Winter To Spring Gift Giving Occasions

Good afternoon bloggers, we hope you are all well. It's been a while since our last post but we hope you've been keeping up to date via Facebook & Twitter.

Spring is always a busy time for us here at BasketsGalore, as there are quite a few upcoming occasions. After the extremely busy Christmas & New Year period, we have a little bit more time to breathe & so begin the process of creating lovely, new gift baskets!

This tends to begin with Valentine's Day on 14th February. We find our romantic gift baskets are particularly popular as presents for men, perhaps as they say the way to a mans heart is via his stomach! BasketsGalore's Valentine's Day 2014 range included complimentary romantic gift wrap, a personalised gift card & silk red rose.


After Valentine's Day we have a bit of a gap until St Patrick's Day on 17th March. We don't have to create lots of special St Patrick's Day themed baskets as the majority of our food is sourced from around Ireland anyway. We can instead just pick a few bestsellers to include in the range. These tend to include teams ones perfect for sharing as they tend to be sent to companies or groups.

Following St Patrick's Day comes Mother's Day, which is a really busy time for us. We are currently designing & photographing the 2014 range, but with over 12 years experience we tend to know what the mums out there appreciate by now. Flowering plants, hand creams, chocolates and cakes go down a storm and then we theme the baskets with mum mugs, gift cards and balloons to add to the overall Mother's Day package. Mothering Sunday falls on 30th March this year, but as the couriers don't deliver at weekends we suggest delivery on the Friday before (28th March). You've got plenty of time to place your order, as we deliver on a next day basis throughout Ireland.


After Mother's Day there isn't too long until Easter. Easter is another busy occasion for us as gift baskets make perfect Easter presents. We specialise in Easter Gift Baskets for children, but also include a few for older recipients like students studying abroad or for families to share together. Baked goods, Easter Eggs, Candy and Easter bunnies typically go into this range. They are again themed with cards, balloons and gift wrap.


So as you can see being a gift hamper and basket company keeps us busy all year round, not just at Christmas, so don't forget to look us up on these other gift giving occasions - we're always happy to help!

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

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
