Just got home from our 1 week DCL cruise and wanted to post that the roses lasted all week long! They were excellent quality and beautiful. Thanks, Perfect Gift!

Sorry I can't find the pictures, but Shirley did a great basket for DH on our 2005 cruise. He loves Goofy, so she did a large sand bucket with shovel, his name on it in Goofy stickers. Inside were a great orange mug, coffee, snacks, a Goofy watch, a Goofy T-shirt, and a few other goodies I can't remember right now. It was waiting in our room when we arrived, and boy was DH surprised! It was worth every penny!!!

Oh my, these sound and look gorgeous! I am definitely going to have to get one for DH for our Feb. cruise. Do you think she can put in Macanudo cigars? (Those are the small ones in the tin.) And Godiva chocolate bars, and champagne, and Mickey champagne glasses? Wow, there's so many possibilities. Do you just give her a list of everything you want, and then she shops for it and puts it together? Throwing in water and soda sounds good too, because that way we won't have to carry it on. I, too, want to think this through before I call so I don't leave anything out. I am so excited about this because I just went on the DCL site the other day to look at their offerings, and nothing really appealed to me. Great timing to have found this thread. How much lead time does she need? Thanks.

As promised, here are pics of the "baskets" we got in November. My DS isn't into pirates, so we got one with game paddles things and frisbee as well as chips and drinks. My DD got beach toys. They were even able to find a pink one for her! The kids really like the chips, since we really couldn't find chips (beyond regular Lay's onboard) and drinks (Gatorade & Capri Sun) because they really don't have those on board either. The folks at The Perfect Gift are really nice to work with. Thank you!

I am so glad that they held up as well as they did - the thing about the shop is that we do use high quality flowers regardless where they are going.
Hope your vacation cruise was a great one and come on down anytime.
Weather has been awesome
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
Always
Shirley

OMG the kids are adorable - your son has a grin that every child should have on their faces. Glad the kids had such a great time with their goodies and wish each of you a wonderful and blessed holiday.
Thank you for making it possible for the shop to stay open for without you, we couldn't have made it.
Thanks from my heart
Always
Shirley and Norm

Wish you would have had the pictures -

Melody made a fantastic basket for us for our Dwecember 5th cruise. We did get photos of it before we unpacked it and of all the loot after. I need to get DH to hepl me transfer the photos to the computer though--we have a new camera that I cannot yet operate well

I was stunned by how wodnerful it was. We moved to Germany last February and I wanted stuff for all of us that we cannot get here that we miss. Melody just had me list of all kinds of things and said she would see what she could get and it was chock full of pretty much EVERYTHING. She had rootbeer for DD, cream soda for DS, Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix for DH (which he was wishing for, not knowing about the basket, on the Wednesday before our Saturday departure--I called that late and she got that added in!!!!), york mints, Butterfingers, lots of Peanutbutter cups, whoppers, milk duds, cracker jacks and so many more goodies AND wine for DH and I in the cabin, a magazine surprise for me, frisbee for the beach, flashing pirate necklaces for the kids for pirate night, sodukos for the kids, etc. etc. We could not et over how great it was. We have a houseguest until Wednesday but I will try very hard to get photos up as soon as she leaves.

Shirley, please tell Melody we absolutely loved the bag

Talking sorry - no pictures handy . . .

I have ordered from Shirley quite a few times over the years. I travel with a sister that needs her diet pepsi! Each time I have called, I simply talk to Shirley about some of Linda's likes and dislikes and discuss what my budget is - and each time (I believe she has made us a "basket" for each of our 4 cruises) her baskets have been wonderful!!

The baskets look wonderful. What type of items are in adult theme baskets? What type of items are in a basket for a teenager? Any pictures would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.

I am working on getting photos up. In the meantime we had a mixed age basket. The adult things were;
wine, munchies, magazine . . .

Tween things (DD almost 13 and DS almost 11) were;
soda, munchies, flashing neckalces for pirtate night, frisbee, sodukos . . .

Sorry these pictures are really not very good. We only got one photo before the kids tore into the basket and my DS was acting crazy in it (pretending to eat the candy through the plastic). It was cuter than the blurry photo makes it appear;



Here you can see the bag and most of the contents. There were actually four kinds of each soda but the kids only put one of each in the photo and I think a box of candy was eaten by then as well:
