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 wee calendar at the checkout will show Friday delivery isn't an option, but that is because of the Bank Holiday in the UK. If your order is for delivery in Ireland, then simply place your order & reply to your email confirmation requesting a Friday 29th delivery (possible for orders placed before 3pm on Thursday 28th to Irish addresses)

Many thanks,
The BG Team

Ciséain Go Leor Customer Announcement - Covid 19

Update Wednesday 2nd September 2020We have been comfortably keeping pace with the demand for our Gift Baskets throughout the Summer of 2020.  However, customers will be aware that we are still only offering a weekly delivery schedule.The reason for this has been our need to amend our facilities and train new staff in our operating processes for the Winter.The biggest change has been the creation of a second order processing area, which is necessary to create 2 separate staff shifts minimising risk of spreading the virus throughout the company.Therefore to complete the works quickly and to create work teams, which act as independent units, at the same time as launching an entirely new website (we like to keep busy), we will not be dispatching orders between Thursday 3rd September and Friday 11th September.All orders received from lunchtime on  2nd September will be dispatched between the Monday-Wednesday of the week commencing 14th September.We trust this does not cause too much of an …

Hen Night Gifts Ireland

A few of us in the office were away on my hen weekend recently & it inspired us to create a new range of hen night gifts.

We had noticed people ordering pamper hampers or wine & chocolate gift baskets for hen night presents before, but until now we haven't had gifts designed especially for hen do's.

Hen Night gifts are popular to send if you are unable to make the hen night, but still want to be a part of it & show you are thinking of them.

They are also good to have as an arrival treat in your hotel room, apartment or B&B. Some companies that book hen activities or weekends, like to offer a Hen Gift Basket as an arrival gift.

Our Hen Party Gift Baskets typically include some bubbly or wine cooler drinks, sweets, crisps, snacks, nuts & lots of chocolates to share! We have also included a few cheeky accessories for the blushing bride, such as 'Bride To Be' sashes & pink fluffy L Plates! So basically everything the hens need to get the party started!

Chocolate Gift Delivery in Ireland

Chocolate Gifts in Ireland

Basketsgalore customers may be interested in a few new additions to our range of gift baskets within Ireland. Taking our inspiration from the recent volcanic eruption in Iceland, which caused the closure of much of Ireland's airspace for several days, we have created several chocolatey gifts.

This range of gifts all have the dark brown deep base basket, which contains chocolate brown paper to maintain the chocolate effect. The Gift leads with a really delicious Chocolate & Toffee Spread and a Chocolate Sauce. These products are new from a small producer in Ballyshiel, county Offaly and the smooth taste on the palate simply excites the taste buds. In keeping with the theme, freshly baked Rock Buns and all butter shortbread from county Antrim are included in case you want to cover them in chocolate. These biscuits are chunky and substantial, so you can really pile as much of the chocolate sauces as is possible onto them without fear of them breaking.
