Ultimate Christmas Hamper


Ultimate Christmas Hamper

Everyone wants to be that person that gives the best present this Christmas. After all, Christmas is about the giving and not receiving.

I think that a hamper is a lovely Christmas gift. It’s a gift that you can come back to time and time again, after the big day. Each time you use or eat something that was in that hamper, you can be grateful to the person who bought or put that hamper together for you.

I’m a big fan of making my own hampers using products that are a bit different or perhaps items that someone hasn’t tried before. That’s half the fun of receiving a Christmas hamper – trying things you have never bought for yourself. So I’ve put together my ‘Ultimate Christmas Hamper’ to help inspire you this Christmas.

Christmas Hamper

Corney & Barrow St-Emilion GFA Clemenceau 2012

This deep-plum coloured wine has a wonderful taste of red and black fruits. It’s perfect with food, so would make a great addition to a Christmas dinner table.

YumCha Elderflower Iced Tea

This is an instant iced tea. When you want a glass, you just add iced water to the mixture. This variant is made using elderflower petals and will have you feeling like summer is just around the corner.

The Great British Food Company’s Red Chilli Jam

Red in colour, fiery in taste, chilli jam is real winner in our house. Great with cheese or meats. Or mix it up and add it to gravy for a zing with your Christmas dinner.

Wild Island Lemongrass & Ginger Chill Oil

This flavoured oil is great for adding to simple dishes like a stir fry or wonderful as a dipping sauce. It can also be used to create depth in more complicated sauces. Great as a gift that will keep on giving.

Bean & Pod Milk Chocolate Cocoa Dusted Salt & Pepper Almonds

These are so moreish, they won’t last you until the New Year! These crunchy almonds, which are made in the UK, are a most welcome addition to our ultimate Christmas hamper.

Wild at Heart Wild Plum Chutney

This is a really versatile chutney. Packed full of wild plums, it packs a punch with cold meats and bubble ‘n’ squeak – perfect for those Christmas Day leftovers.

Sheppy’s Mulled Cider

This cider is perfect for the long-cold evenings. Wrap up warm and indulge in this delicious cider that has notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Smells and tastes like Christmas.

So which of these would make the cut for your ultimate Christmas hamper? What would you add into the mix?

      It’s such a good idea Helen. I love receiving a hamper. It’s such a nice way of receiving items you may not have tried.

    Some lovely pate and olives I would add into the mix but I especially love the chilli jam – that never lasts long in our house

      Oh my goodness, you are absolutely right Abby. How could I forget pate and olives. They are on my list of favourites too!
