Gearing up for Cyber Monday

Traditionally the 1st Monday in December is the busiest internet retailing day of the year. Which this year is Monday 6th December.

Why Monday? Well people spend the weekend looking for the perfect gift, then once they reach work on Monday morning when the shops in the non-cyber world open they go online and either make a start on or finish their Christmas shopping.

Why the first Monday in December? When the calender moves from November to December no matter how hard you have been putting it off Christmas becomes a reality and the previous years resolution to not leave it to the last moment rears up in your memory. Hence Cyber Monday.

Here at The Flower Stork our elves are geared up to despatch all those Christmas gifts to you. Happy Shopping!

The last year has brought a flurry of new arrivals and their seems to be a lot more blue ones than pink ones. We do sell slightly more new baby boy gifts here at The Flower Stork than new baby girl gifts. The split is about 60/40. Interestingly one of our plush suppliers sell their mixed boxes the other way 40/60.

My friend came home from hospital yesterday and was kind enough to give me a call last night to let me know how the first few days as a new mummy were going. Continue reading
