Christmas Hamper Gift Ideas
What does your family normally buy you for Christmas? While I know Christmas is about more than gifts, if you have young children the chances are that the gift buying falls to your husband, sometimes a scary prospect if he only ventures to the shops one day a year, or you buy your own gift (me!). If the quality of Christmas gifts has been a bit blah in the last few years (think dressing gowns, slippers and appliances) then it’s time to take a stand and ask for a great gift.
This year I’m recommending you put a gourmet food and wine (or champagne) hamper on your wish list. Not one of those department store hampers full of items you’ll never eat, but one with beautiful gourmet food that will definitely impress.
We are very excited to have partnered with Australian Gourmet Gifts to offer our Australian readers the chance to win a Luxury French Sparkling Hamper for Christmas. Australian Gourmet Gifts provide beautiful gourmet hampers that make beautiful gifts for all occasions, especially for Christmas. Some of my personal favourites include the Premium Red & White Wine Hamper and the Gourmet Connoisseur Hamper.
I was kindly gifted one of these hampers to review (it’s only fair – my kids review the toys and I get to review the French champagne!). If I was receiving that as a gift I would be very impressed. It arrived at my door in beautiful, elegant packaging with a lovely ribbon and card attached.
Inside, all beautifully presented, was a bottle of Charles Pelletier Blanc de Blances (French) Champagne along with a selection of gourmet foods including:
- Australian Country Gourmet – Sun Dried Tomato Pesto
- Australian Country Gourmet – Chardonnay and Sage Creamy Mustard
- Absolute Organic – Antipasto Organic Mixed Olives
- Koko Chocolat – Milk Chocolate Twist Wraps
- The Natural Nut Company – Dukkah
- Ital Choc Hazlenut Biscotti
- Australian Country Gourmet – Rich Chocolate Sauce
- The Natural Nut Company – Entertaining Nut Platter
I order to review the hamper properly, I sent the kids to a babysitter, invited over some friends and we had a mock Christmas lunch. The champagne didn’t last long, the food was delicious and I’m already trying to decide which hampers I’m buying as gifts.
If you want to avoid the shops this Christmas you can find the full range of Australian Gourmet Gift Hampers here. They offer free delivery, and if you are sending them as gifts they come with a beautiful card for your recipient.
