Father's Day Gifts Ireland

Fathers Day in Ireland is this Sunday 20th June 2010. So there aren’t many days left to organise a gift for the most important - Ireland based - man in your life!
Delivery companies don’t operate at weekends here in Ireland, so the last available delivery date is actually Friday 18th June. So if you want to send your Dad a Fathers Day gift in time for Sunday - please hurry.

We’ve been in the gift delivery business for a decade now, so we’re well aware how last minute gift buying can be (we’re guilty of it too!). We’ll be dispatching all orders received before 4pm on Thursday 17th June on the overnight express delivery service to all parts of Ireland. If your order comes in after 4pm, and Rob (the lovely Irish courier driver) hasn’t collected from us yet, we will do everything we can to get your gift sent out with him by bribing him with chocolate. After all he’s a Father too!

If we receive your order on Friday up until 5pm, and the delivery address is within driving distance, a member of our staff will even deliver your Father’s Day gift basket ourselves – we can deliver to postcodes BT1 to BT23.
But don’t worry if you miss the order deadline because Dad’s are pretty easy going and don’t seem to mind if their gift arrive a day late. After all beer and whiskey doesn’t go off!

Last year we sent out about 150 late orders for Father’s Day gift baskets. These Dad’s received their gift basket on the Monday instead of the Sunday – and none of them seemed to mind in the least. Or maybe they were just too busy chomping their way through the contents of their delicious gift basket!

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!

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…

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.
