Prestige Hampers offer a wide variety of hampers for all occasions but I was recently sent one of their Luxury Christmas Hampers. The perfect way for you send someone a lovely and thoughtful gift or even just an amazing way to treat yourself and get set up for the big day.
The hamper came all boxed up and was delivered safely. From the second you open the box you can feel the luxury, from the large wicker hamper with leather fittings, to the wooden gift tag. That’s all before you even open it up, an when you do you are in for a treat.
In my hamper, The Traditional Gift Basket, currently selling at £69.99, reduced from £99.99, I got so many food and drink treats, all of great quality and a lovely mix to suit most tastes. Here’s a list of the contents for you:
A bottle of Chardonnay and a bottle of Shiraz, both were very nice and easily drinkable. It can be so hard to get it right with wines and you can’t account for people’s tastes, but these two bottles are going to tick boxes for the majority.
On the sweeter side there was a box of Red Velvet Crunch Biscuits which looked amazing and tasted great too, the red colour lending itself to a Christmas plate. As well as a box of Walkers Shortbread Festive Shapes, I love these and always have, a real Christmas staple.
There was a box of English Breakfast Tea, not being a tea drinker I can’t comment on this, but Mum has been enjoying it at work.
For chocolate lovers there was a 120g box of Milk, White and Dark Chocolate Classic chocolates, I liked the variety of cremes and truffles, all very tasty. Plus there was also a bar of Beech’s Dark Chocolate, which was very good quality and delicious, I love Beech’s.
For Christmas day there is a Matthew Walker Classic Christmas Pudding, this is saved in the cupboard for the big day but looks yum. And there was a nice sized slab of Iced Fruit Cake which was also going to be saved but it kind of accidentally got eaten and it was good!
For breakfast or just because there was a jar of Mackay’s Christmas Marmalade, I’ve not tried this yet but with added cranberries it should be good. The jar of Mackay’s Christmas Preserve is nearly gone though, a jam that uses mulled wine was always going to be a winner in my books, but it exceeded expectations. The perfect accompaniment to a scone and would make an epic jam tart.
For a savoury snack the tub of Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Yorkshire Crisps should do the trick, these were delicious and I love the resealable tubs for Christmas, they make it so easy to use them for snacks or entertaining. The Handmade Smoked Oatcakes were a real surprise, the smokey flavour subtly making its way through the oatcake and a lovely bitesize round that made for a delicious post dinner snack with some cheese.
As you can see I got an awful lot and a real variety. I love that Prestige Hampers have a price point to suit everyone and such a selection of hampers you’ll be sure to find something even the fussiest of foodies will enjoy.
Personally I think I would find a way to treat myself to one each Christmas time, the joy of having a beautiful hamper to rummage through with the pure practicality of having all the Christmas treats you could need to see you through the holiday is a big win for me. Add to that the chance to get to try something you might not normally buy and there’s no way you can go wrong.
There’s still plenty of time to order in time for Christmas so why not pop over to the Prestige Hampers website and have a look.
