A food-filled hamper is sure to delight as a Christmas gift. Here’s how you can put one together to truly stand out
There are a million ways to a foodie’s heart and about a million ways it can go wrong. So how do you personalise a gift basket for someone around the holidays and leave little to chance?
Our suggestion is to fill a basket with a mix of things - sweet and savoury, premium and sure-shot favourites. Add some healthy or off-beat snacks along with little morsels of tradition so that there is something for everyone. Incorporate little personalised touches like a great Eggnog recipe, or things like Chestnuts that are not easily available but spell Christmas. If you’re short on time, don’t shy away from some professional help. Just make sure its well-presented and topped off with some Christmas decorations and a beautifully hand-written note.
Here is what we picked out for our gift hamper:
1. Quinoa puffs
2. Cranberry orange cookies
3. Dairy-free coconut chocolate spread
4. Salted pistachios
5. Milk chocolate bar
6. Dark chocolate coated almond bar
7. Raspberry preserve
8. Dark chocolate bar with cranberry
9. 90% dark chocolate bar
10. Sour cherry drops
12. Crispy beetroot chips
13. Sugarfree nut health bar
14. Strawberry wafflets
