How awesome is it when someone makes the time and effort to make you a personalised food present? If you have never received one you are seriously missing out. Make someone’s day by putting together a hamper full of goodies especially for them. Here are some tips about how to make a hamper that will have them smiling.


Personalise it:

It is exceptionally easy to personalise a hamper. Find out what it is that the person you are giving it to especially loves and cater to that love. If they like Mexican food, give it a Mexican vibe. Fill it with tortillas and chillies. You can even decorate it with a Mexican theme. If you are looking for unusual food gifts click here.

Put a Little Bit of You into It:

Making a Hamper is a very personal thing to do. You can either buy goodies to put into it or you can make things yourself. When you make your own contents you are sharing even more of yourself with the recipient. This will not go unnoticed and will be certain to be remembered as a special gift. Homemade cakes and biscuits, jams or pickles can easily be incorporated into a home-made hamper. Jars containing popcorn or home-made granola go down just as well, Let your imagination fly and you will enjoy making the hamper just as much as the person you give it to enjoys opening it.

Get Creative:

Making something like a hamper should be a fun experience. It is sometimes a nice idea to involve people in it. Make it a joint effort if you are making one for your Gran. Get the family and kids together and turn it into an afternoon of play and design. Get the kids to bake goodies or draw pictures to go into it. There are all sorts of things that you can do to make a hamper a special gift for a special person. It does not have to cost you a small fortune to give a hamper as a present. Just give a bit of time and thought. Wrap it up and fill it with confetti, all these things can be keepsakes.

There is something wonderfully warming about giving someone a hamper to open. I sometimes think that it is just as nice to be the person giving it as it is to be on the receiving end. It is like giving multiple gifts for them to enjoy.
