The Greats Awards 2017

Yesterday the lovely Dave, our master parcel packer and warehouse operative was given a day off with a difference.  Last year Gifts From Handpicked were overwhelmed to be winners of the The Greats Awards category Best Online Retailer and this year we made it to the finals again.  We decided as it was Dave's Wedding Anniversary to reward him with a day off, first class train travel and a lunch fit for a king in the glitzy ballroom of The Grosvenor House Hotel on London's Park Lane.  A champagne reception, 7 course lunch and a bottle of red wine was a lovely way to spend a Wedding anniversary!!

Back at the office we tuned into twitter as the results were announced live.  Unfortunately this year it wasn't to be but we still came away proud.  For those of you that don't know our history Gifts From Handpicked was launched 9 years ago from a redundancy situation.  Working from a spare bedroom with an airing cupboard for a store room, then moving house and building a double garage with upstairs office, Gifts From Handpicked is now bursting at the seams of a warehouse, has 5 staff , ships worldwide and stocks over 2000 products. I was told the other day that I don't shout from the rooftops our achievements but in fact Gifts From Handpicked is a well know brand in the Gift Industry, with two trophy's in the cabinet and a wall full of certificates and a tenth anniversary looming.  Not bad for a mum of two, previous caterer who is known for being crazy with a unique sense of humour!
