Homemade Christmas Hamper Ideas
Hampers are said to be one of the most thoughtful gifts that a loved one can receive and we can certainly see why, who wouldn’t want to receive a basket full of their favourite things? The best thing about hampers of course is that you can tailor them specifically and make them unique, which will make the recipient feel particularly loved at Christmas.
This year, treat a loved one to a homemade Christmas hamper! We know that sometimes pre-made hampers can be a little pricey, so by creating your own, you can make the gift as in-expensive or as indulgent as you like! Once you’ve filled the basket with all their favourite things, you can also add extras inside, which pre-made hampers don’t come with, like special notes, chocolate coins or cinnamon sticks for an aromatic Christmas touch. The best part? Not only are hampers thoughtful, they are also incredibly useful, as the baskets can be used as fantastic storage solutions afterwards.
First of all, you’ll need a stylish wicker hamper basket, then write down a list of all their favourite things to fill it with it.
Here are a few of our favourite ideas to get you started:
(Please note that our hampers are provided empty, the products shown in the images are for display purposes only)
Our Red Rope Paper Hamper Trays are delicately woven from twisted paper and come in 3 different sizes, so your gift can be as dainty or as indulgent as you want it to be! We just love that vibrant red colour – perfect for Christmas. Then complete it with one of our bright Golden Festive Gift Bows and a Forest Green Gift Tag to write your own personal message on.
Now what to fill it with? Fudge, a bottle of bubbly or perhaps a selection of cheeses. Or why not all 3?
For The Gardener
For the green fingered member of the family, create a luxurious yet affordable gift that they will absolutely adore. Fill up one of our gardening trugs with some of our Green Paper Hamper Shred to resemble their botanical garden, a pair of gardening gloves and some seeds. To make this gift extra special, perhaps even add some of their favourite body wash for an extra personal touch?
A Stylish Hamper
Our sleek, contemporary Antique Wash Wicker Storage Hamper Baskets are perfect for the ultimate stylish gift. Complete them with a selection of their favourite cake and jam or cheese, chutney and crackers. Then pop a Silver Raffia Gift Bow to add elegance to this perfect gift.
For The Couple Who Has Everything
What to get for the couple who has everything? Treat them to an extra special gift this Christmas and buy them a brand-new trunk, which you can fill with delectable Christmas goodies such as a pack of Lebkuchen, their favourite tipple, mince pies, Christmas cake, mince pie fudge and some Christmas tea. Once they have finished enjoying their treats, they can use their beautiful new trunk for a multitude of things. Woven from sturdy rattan and complete with stylish leather straps, this Grey & Buff Rattan Storage Chest looks exceptional in any room of the home.
That’s just the beginning of our beautiful range of hamper baskets. Browse our huge selection of beautiful hamper kits here and choose your favourite. And remember, the bits to go inside don’t have to be expensive. Whatever you decide to fill it with, as long as it’s personal to them, they will love it.
Another tip from us: choose from our range of bows, tags and shredded paper to make the hamper EVEN more personal. Why not narrow it down to their favourite colour? You can view our hamper kit accessories here.
