Filed Under: All Categories

Why not create your own hampers this Christmas?  All you need is a pretty basket, some tissue paper and some gifts to go in it.  Themes work well, so think about what the recipient likes and be creative!

After Christmas the empty hamper baskets can be used for storage too so they make a really versatile gift.  Here are our top 10 ideas for Christmas hampers we have come up with:

Food and drink Hamper

The traditional hamper that everyone thinks of at Christmas is a food and drink hamper which provides a gift that can last well after Christmas if you add preserves and foods and drinks with a long shelf life. Whether you have a fair trade theme or just choose from  favourites, a food and drink hamper is sure to be enjoyed.

Chocolate and sweeties Hamper

You know this is going to be a winner.  A firm favourite with chocolate bars, biscuits and cakes or theme it with flavours such as mint or orange.

Pamper hamper with soaps and smellies

Ideal for any loved one, you can choose from relaxing toiletries or perfumes with body and facial scrubs and brushes or include some scented candles to complete the mood.

Movie night hamper with a film, popcorn and a drink

A great way to add to the DVD or Blu-ray they want with the cinema favourites of popcorn, fizzy drinks and bagged sweets.

Sporty hamper with accessories, socks and deodorant

Pick their favourite sport and theme the goodies.  Good quality sports socks are always a winner.  To make it that little bit different also consider relaxing muscle rubs or massage balms for aiding recovery.

Pet lover's hamper with ornaments, jewellery and themed stationery

Choosing a pet as a theme gives a great coordinated range of matching gifts- be it Cat, Dog or Horse, etc! 

New baby survival hamper with nappies, wipes and a bottle of wine!

A fun and useful gift, the hamper provides great storage in the nursery and nappies and wipes will definitely get used.  You can add newborn clothes or toys and the wine will definitely be appreciated!

Art and craft hamper with crafting supplies eg. beads, papers, glue

Crafters always appreciate additional supplies.  Another alternative is our range of wrapping paper which has proved really popular for use as craft paper or as backing for invitations.

Gardener's hamper with gloves, hand lotion and seeds

The perfect gift for those with green fingers, a gardeners hamper basket is well timed with spring just around the corner.  Choose from the seeds that are planted in spring and include useful accessories such as trowels, gloves or hand salves.

Stationery hamper with notebooks, pencils and pens

A gift for the budding writer or artist!  Pens, pencils  and paints combined with notepads, writing paper, or sketch pads make a great personalised gift.
