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!!

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…
