Christmas Gift Guide: Christmas Hamper Gifts

by S1m

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.

This looks amazing! Could I have the wine hamper though please?
Nah, it’s okay, I’ll settle for the Seasons Eatings one! 🙂

The wine hamper would definitely be mine lovely! No idea how long it would last though 😉

Yum yum, that sounds like an awesome gift! 🙂

Tell me about it, it is awesome! I love the wicker basket though, so many uses – would love to make a picnic basket with it 🙂

This is such a cute idea for Christmas gifts! If only my parents were near, I would have given them a similar gift to this. Hoping they’d love whatever my hamper will have.

Thanks for the idea! 😀

S1m October 29, 2014 - 8:56 pm

Absolutely! It has a little of everything. It’s always hard to know what to get for parents, more of a token than anything!x

Fred October 29, 2014 - 11:18 pm

I think this is a good idea for a Christmas gift for people dear to you, as well as valuable colleagues. Thanks for the suggestion.

S1m October 29, 2014 - 11:21 pm

Hampers are certainly a great idea to give at Christmas – fill them with anything! 🙂

Franc Ramon October 30, 2014 - 8:44 am

I’m sure they would love this hamper. It’s loaded with quality ingredients food and drinks

S1m October 30, 2014 - 10:44 am

Indeed, I am actually a little reluctant to pass it on to them… everything looks so pretty… and super yummy! Especially the wine 😉 x

Marie Clara October 30, 2014 - 2:30 pm

I’m sure your parents will love this gift from you! 🙂 This just gave me an idea what to give my parents. 🙂

S1m October 30, 2014 - 10:43 pm

Glad I could give you inspiration! 🙂 x

Latifah October 30, 2014 - 2:48 pm

I love this idea. I also think it is a great way to personalize gifts. I know what I will be giving to friends and family this year. Thank you for sharing.

S1m October 30, 2014 - 10:42 pm

Definitely, you can add little extras that they may like 🙂 Definitely the way to go! x

Loudthinkin October 30, 2014 - 3:16 pm

Awesome idea! A hamper can never disappoint if it is done carefully and yes it’s so true that parents never agree for presents but they love it when you surprise them with some!

S1m October 30, 2014 - 10:42 pm

Not at all, especially if filled with the little things that they love and miss due to living abroad!x

Tiffany Yong October 30, 2014 - 5:53 pm

Hampers are usually good ways to give a senior person a little of everything, especially when we are not sure what’s the best to buy! But this might end up either costing more or end up in the family member’s stomach instead of theirs!

S1m October 30, 2014 - 10:21 pm

Very, very true, it is hard to give away something so awesome! Hampers are definitely the way to go though – a little bit of everything 🙂 x

I need a hamper in my place 🙂
While I think parents will appreciate anything from their children, I’m sure your parents would love to have this as a present. I find it both functional and pretty.

S1m November 1, 2014 - 5:30 pm

It is an awesome idea – cuts down on the stress of finding the right presents and they can use the hamper afterwards… win win!!

Sin Yee October 31, 2014 - 3:29 am

Awww… This looks nice. I love its packaging.

S1m November 1, 2014 - 5:29 pm

It is lovely, it’s a really strong, sturdy hamper too! 🙂 xx

Janice Min November 1, 2014 - 9:56 am

Haha! I guess it’s a good idea 🙂 I might also buy a hamper for my parents.

S1m November 1, 2014 - 5:26 pm

Saves on buying smellies that may not ever get used!

eliz frank November 2, 2014 - 2:48 am

The hamper idea is brilliant. Instead of one gift, you can pull together a slew of small gifts.

Fernando Ceballos Lachica November 2, 2014 - 1:38 pm

Amazing for Christmas gifts indeed; more items to choose from. I think, Hamper could eventually enlarge their merchandise.

nicol November 2, 2014 - 11:39 pm

Pinkoddy November 4, 2014 - 8:53 pm

You are a genius! My nan in law needs gluten free stuff etc – and we could make her a hamper.

S1m November 5, 2014 - 10:53 am

Yey!! Glad I have given you inspiration chick! I am sure she will love the hamper idea!xx
