Christmas is of course the mainstay of our business, as demand for Xmas Hampers is extremely high. Without the busy Christmas season Irish Gourmet wouldn't be able to operate our all-year-round food gift service for customers wishing to send quality and fresh food from Ireland to friends, family and colleagues in the UK and EU. Our luxury Christmas Hampers are conceptualised at the very beginning of the year as we look back on what food items our customers really liked from the previous year, and begin to source innovative and new Irish foods with a view to including them in our new 2018 Hamper collection. After product selection has been carefully made, the various Gourmet Hampers are then designed with specific ranges and price points taken in consideration. They are carefully photographed in Spring, and launched live on our website throughout the Summer. The full range is live, and available to reserve or pre-purchase by the end of August 2018. As we grow in size and reputation, we are finding that we are attracting more and more corporate companies who wish to purchase hampers in bulk. Irish Gourmet has historically catered first and foremost for the individual retail customer, and our honest pricing strategy - void of artificial inflation and so called "discounts" - is reflective of this. We sold our much sooner than anticipated in 2017. As such, we would like to encourage customers interested in placing an order for Christmas 2018, to get in touch with us ASAP. We only produce limited batches of Hampers, as the foods we include are fresh and made by artisan small Irish producers. It really does help them, and ourselves substantially, if you are able to reserve your Irish Gourmet Christmas Hamper ahead of time. A simple email enquiry would suffice, as this helps us to guarantee stock availability. Thank you for your assistance - we look forward to being of service for Christmas 2018.
