If you haven’t noticed from the barrage of adverts and the array of twinkling lights filling the windows of houses up and down the land, Christmas is well and truly coming.
This most magical time of the year comes part and parcel with spending time with friends and family you’ve not seen for ages (sometimes welcome), presents (welcome depending on what they contain), and delicious festive food and drink (always welcome, yes, even you sprouts). And it wouldn’t be Christmas time without indulging in some of the treats from the finer end of the spectrum. One of the very best gifts you can give has always been a good old Xmas hamper containing the sorts of mouthwatering luxury food and drink that December demands.
Here we bring two of the very best Christmas hampers on the market that’ll bowl over any loved one on the receiving end of the gift, that are also perfect to buy for yourself to make this yuletide extra special.
If you like your hampers with a royal seal of approval, look no further than Highgrove. Prince Charles’ distinguished brand has a host of high-class offerings filled with edible treats. We’ve plumped for the traditional hamper that contains a selection of their finest food products made exclusively for Highgrove, all of which showcase their traditional methods of production and authentic homemade tastes.
Among the contents are a Highgrove Organic Christmas Pudding crammed with succulent dried fruits and infused with brandy along with luxury Brandy Butter, ready to pour over the top. Melt-in-the-mouth shortbread, Prince of Wales Loose Tea Tin, a classic chutney made by hand in the UK, Peppermint Thins and some classic Christmas Fudge.
There’s also the Cuvée Champagne, made in France exclusively for Highgrove by Laurent-Perrier, perfect for popping open on the big day. All of this comes in a traditional wicker branded hamper with classic leather style straps, which comes in handy for picnics when the sunny season comes around. This one is a real festive winner.
