Review: Hampergifts

Ok, so you may be sensing a bit of a trend on here recently with my reviews. They have mainly involved someone offering me some food related item to review and then you having to endure my photos of said food item which is of course delicious and makes you jealous.

Green boxed hamperWell unfortunately for you today is no different for you see I have a rather nice hamper from Hampergifts to share with you. Hampergifts do a wide range of Christmas hampers online along with many other types of hamper. They are an independent, family run company in the UK

The hamper I received was already open and part eaten by the time I got home from work. The lady of the manor having taken a fancy to the shortbread biscuits she’d spotted in the top. So you’re lucky that I actually had anything to photograph other than an empty hamper, although perhaps she may have left the wine given that she was home alone with the children!

Hamper contentsI like that the hampers aren’t all in the traditional wicker baskets which can feel a little twee at times. The box style container mine came in is a nice touch and works well given the contents and looks a little less extravagant.

We loved our hamper, the children helped us with eating the flapjack of course, but we kept the wine and chocolates for a little treat in the evening. I really like hampers as a gift, they’re perfect for someone you struggle to buy for because let’s face it everyone likes food and you can just choose contents that fit with their tastes.

BTW in case you were wondering the apples and apricots in a violet syrup go excellently with some vanilla ice cream.
