Snow Hampering Gift Basket Deliveries Ireland

The clocks may be "springing" forward in just over a week to mark the start of Spring/Summer, but unfortunately it is anything but warm outside!

Most areas in Ireland and the UK are so badly affected by snow and flood waters that many roads are impassable & people are being advised not to travel unless absolutely necessary. Many homes have been left without electricity and schools around the country are closed.

BasketsGalore are still dispatching gifts today by courier, but some deliveries may be subject to delays due to the wet or snowy conditions. Some gifts dispatched on Thursday may also be affected.

You can track the delivery progress of your gift basket via your account. If the tracking information shows "on hold" rather than "out for delivery" it suggests that the local depot has been unable to each the delivery address that day & so will try again on the next available day.

We apologise for any delays experienced, but trust you understand that it is outside of our control. The courier companies we use are some of the biggest around & so will have contingency measures in place for such events.

Hopefully the bad weather conditions will clear over the weekend so as normal service can resume on Monday. We have lots of Easter gift baskets to dispatch next week, so remember to order yours ASAP.

Any queries please just get in touch with us on info@giftbaskets.ie

Thanks,

The BGie Team

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!

Ciséain Go Leor Customer Announcement - Covid 19

We have taken the extraordinary measure of suspending orders on our website from 11am on Saturday 28th March.  We are not closing and the facility will be manned by one of us, it is a temporary suspension of dispatches only.

We expect you have more important things to worry about, than reading an update from our little family run Gift Basket company, but we wanted to let you know, to explain why, and our plans to get back to work - serving you.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The reason for this suspension are 4 fold.

1. LABOUR

It's a time intensive business at the best of times.  And with just us 3 Siblings, and 2 staff members we simply cannot process your orders quickly enough in a safe manner. We have a standby group if anything happens to us, and we of course have staff furloughed to return when things outside are safer.  But, for now, we have to rotate warehouse and office space to kee…

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.
