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

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…
