Baskets Galore Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 26.10.17

It was my sister’s wedding anniversary last week. Do sisters usually send happy anniversary presents? Hope not? Because I didn’t get her any! I did however volunteer to help babysit her 5 month old, and successfully for drooled on excessively (she’s teething and going through bibs faster than you can wash and dry them). You might not get an anniversary present for your sibling, but you might get ones for…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket of the Day 04.10.17

I was rather dreadfully sick in the latter half of last week, and whilst I was lying there in my bed, surrounded by a miniature mountain range of used tissues and sounding like a dying zombie, I was thinking of three things: Poor Roma have to do 4 blog days in a row because Andrea is away on holiday in the sunshine, and I’m away in awful-land because of some…

Christmas Hampers 2017 Coming Soon…

September 13, 2017

It’s hard to believe we’re almost half way through September already! Just out of interest I looked up how long it is until Christmas and it’s just over 100 days! We LOVE Christmas at BasketsGalore, as it’s our busiest time of year and there’s such a buzz about the place. Over the past few months we’ve been busy planning, sourcing, creating, pricing and photographing our Christmas Hampers for 2017. We’re…


Baskets Galore Customer Gifts – Gift Baskets of the Day 07.09.17

Okay, so I was totally prep to doing 3 dispatch blogs today. I even went out and took pictures of three different baskets/hampers. But it turns out, nope, my workload is chock-a-block full and I’m pressed for time. I have two months of sales and VAT (July and August) for two different currencies to work out, the new GTA pricing to sort out with Neil (who’s away for his dentist…

I felt like a long while since I had featured the Cheesy Sunshine basket as the hamper of the day, so here it is: This super bestselling cheesy goodness in a hamper is for Michael in UK who is celebrating his 50th birthday. The sender, Anne, joked that she almost chose a a senior citizen birthday hamper for him but then saw this neat cheesy gift and went for it…

Okay, so we all know how much I love mango, right? Wait? You didn’t know? Gasp! I even have made a tag on this blog so that every time I mention the word mango, it will be tagged. I even wrote a blog all about it way back when! ….even though I am very mildly allergic to mango… but hey, I am allergic to a lot of things; in fact,…

It just seems like some weird luck that one day my sister is begging me to bring home a chocolate cake to satisfy her chocolate craving, I went out and bought said cake, then of course two chocolate cakes would then land on my lap the very next day, for free. Granted, the free cakes were given to me because they were too close to their sell by date to…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Basket Dispatches 29.06.17

I saw Andrea had been doing one blog for the daily dispatches recently and was wondering maybe if I should experiment with it and see how it goes. Well, I say ‘experiment’ but really, I am just too hungry for lunch to have the energy to think up 3 different blog posts into paragraphs. Plus, this way means that you readers don’t have to sit and read (or scroll) through…

There was supposedly a ‘heatwave’ yesterday? How had everybody been dealing with that? Can’t say it was anything special where our head office is based; all we got was a muggy dull cloudy weather that’s just enough to run around in a T-shirt. Honestly, last week was warmer, I felt. But on the other hand, my cousin in London claims she is being barbequed under the sun because it’s that…

Typical, before lunch, I had something witty to open this blog post with, but then my stomach was growling and demanding food, so I went on lunch, then came back and completely forgot what I wanted to write. So, typical, yes? I remembered it was something about dads and cheese. So whilst I cannot remember what I meant to write, we’ll just swing with that topic. I find that most…

How had everybody’s bank holiday weekend been? Mine was filled with attempts to visit a new seasonal pop-up market in the city, and constantly failing during to scheduling, weather, rain, rain and scheduling. In the end we just had a barbeque in the back garden, before regretting it because that particular evening wasn’t exactly the warmest. But, back to work, I am pleased to see that a company order I’d…

Baskets Galore’s Customer Gifts – Gift Hampers 11.05.17

Last Christmas, we had started swapping a few of our baskets and hampers into box only containers. This is because we had been receiving a number of queries regarding whether we could send our gifts without the basket. Usually we wouldn’t, but with some experimenting it’s now available for selected hampers. The Gourmet Pathway is a great example of this. In the past, it was in a shallow wicker tray…
