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 & Northen Ireland only.

Easter Holiday Delivery Schedule:

Addresses in Ireland/ N Ireland:
Orders placed on Wednesday Night & Thursday 21st (up til 3pm) - Delivery Friday 22nd
Orders placed Thursday (21st) Night & Friday (22nd) Morning - Delivery Wednesday 27th

Addresses in GB: (GB Couriers are closed Fri 22nd & Mon 25th, but re-open Tues 26th)
Orders placed on Wed Night, Thursday 21st or Friday 22nd (up til 3pm) - Delivery Tuesday 26th April
Orders placed between Friday Night & Tuesday 26th (up until 2pm) - Delivery Wednesday 27th

If this is all too confusing, drop us an email to check!

Happy Easter!

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…
