BasketsGalore - St Patrick's Day Delivery Update

Customer Announcement – No Deliveries Within Ireland on 17th March
Just a quick reminder that unfortunately there will be no deliveries within Ireland and Northern Ireland on Monday 17th March 2014, due to the St Patrick’s Day holiday.
St Patrick’s Day is a national holiday in Ireland so all businesses and schools tend to be closed, including the courier company we use for our deliveries.
This means if you would like a gift basket to be delivered in time for St Patrick's Day you will need to order by 3 pm on Thursday 13th March (at the latest), so it will arrive on Friday 14th March. There are no weekend deliveries available either. Any orders placed on Friday 13th will be scheduled for delivery on Tuesday 18th, providing they have non-perishable contents. Any baskets ordered containing perishable items (such as fruit & salmon) cannot be dispatched until Tuesday 18th, for Wednesday 19th arrival. We will endeavour to email any customers who place perishable orders during this time to explain this also.
Any orders placed over the weekend & on Monday 17th March, for delivery in Ireland or to BT postcodes, will be dispatched on Tuesday 18th March for next day arrival.
As always you can track the deliver progress of your gift basket via your BasketsGalore account at any time of the day. If you notice that the recipient was not at home when the delivery was attempted then the courier driver will have left them a calling card letting them know he/she has a delivery for them. It will contain local contact details so the recipient can ring & request it to be redelivered on a date of their choice, or the next available date. As part of the BasketsGalore service we monitor all deliveries too, as well as providing customers with tracking codes. This means we can step in to help in the event of any problems noticed by ourselves or you.
Thank you for your understanding & we’ll also post information on the Easter delivery schedule in the next few weeks.

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…
