Easter food gifts

With Mother's Day & St Patricks Day only just over, Easter is now fast approaching! With Good Friday on the 2nd April, Easter Sunday on the 4th & Easter Monday the 5th April.

The Easter holidays are generally a time for family get-togethers, be it a family picnic, barbeque or sit down dinner. This is why a food hamper is an increasingly popular Easter present. Our new spring range of hampers are perfect for a family feed, as they contain a mixture of sweet & savoury gourmet items, fresh meats such as ham & salmon and pressed apple juice.

Irish Gourmet is also pleased to introduce some special Easter-themed gift baskets this year, to compliment our existing good food hampers. Our Easter gifts baskets are perfect presents for children & contain cute stuffed animals such as bunnies & chicks, chocolate easter eggs as well as lollies & candies. You can also add extra items to a basket if it is for more than 1 child to enjoy!

Our Easter presents can be delivered directly to the lucky recipients, across Ireland & the UK for only £3.99. Courier companies will not be delivering on Good Friday & Easter Monday, so we suggest picking a delivery date of the 1st April at the latest. So why not send your kids, grandchildren, nephews, nieces, godchild or family an Easter gift basket today & they can enjoy it together over the holiday period.
