Baskets Galore's Christmas Office Team

At Christmas the office becomes almost as busy as Santa's workshop with the office working hard to process orders and organise delivery for every Christmas Gift Basket. During the year we have 1 or 2 people max working on different processes but at Christmas each process needs a team of people.  
The different teams we need are as follows:
The Retail Team  Roma & Victoria process all retail orders, from both online orders & phone orders. They also deal directly with the customers, organising if any customers would like any extra products or substitutions added to the gift basket. Shannon checks the addresses for each of the retail customers orders, then they are pasted on to the courier team.
The Corporate Team  Andrea & Kate respectively take all corporate orders, from both online orders & phone orders. This means they also deal with any additional requirements for the baskets i.e. many companies like to send their own personalised compliments slips, Andrea & K…

Baskets Galore Helps With Shopping On A Budget

One of the main stresses at Christmas is trying to find the best presents for your friends and family when you are on a budget. Our Christmas Gift Hamper ranges have been created to ensure that the same quality and care goes into all our gift hampers, regardless of the price of the hampers. 
The only difference between our 3 tier budget gift hamper range is the number of products available and the types of products. Even our budget range has all the best quality products it has just been created as a gift for 1 to 2 people. The following showcases the different types of baskets available for the following budget ranges under €100€100+ &  €150+.

Baskets Galore's Christmas Stock Has Arrived

Baskets Galore are busy bees at Christmas time. We have to be so organised and make sure that the Christmas stock is ordered and delivered at the correct time, we also need to pre-pack non-perishable Christmas Gift Hampers to save time during the last few weeks of December, which is one of our busiest times of the year.
This year we have been so organised we placed an order for our Christmas Jams & Chutneys in the beginning of 2014. It is a year long process to receive our order because our supplier is a micro-producer who picks the fruit themselves in the summer and then spends the autumn months making it in small batches of 20. 
Our organic smoked salmon is so fresh that the earliest it can be delivered is the 17th December to ensure that it has an after Christmas shelf life. Our baked goods including mince pies and Christmas pudding are being made in small batches and delivered weekly to ensure that the stay fresh for our baskets. The baked goods have to come in early because …
