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 is 'like' us on Facebook & then post a comment on our wall telling us why your mum deserves to win. Also include a link to the gift basket you would like to win for her. Easy!
A winner will be announced early next week.

Mother's Day deliveries will be taking place on Thursday 31st March and Friday 1st April (April Fools!), as couriers do not deliver at weekends in Ireland. There might be an option to arrange a Saturday delivery in Northern Ireland. There would be a surcharge though, as it is not a standard courier service. If you would like to check the possibility & get a quote for delivery, please give us a call or drop us an email.

So celebrate mums everywhere and send her that perfect Mother's Day pressie to make her day!

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…
