Congratulations! Time for celebration

There are so many occasions that warrant a proper celebration and plenty of congratulations....along with a round of applause and a massive hug.

We're not just talking babies, weddings, anniversaries and birthdays, either. From exam results to graduations, from new jobs to employee milestones, there are plenty of reasons to say 'congratulations' and mark a special occassion.

Here are just a few that you may need a special surprise gift for this year:

– Passing exams or assessments

– A-level results

– GCSE results

– Graduating

– Passing a driving test

– Getting a new job

– Getting a promotion

– An engagement

– Pregnancy announcement or gender reveal

– Moving house

If there is someone in your household or a close friend that deserves a special congraulatory gift,  what are you going to choose for them?

Consider what they like best. What will mean the most to them? What will truly mark the occasion and show them how proud you are? 

Here are four suggestions to get you thinking...

1. A surprise party

We love a gathering at and, even more, we love an excuse to throw a party.

Congratulate your loved one and mark their momentous achievement with a suprise party.

It can be a huge gathering of those who have been part of the journey or just a small soiree.

For employees and colleagues, simply gathering colleagues for a lunch or sharing a cake, can be a nice gesture to congratulate your staff member for thier achievement.

For family and friends, a surprise garden party can be a wonderful way to get everyone together and say 'Congratulations' in style- especially for a gender reveal, an engagement, or big promotion.

Have you seen our Prosecco Rosé Indulgence Hamper? It's got a gorgeous range of treats and a lovely bottle of a gorgeous keepsake willow tray.


2. A special bottle of fizz

There's no better way to mark a significant achievement than opening a special bottle of Champagne, Prosecco or English Sparkling Wine.

Raise a toast!

When only the best will do, select a bottle of Bollinger - the bottle can even be kept as a special momento...and don't forget to pop a coin in the cork for future good luck - a lovely extra when the congratulatory gift is for a new job or new home.

For a luxury Champagne gift, that is a wonderful keepsake, look no further than our Premier Cru Champagne and Glasses Gift. The glasses are a wonderful gift to mark a special achievement.

For those who prefer English Sparkling Wine, the English Sparkling Wine and Wicker Chiller Carrier is a stunning congratulations gift and perfect for summer celebrations.

For those who like their Italian fizz, we have a number of Prosecco gifts, including a Prosecco and Chocolates Hamper, with extra special delights to enjoy after the congratulatory toast.


3. A congratulatory gift hamper

There are times when you want to say congratulations but you can't be there in person.

A food and drink hamper, ordered online, and delivered to their door can be the perfect gesture.

Choose products you know they love or introduce them to something different and new.

Here at, you can choose from gifts based on what they enjoy doing - from gardening to cocktail making, as well indulging them in their guilty pleasure, including cheese and chocolate.

For those who have worked hard to pass their exams or latest assessments, a food hamper full of treats that can add to their relaxing longer full of course work or revision...will be gratefully received.

And, for those who have got a new job, announced an engagement or moved home, a traditional hamper can be a lovely way to mark this special occasion - giving them the chance to have some extra special beverages and utterly delicious food to celebrate with, as well as box, basket, wicker lidded basket or tray that they can keep and reuse.

This alcohol free hamper is the perfect gift for a pregnancy announcement, a gender reveal party or the new driver in your life...


4. An unexpected trip or outing

Our final recommendation is an 'all out' treat to say congratulations. Why not consider a special trip or outing?

Whisk your loved ones away! A couple of nights somewhere special to really make them feel special and to show them how much you recognise their achievement and their effort or hard word.

If a stay in hotel or spa is out of the question, don't forget we have some lovely pamper hampers - for an at-home spa experience.

If a holiday or city break is not feasible, how about a special day out? A congratulatory trip to a theme park, special city, seaside or museum, for example.

Round the day off with a lovely meal at a favourite pub or new 'must-try' restaurant.

Say congratulations in style with a full day of surprises.
