Christmas hampers make great presents at this time of year. When you’re stuck for present inspiration, an excited hamper full of tasty treats, beauty essentials or simply fun little gifts can be a great way to put a smile on your recipient’s face. Here, we’ve gathered our ideas and inspiration for themed Christmas hampers, so you can build up the perfect gift box for your nearest and dearest.

For the sweet tooth…

Christmas and chocolate go together like strawberries and cream. In fact, Christmas and anything sweet go together perfectly, which is why we’ve got plenty of inspiration for a sweet Christmas hamper. From indulgent chocolates to fudge, biscuits, fruity jellies and more, your loved ones are sure to be spoilt rotten with the delicious treats on offer.

For the savoury fan…

Featuring the creamiest of cheeses, savoury crackers and a nut selection that’s sure to tempt you, this collection of savoury treats makes for one delicious Christmas hamper. Be sure to keep the cheese elements cold before you hand over your thoughtful gift.

For the gift of relaxation... 

Christmas is a great time of year to encourage a little relaxation among friends and family, and we’ve got a super soothing collection of candles, creams and bath fizzers to help your nearest and dearest enjoy a little R&R at this busy time of year.

For the gin lover... 

Gin seems to have grown in popularity, and is no longer considered purely a summer drink. In our inspiration for a gin lover’s hamper, you’ll find flavoured gins, mixers to pair with your gin and delightful glasses to enjoy a gin from.

A homemade hamper is a great way to treat family and friends to the things they love best. Simply buy a basket of decorative box and pick up a few of their favourite nibbles, jars, and chocolates like our suggestions below - then wrap them up together as a simple-yet-adorable homemade hamper.

How to make a Christmas hamper

  • Find a box, wooden crate or wicker basket to put all your chosen items into
  • Cover the base of your hamper with shredded paper ‘straw’, scrunched up tissue paper
  • Add glitter or coloured beads and sequins to add a little extra sparkle
  • Wrap the whole hamper in cellophane - ideally the recipient’s favourite colour
  • Tie it all up with ribbon or twine and stick a festive bow or gift tag to the top
