Gift Baskets of Irish Origin

Almost 100% Irish Gift Baskets




Basketsgalore.ie is the new Euro Zoned online gift hamper and basket website catering for all those occasions when you want to send a gift, but find it difficult to get there in person.

The vast majority of our products are Irish. There are a few exceptions and the reason for this is that some things are not made in Ireland and that some products are so niche that they cannot be profitably produced in Ireland.

Let's take for example our "A Taste of The Organic Hamper",pictured above, which you can find at:

http://www.basketsgalore.ie/food-hampers/gourmet-gift-hampers.html


Look at the contents of this gift basket.
McCann’s Harvest Pure Apple & Pear Juice
Wyndham Estate Shiraz
Ummera Organic Smoked Salmon
Brady Family Connemara Air Dried Ham
Fivemiletown Oakwood Soft Smoked Cheese
FiveMileTown Ballybrie Soft Brie Cheese
Ditty’s Bakery Savoury Oatcakes
Seriously Sticky Orange & Apple Chutney by Offbeat
Olives et Al jar of Sunshine Olives
Fresh Bar Cake by Asher’s Bakery
Cottage Pride Raspberry Preserve
Mileeven Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey
Qi White Tea & Pomegranate Teabags
Ditty’s Traditional Shortbread
Coco Mango Sundried Fruit Snack by Forest Feast
Butlers Organic White Chocolate Bar with Raspberry Pieces

Qi Tea, Olives et al, Wyndham Estates, the Basket. A total of 17 items of which 4 are not made in Ireland. However, Ireland doesnt grow bamboo or wicker, so it can't manufacture baskets. Ireland can't produce wine, so we're left with Qi Tea and Olives et al. We included these products because Olives et al has superior packaging and better quality olives and we included the Tea once again because of its packaging and quality of taste. So 13 from 15 products are Irish.

However, the primary products within this gift basket, which make it stand out are really the Ummera Salmon, which is from Cork and the Connemara air Dried Ham, which is from the Brady Family. The cheeses are from Tyrone and the Apple Juice from Armagh with the jarred items made in Down by the Multi Award Winning OffBeat Company.
So in terms of value, the hamper is over 95% Irish if source of origin is an important purchasing decision.

So we may not be 100% Irish, but we're so close that you have got to question whether the small differential is worth the extra premium. Our prices are lower because we don't need to make as much money per basket due to our lower operating costs and larger volume of sales. Our main market is the UK, we compete with multi-million pound companies in England and Scotland. To do so, we rely upon our Irish suppliers to produce great quality products at a competitive price. They give our gift baskets a strong distinctive theme, but their quintessential Irishness is not their Unique Selling Point.

The reason for this is that Basketsgalore is a solution to your gift sending dilemma. You can send one of our hampers or gift baskets for all sorts of occasions and don't forget we also do the most beautiful Baby Gift Baskets for new born babies and new mothers and parents.

Christmas Hampers Ireland 2019

Christmas Shopping Begins This is our 16th year of packing Christmas Hampers, the 8th Christmas in our current facility. Our hampers are distinctive because we work ever so hard throughout the year to investigate new concepts and introduce new combinations. It is our mission to extract value through efficiencies of scale and operation, so that our customers are delighted with their Gift Hampers and Baskets. This invariably attracts the attention of those who understand the difficulty of packing and producing hampers and ask us to apply our gift packing skills. October and early November are extremely busy months for us as we contract pack other organisation’s Christmas hampers so they can appear in their shops. But from this moment on, we get to test the desirability of our gift creations which we developed in March. Christmas Hamper Offers For 2019 we have more than 200 Christmas Hampers available for purchase as a gift, but truth be told, ther

Fresh is best when it comes to Gift Baskets

It's as busy as ever today in the warehouse, the orders are flowing in thick and fast, but you'll only really see the difference in our full up warehouse next week when lots of our Gift Baskets and Hampers are out for delivery. Pre-packing must continue on if we want to stay ahead of schedule, our warehouse staff painstakingly pack each Basket by hand and decorate them with festive Christmas ribbon to give them that WOW factor we're renowned for! The freshness of our gifts is something we take very seriously , whether the content includes fresh deli meats, fresh salmon and ham or freshly baked treats such as biscuits, cakes and mince pies, we like to make sure that you the customer get as long as shelf life as possible for each individual product, thats why we leave pre-packing until December so that's it's as close as possible to popular Christmas dispatch dates.

BasketsGalore's Big Move - Revised Delivery Schedule

July 12-16 th BasketsGalore's Big Move Hi Folks, Over the past few years BasketsGalore has been steadily growing (with a lot of hard work) and we have moved premises a couple of times to help improve operations & bring you the best service possible. We last moved our Headquarters in October 2007 & this July (12-16 th July 2012) we have decided to coincide our move with a public holiday to minimise disruption to our delivery service. We aren't moving far (just across town), but gift baskets, hampers, boxes and all the stock take up a lot of room so it is going to take us a while to pack up here, move everything & unpack at the other end! This means that unfortunately there will be no deliveries available on Friday 13 th July & Monday 16 th July. There will also be no deliveries to Northern Ireland on 12 th July due to the Public Holiday. We will email to advise anyone who orders to NI for this date, as unfortunately we can’t turn it off in the calendar when
