Here at Baskets Galore, we’ve been working hard to create a new range of Welcome Gifts. Whether it be for an upcoming event, a long-term business partner, a new start at the company or an employee who has been working from home, a welcome Pack can make a huge difference. Not only are they a great way of encouraging participation at an event, but they can also help to show clients, customers and employees that they are appreciated. Our other blog Corporate Gifting and Why it Matters discusses the importance of sending welcome gifts. Now we want to discuss what kind of thing you should include in your welcome packs, and why our new Welcome range is exactly what you are looking for.


1) Support Local 

It’s more important than ever before that we support local businesses. Your employees will appreciate you shopping at a small independent business over a big brand- it’s more authentic and shows more thought has gone into the gift. It also sends a positive message to the recipient. Our Welcome Packs are full of products made by small artisan producers. Kilbeggan Cookies, made in Westmeath, are an office favourite here at Baskets Galore.


2) Don't Just Focus on the Client

Gifting them with something they can share in the office, or at home with the family, shows an extra level of thought has gone into the gift and will enhance your company image, not just in the eyes of the recipient, but those around them. Our Welcome Packs are full of snacks, both savoury and sweet, that are suitable for sharing.

3) Include Something They Can Keep 

It might be tempting to gift them with something they can use straight away, but it’s also a good idea to give them something that they can hold on to. This will leave a lasting impression, and will keep your company in their mind whether they are an existing employee or a potential client. Our Welcome Packs include an East of India Frame printed with the message “Dream the impossible, seek the unknown, embrace all that you discover.” This frame would be a great addition to a desk or workspace.

4)Include Something Practical

You don’t want to give them something that is going to sit around the house or the office untouched. Our Welcome Packs include a wide variety of teas and coffees. Nespresso carried out a survey which found that 67% of employees feel they are more productive after a cup of coffee, while over a third said they have solved a complex issue over a coffee break with a colleague. I really enjoyed this statistic, and not just because it made me feel better about all the coffee breaks I take. Nevertheless, providing your employees with high quality tea and coffee is a win-win for all parties. Some of our Welcome Packs also include a pocket-size notebook- perfect for taking notes during a business meeting, or when solving the world’s problems over that all important coffee break with your colleague.


5) Make it Personal

Most importantly, you want to show the recipient that you have put time, thought and effort in to this gift. Something as simple as a greetings card, with a personalised message inside can go a long way in doing this. All of our Welcome Packs come with a gift card and a message of your choice, which ties the gift up nicely.

You can see all of our welcome packs here. They range from €52 to €220 so there really is something for everyone, no matter the recipient. Delivery normally takes 24-48 hours, or you can pre-book if you have a specific event in mind. If you have any questions, or specific requests, you can email and a member of our corporate team will be there to help.
