What will Christmas be without festive hampers? They make excellent gifts and are wonderful to have around. Here are some of our favourite hampers this year.
Berry Bros & Rudd always have fantastic hampers of food and drink or a mixture of both ranging from as little as £35 up to £500 which makes choosing just one really difficult. We love the Classic Hamper because it’s a classic, has a bit of everything and is very reasonably priced.
The Best of British Hamper celebrates the impressive progress of English winemaking as well as selected treats from a range of fine British purveyors.
