May Bank Holiday - Delivery of Gifts

Well Folks I'm sure you're all looking forward to this long Bank Holiday weekend, which means the day off work for most!

We've been busy sending your gift baskets today, for delivery on Tuesday 7th May when the courier companies re-open. Any perishable baskets containing fruit & salmon etc unfortunately can't be dispatched on a Friday, as they sit in the delivery depot over the weekend & so may not arrive in peak condition. We also decided against dispatching any gifts containing soft cheese today, as there are no deliveries on Monday & so the cheese would be in transit for an extra day.



When dispatching chilled items, Monday-Thursday, we send them on an overnight delivery service & they're packaged in a chilled envelope/pocket with ice packs. These remain cold & fresh for up to 72 hours. It's also expected to be a warm weekend (fingers crossed) so this might have lessened the chilled packaging life span.

We've been in touch with any customers affected and arranged to replace any cheese products with upgraded items, or for the gift to be dispatched next week instead.

Any new orders placed from Friday evening onwards (post 3pm GMT) will be assembled & dispatched on Tuesday 7th May, when our offices re-open and the delivery company (Nightline) begin collections again. Unless of course you are ordering in advance, when you can select your preferred future delivery date in the calendar.

Wishing you all a relaxing & refreshing holiday weekend!

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

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.

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
