Christmas Hampers for the Foodie in Your Life
For the true foodie, Christmas hampers are always a delight to receive. Whether the gourmet in your life is a coffee addict, a chocoholic or a connoisseur of fine wines, there’s a hamper to suit them. You can also buy seasonal foodie gift baskets aimed at particular dietary needs, such as vegans or diabetics, or those with gluten or lactose intolerances.
The festive season is a time of sheer sumptuousness, and what better way of indulging than with some posh chocs, dates, biscuits, chutney, cheese or smoked salmon? Treat someone special to a real taste of luxury!
Want to take an ethical approach? Go organic or stuff your basket with fair-trade treats from honey to cashew nuts and more.
Equally, of course, you can tailor-make your own gift basket, filling it with things you know the recipient will love.
With so much to organise at this time of year, a food hamper which sorts out the pudding, the Stilton, the cranberry jelly and the like can really make life easier for the recipient.
Few things sum up the spirit of the season like a hamper packed with the finest edible delights. After all, hampers have their origins in food. The earliest versions evolved after fruit pickers began using these baskets. And, long before picnicking became commonplace, travellers would pack up wicker hampers to sustain them on cross-country coach journeys. In Victorian times, the lady of the house would hand out hampers stuffed with tucker, and sometimes clothes, to favoured employees or estate residents.
The other great thing about Christmas hampers is the way that most are so packed with non-perishable foodstuffs that they last for months into the New Year. Many also come with recipe books, re-usable jars and containers and the like, as a reminder of the gorgeous gift long after the treats have been enjoyed. The hamper itself is also perfect for kitchen storage, summer picnics and house moves.
So, go on, make Christmas special for someone you love, and their family. With various payment programmes around, giving a festive hamper is also much cheaper than you probably thought.
