Graduation and University Gifts in Ireland

Graduation Gifts delivered to Ireland

The average age of people working in Basketsgalore is 25/26 years of age. Even the inclusion of Mother only pushes the average up to 29, so we are all aware that June and July is not only Fathers Day on 20 June, it is Graduation Season. We can obviously remember our recent and some not so recent graduations.
Since we are all university graduates, we asked around the company to surreptitiously discover what they considered to be the worst gifts they have received. Then amalgamated their answers to identify the 10 most unpopular gifts that a graduating person would least like to receive.

Top 10 worst Gifts ever received by Staff Members.

1) Offer of a week’s holiday at somebody’s apartment in Benalmadena. (Still under construction and recently featured in Homes From Hell)
2) Watches and jewellery for men. The more expensive the worse it is. Of all the boys in Basketsgalore nobody is wearing any jewellery of any description. Are we indicative of Irish 20 something male society?
3) A couple of people said beer because they are either allergic to it or simply don’t like it. The general consensus is that none of us likes to receive beer or spirits. Kind of surprising considering the age demographic. The message seems to be that unless you know they really like it, don't assume it.
4) Clothes. It’s impossible to buy clothes for men.
5) Weekend breaks with relatives.
6) Technology gizmos, one girl received a gadget which was meant to enable TV through laptop, which has never worked. Young women in general are not appreciative of technological gifts.
7) Digital radios bought for people who live outside cities which will not work until 2012
8) Really cheap and nasty Beauty Packs
9) Rose scented beauty packs which sit in cupboards gathering dust until you need an emergency gift for somebody, you don’t really know very well. Then they will get the Rose Scented Beauty products.
10) Nasty food gifts. Examples being Cheap Turkish Delight, commercialised chocolates where the emphasis is on the country of origin, simply for the sake of it.

Quite clearly the moral of the story is that only a gift basket or hamper created by Basketsgalore can be guaranteed to delight a graduate this summer in Ireland. It really is the perfect way to send your congratulations message. Not one person mentioned a gift in a basket or hamper as being something they didn’t want to receive. And since Basketsgalore assembles the nicest gifts in a hamper or basket in Ireland, then it is completely logical to suggest that Basketsgalore is the safest and best choice to make when you want to send a Gift to a University or as a Graduation Gift within Ireland.

Christmas Hampers Ireland 2019

Christmas Shopping Begins This is our 16th year of packing Christmas Hampers, the 8th Christmas in our current facility. Our hampers are distinctive because we work ever so hard throughout the year to investigate new concepts and introduce new combinations. It is our mission to extract value through efficiencies of scale and operation, so that our customers are delighted with their Gift Hampers and Baskets. This invariably attracts the attention of those who understand the difficulty of packing and producing hampers and ask us to apply our gift packing skills. October and early November are extremely busy months for us as we contract pack other organisation’s Christmas hampers so they can appear in their shops. But from this moment on, we get to test the desirability of our gift creations which we developed in March. Christmas Hamper Offers For 2019 we have more than 200 Christmas Hampers available for purchase as a gift, but truth be told, ther

Fresh is best when it comes to Gift Baskets

It's as busy as ever today in the warehouse, the orders are flowing in thick and fast, but you'll only really see the difference in our full up warehouse next week when lots of our Gift Baskets and Hampers are out for delivery. Pre-packing must continue on if we want to stay ahead of schedule, our warehouse staff painstakingly pack each Basket by hand and decorate them with festive Christmas ribbon to give them that WOW factor we're renowned for! The freshness of our gifts is something we take very seriously , whether the content includes fresh deli meats, fresh salmon and ham or freshly baked treats such as biscuits, cakes and mince pies, we like to make sure that you the customer get as long as shelf life as possible for each individual product, thats why we leave pre-packing until December so that's it's as close as possible to popular Christmas dispatch dates. Ancient Cork Gift Basket The video above shows the process of pre-packing the Anc

BasketsGalore's Big Move - Revised Delivery Schedule

July 12-16 th BasketsGalore's Big Move Hi Folks, Over the past few years BasketsGalore has been steadily growing (with a lot of hard work) and we have moved premises a couple of times to help improve operations & bring you the best service possible. We last moved our Headquarters in October 2007 & this July (12-16 th July 2012) we have decided to coincide our move with a public holiday to minimise disruption to our delivery service. We aren't moving far (just across town), but gift baskets, hampers, boxes and all the stock take up a lot of room so it is going to take us a while to pack up here, move everything & unpack at the other end! This means that unfortunately there will be no deliveries available on Friday 13 th July & Monday 16 th July. There will also be no deliveries to Northern Ireland on 12 th July due to the Public Holiday. We will email to advise anyone who orders to NI for this date, as unfortunately we can’t turn it off in the calendar when
