How to Create the Perfect Gift Hamper
Gift hampers are always great to receive, packed full of treats that someone might not usually get for themselves. They are excellent gifts to give if the person you’re getting the present for hasn’t asked for any specific, or if you feel that they deserve to be spoiled with lots of little, gorgeous gifts all in one. Hampers are also brilliant for any occasion, whether that’s a birthday, Christmas, celebrating a new job, or just to thank someone for a favor they did for you. If you think you would like to send the gift of a hamper, here are some of the best things that you should include.
Food and Drink
Foodie hampers are very popular, and some tasty treats should always be included. If the person you’re creating the hamper for loves fine wines, select one or two bottles to put in there. Chutney’s, jams, and biscuits also make nice additions, as will some top-quality chocolates, like these holiday chocolate gifts for the festive season or other boxes more suited to the occasion you’re celebrating.
Home Spa Goodies
It’s always great to be pampered, but not everyone has the time or the money for regular spa trips. This is why it adding some home spa goodies into the gift hamper is always a nice touch. Facemasks, bath soaks and salts, or some luxury hair products can make someone feel refreshed and glamorous. Adding some scented candles or essential oils could also help them to add to the spa-vibe at home, and there are so many products out there to choose from that finding something for anyone’s taste is easier than you think.
What Are Their Hobbies?
All of the above are staples of any gift hamper, but for a perfect personal touch, you should think about including something that reflects the hobby of the person you’re creating it for. For example, if they are an avid reader, perhaps include a few books they have wanted to read or other titles they might be interested in. If they are movie fanatics, some posters of their favorite movies or some other merchandise could be a lovely touch. Arts and crafts set for those who like to indulge the creative side, or perhaps some plants for those who love gardening? Anything that will be useful and enjoyable to them in their free time will make wonderful, personal additions to any gift hamper.
Fun Games to Play
Card games, board games, etc., are other things you might want to put into your hamper. They always make good novelty gifts, and the receiver can use them to pass some time when they are bored or to help liven up the party as they can start a game with their guests. Whether it’s classics like Scrabble or Monopoly, or more modern favorites such as the risqué Card Against Humanity or the Meme Game, there are a lot of fun party games you can add to round off your perfect gift hamper.
Hampers will always be popular gifts, so if you want to treat someone you love to a few lovely treats, consider creating a hamper for the next occasion you have coming up.
