Fruit Gift Baskets Galore


Think of summer time foods, and you may think of picnic lunches, cold drinks and fresh fruit. Unfortunately our summer seems to have been & gone already!!

While it was sunny we came over all fruity at BG and introduced a new range of fruit themed gift baskets.

Traditionally our fruit gifts have consisted of a mixture of fresh fruit, biscuits or cakes to make a sweet fruit basket or fresh fruit, cheese & crackers to make a savoury fruit basket. These have proved very popular over the years, as the recipients get a mixture of a healthy & tasty fruit gift.

Fruit & Chocolate Gift Basket - £45/€54


Fruit & Cheese Gift Basket - £45/€54

Mixed fruit gift baskets containing the small fruit collection generally consist of 2 types of apples, clementine oranges and red & green grapes. The medium fruit collection has the apples, clementines and grapes again but with the addition of navel oranges, plums, kiwis or pears. Our larger fruit collection consists of all of these and also pineapple, melon, mango and passion fruit.

We were increasingly being asked for "all fruit" gift baskets and so have introduced a number of these to the range too. These 'all fruit' or 'majority fruit' baskets consist of the large fruit collection with added extra's such as blueberries, coconuts and more exotic fruits, fruit juice or coconut water. We find certain fruits such as strawberries, banana's & peaches do not travel well, so tend not to include these in case the recipients should receive slightly bruised fruit.

Fruit Oasis Gift Basket - £39.99/€47.99


Extra Fruity Gift Basket - £39.99/€47.99


You can also create your own fruit basket if you wish as we have listed various fruit collections on an individual basis. We just ask that you don't pick a Monday as a delivery day for a fresh fruit basket. To meet a Monday delivery the basket needs to be dispatched on the previous Friday. We don't like to dispatch fresh fruit hampers on a Friday, just in case they don't arrive entirely fresh on the Monday. We prefer to dispatch them Monday-Thursday on an overnight service to minimise the transport time and so as the recipient receives a lovely, fresh fruit basket.

Thanks for reading about our new fruit basket range. As always if you have a special request or idea for a gift just drop us an email & we'll be happy to help! We once had a request for a basket of lemons, and only lemons! That would have left a sour taste in the recipients mouth!!
