Basketcase view on milestones is simply enjoy the moment with something special. Like a gift boxed Golden Ranges Sauvingon Blanc and Cabernet Merlot, which also comes with some rather delicious Pink Lady cream filled truffles. The In Appreciation Gift Basket is a real cracker because not only do you get a fine bottle of Chalk Hill McLaren Vale Sangiovese, but a basket load of tasty goodies. Crunchy macadamia shortbread, Ballantyne chocolate covered sultana and nut mix and award-winning Byron Bay chocolate coated coffee beans. Now if it’s something major, you have to go for the Magical Milestones. Delicious Chandon Sparkling Brut, 2 flutes, assorted milk chocolate stars/hearts and 12 Fererro Rocher chocolates. Magnifique!
If you’re looking for a stylish way to celebrate a milestone, then don’t hold back. Talk to the girls at The Complete Basketcase. They’ll show you how to mark the moment with a special wine gift hamper. You’ll certainly remember it more than the silver pen.
