There is always at least one person on the old Christmas list that you have no idea what to buy when it comes to gift shopping. Whether they just have fussy tastes, are quite particular about things, or literally have everything that they want or need. So they can be tricky people to buy for, especially if you are on a selected budget. So if you’ve got one of those people on your list (I’m sure we all have), then putting together a hamper for them can be a really good idea.
You could choose a few of the their favourite things and pop them in a basket. Then they’re guaranteed to love it. But if you’re not likely to see them in person, sending one can cost a lot of money, as well as costing a lot to put it together and source a wicker hamper or basket. Plus, it can save time to just order online (honestly, online shopping is the dream).
I was recently sent a hamper from Hampers.com to see if I can put the theory to the test; does a hamper work for those people on your list that are tricky to be for? I was sent The Traditional Christmas Hamper an it was filled with all sorts of goodies. It included:
- Luxury mince pies
- Christmas pudding
- Mixed Nuts
And it was all presented in a large traditional wicker basket. The basket in itself was a treat as it can be used for storage in the home but it looks good too. The things that you get in the hamper is vast, which is why they can make a really great gift. I was really impressed by the quality of the produce in the hamper too; some brands that I had heard of, others that I hadn’t. But all good quality regardless. So it is easy to see that Hampers.com don’t skimp on the items that they select for their hampers.
Coming in at £90 for this traditional Christmas gift hamper, I do think you get value for money, though it sounds like a lot. When you price up the items individually, including a large wicker hamper, then I think you do get value for money. Plus, there is something for all tastes here. It is a large hamper too, so like to be a gift for a family, rather than an individual. So when you think about it that way, it is value for money and what you’d spend if you were buying three of four people separate gifts.
I would honestly recommend a hamper from Hampers.com if you’re looking for a gift to send to someone.
But if this one doesn’t work for you, then here are a few other options from Hamper.com – the variety is huge! There will be something that takes your (or your recipients) fancy.
