Christmas is a'coming!

Ho ho ho, it is definitely that time of year when our annual newsletter goes out! Yes only 36 days til Christmas now. We sent an email update last week to let all our lovely customers know our 2010 Christmas gift baskets are available to order now!

Just because you order now, doesn't mean your gift will be shipped now. You can pick the special Christmas delivery option & also a preferred delivery date using the calendar at checkout. We try to stick as closely as possible to your preferred date, but generally operate by delivery week in December.

Wk 1 is the week beginning 29th November
Wk 2 is the week beginning 6th December
Wk 3 is the week beginning 13th December
Wk 4 is the week beginning 20th December

So if you pick a preferred date of 9th December, we will aim to dispatch your hamper during Week 2 (6th-10th Dec). We hope you understand with SO many hampers being dispatched during a short period of time it can be difficult to deliver on exact dates at this time of year. Good news...Christmas falls on a Saturday this year, so it gives us almost a full working week for deliveries requested in week 4.

We generally don't recommend requesting delivery very close to Christmas (end of week 4), as the recipient may not be home to sign for the gift basket & need time to re-arrange delivery.

We will email you when your Christmas gift is dispatched so you know it is on it's way. Delivery then takes place within 1-2 days. Or 2-5 days for orders to Europe. You can let the recipient know to expect something then if you wish then, or track the delivery yourself & see when it is signed for.

We will of course continue to dispatch birthday gifts, get well gifts & baby gift baskets etc throughout December so simply pick the standard or express delivery options if ordering a non-Christmas gift. This way we will now you would prefer delivery ASAP rather than for Christmas.

Keep checking back here for news & updates and please just drop us an email or livechat if you have any questions.

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!

Chocolate Gift Delivery in Ireland

Chocolate Gifts in Ireland

Basketsgalore customers may be interested in a few new additions to our range of gift baskets within Ireland. Taking our inspiration from the recent volcanic eruption in Iceland, which caused the closure of much of Ireland's airspace for several days, we have created several chocolatey gifts.

This range of gifts all have the dark brown deep base basket, which contains chocolate brown paper to maintain the chocolate effect. The Gift leads with a really delicious Chocolate & Toffee Spread and a Chocolate Sauce. These products are new from a small producer in Ballyshiel, county Offaly and the smooth taste on the palate simply excites the taste buds. In keeping with the theme, freshly baked Rock Buns and all butter shortbread from county Antrim are included in case you want to cover them in chocolate. These biscuits are chunky and substantial, so you can really pile as much of the chocolate sauces as is possible onto them without fear of them breaking.
