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 & Kate would organise for these to be sent and packed in with the baskets. They also process the orders & check the addresses for each order and are then passed on to the courier team.

The Courier Team 
  • Chris processes all orders to be delivered by DHL, prints the labels & orders and sends them to the warehouse.
  • Scott processes all orders to be delivered by Nightline, prints the labels & orders and sends them to the warehouse.
  • Rihanna processes all orders to be delivered by ParcelForce, prints the labels & orders and sends them to the warehouse.
  • Lauren processes all orders to be delivered y DPD, prints the labels & orders and sends them to the warehouse.
The Customer Service Team 
Lynne, Gerry & Michael answers all calls from customers, they also track the deliveries to help customers know where their Christmas Gift Basket is.

The IT Team 
Luke, Simon & Laura maintain all systems and the website along with giving technical support for both the office & warehouse team.
Shannon & Andrea also manage the Social Media sites.

The Training Team 
Victoria & Roma also train new Christmas recruits to use all the courier software systems.
Now when you are ordering your Christmas Gift  basket you will know both the processes it goes through and who will be dealing with it.

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.

BasketsGalore's Big Move - Revised Delivery Schedule

July 12-16 th BasketsGalore's Big Move Hi Folks, Over the past few years BasketsGalore has been steadily growing (with a lot of hard work) and we have moved premises a couple of times to help improve operations & bring you the best service possible. We last moved our Headquarters in October 2007 & this July (12-16 th July 2012) we have decided to coincide our move with a public holiday to minimise disruption to our delivery service. We aren't moving far (just across town), but gift baskets, hampers, boxes and all the stock take up a lot of room so it is going to take us a while to pack up here, move everything & unpack at the other end! This means that unfortunately there will be no deliveries available on Friday 13 th July & Monday 16 th July. There will also be no deliveries to Northern Ireland on 12 th July due to the Public Holiday. We will email to advise anyone who orders to NI for this date, as unfortunately we can’t turn it off in the calendar when
