Celebration Gifts For Her

If you are looking for an uplifting, celebratory gift for your Mum (or another important lady) then look no further as you have found the perfect range of gifts. Designed with a celebration in mind, the focal point of these Gift Baskets is the full size bottle of Prosecco for toasting the occasion.
In Italy, Prosecco is an extremely popular white wine. Outside Italy, it is most often drunk as an apĂ©ritif, much as Champagne is. As with other sparkling wines, Prosecco is served chilled.  Prosecco can be sparkling, semi-sparkling or still, with the Sparkling (Spumante) version being the most popular. Prosecco is made from Glera grapes (formerly known as Prosecco) whereas Champagne is made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Unlike Champagne, Prosecco does not ferment in the bottle, and it grows stale with time so is best drunk young! (Source: Wikipedia)


The overall aim for BasketsGalore's Gifts For Mothers & Women is that they must be exceptional, and therefore Sparkli…

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…

Fruity Wine Gifts For Mum

Mums are special, and so gifts for mum also need to be special. Every gift basket or hamper we create at BasketsGalore is designed with a specific person in mind. Each individual product is selected with great care and thought to create a gift that she really wants. We don't just take an existing hamper and add something to it to make it a bit more 'mummsy'. That would be the easy option, but it isn't giving mum what she wants or needs.

We use our 15 years of experience to come up with something unique, but not SO innovative that it veers on being a bit wacky or out there. We are always on the look out for products that are a little bit different and of course that are very much enjoyable.

With help from Lyme Bay Winery we are feeling a little bit fruity as far as our wine gifts for mum go. Lyme Bay are based in Devon’s beautiful Axe Valley.  They are a small, dedicated West Country company producing delicious and award-winning English Wines, Fruit Wines, Ciders, Mead…
