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!

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
