Every December my parents would be in Malaysia for their annual holiday except for last years December 2012. So my sister and I decided to throw a family getaway. We went to Bright.
What makes a perfect getaway for you? For us its, FOOD! Glorious food!
I decided to surprise my parents with this wonderful hamper, ‘Simply Delicious’ from Interflora. It is packed full of goodies to munch on; on our way there, during our stay and on the way back. We had honey coated peanuts to keep us entertained in the car on our 3 hour journey; for our afternoon teas we had those soft melting moments (which are to die for); for our movie night we had chocolate coated honeycomb and caramel popcorn; as for our picnic in the park…we enjoyed chilli & garlic marinated olives with some savoury cheese biscuit straws, wafer crackers dipped in mild chunky salsa and apricot & macadamia dip. This had us pretty much covered for the entire trip. Except of course one hamper wasn’t enough, it was more of a tasting platter for the 7 of us. I did mention that this hamper was originally for my parents, right? Of course it was too good to resist so we all digged in!
There were a few things that I loved about Interflora online. One, their website is very user friendly. The theme is so easy on the eye, navigating through categories and browsing at my own pace was very relaxing and enjoyable. As a designer myself, I find this point really important. The first look is what matters the most – to attact your customers, not push them away from being overwhelmed by products.
Secondly, I liked how they incorporated a few ‘extras’ to complement your purchase to make it even special. I added an extra teddy bear so I could hand it to my daughter during our trip. You can add a flower, balloon etc.
And lastly,Interflora delivers internationally! By a click of a button, its on its way to being delivered without having to worry. This is a big bonus for us as we have a lot of relatives overseas.
Unfortunately I am not able to share any personal photos of the hamper content as my camera phone was stolen! *sigh*
However, hop on over to Interflora and be amazed by what they have to offer. You will surely find something that will suit your needs and budget.
