Buy Your Christmas Gift Basket Now - We are 30% Reserved Already

 
 
Although it is only the beginning of December we are already 30% reserved! We are a small family run business who have grown from nothing and our belief in only filling the gift baskets and hampers in our range with the finest and freshest products has got us to where we are today. We believe this is the reason we are so popular and have customers returning year after year… they know no matter what the price point their hamper will be bursting with only the most fresh, luxurious products which have been crafted to the highest standard.

 
When it comes to Christmas we must prepare months in advance. The process begins during the summer - developing new products, tweaking old favourites to keep them up to date with current trends and from looking back at previous years sales we can forecast which gift baskets and hampers will be our best sellers in order to roughly estimate how many hampers will need pre-packed in the run up to Christmas.
 
 
 

Throughout the year all of our gift baskets are made to order but at Christmas this is not always possible. During the festive season, as the number of orders increase we must prepare in order to meet demand, so we begin prepacking gift baskets in November. Once the Christmas orders start rolling in, we can narrow down this years most popular hampers - knowing when they will no longer be in stock and encourage our customer to order soon if the gift basket they are interested in falls within this category. In some instances we may be able to order more of the products which fill the hampers to come back in stock therefore the gift basket can be restocked, but this is not always viable. We would recommend ordering sooner rather than later… just to be on the safe side! Watch our video here!
 
 
 
All of our gift baskets are packed by hand. This not only takes a lot of time, but also a lot of effort by our dedicated team of packing staff. When prepacking the gift baskets the team create an assembly line, laying out every hamper and placing each individual item in one by one. By placing the products in the gift basket by hand we can pay close attention to the quality control of each individual gift basket, ensuring the baskets are presented perfectly. Not only are the baskets packed by hand but they are also wrapped and tied with ribbon by hand too! Have a little look at a timelapse below of our team packing some festive gift baskets.

 
Although a small family run business, we are mighty. As you can see this is a huge operation, a real team effort by everyone in the warehouse to ensure the hampers you love are perfectly assembled, wrapped and waiting to go. We have hundreds of gift baskets and hampers pre-packed and ready to go some as a corporate thank you for an office team and others to be nestled beautifully under the tree of a friend or a family member to wish them a very Merry Christmas.

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…

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.
