I’m a little late on the Christmas gift guide wagon this year but there is ALWAYS more time for some last-minute shopping. This year I have four gift guides for you and here’s number one!
Hampers are such a traditional gift and what I love most is that you can customize them to fit the recipient perfectly. There are so many different things out there that are just asking to be added to a hamper, and with miniatures, travel sizes and samples more readily available, bundles are easier than ever to make and create at home. Here are some of the foodie goodies I have found that will be perfect for basket stuffing!
I Heart Wines miniature bottles – There is something really sweet about a mini bottle of wine or fizz (although we all know there’s never enough… especially over the festive period) well I Heart Wines have a vast selection of their premium wines and bubbles available as individual servings making them the perfect addition to any hamper.
Rowse Cut Comb Acacia Honey – Honey might not seem like a very glamorous Christmas gift but as far as honey goes this is the VIP stuff! It has a delicate, fruity flavour that for even non-honey lovers transforms any breakfast or bake.
Milk&More Cartwright and Butler selection – I discovered milk and ore when I was looking for a stress free way to finish my Christmas shopping. Milk&More allows you to order necessities (and the non-necessary stuff too) online and have it delivered straight to your door – no delivery charge! This Christmas, milk&more have introduced a range of exquisite Cartwright & Butler products that are great hamper fillers. I loved the salted caramel biscuit tin that will add a touch of luxury to your gifts.
Rubylous Treat Co Mini Gingerbread House – This Adorable mini edible gingerbread house can be used as a mug hanger, Christmas tree decoration or favour around the Christmas table. It’s a lovely addition to a Christmas bundle and you can even buy the cutters to make your own if you want!
Doisy and Dam 25g bars – Doisy and Dam create superfood chocolate in a variety of quirky and fun flavours. Their bars are available in 25g and 80g. My favourites? Maple, toasted rice and pink salt dark chocolate and Date and Himalayan pink salt milk chocolate!
Bonieri Chocolates – BONIERI brings traditional Italian gianduja chocolates to London. Their smooth velvet textured chocolates melt in the mouth and are a lovely hamper filler.
The English Provender chutneys and pickles – Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the obligatory selection of chutneys and pickles. Well if there’s ever the time to have the best of the best it’s during the festive season. The English Provender have a range of chutneys that are inspired by timeless as well as contemporary chutneys. you can’t beat their classic red onion chutney!
Or… if you don’t fancy making your own!
Belazu Christmas Hamper – the 11 products in the Belazu Christmas hamper have 17 Great Taste Awards between them! Inside you’ll find a recipe booklet along with a selection of premium oils, preserves, pastes and more!
