May Bank Holiday - Delivery of Gifts

Well Folks I'm sure you're all looking forward to this long Bank Holiday weekend, which means the day off work for most!

We've been busy sending your gift baskets today, for delivery on Tuesday 7th May when the courier companies re-open. Any perishable baskets containing fruit & salmon etc unfortunately can't be dispatched on a Friday, as they sit in the delivery depot over the weekend & so may not arrive in peak condition. We also decided against dispatching any gifts containing soft cheese today, as there are no deliveries on Monday & so the cheese would be in transit for an extra day.



When dispatching chilled items, Monday-Thursday, we send them on an overnight delivery service & they're packaged in a chilled envelope/pocket with ice packs. These remain cold & fresh for up to 72 hours. It's also expected to be a warm weekend (fingers crossed) so this might have lessened the chilled packaging life span.

We've been in touch with any customers affected and arranged to replace any cheese products with upgraded items, or for the gift to be dispatched next week instead.

Any new orders placed from Friday evening onwards (post 3pm GMT) will be assembled & dispatched on Tuesday 7th May, when our offices re-open and the delivery company (Nightline) begin collections again. Unless of course you are ordering in advance, when you can select your preferred future delivery date in the calendar.

Wishing you all a relaxing & refreshing holiday weekend!

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!

Buy Your Christmas Gift Basket Now - We are 30% Reserved Already

Although it is only the beginning of December we are already 30% reserved! We are a small family run business who have grown from nothing and our belief in only filling the gift baskets and hampers in our range with the finest and freshest products has got us to where we are today. We believe this is the reason we are so popular and have customers returning year after year… they know no matter what the price point their hamper will be bursting with only the most fresh, luxurious products which have been crafted to the highest standard.

When it comes to Christmas we must prepare months in advance. The process begins during the summer - developing new products, tweaking old favourites to keep them up to date with current trends and from looking back at previous years sales we can forecast which gift baskets and hampers will be our best sellers in order to roughly estimate how many hampers will need pre-packed in the run up to Christmas.
Throughout the year all of our gift baskets are mad…

Celebration Gifts For Her

If you are looking for an uplifting, celebratory gift for your Mum (or another important lady) then look no further as you have found the perfect range of gifts. Designed with a celebration in mind, the focal point of these Gift Baskets is the full size bottle of Prosecco for toasting the occasion.
In Italy, Prosecco is an extremely popular white wine. Outside Italy, it is most often drunk as an apĂ©ritif, much as Champagne is. As with other sparkling wines, Prosecco is served chilled.  Prosecco can be sparkling, semi-sparkling or still, with the Sparkling (Spumante) version being the most popular. Prosecco is made from Glera grapes (formerly known as Prosecco) whereas Champagne is made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Unlike Champagne, Prosecco does not ferment in the bottle, and it grows stale with time so is best drunk young! (Source: Wikipedia)


The overall aim for BasketsGalore's Gifts For Mothers & Women is that they must be exceptional, and therefore Sparkli…
