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

Christmas Hampers Ireland 2019

Christmas Shopping Begins This is our 16th year of packing Christmas Hampers, the 8th Christmas in our current facility. Our hampers are distinctive because we work ever so hard throughout the year to investigate new concepts and introduce new combinations. It is our mission to extract value through efficiencies of scale and operation, so that our customers are delighted with their Gift Hampers and Baskets. This invariably attracts the attention of those who understand the difficulty of packing and producing hampers and ask us to apply our gift packing skills. October and early November are extremely busy months for us as we contract pack other organisation’s Christmas hampers so they can appear in their shops. But from this moment on, we get to test the desirability of our gift creations which we developed in March. Christmas Hamper Offers For 2019 we have more than 200 Christmas Hampers available for purchase as a gift, but truth be told, ther

Fresh is best when it comes to Gift Baskets

It's as busy as ever today in the warehouse, the orders are flowing in thick and fast, but you'll only really see the difference in our full up warehouse next week when lots of our Gift Baskets and Hampers are out for delivery. Pre-packing must continue on if we want to stay ahead of schedule, our warehouse staff painstakingly pack each Basket by hand and decorate them with festive Christmas ribbon to give them that WOW factor we're renowned for! The freshness of our gifts is something we take very seriously , whether the content includes fresh deli meats, fresh salmon and ham or freshly baked treats such as biscuits, cakes and mince pies, we like to make sure that you the customer get as long as shelf life as possible for each individual product, thats why we leave pre-packing until December so that's it's as close as possible to popular Christmas dispatch dates.

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
