Trying to decide on what Christmas gift to buy for someone can be difficult. You may have no idea what they’re interested in or you may be having trouble trying to decide on just one gift. Regardless, it can be a stressful and time-consuming chore if you’re having trouble picking something. But, it doesn’t have to be. If you’re a little unsure of what present to pick for your friend or loved one, why not consider creating them a DIY gift hamper that has a little bit of everything? Not only are hampers a ton of fun to create, but with a little bit of everything in them, the recipients have a lot of fun receiving them.
Traditional hampers tend to contain food and beverages, but that doesn’t mean yours has to. DIY Christmas hampers are easy to create and you have an unlimited amount of items and themes that you can choose from. Take a look at 5 of the best Christmas hamper ideas for 2021.
Wine is a traditional inclusion in many hampers, but, if you know that the recipient is a bit of a wine connoisseur, why not go all out and theme the entire hamper around the tasty grape? You can include a few bottles of their favourite drop and even include a few that you know they haven't tried yet. Any wine fan knows that one of the best parts about drinking wine is trying new bottles and finding new favourites. You can make the hamper extra special by including a wine bottle opener and a set of some new champagne flutes or wine glasses. This will create a lovely, well thought out hamper that anyone would love to receive. Why not take the wine hamper to the next level and think about including some cheese pairings that can be matched to the bottles of wine you have included?
With the help of copious amounts of craft beer now available on the market, you can never go wrong with creating a craft beer gift hamper. Many speciality alcohol stores will allow you to buy craft beer cans as singles, so why not go and pick a bunch of different cans that look interesting and tasty? Pair them with a nice beer glass or two and you have a hamper that will go down well with anyone. Some added gourmet extras such as tasty nuts and pretzels will also pair well with the beers and create a tasty gift hamper. And best of all, it’s simple and easy to create.
3. An assortment of everything
If you’re shopping for someone and you are genuinely stuck for ideas or a theme for their hamper, why not create them a handcrafted hamper instead? You can include a little bit of everything, from a bottle of wine to a few beers, some chocolate, salty snacks, a pretty candle, an interesting new book, some delicious preserves, the list could go on. The beauty of homemade hampers is the fact that you can put literally anything in them. Stock the hamper full of food, drinks and small items and you have a gift that would impress anyone. Include some Christmas bits and pieces such as Santa sweets or candy canes and the hamper will be complete.
For the chocolate lovers out there, receiving a hamper that is full of their favourite sweet treats will be an absolute delight. Try heading out to a local speciality sweet or chocolate shop and hitting the international isles at the supermarkets to include some sweet treats they might not have had a chance to try yet. Include a bunch of their favourites as well and you’ll have a winning hamper in no time. Try including some international lollies from around the world to really give them something that will delight their tastebuds. Why not include a hot chocolate mug and some instructions on how to create hot chocolate made from real chocolate from scratch too?
5. Tea and coffee
Any tea and coffee drinker will be able to tell you that there is no such thing as too much tea or coffee in the cupboard. So, you might as well take them at their word and gift them a hamper full of their favourite hot drinks. The beauty of tea and coffee is the fact that there are so many varieties out there that you can include any number of new drinks for them to try. Head to your local speciality tea and coffee store and grab some small containers of luxury flavours. Grab some of their favourite coffee beans, include some shortbread cookies, chocolate-covered beans, gourmet chocolates and coffee liquor chocolates for the hamper and you’re well on your way to creating a gift they will love.
Try including a gorgeous little teacup or coffee mug, a tea leaf strainer or a coffee bean grinder to really take their experience to the next level.
