I have to say that even though I am a huge lover of Christmas (just type Christmas into the search bar to your right!), even I thought it might have been a ~little~ too early to start writing Christmas posts! As much as I try, I don’t think I will ever be the type to start preparing for Christmas early. I just feel like that kind of frantic-ness whether that’s related to Christmas dinner, or presents or having people over, just is a part of what Christmas is!
Nevertheless, there are people who are pretty much sorted for Christmas an entire 2 months early (whom I applaud) so whether you are shopping for Christmas gifts or you’re hosting a soiree, I have got you sorted with Prestige Hampers.
When Prestige Hampers got in touch and asked if I’d like to review a Christmas hamper, I *obvs* jumped at the chance! I didn’t know which one they would send but I cheekily asked if they could possibly throw in a bottle of red… Spoiler alert: I was pleasantly surprised.
The first thing that I noticed and absolutely loved was the actual wicker hamper that all of the incredible contents arrived in. It feels such good quality and you could definitely use this around the house for storage or you could take it on picnics, as my Mum wants to do (lol love her!). Everything was very well-packed as well, so no danger of anything arrived broken!
They kindly sent me the Elegant Christmas hamper* which included:
- A bottle of Chardonnay
- A bottle of Merlot (yaaaaaas)
- A box of English Tea teabags
- Yorkshire Crisps Cured Ham & Pickle flavour
- Petit Chocolate collection
- Farmhouse Biscuits Sticky Toffee Pudding Biscuits
- Love Cocoa Crisp Popcorn
- Beanies Double Chocolate Coffee
- Shortbread House Shortbread with Cinnamon & Demerara
- Dormens Chocolate Covered Raisins
- Coles Figgy Christmas Pudding
- Farmhouse Cranberry & Pumpkin Savoury Biscuits
- Chocolate Peanut Brittle
- Mrs Bridges Christmas Preserve
- Mrs Bridges Christmas Marmalade
I haven’t tried everything from the hamper yet, apart from the popcorn and the sticky toffee pudding butter biscuits (both of which I can confirm are absolutely delicious), but I just think this hamper is incredible. I have ordered from Prestige Hampers before and their service and delivery is bang-on and I just think this would make the most thoughtful gift for a loved one, because it’s got sweet gifts, savoury gifts and of course WINE! What is there not to love?!
The hamper costs £120, which I think is fairly reasonably priced. I also love that they use so many British brands, it’s a great way of finding new products and smaller businesses to support.
I think the dream would be to build your own Christmas hamper. Can you imagine?! My ideal Christmas hamper would have lots of red wine, lots of cheese, crackers, sliced meats and olives. YUM!
What would your ideal Christmas hamper look like?
