Ireland Fathers Day Gifts

Father's Day Gifts Ireland

Last week would have been our Dad's 60th Birthday. It was always quite an awkward time of year as you had to think of 2 gift ideas for him within quite a short period of time. Also the difference between his Birthday and Father's Day was just long enough to make it impossible to double up.

Its always the complaint of people who's Birthday falls within a few days of Christmas time that they receive only one gift which is usually dubbed a part Birthday/part Christmas gift. However, doubling up can be a useful way of stretching the budget so that more expensive gift ideas can be considered.

Looking back Father's Day always seemed to be such an awkward gift occasion. Inevitably it would be promoted in the shops and you would attempt to obtain a personal gift pertaining to your father's interests. Like a lot of men his main loves were football, in his case Tottenham Hotspur, his car and his holidays.
In those days the shopping was rather limited in Northern Ireland as it was in the days before the Good Friday agreement and the world wide web was not the power that it is nowadays. Buying unusual gifts tailered for such a demanding man was decidedly difficult.


Invariably our gifts to him tended to be rather lacking in imagination. He was a man who didn't drink beyond the occasional glass of wine and had a very difficult to satiate sense of taste with regards food. Of course there was always Marks and Spencers Food Department, but the idea of creating a gourmet food hamper with such high quality food items and bundling them into a gift did not occur to us.

And so 15 years after his passing, we are all working as a family in our gift basket and hamper company in Ireland and GB. It is us who are responsible for creating an online shopping experience, which we think would be useful for people around the world and in Ireland when it comes to shopping for a gift for your Dad on Father's Day.

Basketsgalore does not sell all manner of gift ideas for Fathers Day. We create gourmet gift hampers, which we know our Dad would be delighted to receive. The quality of the contents and the attention to presentation and detail is something he helped instill in us, so it is only appropriate that we make sure that every Father's Day Hamper is immaculately wrapped and styled.

Nowadays it is possible to go online and select gourmet food for inclusion in your very own hamper and have it delivered within 24 hours. The quality of our food products is surpassed by no other company in Ireland and we are working hard on the online shopping experience. so please let us know how you think we're doing when your father receives his gift this year.



Happy Father's Day in 2010

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.

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
