Have you used our personalised Christmas hamper service yet?

With our Build A Hamper service the perfect gift is just a few clicks away! When you want to create apersonalised Christmas hamper for friends, family or an important client, our easy DIY hamper creator should be your first stop. With a wide choice of hamper baskets, gift trays and bags to choose from as well as myriad of the best Christmas goodies to fill it with you can make their ideal hamper and add a personal touch too. With so much choice it can be hard to narrow down your personalised Christmas hamper contents so we’ve drawn up our list of 10 things every hamper should include ūüėČ

1. Bubbles

Whether you choose Prosecco or Champagne, a bottle of bubbles to stash away in the fridge will never go amiss.

2. Panettone

Some say it’s the new Christmas pudding although we think there’s room for both! Light, buttery and indulgent this is the perfect accompaniment to a hot chocolate in front of a roaring fire.

3. Luxury Coffee

Might seem like an odd choice but what nicer way to ease in to the holidays than a leisurely breakfast with a pot of the best, fresh coffee? Choose from strong or mellow blends for a touch of luxury that’s sure to be appreciated.

4. Smoked Salmon

Whilst they’re enjoying their luxury coffee your lucky recipients can whip themselves up some high-class breakfast with Smoked Salmon. Eggs Benedict is not your everyday breakfast but with a pack nestled inside their hamper your loved one can indulge themselves.

5. CheeseCheese, Salmon & Deli Hampers

No Christmas is complete without a near constant carousel of cheeses so naturally they need to be included in your personalised Christmas hamper. Include a couple of varieties like a crowd-pleasing cheddar and a creamy Stilton to appeal to all camps.

6. Savoury Biscuits

All that cheese has got to sit somewhere so hearty savoury biscuits are a must. Go for flavoured ones like red chilli or more subtle flavours like black pepper

7. Chocolate (in any form!)

Do we really need to explain this one? Milk, white, dark, wrapped around fudge, laced with liqueur we could go on and on…

8. Chutney

To perk up a turkey sandwich, to top off the perfectly stacked cheesy cracker or accompany the Christmas ham you’ve got to have some jars of chutney at Christmas.

9. Nuts

Great with wine or to snack of while watching their favourite Christmas movie nuts are an essential at Christmas. We stock plain varieties or those with more adventurous flavours if they like trying new things.

10. Port

Excellent with stilton and the natural partner to a mince pie, Port is traditional at Christmas and cannot be missed. We also do half bottles if you want just a hint of Christmas spirit.

Or we can do the hard work for you…
