May Day Holiday

Can you believe the Easter Holidays are over already! We hope you all had fun in the sun barbequing and picnicking and spending time with friends & family.! Operations at BG have returned to normal, but only for a couple of days as there are some more holidays coming up..yey!

Next Monday, 2nd May, is the May Day Bank Holiday which means the courier companies will not be collecting or delivering on this day.

This Friday 29th April is also the Royal Wedding of Prince William & Kate Middleton in London. Because of this the day has been made a UK Bank Holiday & so our courier companies will not be collecting or delivering. We copy the courier holidays so BG will be closed too.

With these holidays in mind, any orders placed on Friday & over the long weekend will be dispatched on Tuesday 3rd May.

There are still normal deliveries tomorrow - Thursday 28th & Friday 29th in Ireland, so please get in touch if you would like a Friday delivery to an address in these areas. The we…

Easter Deliveries

Well all your Easter orders are now winging their way to their lucky recipients! Due to arrive in time for the Easter Holidays & to be enjoyed in the sunshine!

However, if you forgot to get your order in on time, there is still a chance if the delivery address is in Ireland! Couriers in Ireland still operate on Good Friday, but are closed on Easter Monday & Tuesday.

When you order you will see the calendar tells you Tuesday is your next available delivery day, which is true if the delivery address is in England, Wales or Scotland.

If your order is going to Ireland we can still dispatch these on Thursday for delivery on Friday 22nd (if order placed before 3pm on Thursday 21st) Just place the order & pick the "next available day" shipping option. We will know to send the gift ASAP if you have included an Easter message. Or feel free to reply to your order receipt email to confirm you would like a Friday delivery if possible! Remember this is for addresses in Ireland…

Easter Gift Basket Treats

Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day! It could well be time to dust the old barbeques off! A bit of warmer weather has arrived & people seem to be a lot happier when there is a bit of sunshine around! Spring has sprung which means Easter will soon be here too. Good Friday is the 22nd April this year, with Easter Sunday on the 24th & Easter Monday the 25th April.

Easter is one of our favourites times at BasketsGalore, as it goes hand-in-hand with baskets. They remind me of Easter picnics & Easter Egg hunts! Easter baskets are also a great gift idea. For Easter 2011 we have introduced lots of new Easter gift baskets, some for children (or big kids!) and some for the whole family to enjoy!

As well as Easter Eggs, chocolates, lollipops and sweets you might find the Easter bunny himself! The goody basket is decorated in pretty ribbons & is then ready to be unwrapped by the lucky recipient! In our Family Easter baskets you will also find all these things, but …
