Improvements to Basketsgalore in Ireland

Efficiency of Gift Basket Operations.

Basketsgalore will be investing once more in its infrastructure this summer in order to further drive down the cost of providing gift baskets and hampers throughout the all of Ireland. Even now it appears that it is better value for gift basket and hamper consumers to order their gift from us in Ireland and then pay the shipping to Western European countries rather than use a company based on the European Mainland.

In Ireland, Basketsgalore is determined to continue to extract efficiencies of operation, which we simply have to do in order to compete with large scale British companies in the intensely competitive UK market. So we are designing our own bespoke operational processing floor, which will enable the company to assemble your gift baskets quicker and even better.

The layout will resemble that of a large hotel kitchen with multiple stainless steel work services and catering bench fridges. We'll also be operating a just in time work process, which is particularly important at Christmas since speed of assembly translates into lower gift hamper costs for our customers.

We have noticed many businesses doing one of three things.
1) Reducing the sizes of their products, this years Easter Eggs being a prime example, which were 15% smaller than last year.
2) Raising Prices to cover increasing costs
3) Lowering quality and level of service.

Basketsgalore is going to do none of these things. Instead we are going to improve our efficiency of operations and improve our economies of scale. We are not cutting costs, because there is no room to cut costs. They are already as low as they can go.

We're investing in improving the service with major changes to our websites speed and organsation. And we are offering a wider and more comprehensive service.

In order to acchieve this we are re-designing our main assembly area and as with previous years the our annual improvements will be undertaken over the course of a summer time week-end so that there is absolutely no impact upon our operations and delay for our customers.

We hope you like our improvements online and let us know if there is anything you would like us to improve upon.

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.

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
