We're prepared for the big dispatch - 50% of you have ordered.


Our warehouse is full to the brim, we're not kidding when we say our baskets are piled sky high, but not for long...from next week onwards it will look considerably less full. This is because Monday marks the beginning of our big dispatch, many customers preferred delivery dates fall between this week coming and next week. This means the majority of our Baskets & Hampers will begin their epic journeys across lands and seas, ensuring each gift arrives in good time for Christmas.


A sense of scale - Jake our 6ft 2" warehouse operative beside a mountain of pre-packed gifts.

Every warehouse operative has an assigned set of tasks to make sure the process of packing, boxing and dispatching the massive amount of baskets runs smoothly, it's critical that each member of staff know's the flow when dealing with such large volumes of stock.

Here's a peek at such processes captured in the height of operations.



Just in case they caught your eye as an ideal Christmas Gift - the Gift Baskets featured being packed in the above video are Christmas Saturn and Gourmet Wine Celebration and the Hamper featured is Chocolate Extravaganza.

A modern take on the classic "Tea and Coffee" Basket from our new collection of out-of-this-world Xmas Baskets. Freshly baked Xmas sweet treats mixed with impressively chic chocolates and confectionery.

A delicious savoury Gift Basket that incorporates big bold flavours. Creamy cheeses, French pate, Swiss chocolates and spiced nuts infuse together to produce a Gift Basket that's high in taste and presentational impact.

If you are serious about chocolate then the Chocolate Extravaganza Hamper is the gift choice for you! Crammed to capacity with chocolate and sweet delights made by small artisan chocolate producers. The result is a huge variety of novelty chocolate boxes, bars and baked goodies they won't have come across before making this a chocolate hamper that stands out from the crowd.

Time running out, Christmas is nearly upon us and 50% of our customers have already ordered, so please place your order now!

Free Chocolate Upgrade

As you well know, Lily O’Brien's chocolates are known throughout the world and yet made right on our doorstep in County Kildare. A key feature within many of our hampers throughout the year but especially at Christmas we were pretty annoyed when they got in contact to say they had run out of packaging for our beloved Triple Chocolate Indulgence. So, we went back to the drawing the board. Trying to find something as delicious and around a similar price point but nothing would cut it. Lily O’Brien's got in contact with us and offered us an even better box of chocolates with a very minor price change - we JUMPED at the opportunity. The price of an 108g box containing only 7 chocolates to a 300g box with an assortment of 30 chocolates with just a small price change on our behalf, you would be mad not to take that!
With our customers always at the forefront of our mind we thought we needed to tell you about this amazing deal we got our hands on and how it affects you. IT DOES NOT A…

Another Lily O'Brien Chocolate Upgrade

I’ll give you a quick recap…
As you know, Lily O’Brien's ran out of packaging for the Triple Chocolate Indulgence - which we love! They very kindly gave us an upgrade but as I explained before, not all of our baskets are big enough to fit the massive new box of chocolates and therefore not everyone would receive the upgrade. Feeling a tad exasperated we went back to Lily O’Brien's, surely they could help us out one more time. Needless to say, not one to disappoint they came through. Upgrading us once again! By explaining the dimensions of our basket and the type of product we had in mind, Lily O’Brien's suggested The Ultimate Collection. Ultimate by name and opulent by nature. An array of 16 finely crafted Irish chocolates with a recommend retail price of €10 meaning it works out at 62c per chocolate. A variety of 8 mouth watering flavours complete the Ultimate Chocolate Collection: Le Crunch Chocolat - Buttery crumbs of sumptuous caramelized French biscuit delicately mixed t…

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!
