I love getting a bit creative at Christmas and adding that personal touch to my gifts.
Hampers are a great way of doing that.
You can select things that are super festive as well as things that you know someone will love, thereby adding your personal touch.
My festive faves to add to a hamper are:
•Mince Pies •Chocolate •Savoury bits
•Stollen •Nuts •Biscuits •Sweets
To add a personal touch I like to add:
•Their favourite chocolate •Vouchers
•Bath bombs •Shower gel •Books
If you are making a family hamper I like to add:
•Chocolate Santa’s •Chocolate coins
•Mini games •Card games •Puzzles
•Their fave toy •Craft packs •Sweets
Food is one of the best parts of Christmas and making someone something they can enjoy and share is great if they are harder to buy for or if it is a shared, family present.
This is also a great present for older relatives such as grandparents, aunties & uncles etc.
You can pick up hampers from loads of shops:
•The Range •B&M •Home bargains •The Works •TK Maxx
They come with the shredded paper in the bottom, cellophane and a ribbon which adds that finishing touch to your hamper.
I always put my hamper into the cellophane diagonally, in the centre and then gather up the edges of the cellophane above the basket and tie with the ribbon. You can then neaten it out and rearrange the cellophane as necessary.
Getting the cellophane part right can take a few goes, YouTube videos are great if you havn’t done it before.
Until next time,
