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.

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
