Improvements to Basketsgalore in Ireland

Efficiency of Gift Basket Operations.

Basketsgalore will be investing once more in its infrastructure this summer in order to further drive down the cost of providing gift baskets and hampers throughout the all of Ireland. Even now it appears that it is better value for gift basket and hamper consumers to order their gift from us in Ireland and then pay the shipping to Western European countries rather than use a company based on the European Mainland.

In Ireland, Basketsgalore is determined to continue to extract efficiencies of operation, which we simply have to do in order to compete with large scale British companies in the intensely competitive UK market. So we are designing our own bespoke operational processing floor, which will enable the company to assemble your gift baskets quicker and even better.

The layout will resemble that of a large hotel kitchen with multiple stainless steel work services and catering bench fridges. We'll also be operating a just in time work process, which is particularly important at Christmas since speed of assembly translates into lower gift hamper costs for our customers.

We have noticed many businesses doing one of three things.
1) Reducing the sizes of their products, this years Easter Eggs being a prime example, which were 15% smaller than last year.
2) Raising Prices to cover increasing costs
3) Lowering quality and level of service.

Basketsgalore is going to do none of these things. Instead we are going to improve our efficiency of operations and improve our economies of scale. We are not cutting costs, because there is no room to cut costs. They are already as low as they can go.

We're investing in improving the service with major changes to our websites speed and organsation. And we are offering a wider and more comprehensive service.

In order to acchieve this we are re-designing our main assembly area and as with previous years the our annual improvements will be undertaken over the course of a summer time week-end so that there is absolutely no impact upon our operations and delay for our customers.

We hope you like our improvements online and let us know if there is anything you would like us to improve upon.

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!

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 mad…

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…
