I love shopping, and I love a bargain. I have a cupboard in my home full of little gifts that I pick up throughout the year, ready for Christmas. At Christmas I create hamper gifts for people with all of the bits that I have collected.

What I love about creating hamper gifts is that you can make them to suit varying budgets. You can create a theme. And I think it makes a really thoughtful gift.

These are a few ideas for hamper gifts that you can easily put together yourself.

Pamper Hamper Gifts

These pamper hamper’s are easy to put together because you can pick up bits from so many places and can really create them to suit any budget. Who wouldn’t love a box of treats to indulge themselves in.

Date Night Hamper Ideas

These are a great gift for couples, and you can add a voucher for your babysitting services too! I love these Simply Cook kits. You can buy a pack of four different meal kits for £10. Each kit contains a recipe card and the herbs and spices needed to make that meal. I often order a box and split it by 4 recipients making it a £2.50 bargain. There’s lots of bits you can add to make it a really special gift.

Mindfulness Hamper Gifts

A mindfulness hamper can be a really thoughtful gift. You can make it personal by adding things related to their hobbies and things they love. It’s another one where it’s easy to pick up those things you see throughout the year when you think “That’s perfect for…” and put them aside for Christmas time.

  1. I love this idea!! You really can’t go wrong with a hamper and it means so much more when the person has gone to the effort to put it all together for you themselves xx

  2. I love making hampers at Christmas. I love the idea of using a wicker basket to display the gifts. Last year, I reused cardboard boxes and wrapped them in wrapping paper, which isn’t quite as nice!
