Happy St Patrick's Day!

Happy St Patrick's Day everyone! We hope all you lucky ducks with the day off enjoy yourselves. Great to see the sun shining!

As well as being a public holiday in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador & in Montserrat, St Patricks Day is also celebrated around the world. Countries with Irish immigrants and their descendants tend to celebrate the occasion too. This includes countries such as Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea & Japan.

There are many parades, parties & services around the world to celebrate Saint Patrick (c. AD 387–461), the most commonly recognised of the Patron Saints of Ireland. We love the idea of people dressed in green, eating, drinking and being merry! Apparently the original colour associated with Saint Patrick was blue! Over the years the colour green gradually grew in assocation and green ribbons and shamrocks were worn in celebration of St Patrick's Day as early as the 17th century. (Wikipedia) It is also a day of sporting activities with important rubgy, football, gaelic football & hurling matches taking place.

At BasketsGalore we offer a wide range of St Patrick's Day gift baskets, as many of the items we stock are produced in Ireland by local artisan manufacturers.

We hope you enjoy celebrating the day. We are certainly looking forward to having a celebratory Guinness tonight! Sláinte!

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.

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
