Christmas In Full Swing At Baskets Galore

Christmas is one of our busiest times of the year and to make it go smoothly we have a range of different processes that work together simultaneously. We have a number of different teams that work together on each process, if you took a look in our warehouse right now it is just like a big conveyor belt of people making, packing, wrapping and boxing baskets. Here is a breakdown of the processes, during Christmas these processes are working constantly until after the New Year.

1. We get a large delivery of baskets well in advance, these are then stacked in the warehouse and used when needed until November.


2. During November we assemble the baskets, these are ready full prepared to be used for pre-packing, they are stacked within the warehouse until they are required.





3. From the middle of November we start receiving a weekly large deliveries of non-perishable products, these products are then used for pre-packing.



4. The prepared baskets are then brought into the packing room, they are packed in bulk usually in quantities of 100.



5. Once the baskets are packed they are then wrapped and decorated, it is a different process depending on the type of basket. Some boxes are shrink wrapped and decorated with a ribbon and others are closed by a lid and decorated by a ribbon. Once these final touches have been completed then they are stacked ready to be boxed.



6. The final stage is then to box the pre-packed baskets, so they are ready to be delivered to customers.

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…
