I am all for making things easy. As a single parent, time is of the essence, along with money so come Christmas with all the gifts to buy, alongside birthday presents for my Dad and Liv, everything can easily run away with me.
My parents always state that they do not want anything for Christmas, but we all know what parents are like… they do like something to unwrap!
Though, what do you get the people who actually have everything?
My mum is ridiculously fussy to buy for, skincare sets are out and I am pretty sure I have bought every kitchen utensil possible for her in the past. My dad much prefers books, but we cannot overload him with books for his birthday on Christmas Eve and then even more the next day!
Therefore, there is only one solution… a Hamper!
Making a hamper ensures you choose items you know the recipient will enjoy, however not all of us have the time required to make a hamper. There are so many pre-made hampers available at the moment – anything from hampers for wine lovers, sweet lovers, tea drinkers, food lovers… the list is endless.
What about something that includes a little of everything? Such as this awesome Seasons Eatings Hamper from Harvey Nichols?
Wrapped in a thick, luxurious Harvey Nichols emblazoned red ribbon, the rather cute wicker hamper includes:
Marc de Champagne Christmas Pudding 454g
Brandy Butter 210g
Cranberry Sauce with Burgundy 200g
Darjeeling Tea x 25 Tea Bags 50g
Breakfast Blend Ground Coffee 227g
Shortbread with Chocolate Chips 250g
Mixed Nuts 200g
Knotpaper Fabric Gift Wrap 60cm x 60cm
Rouge 2012 750ml
With such a fantastic selection of food, drink and accompaniments, I am pretty sure my parents would highly appreciate this hamper as a gift. The actual hamper itself can be used as storage afterwards, the perfect multi use gift to give this Christmas! Priced at £65, it is one of the more reasonably priced Christmas hampers in the Harvey Nichols range, if you are looking to impress this year then there is a certain wine filled hamper for £2000… slightly jealous of the person that will find that under their tree this year!
Disclosure: I was sent a Seasons Eatings Hamper for the purpose of this post.
