Christmas In Full Swing At Baskets Galore

Christmas is one of our busiest times of the year and to make it go smoothly we have a range of different processes that work together simultaneously. We have a number of different teams that work together on each process, if you took a look in our warehouse right now it is just like a big conveyor belt of people making, packing, wrapping and boxing baskets. Here is a breakdown of the processes, during Christmas these processes are working constantly until after the New Year.

1. We get a large delivery of baskets well in advance, these are then stacked in the warehouse and used when needed until November.


2. During November we assemble the baskets, these are ready full prepared to be used for pre-packing, they are stacked within the warehouse until they are required.





3. From the middle of November we start receiving a weekly large deliveries of non-perishable products, these products are then used for pre-packing.



4. The prepared baskets are then brought into the packing room, they are packed in bulk usually in quantities of 100.



5. Once the baskets are packed they are then wrapped and decorated, it is a different process depending on the type of basket. Some boxes are shrink wrapped and decorated with a ribbon and others are closed by a lid and decorated by a ribbon. Once these final touches have been completed then they are stacked ready to be boxed.



6. The final stage is then to box the pre-packed baskets, so they are ready to be delivered to customers.

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

Fresh is best when it comes to Gift Baskets

It's as busy as ever today in the warehouse, the orders are flowing in thick and fast, but you'll only really see the difference in our full up warehouse next week when lots of our Gift Baskets and Hampers are out for delivery. Pre-packing must continue on if we want to stay ahead of schedule, our warehouse staff painstakingly pack each Basket by hand and decorate them with festive Christmas ribbon to give them that WOW factor we're renowned for! The freshness of our gifts is something we take very seriously , whether the content includes fresh deli meats, fresh salmon and ham or freshly baked treats such as biscuits, cakes and mince pies, we like to make sure that you the customer get as long as shelf life as possible for each individual product, thats why we leave pre-packing until December so that's it's as close as possible to popular Christmas dispatch dates.

BasketsGalore's Big Move - Revised Delivery Schedule

July 12-16 th BasketsGalore's Big Move Hi Folks, Over the past few years BasketsGalore has been steadily growing (with a lot of hard work) and we have moved premises a couple of times to help improve operations & bring you the best service possible. We last moved our Headquarters in October 2007 & this July (12-16 th July 2012) we have decided to coincide our move with a public holiday to minimise disruption to our delivery service. We aren't moving far (just across town), but gift baskets, hampers, boxes and all the stock take up a lot of room so it is going to take us a while to pack up here, move everything & unpack at the other end! This means that unfortunately there will be no deliveries available on Friday 13 th July & Monday 16 th July. There will also be no deliveries to Northern Ireland on 12 th July due to the Public Holiday. We will email to advise anyone who orders to NI for this date, as unfortunately we can’t turn it off in the calendar when
