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.

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 party started!

Chocolate Gift Delivery in Ireland

Chocolate Gifts in Ireland

Basketsgalore customers may be interested in a few new additions to our range of gift baskets within Ireland. Taking our inspiration from the recent volcanic eruption in Iceland, which caused the closure of much of Ireland's airspace for several days, we have created several chocolatey gifts.

This range of gifts all have the dark brown deep base basket, which contains chocolate brown paper to maintain the chocolate effect. The Gift leads with a really delicious Chocolate & Toffee Spread and a Chocolate Sauce. These products are new from a small producer in Ballyshiel, county Offaly and the smooth taste on the palate simply excites the taste buds. In keeping with the theme, freshly baked Rock Buns and all butter shortbread from county Antrim are included in case you want to cover them in chocolate. These biscuits are chunky and substantial, so you can really pile as much of the chocolate sauces as is possible onto them without fear of them breaking.

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 flower…
