Buy Your Christmas Gift Basket Soon - We are 40% allocated

Buy Your Christmas Gift Basket Soon - We are 40% allocated

The warehouse is bustling, our team are scurrying about packing, wrapping and boxing carefully with precision, taking in everything and ensuring the gift basket your friends and family are going to receive is perfect in every way. 40% of our gift baskets are already allocated and the festive season has only really begun. You might be asking, Why is so much of their stock allocated already?
We work tirelessly year round creating new gift baskets, making little changes to well loved favourites, listening to your feedback and bettering ourselves from it. But just like any business, Christmas is our most busy time of the year which is why we need to be prepared.
We get in extra staff and work around the clock to meet the demand during the festive season. Our gift  baskets and hampers all contain only the finest and freshest ingredients but we must pre-pack in order to be prepared. Currently 40% of our pre-packed gift baskets are allocated to customers who have already got their order in.

At the moment we are packing multiples of hundreds of gift baskets per day. This number fluctuates depending on the type of hamper and also its size meaning that thousands are pre-packed for Christmas per week during the months of November and December. We pre-pack tens of thousands of  hampers during the festive season, only our Christmas gift baskets are pre-packed - our new baby, get well soon, birthday baskets and so on are all made to order. So this rough figure does not include all of our miscellaneous baskets we send out during the festive season.
We are currently packing our Great Taste Award Range. This range contains many award winning fine gourmet preserves, chutneys and treats. These can be packed at the minute as they often have a longer shelf life than fresh produce such as freshly baked mince pies or smoked salmon.
You can see from the photos and video the velocity of this operation.This is rolled out with precision, excellent timing and care. One that is run under the strict supervision of Pieter. Pieter is a master at his trade - he has been over seeing the production of our Christmas gift baskets and hampers for the past 10 years! Pieter and his team are very fast and efficient. Once the baskets are packed by the team, they are passed onto Eva. Eva is our head of quality control. A lady with a keen eye for detail, no imperfections slip through the cracks when Eva is around.
With forty percent of all of our Christmas and gift baskets already allocated to customers make sure you get your order in ASAP, we reached 33% allocation very quickly and the allocation number is only going to grow as we approach the big day.

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…
