House Warming Gifting: Outdoor Entertaining

 

In this 3rd and final installment of the House Warming Gifting series, the focus is on outdoor entertaining, BBQ accessories, and food/wine products available in the Gibbons Company Basement department.

Even better than gifting a set of glasses (which are still useful), house warming hosts will love gifts for outdoor entertaining! Gibbons Company stocks its shelves with BBQ accessories like burger grill baskets, ceramic grilling pans and sauce brushes and grilling tools.

You should also consider gifting beverage accessories such as ice buckets, mixologist sets and of course a fun set of drinking glasses for magaritas and martinis.

Plus, you can give smaller items like the really safe flameless candles, available in sets and a range of colours for lighting ambiance!

Have a look below at some of our outdoor entertaining pieces that may peak your interest. You can also browse the Basement Department in the Gibbons Company Main Store at 21 Reid Street.

Gibbons Company wishes you a Happy Cup Match!

Cup Match was initially introduced after the abolition of slavery in Bermuda. Men from Somerset and St. George’s met in friendly rivalry and held celebrations of Emancipation by holding annual picnics to mark the anniversary of the abolition of slavery.

One of the highlights from the picnics was a friendly cricket match played between lodges from the east and west ends of the island. In 1901, during a cricket match between two major Friendly Societies, an agreement was made to play for an annual trophy. Members of the Friendly Societies and Lodges raised funds and in 1902 a silver cup that was played for annually was introduced. Cup Match was officially born.

In 1947 two official national public holidays were introduced and held annually on the Thursday and Friday closest to 1 August. The first holiday, Cup Match, was renamed Emancipation Day in 1999 and continued the tradition of remembering the end of slavery.

Have you ever seen something you love and can’t live without, but you find it for a cheaper price online or at another store?

 

Starting now, we’re offering you the Price Match Guarantee that allows you to get all your favourite products at competitive prices!!

 

Imagine you see an item being sold online for $27.05 but it is sold at Gibbons Company for $54.95. You decide to make your purchase online, because it appears you will be saving $27.90, but in actuality you have to consider the supplementary charges for duty, shipping weight, insurance, fuel surcharge plus any additional charges. By the time you actually receive your online item, you would have spent $69.53! If you had chosen to purchase the same item from Gibbons Company, you would have saved $14.58!!!

 

How it works:  If you find an identical item offered at Gibbons Company, and the cost is less than what is in our store, we will match that price when you buy the item at Gibbons Company! Now that is shopping satisfaction!! *You must present a current print advertisement within the last 7 days and the goods must be available to sell.

 

If your goods are from overseas, you must produce a current and valid price of the identical item(s) which must be available to sell. The quote must include the following;

 

  • Price of the item

  • Sales tax

  • Inland shipping to US delivery address

  • Duty on the item

  • Shipping charges to Bermuda

  • Fuel adjustment charge
