When asked to review this service, I chose Jones The Grocer gift voucher. Yes they have that as well including ACE Hardware, Toys R Us, and Babies R Us. Actually they have plenty of family friendly entertainment brands like Ferrari World, Yas Island, and VOX Cinema. They also have Plug Ins and Go Sport which means I need not look further for Father’s Day gift ideas in June.
The E-Gift arrived on my email yesterday and we are excited to try. I will update this post on Sunday to see how quickly I am able to redeem the Gift Voucher but frankly, I do not foresee any issues. I just wanted to share this with you quickly for May 11, 2014 is one celebration you should not miss to make Mothers anywhere in the world feel extra special.
Post Update: Sunday, May 11, 2014 / Mother’s Day
As promised I will share my experience on redeeming the gift voucher. And I had no problem at all! This despite the place being exceptionally busy on a Friday morning. For the uninitiated, Jones the Grocer is a gourmet food retailer originating in Australia. The aim is to give you a taste of contemporary Australian cuisine with international influence. It is especially famous for its walk-in cheese room and vibrant cafe offering natural ingredients sourced from its artisan groceries which you will also find on the shelves for customers to bring home.
The place was packed and buzzing with families enjoying late breakfast. I asked the staff in-charge of the till if they will honor my voucher. After a brief consultation with the store manager – it didn’t take two minutes – we were asked how we wanted to spend it: dine in, take-away, or do some grocery. Anyway we like it and Jones the Grocer will happily honor.
We were expecting family friends and since it is the weekend of Mother’s Day, I opted to use YouGotAGift voucher for goodies I can serve during afternoon tea. Little C was also quick to decide his own purchase: a tub of creamy, homemade strawberry ice cream, gluten free brownie bar (divine!), and another tub of yoghurt garnished with honey and figs. I asked for him to share a spoon and both were gorgeously melt in your mouth experience!
With the help of the smiling, polite staff, I asked for each of their best sellers. This also gave me the chance to inquire when is the best time to visit and secure a table: weekdays early morning as soon as the cafe opens for breakfast. I hope you noted that down, dear readers!
And here’s our Jones the Grocer inspired afternoon tea:
A very happy Mother’s day to everyone celebrating!
After purchase, I received an evaluation on my mail. Our verdict:
We had a wonderful experience with YouGotAGift.com. I am glad I chose to recommend it early on especially at the onset of a very special occasion. This gives you a chance to make someone feel very special despite the distance. Also a very good option to give for people who seem to have just about everything!
