Hampers for the Perfect Host

We’re going to let you into a little pre-Christmas secret… our hampers really come into their own when you have to cater for impromptu drinks and nibbles over the festive season.

Whoever holds the key to our Taste of Christmas Carton will never be caught out. A beautiful bottle of crisp Botter Prosseco gets proceedings off to a jolly start. Nestled in beside Cartwright and Butler crunchy cheese biscuits and chili and garlic olives you will find perfect Perthshire oatcakes, light and creamy Rendles salmon and dill pate, Arran cheddar or Mrs Bridges apricot and peach preserve.

And there’s always room for a warm, aromatic mince pie, whatever the time of day.

Those who adhere to this festive motto will feel well equipped with the Wee Festive Artisan hamper. Brew a perfect pot of Super Fruit Tea whilst guests enjoy handmade mince pies or a slice of irresistible Campbell’s Bakery Christmas cake.

Last but not least, enter the Christmas Fayre Gift Bag. Complete with a scrumptious Mathew Walker Classic Christmas pudding, Rendles All Butter Palmiers baked with decadent gouda & edam cheese, topped with Mrs Bridges delicious Christmas spiced fruit chutney.

If that sounds like the perfect way to spend the festive season, then make sure you kit out your friends and family with all they need to host the perfect festive drinks soirée.

Christmas Hampers – get more bang for your buck

Why spend £30 on a single staff gift this Christmas when you can spend the same amount of money on a nicely presented gift hamper which includes more than a dozen items? No brainer right?!

Christmas Hampers are one of the few corporate gifts that are so versatile and good value for money that it would be crazy not to think about them as a way of motivating your employees.

Here are three reasons why Christmas hampers should be given some serious consideration when rewarding staff this festive season. 


Hampers can include near enough any range or combination of items. You can buy cheese and wine hampers, chocolate hampers, hampers full of meat or savoury items, even hampers that include retro sweeties. 

Don’t limit yourself by giving staff a bottle of wine. Instead a hamper that includes a range of gourmet items will go down a lot better and be much more appreciated.

If you show your staff how much they are worth through the gifts you give them, they are likely to show appreciation and loyalty in the work ethic they give in return.

Bespoke services

The good thing with corporate Christmas hampers is that you are not restricted to a standard range. If you have staff with dietary requirements (i.e. gluten free) or you want to include unique items within the hampers, you can. 

Most companies will be more than willing to accommodate your needs, and even if they can’t fulfil exactly what you want they will make sure to source a suitable alternative. 

Value for money

As well as getting a lot more for your money, ordering staff hampers in bulk will often result in volume discounts.  

If budgets are tight this year, then hampers could be the way forward for a truly memorable staff gift with massive money saving potential.
