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.

Hen Night Gifts Ireland

A few of us in the office were away on my hen weekend recently & it inspired us to create a new range of hen night gifts . We had noticed people ordering pamper hampers or wine & chocolate gift baskets for hen night presents before, but until now we haven't had gifts designed especially for hen do's. Hen Night gifts are popular to send if you are unable to make the hen night, but still want to be a part of it & show you are thinking of them. They are also good to have as an arrival treat in your hotel room, apartment or B&B. Some companies that book hen activities or weekends, like to offer a Hen Gift Basket as an arrival gift. Our Hen Party Gift Baskets typically include some bubbly or wine cooler drinks, sweets, crisps, snacks, nuts & lots of chocolates to share! We have also included a few cheeky accessories for the blushing bride, such as 'Bride To Be' sashes & pink fluffy L Plates! So basically everything the hens need to get the part

Flowers For Mum Gifts

Our most popular Gift Basket For Mum of all time has to be 'Mother's Day Flowers & Treats'. This is actually kind of amusing as it is somewhat against our original aim to be the "alternative to flowers". Instead of ignoring flowers completely, as let's face it they are still an extremely popular choice of gift, we decided to embrace them in a different manner. Rather than trying to compete with local florists who will always be able to present a more attractive bouquet than one having to travel through a delivery network, we came up with the idea of a flowering PLANT. This attractive floral plant could then accompany a smaller basket of treats to provide the end receiver the best of both worlds. Historically the 'Mother's Day Flowers & Treats' gift was pitched at a discounted, popular price point and it would be updated slightly each year for repeat Customers. The focus of the basket was on food and this was accompanied by a pretty fl
