View Full Version : What To Put In A Christmas Hamper ? ? ?
I want to make up a Christmas Hamper for DS1's best friends family. His Mum picks up DS1 3 times a week and takes him to school for us and will not take any money for it. So I thought this might be a nice way to get her back if you know what I mean.:devil6: :laughing:
The only thing is I don't know what to put in it. I was thinking of spending about $30 on doing one up, and I think that will include a choc Christmas stocking for her DS and a few cars for him and then the rest for the parents, but what?:detective: We don't know them well enough to know if they even like coffee, tea, hot choc, my goodness, what do I know about them.:rolleyes:
Any idea's would be great. And thanks in advance.
If you're going with a Christmas theme, put in some nuts (like cashews) and shortbread. Choc sultanas are also good!
Family block of chocolate
Couple of the nice little jars of marmalades/jams
Little biscuit platter shaped in a Christmas tree (all of the stores have them now)
Small serves of different cheeses & pack of water cracker biscuits.
Even if they may not necessarily like particular things in the hamper, having little bits & pieces of different types of foods are great to have in the pantry when people call around (as they do!) during the festive season - then they'll always have something nice/fresh to offer and something nice to serve it on!
I sometimes do hampers.
I usually put a couple of nice mugs or cups in them, a variety of fancy tea bags. A small jar of fancy coffee.
Some liquor chocolates, shortbread biscuits, christmas cake or pudding.
A couple of fancy wine glasses, with a bottle of wine. Chocolates, nuts etc.
All these idea's are great so far but please keep them coming ! ! !
:idea: :detective: :xmas: :wizard:
you can get minature champagine and wine bottles umm some chocies candles. im not sure everyone has mentioned the good stuff hahaha
I used to make up hampers as pressies for people. I used to include a decoration for each person (like a bauble), a bonbon each, a couple of toys for the children, a couple of mini bottles of alcohol (subtly enquire as to what they drink), shortbread, christmas pud or cake, fruit mince pies, mixed nuts, toasted marshmellows, chocchip cookies, and a calendar for the new year. I used to make all the food goodies and spice the mixed nuts and pop them into cellophane bags with nice ribbon around them.
I would suggest some yummy chocolates, perhaps some baileys minis if they like a celebration drink they are really cute.
the gourmet jelly bellys are good. some gourmet bbq marinades or sauces for the hot days ahead
a nice xmas decoration
i will keep tyring to think!!!
Just thought that I would give this thread another bump. I finished that hamper but now I need to do one for my In-Laws and my family. :devil6: :banghead:
Any more suggestions would be great ! ! !:thumbsup: :fingerscrossed:
You can do themed hampers (eg snack foods or hot drinks etc) or just food hampers
We do a Huge hamper that we raffle off for playgroup and this is what it has in it
Packet of custard powder
Instant gravy packets
4x Savory Biscuits (like water crackers and shapes)
2x Sweet Biscuits (like shortbreads or tim tams)
2x cool drink
fruit mince pies
Nice Chocies (like lindt)
Tins of Fruit
Teas and Coffee
Xmas Tea towels
Bottle of wine
and it all goes into a laundry basket and gets wrapped in cellophane
I made one up the other day for someone, and along with others items from previous suggestions used mini candy canes, wafer biscuits filled with the flavoured cream stuff, pretzels, different flavoured tea bags.
I think the baby champs are great (especially for around $4/bottle) :D
