Whether you’ve got a foodie friend, a chocoholic family member or that one person you know who’s a nightmare to find a present for, a hamper could be the answer to all of your present-buying woes.
Hampers are a great way to spoil your loved ones with a treasure trove packed full of tasty treats. Christmas hampers in particular can make a really thoughtful gift at a time of year when it can be difficult to find something to suit each and every person you’re buying for on the high street.
It’s no wonder that giving hampers as Christmas gifts has been popular for some time. This type of gifting during the festive season is thought to have originated during the Victorian times, when hampers were a popular way of showing appreciation. Following the development of the railway system in the UK, which then resulted in modernised transport methods overall, it became easier and easier for people to send delicious food and drink gifts to loved ones in even the furthest corners of the country.
The hamper experience
When giving a hamper as a gift there are many different layers to the wonderful experience. Not only does the person receiving the hamper get to enjoy opening and trying all of the delicious treats stored inside, but they can work through all of the tasty contents over the coming days at their leisure. Plus, they have a gorgeous box or basket to repurpose for something else!
Don’t be offput if you’re worried about overspending this Christmas – hampers don’t have to be expensive. The great thing about a Christmas hamper is that you can make it work for you and the person you wish to buy for. Smaller offerings focusing on a specific treat, like chocolate or wine, are a great introductory option, whilst larger, more flamboyant baskets make excellent gifts for esteemed clients or special loved ones. You can even experiment with creating your own homemade hampers, filling them with items that mean something to the person you’re buying for. Our hampers start at less than £20, so you’re sure to find the perfect gift no matter what budget you’re working too.
