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 party started!

Fruitful New Gift Baskets

At BasketsGalore Ireland we like to create fruit gifts with a difference. Fruit gift baskets are popular presents, as they can be sent on a variety of occasions & to almost everybody. We also add a few extras to our fruit gifts, to make them that little bit more special than a standalone fruit basket.

The most popular reason for sending a fruit basket is as a Get Well Soon gift, so we have created a special range of get-well fruit baskets & divided them into "for him" and "for her" sections.

By adding things like magazines, books, puzzles & games to our get well fruit baskets, we think the patient or person who is unwell at home will appreciate having their mind taken off feeling poorly, as well as having juicy fruit to snack on. We can deliver to hospitals all over Ireland via courier, on a next day basis. Just remember to include a ward name or number if possible please, to help the hospital staff to pass the gift on more quickly.

We also recently introd…

Deliveries to Ireland

At BasketsGalore we can deliver gift baskets to Ireland & Northern Ireland on a next day basis. We have trialled various Irish delivery couriers over the years and are very happy with our current supplier, Nightline Couriers.

Nightline offer an excellent next day delivery service & their customer service is really the best we have experienced. They have major depots in Belfast, Dublin, Waterford, Cork, Limerick, Galway & Sligo & have a vast network of drivers.

Some addresses in Ireland can be difficult to locate, as they don't have a postcode system (except for Dublin). With this in mind Nightline ask for a local contact number for the recipient to be supplied. This means that if they are having difficulty locating the address, they can telephone & ask for directions. Sometimes, if the address is particularly remote, the driver may telephone ahead to give the recipient advance notice. Although with so many deliveries to do, this is not standard practice. Drivers …
