When it comes to choosing the items, you put in a Christmas gift hamper, it is important to think of the interest of the receiver. Consider the traditional items that make the holiday spirit, such as mince pies, fruit jam, fruitcake, and even Christmas pudding. These items will set the tone for the Christmas gift hamper. You can also add artisan products that are not found everywhere. The main strategy is to choose the best gift hamper that will suit the tastes of your receiver.
Here’s what to add to your next Christmas gift hamper.
Give into the Sweet Cravings
The winter holiday season is the best time to enjoy the sweet cravings of the year. Be sure to provide your recipient with plenty of sweet items in their Christmas gift hamper. Include freshly baked brownies, mini pies, and a variety of fudge. These options will pair well with the rest of the Christmas basket. You may even consider adding artisan chocolate as many artisan producers make their own chocolate in quality, small batches.
Balance With Savory Treats
Balance the sweet tooth with many savory options. This guilty pleasure is a sensation to enjoy during the holiday season. You can choose savory items such as nuts beef jerky, biscuits, and cheese. You can also add artisan crisps in a variety of flavors. All savory items also pair well with wine during the festive events.
Include Essential Christmas-themed Items
Any Christmas hamper would not be fully complete without the traditional holiday items. Be sure to include the festive puddings, mince pies, cheese, and cakes. While these items seem generic and overlooked, they will still set the tone for a great hamper this Christmas.
While you might have already included the sweet treats, chocolate is always a must-have when it comes to gift hampers. It is even considered as an incomplete gift without adding quality chocolate. Opt for artisan options such as chocolate covered sea salt caramels, fruit & nut bars, or gourmet dark chocolate strawberries.
