Ask your question

  • Sometimes I do themes like Mexican some mexican beer nacho chips salsa limes etc or italian with pasta olives cheese wine etc



  • Things that are personal to the recipient – eg notebook, vase, mug… Anything not too expensive but nice.



  • Definitely depends who it’s for for me – but usually wine, chocolates, candles, maybe a cheeseboard, olives or stuffed peppers and a decorative item from kmart or something :)



  • I think hampers are so creative and can be made really nicely . Women can have beauty products, candles , soaps etc that smells nice . Food hampers can have chocolates ,biscuits etc. I think you have to know the person too otherwise items can be unsuitable .



  • depends who it is for.

    soaps, candles, deoderant, perfumes, homemade cookies or treats, choccies, fruit cake, scratchies



  • Aprilb1 – personalising each hamper/basket is a great idea. Your ideas sounds great.



  • Depends who its for – my nan i gave her a hamper with teabags, biscuits, a calendar, candles, fruit cake, tea towles etc for my sister i do beauty items like body washes, sprays, candles, a yearly diary, chocolates etc



  • I like to put in wine/champagne,chocolates and gourmet goodies!



  • I put things like the dry ingredients for cookies which still need to be made in jars, with a note of what needs to be added to make them and how long to cook them, a wooden icy pole stick which has a heap of dried melted chocolate and a few little marhmellows on it, with insturctions attched like sit in a hot cup of milk, home made preserves, chutneys. and for christmas some homemade shortbread and fruit mince tart, and a few slices of fruit cake.



  • I make up mini sections for the hampers with all of the different Christmas treats.



  • I try to use a container that forms part of the present (washing basket/kitchen bowl/flower pot/chopping board) and then a mix of foods and other items that I think the recipient will like. Wrap the lot in a cellophane and top with a bow. Always looks great.



  • I do a good mix of both. Home made hampers are the way yo go. Cheaper and you can make sure everything will be enjoyed by the recipient



  • It depends on who I am constructing a hamper for, but it will mostly contain food like chocolates, biscuits, jams, snacks, and drinks/teas/coffees that they like.
