Mother's Day Deliveries - Still Time!

Hi Folks,

Just a brief update regarding our Mother's Day deliveries. There is still time to order for delivery before Sunday!

Lots of lovely Mother's Day gift baskets are already on their way to mums across Ireland & the UK, after a very busy day of dispatches today.

However, there is still time to order & have a gift basket of yummy treats delivered on Friday (1st April). Just place your order tonight or before 3pm tomorrow (Thursday 31st March) and pick the 'next available day' delivery option. We will then dispatch your gift on an overnight recorded delivery service.

We may also be able to offer a Saturday delivery option for addresses in our hand delivery area & BT postcodes. If you would like to check if this is an option for your delivery address then please give us a call or drop us an email.

We will also be drawing the Mother's Day competition winner soon, so 'Good Luck' to all our Facebook Fans!

Mothering Sunday Gifts

Well can you believe it is almost the end of March already? Cos that means a very special occasion is coming up! This year Mothers Day in Ireland & the UK is actually in April (on Sunday 3rd April to be precise) as it falls on the 4th Sunday of Lent. Other countries around the world celebrate Mothers Day on various different dates. The 2nd Sunday in May is one of the most popular days for Mother's Day celebrations in many European countries, Canada, the US & Australia.

We have so many new gift baskets on offer and many are just perfect for mums, so why not check out our Mother's Day gift range, as well as all the other girly gift baskets. Whether your mum is a chocoholic or a cheese & biscuits girl, someone who likes to be pampered or a traditional flowers or fruit lover, we like to think we have a little something for everyone!



We have also launched a competition on Facebook for a lucky mum to win a gorgeous gift basket, chosen especially for her. All you have to do…

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Happy St Patrick's Day everyone! We hope all you lucky ducks with the day off enjoy yourselves. Great to see the sun shining!

As well as being a public holiday in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador & in Montserrat, St Patricks Day is also celebrated around the world. Countries with Irish immigrants and their descendants tend to celebrate the occasion too. This includes countries such as Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea & Japan.

There are many parades, parties & services around the world to celebrate Saint Patrick (c. AD 387–461), the most commonly recognised of the Patron Saints of Ireland. We love the idea of people dressed in green, eating, drinking and being merry! Apparently the original colour associated with Saint Patrick was blue! Over the years the colour green gradually grew in assocation and green ribbons and shamrocks were worn in celebration of St Patrick's Day as early as the 17th…

Gift Baskets For Kids

As well as new baby gift baskets we have always carried a range of gift baskets for children. Last month we had fun designing a whole new range of kids gifts. There are many more to choose from now, for many more ages ranges.

Gifts For Toddlers (1-3 years)

Toddlers gift baskets are those in the 1-3 years age range. Kids obviously want a present to be fun, but we also include educational, sensory items for them to enjoy. Toddlers gifts tend to include a soft toy such as a teddy bear, chunky 2-3 piece jigsaws, colouring sets, colouring books, colourful flashcards or build & play toys. Chocolate buttons or milky bars add a little sweet treat and a choice of helium character balloons complete the gift.



The products included are all leading brands like Peppa Pig, Meccano Kids, Winnie The Pooh & Buttons produced by companies such as Ravensburger, Orchard Toys, Russ Berrie & Cadburys.
