The Big Christmas Dispatch Is Upon Us


We're currently in the middle of one of our busiest weeks this December and everyone is working really hard to fulfill our lovely customers' orders.  The warehouse is running like a well oiled machine, each process perfectly timed and planned out in a regimental fashion.  It's crucial that each member of staff know their role within the production chain in order to process and dispatch the volumes of orders we receive each Christmas, so a big thank you to our dedicated warehouse and office staff, we wouldn't get through Christmas unscathed without them!


Each step in the process is crucial

By the end of this week we should really start to see the difference in the warehouse as it becomes less and less full.  For now here it is running at optimum performance, with all hand's on deck.



As you can see there are so many intricacies involved as part of our gifts and each part is completed in-house, from hand-packing our baskets and cold packs to assembling our protective delivery packaging, absolutely nothing is outsourced.

The Gift Basket featured in the video above is Battle of the Biscuits and the Hamper is Christmas Traditional Grand. If any of the Gift Baskets or Hampers featured in the video caught your eye for someone special this Christmas, check them out below:

A perennial best selling baked biscuits gift basket, full of tea time favourites & warmly received by all ages.

For those sending to send an Impressive Christmas Hamper. Dominated by Traditional Festive Foods and Wonderful World Tastes. The Grand is your launchpad for bigger and better.

With the warehouse gradually emptying this week its more important than ever that you place your order now while stocks last!  We have lots of Christmas and Occasion baskets that are sure to make the perfect gift for your recipient.

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…

Ireland Gift Basket News Update

Basketsgalore's Irish blog primary role is to keep customers completely up to date with the status of the company’s capability to deliver its hampers and gift baskets in real time. At Christmas time this is particularly important when you want to have confidence that if you place an order a few days before Christmas that the hamper or gift will be dispatched in time.

However, such data, whilst essential is not exactly exciting to read so to keep people interested, Basketsgalore will sprinkle between these vital posts some random blog posts pertaining to the company, its history and some advice on creating your own gift basket company or hampers, along with a few posts, which we hope will make you smile. We were Ireland's original exclusive gift basket company, but we have been competing in the UK market for the past few years, which is why our Irish customers will likely only know us if they have received one of our gift baskets.

So in future al…
