Welcome Gift Baskets On The Rise

August 5, 2017

If we were to ask you about some occasions you might send a gift basket or hamper for, a ‘Welcome’ gift might not feature all that highly. However, we have noticed Welcome Gift Baskets being ordered more and more frequently and even added it under Hospitality to our Occasions category a couple of years ago. A Welcome Gift Basket is generally sent as a present for 3 main occasions/reasons: A Housewarming A New Job/Client/Partner…


Web Development Project For BasketsGalore

July 21, 2017

We love a good Summer website project here at Baskets Galore, as it’s the best time to plan, implement and monitor any changes before the really busy period of Christmas. We’re excited to announce that we’re teaming up with some Designers and a Web Development Agency this time, rather than keeping everything in-house, and so we look forward to an exciting new take on our websites based on these collaborations….


IT’s Time To Say Goodbye

It’s always sad when we have to say “Goodbye” to someone and this time it was to Jonny in our IT Department. Although technically this is his second farewell, as last summer he finished his placement year with us and so received his leaving card back then. Only for him to stay on in a support capacity for another year, and so this June saw his second and final farewell….

Teacher Gifts: Saying ‘Thank You’

He’s only 3.5 years old and attends Pre Pre School twice a week, so he counts time by the number of sleeps it will take. He then went into playgroup that day…

Summer Picnic Basket Ideas By BasketsGalore

This weekend we have had some lovely weather and it has turned our thoughts to outdoor eating which is actually quite a rarity here at Baskets Galore HQ. As you have seen from previous blogs, it was Andrea’s birthday on Saturday and we had a family BBQ in the garden- the first, but hopefully not the only one, of the year. For eating out further afield you would, of course,…

Businesswoman Vs Mum? You Can Be Both!

Lynne & I struggled somewhat last week with balancing work commitments (of running a small business) & being mums. Since getting back from holiday the previous week poor Theo has been poorly with an ear infection. After perking up for a few days he then seemed to get a bit hot and bothered again, and just wasn’t himself. Lynne’s daughter, Katherine, then also started spiking a very high temperature and developing…

Black Velvet If You Please | Cocktail Recipe Gift Baskets

Back in March we were contacted by a PR Company in Dublin who wished to send some customised hampers to clients in the UK/Europe for St.Patrick’s Day. They wished to send the ingredients for a “Black Velvet” cocktail in a hamper/gift basket to mark the occasion to clients in Germany and London. This wasn’t the first time we had been approached to create such a gift basket, and so we knew what…
