BasketsGalore's Big Move - Revised Delivery Schedule

July 12-16th BasketsGalore's Big Move

Hi Folks,

Over the past few years BasketsGalore has been steadily growing (with a lot of hard work) and we have moved premises a couple of times to help improve operations & bring you the best service possible.

We last moved our Headquarters in October 2007 & this July (12-16th July 2012) we have decided to coincide our move with a public holiday to minimise disruption to our delivery service. We aren't moving far (just across town), but gift baskets, hampers, boxes and all the stock take up a lot of room so it is going to take us a while to pack up here, move everything & unpack at the other end!

This means that unfortunately there will be no deliveries available on Friday 13th July & Monday 16th July. There will also be no deliveries to Northern Ireland on 12th July due to the Public Holiday. We will email to advise anyone who orders to NI for this date, as unfortunately we can’t turn it off in the calendar when deliveries to other regions are still OK on that date.

Please see the delivery schedule below:

Thursday 12th July – No Deliveries to Northern Ireland, BG office closed
Friday 13th July – No Deliveries, BG office closed
Saturday 14th July – No Deliveries
Monday 16th July – No Deliveries, but dispatches resume & BG office open
Tuesday 17th July – Normal Service resumes

As a Thank You

To thank you for your understanding, a complimentary chunky chocolate fudge will be included with all orders placed during this period & we will also upgrade all deliveries to the express service for dispatch on Monday 16th July (delivery Tuesday 17th)

We would like to thank you for your continued custom and please just drop us an email if you have any queries, as we can often still reply with email support.

See you on the other side!

Kind regards,

The BGie Team

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 part

Ciséain Go Leor Customer Announcement - Covid 19

Update Friday 23rd October 2020 All orders are still being processed, shipped and delivered. As throughout lockdown, we continue to operate a weekly delivery schedule. This means you will only see Friday dates available in the calendar at checkout. Although only Friday shows, we are still busy dispatching Monday-Thursday and so your order may arrive a few days before this. The Friday date is the LATEST date your gift will arrive, not the exact date. Unfortunately specific delivery dates cannot be met at this time. To recap the delivery dates going forward into November will be: Friday 30th October Friday 6th November Friday 13th November Friday 20th November Friday 27th November As a rough guideline, orders received from Friday to Monday morning will ship on Monday/Tuesday. Orders received on Monday/Tuesday will ship on Wednesdays and orders received on Wednesday/Thursday AM will ship on Thursday. We are noticing an increase in demand for our service, as lockdown measures bec

Flowers For Mum Gifts

Our most popular Gift Basket For Mum of all time has to be 'Mother's Day Flowers & Treats'. This is actually kind of amusing as it is somewhat against our original aim to be the "alternative to flowers". Instead of ignoring flowers completely, as let's face it they are still an extremely popular choice of gift, we decided to embrace them in a different manner. Rather than trying to compete with local florists who will always be able to present a more attractive bouquet than one having to travel through a delivery network, we came up with the idea of a flowering PLANT. This attractive floral plant could then accompany a smaller basket of treats to provide the end receiver the best of both worlds. Historically the 'Mother's Day Flowers & Treats' gift was pitched at a discounted, popular price point and it would be updated slightly each year for repeat Customers. The focus of the basket was on food and this was accompanied by a pretty fl
