Baby Hamper Buying Guide
Saturday, 11 August 2012 | The Baby Hamper Company
So you want to send a baby hamper to a friend, relative or client but have no idea how to do it. Well, not to worry, as this blog post is here to help you.
First thing you need to decide is what’s the occasion or event? You’ll want to get an appropriate baby hamper for the occasion. With this thought in mind, we’ve tried to keep our website simple and straight forward. On the homepage in navigation menu , you’ll see that we have various categories and styles of hampers for many different occasions. Browse the different categories and see if there’s a baby hamper you like. But that’s not all.
If you’re not too concerned about a particular occasion and just want to send a nice new baby gift, you might want to try and create your own hamper. In the navigation bar, you’ll see the link: create your own personalised baby hamper. Making your own baby hamper gift means that from our list of categories, you can choose from an adorable range of baby clothes, toys, baby accessories, blankets, etc., that you want in your hamper gift. It’s quite a popular way for customers (and our corporate orders) to personalise baby hampers and you can delete any item at any time if something isn’t right. It also has the added benefit of keeping your hamper costs under control. If the cost of the hamper is higher than you wanted to pay, simply delete off a few items until you have the desired price you want to pay. Once you have exactly what you want, you simply proceed to checkout and finalise your purchase and arrange delivery.
If you’ve decided to make your own hamper but not sure what to add to your hamper, here’s a few helpful suggestions. You might want to start by looking at some of our prearranged hampers to get some ideas. We have hampers for new mums, baby shower hampers, Baby's First Christmas hampers and the list goes on and on. Good rule of thumb, always look at each item and visualise how they will all look together in one hamper. Try doing a themed hamper that might have bear baby gifts, or rabbit baby gifts. Once you start thinking about it, the possibilities are endless.
Hopefully, you’ve now got a good idea of what kind of hamper you want. As you’re proceeding through to checkout, you’ll be asked if you’d like to add a personal message to your gift. I highly recommend doing this. There’s nothing more frustrating to a recipient than receiving a lovely gift but having no idea who sent it. We’ve actually had recipients phone us to ask why they received a baby hamper from us. It only takes a few minutes and all personal messages are printed on luxury cards and attached to the top of each hamper.
As you’re finalising your transaction in checkout, you have two methods of payment, SagePay or Paypal either of which you don't need to have an account already set up. If you are using SagePay Checkout, please make sure that the delivery name and address are completely filled out. By including the delivery phone number, correct county and postal code, you’ll be aiding in a smooth, trouble free delivery that arrives on time without any unnecessary delays. If you’re using Paypal, don’t forget to edit your delivery name and address as you’re completing the transaction. Thus, when we receive the order details, we’ll have all the required information available.
If you have a preferred delivery date, especially at Christmas, we have a very easy way to do this. After completing your transaction at checkout, immediately email us at email@example.com to let us know of your delivery preferences. Simply copy and paste your completed transaction number with your name and tell us your preferred delivery date. Once we receive your email, we’ll confirm back that your order will be delivered on your requested date. It’s that simple and we do this all year long. So, if you’re in a hurry, this will make gift giving a lot easier for you.
All of our baby hampers are carefully hand wrapped and packed securely by caring people. As a final touch, we always present our hampers with a beautiful red ribbon bow and your personal gift card message, just as you would have done yourself. Not only do our hampers have beautiful and useful gifts inside them, but are very attractively displayed as well. One final thought, if you are ever unsure of anything, you can always give us a call.
