Fruit Gift Baskets Galore


Think of summer time foods, and you may think of picnic lunches, cold drinks and fresh fruit. Unfortunately our summer seems to have been & gone already!!

While it was sunny we came over all fruity at BG and introduced a new range of fruit themed gift baskets.

Traditionally our fruit gifts have consisted of a mixture of fresh fruit, biscuits or cakes to make a sweet fruit basket or fresh fruit, cheese & crackers to make a savoury fruit basket. These have proved very popular over the years, as the recipients get a mixture of a healthy & tasty fruit gift.

Fruit & Chocolate Gift Basket - £45/€54


Fruit & Cheese Gift Basket - £45/€54

Mixed fruit gift baskets containing the small fruit collection generally consist of 2 types of apples, clementine oranges and red & green grapes. The medium fruit collection has the apples, clementines and grapes again but with the addition of navel oranges, plums, kiwis or pears. Our larger fruit collection consists of all of these and also pineapple, melon, mango and passion fruit.

We were increasingly being asked for "all fruit" gift baskets and so have introduced a number of these to the range too. These 'all fruit' or 'majority fruit' baskets consist of the large fruit collection with added extra's such as blueberries, coconuts and more exotic fruits, fruit juice or coconut water. We find certain fruits such as strawberries, banana's & peaches do not travel well, so tend not to include these in case the recipients should receive slightly bruised fruit.

Fruit Oasis Gift Basket - £39.99/€47.99


Extra Fruity Gift Basket - £39.99/€47.99


You can also create your own fruit basket if you wish as we have listed various fruit collections on an individual basis. We just ask that you don't pick a Monday as a delivery day for a fresh fruit basket. To meet a Monday delivery the basket needs to be dispatched on the previous Friday. We don't like to dispatch fresh fruit hampers on a Friday, just in case they don't arrive entirely fresh on the Monday. We prefer to dispatch them Monday-Thursday on an overnight service to minimise the transport time and so as the recipient receives a lovely, fresh fruit basket.

Thanks for reading about our new fruit basket range. As always if you have a special request or idea for a gift just drop us an email & we'll be happy to help! We once had a request for a basket of lemons, and only lemons! That would have left a sour taste in the recipients mouth!!

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 party started!

Flowers For Mum Gifts

Our most popular Gift Basket For Mum of all time has to be 'Mother's Day Flowers & Treats'. This is actually kind of amusing as it is somewhat against our original aim to be the "alternative to flowers". Instead of ignoring flowers completely, as let's face it they are still an extremely popular choice of gift, we decided to embrace them in a different manner. Rather than trying to compete with local florists who will always be able to present a more attractive bouquet than one having to travel through a delivery network, we came up with the idea of a flowering PLANT. This attractive floral plant could then accompany a smaller basket of treats to provide the end receiver the best of both worlds.


Historically the 'Mother's Day Flowers & Treats' gift was pitched at a discounted, popular price point and it would be updated slightly each year for repeat Customers. The focus of the basket was on food and this was accompanied by a pretty flower…

Chocolate Gift Delivery in Ireland

Chocolate Gifts in Ireland

Basketsgalore customers may be interested in a few new additions to our range of gift baskets within Ireland. Taking our inspiration from the recent volcanic eruption in Iceland, which caused the closure of much of Ireland's airspace for several days, we have created several chocolatey gifts.

This range of gifts all have the dark brown deep base basket, which contains chocolate brown paper to maintain the chocolate effect. The Gift leads with a really delicious Chocolate & Toffee Spread and a Chocolate Sauce. These products are new from a small producer in Ballyshiel, county Offaly and the smooth taste on the palate simply excites the taste buds. In keeping with the theme, freshly baked Rock Buns and all butter shortbread from county Antrim are included in case you want to cover them in chocolate. These biscuits are chunky and substantial, so you can really pile as much of the chocolate sauces as is possible onto them without fear of them breaking.
