Borderfields’ top 10 Christmas hamper ideas

Fine foods and classic festive fare make for a wonderful Christmas hamper but if shop-bought, traditional luxury hampers aren’t your thing and you’re looking to add a more personal touch then look no further. We’ve come up with 10 foodie themed hamper ideas that are sure to impress friends and family this Christmas.

DIY hamper themes:

  1. Family friendly – Why not include a ‘cooking with kids’ cook book and maybe an apron or two?
  2. Afternoon tea – Treat a loved one to a quintessentially British tradition of afternoon tea. Think jams, scones, cakes and a fine cup and saucer.
  3. Cake maker – Perfect for budding bakers and Mary Berry wannabes.  Include a range of baking ingredients such as vanilla essence, decorative icing kits and shape cutters.
  4. Confectionery – Know the ultimate chocoholic? Satisfy their cocoa cravings with a range of truffles, biscuits and cakes.
  5. Breakfast – If you have a friend who is a real morning person, why not help them start the day with a smile with a choice of fine cereals and delicious jams.
  6. Movie night – Perfect for film-lover friends. Throw in some popcorn, sweets and even a couple of your favourite festive films.
  7. Kitchen essentials – There are some ingredients everyone should have to hand in their kitchen cupboards from tinned tomatoes to cold pressed rapeseed oil. A perfect gift for students.
  8. Foreign speciality foods – Maybe you know a curry lover or someone who loves holidaying to Italy? Take inspiration and fill a hamper with spices, chutneys and rice or pasta, tomatoes and herbs.
  9. British and proud – Maybe your inspiration could come from a little closer to home and you could fill a hamper with home-grown locally produced goods.
  10. Happy and Healthy – Out with the cheeses and chocs and in with the quinoa and herbal teas for health conscious friends…with half the saturated fat of olive oil, why not throw in a bottle of Borderfields Cold Pressed Rapeseed oil too!
