About Us

Our Story

Hello and a very warm welcome to our website. We're a family run business based in the United Kingdom. Baskets Galore was established in 2002 on the basis that when we lived abroad for a few years, we had trouble finding suitable gifts online that we could send back to our lovely Mum at home in the UK.

So after returning from our travels we decided to create our own unique Gift delivery service, and decided to base it on something that we'd seen was incredibly popular in the States, and would be brand new to the UK market - Gift Baskets! And so we set about creating our UK Gift Basket Service. Our Baskets - or Hampers as they're commonly know in Britain and Ireland - would be uniquely and brilliantly packaged, so that they created a real wow factor on arrival. Their contents would be inspiring and thoughtful, and would truly reflected the sentiments of the person sending them. And we'd fill them with great tasting food and drink from micro, indigenous artisan producers, and big name brand quality toys and gifts that would be recognised and appreciated.

12 years on & our company has grown from our Mum’s garage, to 3 warehouse complexes in England, Ireland & Northern Ireland, & several websites. We’re proud to say that people and companies from all over the globe trust us to send gifts to their family, friends & colleagues living in the UK and Europe. We treat every order as if it was being delivered to one of our own family members. Our policy has always been to over deliver on quality and service, and thankfully this approach has enabled us to build up a loyal following of happy & satisfied customers.

Added to this is our promise to “Exceed Your Expectations." We're so confident in the quality of our product, if the end receiver doesn’t like their gift, we'll give the purchaser their money back upon return. We’re delighted to say this has yet to happen! We look forward to being of service to you, Neil, Lynne, Andrea and Mother.

Our Mission

Our Gift Baskets are exceptionally versatile, a little bit different & they create a very high presentational impact. Each basket is professionally wrapped & carefully decorated in hand tied ribbon in appropriate colours. Gift Baskets are an excellent gift choice for every occasion, whether it be a gift to say Happy Birthday, Get Well Soon, Congratulations, Thank You or to celebrate the birth of a New Baby. And of course Christmas time is our busiest time of year as we are also assembling, packing and despatching thousands of luxury Christmas Food Hampers to destinations across the UK and Europe.
