The Big Christmas Dispatch Is Upon Us


We're currently in the middle of one of our busiest weeks this December and everyone is working really hard to fulfill our lovely customers' orders.  The warehouse is running like a well oiled machine, each process perfectly timed and planned out in a regimental fashion.  It's crucial that each member of staff know their role within the production chain in order to process and dispatch the volumes of orders we receive each Christmas, so a big thank you to our dedicated warehouse and office staff, we wouldn't get through Christmas unscathed without them!


Each step in the process is crucial

By the end of this week we should really start to see the difference in the warehouse as it becomes less and less full.  For now here it is running at optimum performance, with all hand's on deck.



As you can see there are so many intricacies involved as part of our gifts and each part is completed in-house, from hand-packing our baskets and cold packs to assembling our protective delivery packaging, absolutely nothing is outsourced.


Pre-packed Battle of the Biscuits

The Gift Basket featured in the video above is Battle of the Biscuits and the Hamper is Christmas Traditional Grand. If any of the Gift Baskets or Hampers featured in the video caught your eye for someone special this Christmas, check them out below:

A perennial best selling baked biscuits gift basket, full of tea time favourites & warmly received by all ages.

For those sending to send an Impressive Christmas Hamper. Dominated by Traditional Festive Foods and Wonderful World Tastes. The Grand is your launchpad for bigger and better.

With the warehouse gradually emptying this week its more important than ever that you place your order now while stocks last!  We have lots of Christmas and Occasion baskets that are sure to make the perfect gift for your recipient.

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…

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!
