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.

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…
