JanetAustralia4 star - The Amethyst
Our daughter was delighted with the hamper that she collected recently from the nearby pharmacy, and with the earlier one that you delivered before Christmas. Our friend in Norwich was similarly pleased to receive her pre-Christmas hamper. We parents in Australia would have been happier had you been able to arrange actual delivery to our daughter's home recently, However we understand that delivery to the pharmacy was agreed with our daughter. We will be very happy to order future hampers from You have a wide range of attractively presented gifts. This recent gift to our daughter was of a special treat nature. However at Christmas we usually look for varied collections of special foodstuffs that would be useful to someone living on their own and not gifts with a heavy emphasis on just sweets or large amounts of alcohol and accompaniments.

Lizzie ListerUK5 star - The Amethyst
"I just wanted to drop you a note to say how delighted I was with the service you have provided and also the quality of the wine hamper. I had a very bad experience with Interflora when using their hamper service and ended up ringing daily to find out where the hamper was - it went missing and when it was eventually found the courier (DHL) failed until 6 days after the delivery date given, for a 70th birthday and to rub salt into the wound, it was not a great product.

Yours, however, was exceptional and you delivered exactly when you said you would and my mother was delighted with her gift - thank you! I will continue to use you in the future. Please could you pass on my thanks to all concerned. Best wishes"
