Father's Day Gifts Ireland

Fathers Day in Ireland is this Sunday 20th June 2010. So there aren’t many days left to organise a gift for the most important - Ireland based - man in your life!
Delivery companies don’t operate at weekends here in Ireland, so the last available delivery date is actually Friday 18th June. So if you want to send your Dad a Fathers Day gift in time for Sunday - please hurry.

We’ve been in the gift delivery business for a decade now, so we’re well aware how last minute gift buying can be (we’re guilty of it too!). We’ll be dispatching all orders received before 4pm on Thursday 17th June on the overnight express delivery service to all parts of Ireland. If your order comes in after 4pm, and Rob (the lovely Irish courier driver) hasn’t collected from us yet, we will do everything we can to get your gift sent out with him by bribing him with chocolate. After all he’s a Father too!

If we receive your order on Friday up until 5pm, and the delivery address is within driving distance, a member of our staff will even deliver your Father’s Day gift basket ourselves – we can deliver to postcodes BT1 to BT23.
But don’t worry if you miss the order deadline because Dad’s are pretty easy going and don’t seem to mind if their gift arrive a day late. After all beer and whiskey doesn’t go off!

Last year we sent out about 150 late orders for Father’s Day gift baskets. These Dad’s received their gift basket on the Monday instead of the Sunday – and none of them seemed to mind in the least. Or maybe they were just too busy chomping their way through the contents of their delicious gift basket!

Free Chocolate Upgrade

As you well know, Lily O’Brien's chocolates are known throughout the world and yet made right on our doorstep in County Kildare. A key feature within many of our hampers throughout the year but especially at Christmas we were pretty annoyed when they got in contact to say they had run out of packaging for our beloved Triple Chocolate Indulgence. So, we went back to the drawing the board. Trying to find something as delicious and around a similar price point but nothing would cut it. Lily O’Brien's got in contact with us and offered us an even better box of chocolates with a very minor price change - we JUMPED at the opportunity. The price of an 108g box containing only 7 chocolates to a 300g box with an assortment of 30 chocolates with just a small price change on our behalf, you would be mad not to take that!
With our customers always at the forefront of our mind we thought we needed to tell you about this amazing deal we got our hands on and how it affects you. IT DOES NOT A…

Another Lily O'Brien Chocolate Upgrade

I’ll give you a quick recap…
As you know, Lily O’Brien's ran out of packaging for the Triple Chocolate Indulgence - which we love! They very kindly gave us an upgrade but as I explained before, not all of our baskets are big enough to fit the massive new box of chocolates and therefore not everyone would receive the upgrade. Feeling a tad exasperated we went back to Lily O’Brien's, surely they could help us out one more time. Needless to say, not one to disappoint they came through. Upgrading us once again! By explaining the dimensions of our basket and the type of product we had in mind, Lily O’Brien's suggested The Ultimate Collection. Ultimate by name and opulent by nature. An array of 16 finely crafted Irish chocolates with a recommend retail price of €10 meaning it works out at 62c per chocolate. A variety of 8 mouth watering flavours complete the Ultimate Chocolate Collection: Le Crunch Chocolat - Buttery crumbs of sumptuous caramelized French biscuit delicately mixed t…

Ireland Gift Basket News Update

Basketsgalore's Irish blog primary role is to keep customers completely up to date with the status of the company’s capability to deliver its hampers and gift baskets in real time. At Christmas time this is particularly important when you want to have confidence that if you place an order a few days before Christmas that the hamper or gift will be dispatched in time.

However, such data, whilst essential is not exactly exciting to read so to keep people interested, Basketsgalore will sprinkle between these vital posts some random blog posts pertaining to the company, its history and some advice on creating your own gift basket company or hampers, along with a few posts, which we hope will make you smile. We were Ireland's original exclusive gift basket company, but we have been competing in the UK market for the past few years, which is why our Irish customers will likely only know us if they have received one of our gift baskets.

So in future al…
