Hampers Best Before 2010

Hello to all our customers in Ireland. Merry Christmas.

As you know our gift baskets and hampers are extremely distinctive.
Its the combination of freshly baked items, salmon and hams which sets a Basketsgalore Hamper apart from any other hamper in the European market.

So although it may sound terribly boring, we thought our customers would like to know shelf lives of some of the more perishable items.

For Hampers being dispatched today with salmon, chicken or duck, the Best Before Dates are as follows. Remember these are the earliest dates. New stock is arriving constantly which will extend these lives by several days.

Hampers with Organic Salmon 200g 31/12/2010
Hampers with Organic Salmon 500g 31/12/2010
Ummera Duck Breast 9/1/2010
Chicken Crown 3/1/2010

If your Hamper contains ham then the Best Before Date at earliest will be:

Montelieri Ham 120g 9/2/2010
Brady Family Traditional Glazed 28/2/2010
Brady Family 1/2kg Unboned Carving Ham 31/12/2010
Brady Family Traditional Sliced Ham 140g 28/12/2010
Pergola Fine Foods Salami 28/6/2010

If you are ordering a hamper or Gift Basket for delivery in the UK, Ireland or Europe and you would like to add cheese then the following BBE dates apply

Fivemiletown Selection Pack 500g 9/1/2010
Fivemiletown Individual Brie or soft Cheese 30/12/2010
Cashel Blue (Irish Stilton style Cheese) 4/1/2010
Causeway Cheese Cheddar Truckles 200g 14/1/2010
Bandon Vale Waxed Truckles 200g 2/2/2010

We've got quite a few freshly baked items which because they do not contain preservatives and are freshly baked can have quite short shelf lives. Certainly they will not have several months shelf life as you would have with a traditional fruit cake.

So if your hamper contains items such as:
Taras Chocolate Cake 400g, shelf life will be 30/12/2010
Ashers Chocolate Cakes 30/12/2010
Graces Fruit Cakes 14/1/2010
Dittys Mince Pies 30/12/2010

Throughout our christmas hamper range there are also some products which you might think have a long shelf life, but are actually quite short since they are handmade.
Skelligs chocolates for instance will have an April Best Before Date. However other chocolatiers, such as Butlers and Lindt will have at least 6 months and usually 9 months as they are bought in especially for Christmas.

There are hampers in our range, which do contain products with a long shelf life and you can email or telephone one of our sales assistants who will be able to assist you. However, the overriding theme is one of freshness and best taste, so to acquire this, the products ought to be eaten over the Christmas period.

We'll keep you up to date with delivery schedules and up to the minute news from us at Basketsgalore during December as we strive to get the best quality and value for money hampers and gift baskets delivered to your family and friends this Christmas. So whether they are in Ireland or further afield, you can be sure that the products within our hampers will be dated long enough to see them beyond Christmas Day.

Sincerely,
Neil

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
