Has One of Your Staff Members Just Become a New Mum
While it can be a bit of a hard time for business when one of your team is off on maternity leave, there’s no denying that it’s an exciting time for them, and around the office, too. When little bub is born it’s almost like they’re a little junior member of the team too!
When one of the ladies in the office has a baby it’s time to show your support and congratulations. Since they won’t be in the office for a little while (until they’re ready to come for a mini-visit to show off their new baby!), a gift basket is a perfect way to go for a timely gift to show you’re all thinking about her.
Delivery of our baskets is super prompt Australia wide, with delivery times ranging from same day delivery to the Sydney metro area, next day delivery to Melbourne, Brisbane, and Canberra metro, 1-2 business days to most other areas, and 3-5 for country orders. This means that as soon as you know that mum has had her bub, you can place your order, and by the time that she arrives home from the hospital it’ll be waiting at her home for her.
A clever idea that some customers do with us is to select a gift basket before the baby arrives, so you can simply send it straight away as soon as you’ve found out that mum has given birth. Some of our corporate clients have made their own special baby congratulations baskets that they send out to every mum in the company.
Gift baskets make for a lovely surprise and show that you are thinking about your employees. While some mums decide to return to work, and some don’t, letting her know that you’re thinking about her means that she sees that she’s a valued employee in the company.
New mums that are kept in contact with over their maternity leave in a positive manner may feel more compelled to return to the workplace if they are umming and ahhing about returning once their paid maternity leave is up. This makes a gift basket even more of a great way to show that the team misses them and would love to have them back whenever they’re good and ready to return to work.
Our range of gift baskets at Gift Baskets Direct come in all shapes, sizes and varieties – there really is something for everyone. You might like to choose a baby specific gift or one that you think mum will enjoy more! Make sure to include a congratulatory note from the company that’s heartfelt. Order your basket so that it shows up for mum when she gets home from the hospital to put a smile on her face.
