Gifts baskets European Delivery

Happy Monday Bloggers,

I just wanted to write a quick update regarding our delivery rates to Europe, as I think it's pretty good news for those of you wishing to send gifts internationally.
As you may know BasketsGalore has always offered a European delivery service, and we have even delivered further afield to the likes of the US, Canada, Australia & Russia in the past. Currently we are concentrating on a great, cost effective delivery service to countries based in the EU, as then there are no worries about customs hold ups & charges.

Spring In Your Step? 4 Reasons to Celebrate!

Spring is a busy time for us in Basket land as we get a little run of occasions in a short time period. The romantic Valentine's Day, followed by St Patrick's Day, Mother's Day and shortly afterwards Easter! All of which are best celebrated with a gorgeous gift basket of course!

For 2012 we have created a new range of holiday gift baskets for you to enjoy. I have included a selection of them below, but please do see our website for lots more ideas.
And as ever if you don't see the perfect gift basket you can always create your own!
Delivery is available all over Ireland and the UK. We also have some great shipping rates to Europe too.

We hope your friends & family members enjoyed receiving & eating the contents! We know many of you shop with us every year & we really appreciate your continued custom. We have been steadily growing for the past 10 years and make improvements to the systems every year. One thing remains constant though, we only offer great quality gift baskets that we would love to receive ourselves!

We were so pleased the snow stayed away this December, although we know many of you have been hindered by it in the past couple of weeks instead. It meant we were able to keep dispatching Christmas hampers right up until the 22nd December, for delivery on 23rd December. Some of the couriers even worked the Saturday, Christmas Eve, to get those last few parcels delivered.

We even dispatched baskets on Friday 23rd December & these were delivere…
