Nothing quite has the ‘personal touch’ quite like a homemade hamper for christmas. Sure you can buy ready made ones, but make one with someone special in mind, collating and collecting their favourite things into a hamper speaks volumes on Christmas Day. Down to the sheer thoughtfulness of the gift! Now isn’t that lovely! I admit, a lot of hassle I hear you say, as if we don’t have enough on our plate at this time of year, the thing is, you can make it as complicated or as simplistic as you want. Start with a theme, decide on food, whether you are going for chutneys and crackers or cheese, there’s alcohol options and if you are feeling really creative you could create a beauty hamper!
This year we are focusing on the food aspect as let’s face it, we all love to gorge ourselves with Christmas delicacies and a luxury food hamper is a sure fire way to please your recipient.
