Undoubtedly the best part of the gifting season is Christmas Food Hampers, it’s a beautiful way to remember our loved ones’ taste buds. ‘Christmas Hamper’ goes way back to 1917 during ‘World War 1’ when our beloved brand here in the UK Fortnum and Mason sent ‘Christmas Cheer’ hampers to English troops and it has since then taken over the world. The content is not far from what we see now from various brands.
Christmas hampers are a delectable way of saying I love you to family and friends, it’s a curated basket of the store of various delicacies. If you’ve ever received hampers for Christmas in the past you’d know the feeling. There are various options out there that range from wine and chocolates to biscuits, jam, cookies e.t.c. Christmas hampers are so luxurious and are easily appreciated by anyone. Opting for a good Christmas hamper starts from the thought of it and knowing the preference of who you’re gifting – some can be vegan, and some don’t mind any.
This year, to avoid the Christmas rush and catastrophe, it’s good to prepare in advance which is why Covet is bringing this to you early, thanks to many brands and retailers that have put this year’s hampers out early, some are even available for pre-order, all to make the sound of jingle bells pleasant.
Choosing the right hampers starts with your budget and whether you want an Alcohol or self-indulgent treasure trove, Harvey Nichols for example has one of the best Wine hampers, while Marks and Spencer has an affordable luxurious store of delights for the taste buds, the options are all up to you. There are plant-based options too, for those who prefer this and you can either go high or go low it all depends on your budget.
To be honest when it comes to budgeting and choosing the best hampers, the thought is what counts not so much how much you spent or how big the hamper is. Moreso, hampers make great gifts for those you find difficult to know what they’d like, and for those you’re sure will love good Christmas hampers, ensure you know their personal taste and include it in the hampers, timing is also important, make sure the hampers are delivered on time as some do contain fresh produce, they’re indeed a great grand gesture when it comes to Christmas gifting.
