Christmas Hampers


Hampers are a great gift at Christmas, especially for those people that seem to have everything. The ones you can't honestly think of a thing to give them.  A hamper is a bit of luxury that can be enjoyed over the holidays with little effort. 

John Lewis sent me one of their luxury hampers to try. It was a rather boozy hamper, although there was tea and coffee in their too as well as some good quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar and a wooden tray filled with dried fruits that are destined to appear in a cake very soon.

John Lewis has a huge range of hampers for all tastes, from cheese and chillies to chocolate and champagne, with lots of mixed hampers too. There is also the option to build your own hamper which is rather fun.

You know it's all going to be beautifully presented and of the highest quality.  I have a few hampers, but this is the nicest wicker basket I've seen. It screams quality. My mother was very pleased to be given this one. It's now storing Cooper's toys and looks rather splendid on top of her wooden wardrobe.

Now before you go, I would like to remind you that I have some hampers to giveaway in my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Bonanza, so do take the time to enter.

Disclosure: John Lewis sent me a hamper to review. I was not expected to write a positive review and any opinions expressed are my own.


  1. Hampers are just wonderful aren't they, whether they are bought or homemade.... I love them. These look lovely :-)

    1. They are a good idea and I love the fact that John Lewis have a kit to make your own. Makes it so much easier and more professional looking.

  2. I love hampers I think they make great gifts. I won one in a raffle a few years ago the basket makes a great storage device for toys! :)
