Christmas is the time to spread festive cheer to your nearest and dearest. While there’s nothing like the feeling of giving someone a fabulous present you know they’ll love, there’s no denying Christmas gifting can be a bit of a minefield. It can be a struggle to choose something you’re a hundred percent sure they’ll like (and we all know it isn’t a nice feeling to receive a gift you know you won’t use, either). But no matter who you’re shopping for, beautiful Christmas hampers full of tasty food, delicious drinks, and indulgent items are the perfect festive treat, and best of all – there’s pretty much zero chance of them being ‘re-gifted’!

Even if they’re the fussiest of recipients, have the quirkiest taste, or already seem to ‘have everything’, the important people in your life won’t help but feel spoiled when a luxury Christmas hamper arrives on their doorstep. Whether it’s your best friend, partner, family, colleague, or client, (or maybe yourself?), a beautifully presented Christmas basket brimming with indulgent delicacies is bound to put a huge smile on anyone’s face. Christmas hampers feel thoughtful, generous, and tailored to the giftee, but one of the best parts about ordering a hamper as a Christmas gift is that it’s curated, packed, wrapped and delivered, making it essentially effortless on your part. All you have to do is choose!

So, how DO you choose the best Christmas hampers for the different people in your life?

The crowd-pleaser

Christmas gifting can be tricky, so when you’re selecting the perfect Christmas hamper for someone, sometimes it can be best to steer clear of anything really specific and choose a hamper filled with items that absolutely anyone would love. Nothing says 'Merry Christmas' like champagne, wine and/or delicious gourmet nibbles, and a ‘crowd-pleaser’ style of Christmas hamper makes the perfect gift for your office Secret Santa, a neighbour, a relative, a friend, or client. Choosing this type of Christmas hamper also works well when you’re gifting hampers to multiple people such as corporate clients or members of your family – everyone gets the same, and they’re sure to suit everyone.

Something like our Essential Hamper, which contains premium Cuvee chocolate, a luxe gold eye mask, a bottle of wine, a fragrant vanilla and cacao scented candle, Huskee coffee cup, and Tiny’s French martini, is the ideal selection for anyone to receive at Christmas time.

Also sure to please is a beautiful picnic hamper delivery. Either pre-Christmas Day or on the day, this is a lovely idea that anyone would appreciate. Whether it’s a picnic in the park, a luxe lunch, or just a treat that means they don’t have to cook, this type of hamper as a gift idea is guaranteed to go down well.

Pamper packs

Got someone in your life who needs spoiling, loves to be pampered, or deserves some extra-special TLC this Christmas? Choose a specially curated, sumptuous Christmas hamper that lets them take self-care to the next level. Perfect for mum, a partner, or someone who typically doesn’t prioritise their own ‘me-time’, deliver them an option like our Pamper Pack which includes the likes of Cuvee dark hot chocolate, a gua sha facial tool, luxury body bar and scented candle. Alternatively, encourage them to bliss out with The Relaxation Hamper, featuring Cuvee chocolate, wine, a cocktail trio, Huskee coffee cup and deliciously scented candle, or spoil them rotten with the Indulgence Hamper, brimming with sweet treats, drinks, and luxe beauty items.

Luxury hampers

After a Christmas gift idea for that ‘hard to buy for’ person you know? Or need to really impress someone in your professional life? Christmas is a time for celebrating generosity, and there's no better way to mark it than with an ultra-luxurious gift hamper. Show someone how much they mean to you with an opulent Christmas basket like our Premium Hamper or our Lux Hamper, both overflowing with different combinations of cocktails, candles, artisan sweet treats, champagne, beauty treatments and more.

Or, if your recipient is a discerning foodie, they’ll love the luxury of a Gourmet Picnic Hamper. There’s no better time than the festive season to indulge someone with the likes of lobster rolls, gourmet cheeses, pink chocolate dipped strawberries, lemon tarts and more, and make a special occasion even more special.

Go all-out

Christmas is for people to come together and celebrate, and sometimes you need an option that covers everyone! Get your office Christmas party started, spoil your whole family, or perhaps send a gift to a group of your clients with a beautiful big Christmas hamper everyone can share (or maybe it’s a grand gesture for one special person!) Something like our Celebration Hamper guarantees good times with both champagne and non-alcoholic wine, two scented candles, a whole selection of cocktails, chocolate, and gourmet fairy floss.

Another option for gifting a gourmet Christmas feast is a Family Picnic Hamper filled with enough gourmet locally sourced produce, drinks, and sweet treats for a group of four. Ours even comes with a stylish cooler bag and cute checkered picnic rug, so even after they’ve enjoyed the likes of tarts, sliders, sandwiches, snacks, and sweets, the gift can live on and be used again and again.

So whether you’re someone who plans their presents ahead of time, or you’re searching for a last-minute gift (that won’t seem ‘last-minute’), a gorgeous Christmas hamper is the perfect solution for just about anyone. No more dreading Christmas shopping: you’ve found the perfect Christmas gift idea for any person or budget.
