Customer Announcement - Delivery

Customer Announcement

You may be wondering why the next available delivery date is showing as Wednesday 14th July.

This is because BasketsGalore is expanding its office space and refurbishing the packaging & dispatch area, so unfortunately will be unable to process orders on Monday 12th July. We will be dispatching orders to Ireland & the UK again on Tuesday 13th July.

So if you order any time on Saturday, Sunday or Monday we will dispatch your gift on Tuesday or Wednesday on a 24 hour delivery basis. We made the decision to carry out any works over this weekend, as it also coincides with the 12th July Public holiday.

If you are happy for us to dispatch your Gift Basket on Tuesday 13th or Wednesday 14th July, we would like to thank you by offering the following treats:

1) An Upgrade to the Express Delivery service at no extra cost
2) 2 x Complimentary bars of Chocolate Garden Handmade Luxury Chocolate to be included in your gift basket

This applies to ALL GIFT BASKETS ordered over this period.

Additional Information

BasketsGalore have moved premises quite a few times in the past few years as we have continued to grow. On this occasion we are improving the warehouse logistics and increasing our office space for efficiency purposes. We greatly apologise to our customers for the inconvenience, but unfortunately it is a necessity.

As we strive to produce greater efficiencies within our operations, it has become apparent that additional space & enhanced operations are required to keep individual unit costs down. New procedures have been implemented, which will enable us to process more orders in a faster period of time.

The result will be lower prices and a better online shopping experience. We would like to thank you all for your understanding and co-operation as we continue to grow.

Yours faithfully,

BasketsGalore

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
