Christmas just shouts hampers. I love seeing what’s in them and there’s nothing more exciting than receiving one and admiring the contents. Plus, they generally cover all bases and eventualities.
This is exactly where Handpicked Hampers come in. Whether it’s for yourself, a gift or you have a house full of guests over the Christmas period, the hampers here are beautifully presented and combine so many favourites. Not to forget, that even when all the contents have been eaten/drunk/used up you’ve still got a lovely wicker hamper to re-use.
When Chloe, owner of Handpicked Hampers asked if she could send me the ‘Christmas Joy Hamper‘ to review, I obviously wasn’t going to say no! After all, I love supporting small businesses and a hamper is something I can show off to my friends and family too.
You have a choice of having it in a Gift Box (£28) or Wicker Basket (£34) and a complimentary personalised gift tag with both. Personally, I think the wicker hamper is amazing value and adds a really nice touch to the whole thing.
The hamper itself was packaged really well (so no worrying about it getting damaged!) and inside I had the delight of discovering the following items:
- Belvoir Mulled Winter Punch
- Buttermilk Mince Pie Fudge
- In a Pickle Christmas Chutney
- Percy’s Night & Day White Chocolate Straws
- Cocoba Mulled Wine Truffles
Heaven or what?! A fabulously festive selection of items from independent businesses and the attention to detail really does stand out. I’ve already tried the fudge (oops) and it is sooo delicious.
What is also great about Handpicked Hampers is that there is the option to Create Your Own Hamper, which is ideal if you want to tailor the hamper to someone, or you want to keep your eye on costs. You can simply curate the perfect hamper, and they will do all the hard work for you.
With any hamper you buy you can choose to have nominated day delivery too, so you get piece of mind that it will arrive on a date of your choice.
So, what are you waiting for? Take the pressure off finding gifts this Christmas and go all out with a fabulous Christmas Hamper! It’ll keep you stocked up for all those parties and family gatherings too. The entire range can be found in this very handy brochure here.
