This morning I opened my door to a courier delivering a parcel. Not an unusual thing as such. The Australia Post parcel delivery guy is here so often delivering review copies of books that he’s almost one of the family. This parcel, however, was not a book.
Yes, that’s right, it is possible to receive a parcel that isn’t a book. Who would have believed it? Not my children, certainly, who are now extremely blasé about parcels arriving and hardly bat an eyelid anymore.
Anyway, to return to the original topic. A courier arrived with a parcel that wasn’t a book.
Would anyone like to guess what it was? Anyone? Anyone?
It was CHOCOLATE!!!!! Yes, that’s right. I had chocolate personally delivered to my doorstep this morning and it wasn’t even my birthday. Meredith, bless her little cotton socks, had decided to send me a little pick-me-up. Isn’t she sweet?!
This wasn’t just a block of Cadbury Dairymilk in a postpack though. This was one of the awesome lolly gift boxes from the amazing Rainbow Designs.
Owned and run by Jacqui Halls, Rainbow Designs offers a range of lolly/sweets noodle boxes as an alternative to flowers and gift hampers. I have used this website for thank you gifts for teachers, thinking of you gifts for new mums and thought-you-could-do-with-a-sugar-hit gifts for tired, stressed out friends.
Prices range from around $21.50 upwards (prices include postage within Australia). Today I received the amazing Buddy Box with over 500g of freckles, choc buds, caramel buds and white buds. Yummo. There are also a range of lolly boxes suitable for Christmas, Mothers’ Day, Easter, Weddings and other special events.
Well, I’d love to keep telling you all about Rainbow Designs and their wonderful gift ideas, but I can hear my Buddy Box calling from the back of the pantry (where I hid it so that the children wouldn’t find it). So, you’ll have to visit Jacqui at the Rainbow Designs website to get more info. Beware. It’s an enticing site and you might just end up deciding that you deserve a little treat yourself!
