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

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 part

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
