Chocolate Gift Basket Treats

Calling all chocolate lovers!

Over the past couple of weeks we have been beating the winter blues by treating ourselves to some delicious chocolate goodies. Of course it is all in the name of research… as we only want to include the BEST chocolate treats in our new chocolate themed gift baskets!

Our ‘Christmas Chocolate Celebration’ basket was a big hit in December, so we thought we would update our all year round chocolate gift range & also offer you some new choices.

New products include a range called Sugar n’ Spice from Ashbourne Foods. They had lots of yummy items to choose from, but after some careful taste testing we have picked out Belgian Chocolate Shortbread Biscuit Bites, Intensely Chocolate Flapjack & the Seriously Fruity Flapjack.

Asher’s Baking Co. produce the delicious, freshly baked chocolate chip cake we include and the luxurious caramel shortbread biscuits. My mouth is watering typing this! Ballyshiel’s Exquisite Chocolate Sauce & Chocolate Spreads add even more sparkle to an already luxurious chocolate gift.

We didn’t forget good old-fashioned chocolates; there are plenty to choose from! I have named just a few below:

Lindt Lindor Chocolate Truffles
Lily O’Brien Caramels & Toffees
Butlers Chocolate Bars in mixed flavours
Melting Pot Fudge
House of Dorchester Chunky Chocolates
Skellig’s Handmade Chocolate Truffles
James’ Novelty Chocolates – piglets & bunnies etc
Forest Feast Chocolate Raisins

Of course all this chocolate is bound to make you thirsty so we have included something delicious to wash it all down with. Either organic fruity lemonade or freshly pressed apple & raspberry juice, or in some chocolate gift baskets - both!

A chocolate gift basket is suitable for so many occasions, be it a thank you gift, a birthday gift or congratulations gift. Of course there is one very special occasion coming up on the 14th February… St Valentine’s Day! Our chocolate Valentine’s Day gifts are the perfect way to show that special someone how much you love them. When they receive one of these Valentines Day gift baskets they will feel truly spoilt & you will definitely be in their good books! Of course, if chocolate is not their favourite thing, then our cheese, salmon or fruit baskets will also impress. Or should your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband, partner or friend be in need of a little pampering on Valentine’s Day then choose from our great range of pampering gift baskets for him or pampering gifts for her.

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…
