Prestige Hampers, the perfect gift

Hands up if you love a hamper.  For me there is no better gift than a hamper be it a food one, beauty one or a craft one.  If you’re stuck for ideas for someone or need to buy a gift for that annoying person who has everything you can guarantee that a hamper will put a smile on the most difficult persons face.

When the Cheese and Wine basket (£29.99) was delivered to my door I couldn’t have been happier, Red wine and cheese are one of my favourite things and I really couldn’t wait to get stuck in.  What really surprised me was that the items weren’t just in a cardboard box with a bit of shredded paper, they were in a proper wooden basket with lining and a movable handle which is something that can be reused if you’re making up a hamper as a gift or can be used as a storage basket.  I’m actually going to use mine to house two hyacinth plants and give it to someone as a gift at Christmas.

The basket contained the following items:

Wendsleydale with Cranberries 100g
Waxed Cheese with Red Wine and Chilli 100g
Waxed Cheese Double Gloucester 100g
Louis Filipe Cabernet Sauvignon 37.5cl
Beetroot and Orange Chutney by Mrs Bridges 130g
Walkers Highland Oatcakes 280g

Cheese doesn’t last long in my home that’s for sure but if you’re not a glutton like me you will be pleased to know that the items in my basket had really good shelf lives and the cheese best before date wasn’t until January and February 2018.  I’m not a huge fan of oatcakes I’ll be completely honest but I found that when topped with the cheese and chutney the Walkers ones were not as dry as oatcakes I’ve had in the past.

You can see the items in more details in my video below.
