Make your own Hamper Kit

With Halloween and Bonfire night out of the way, it’s time to focus on the main event – Christmas!

Yes, we said it and we’re not even sorry. With less than 7 weeks until the big day, it’s time to prepare for Christmas and there’s lots of Christmas shopping that needs to be done. So why not grab a mug of hot chocolate, light your favourite Christmas candle and get comfortable whilst we tell you how to make a truly personal present for your loved ones this year.

If you’re tired of buying the same presents for your family and friends, how about creating your own hamper basket filled with a bundle of gifts that you know the recipient will love?

Sometimes, buying your own pre-filled hamper can contain products that your friend or loved one doesn’t necessarily like, therefore it goes to waste. With the help of our hamper kit, you have everything you need to make your very own hamper basket that you can fill with anything you want. Whether you fancy creating a food hamper filled with your sibling’s favourite sweet treats or want to create a lovely arrangement of relaxing candles and bath products for your busy mum, our hamper kit can help you create the gift with a personal touch.

What is included in our make your own hamper kit?

  • A double steamed willow basket (L 40cm x W 30cm x H 11cm)
  • Ivory coloured wood wool for the base of the basket
  • Heat shrink bag
  • Ivory bow
  • Gift tag
