Holiday Gift Packages: A New Line For BasketsGalore?

May 19, 2017

I don’t know about you but preparing for a holiday can be a somewhat stressful experience, especially when taking young children/babies with you. I’m very excited to be going on a family holiday to somewhat sunnier climes, although the past few weeks haven’t been too shabby here at all. It’s my youngest sons first holiday abroad as he’s only 9 months, so we’re not quite sure what he will make of…


Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Baskets 09.03.17

Here we have an example of a gift basket for a boy, Snuggle Time Boy, and one for a girl, Glitz & Glam. The Snuggle Time Gift Basket comes in a range of ages so as we can select an age appropriate book, and in this case the…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Baskets 30.08.16

How was everybody’s bank holiday weekend? It was really sunny, wasn’t it? Like I said last week, I was going to my cousin’s little boy’s birthday party and it was a blast. I don’t even know who played in the bouncy castle more – the kids or the adults! Of course, as if to balance out the fun I had, Monday was spent doing chores and groan-moan-urgh painting the outside…

Chocolate Fountains & 4th Birthday’s Baskets Galore Style

When Andrea was planning her wedding, 6 years ago now, she really wanted a chocolate fountain so her guests could have a selection of fruit such as strawberries, melon and grapes together with marshmallows to smother with chocolate for their dessert. We even put down a deposit on one when at a wedding fair. However, the venue refused to allow such a thing and we had to cancel it. Fast forward…

Rowan’s 2nd Birthday – Gift Ideas By Post

This weekend sees my son Rowan turning a big 2. I actually can’t believe it, he’s all grown up. Well no not really, but he’s not really a baby anymore, instead he’s a little boy. I’m so proud of him as he’s such a happy boy and is very caring & polite. He’s also a confident little thing who talks & sings non-stop. Last year I planned a big party for…

Baskets Galore Customer Gifts – Gift Baskets 01.10.15

Oh dear my! I can’t believe it’s October already. It only seem like yesterday that it was the start of summer and now we’re heading into Halloween? Wow. Next thing you know, Christmas would be upon us – and it certainly doesn’t help that the local major supermarkets had started displaying Christmas chocolates already (we’re not even done with Halloween yet!) Though it’s technically mid-Autumn, the weather is holding out…

I’ve already covered one basket with a cuddly bear in it in the Fruit & Flowers dispatch blog today, but it must be the new trend to send cuddly toys or something because there were even more baskets with them on the worktop tables today. There was Hoagie, another Hoagie, a duck, two monkeys and another bear. Let’s cover the two monkeys first. Cutey Pie Baby Boy gift baskets! And…

Birthday Gifts Fit For A Prince (Or Princess)

July 22, 2015

Today marks Prince George’s 2nd birthday and what a little star he seems to be, already stealing the show at various important events. It got me thinking about my own son’s 2nd birthday in October, as he was born a couple of months after George. A few of us have children here at BasketsGalore and it really helps us to design our gift baskets for children when we have an…

Birthday Gift Baskets For Boys & Girls

April 15, 2015

Tomorrow is my niece Katherine’s 3rd birthday, Happy Birthday Kat! Lynne and the rest of the family are going to Disney On Ice to celebrate instead of having a party, and had been deliberating over a gift to get her. She has a big sister so between them they have lots of girly toys to share and the odd train set & lawn mower too. They settled on a balance bike and also…
