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.

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.
