    Three Tricks to Spruce-Up Any Christmas Hamper

    bb_two_bottle_delightWell planned Christmas hampers can go a long way – especially if they are loaded with a broad selection of tasty snacks and goodies to be enjoyed. If you’re thinking about buying gift baskets for your loved ones, then the chances are that you will be keen to avoid monotony to ensure that everyone in receipt of a hamper feels as special as possible.

    Thankfully, there are a variety of ways to spruce-up even the most mundane of hampers; many of which can be done before you checkout online. So, what can you do to ensure that your holiday hamper is as unique as it is appreciated this Christmas? Here’s a look at three particularly effective techniques to make sure that your chosen hamper ticks all of the right boxes!

    Get in touch with the online hamper making company

    The easiest way to have a gift basket put together is by ordering online. Although most companies will offer a variety of styles and aesthetics to choose from, there’s no better way to guarantee that your hamper is as unique as possible than by getting in touch with a member of the company. They will be more than happy to answer any questions, provide advice, or even cater to your specific requirements – so send them a quick email or give them a call and the results will soon speak for themselves.

    Take care of the delivery yourself

    Once your hamper has been ordered, you will have the option of choosing where you’d like it delivered. What better time to have the gift delivered to your address, where you can add your own modifications to the appearance, or even include a couple of your own goodies? Many people enjoy nothing more than ordering a finished hamper and then touching it up themselves, in the comfort of their own home. You could even order just before Christmas and then add tinsel and other decorative features, just in time for a personal delivery before the big day.

    Consider following a theme for your hamper

    Christmas time is full of rich reds, fresh greens and clean white shades – all of which help to contribute to the general atmosphere of the season. During this holiday period, it makes much more sense to go for a red or green-coloured gift basket and once the base colour has been chosen, you will be free to personalise the theme in any way that you like. Gold and silver look brilliant when paired with the traditional red and green theme and you could even go as far as to include products that feature these hues.

    These three techniques are guaranteed to add a little more enjoyment to any recipient’s day and the more effort that you put into the design and preparation of your hamper, the greater the result will be. When properly made, gift hampers can be an excellent present for people of all ages. The potential to personalise them to your recipients requirements is second to none, so why not take a look at the options that you have available and then put an order in right now? You’ll soon be in receipt of an appreciative phone call from a loved one hoping to shower you with good will!

  • Personalising a Baby Hamper

    Personalising a Baby Hamper

    Buying for a new born baby can be one of the most challenging things to do – and no matter whether the child is a boy or a girl, knowing what to buy can pose one of the biggest difficulties. Baby hampers can make the ideal gift for young children, but at this age most youngsters won’t have any idea that they’ve been gifted with a present. It makes much more sense to load a basket out with useful accessories that the parents can make the most of instead.

    Now, you might be thinking “what’s the point in buying one for a baby?” or “won’t the treats just go to waste?”

    That might be the case if you were to buy random goodies and treats from a local store and simply hand them over to the babies’ parents – but the same certainly can’t be said for a hamper.

    These specialised gifts can contain a variety of goodies that can be hand-picked by you. Rather than simply settling on one toy, a single packet of gluten-free biscuits, or other monotonous gifts; a hamper makes it easy to select from a variety of treats that both the baby and their parents can enjoy. So, how can you be sure to create a personalised hamper that ticks all of the right boxes?

    Babies and parents are two different recipients

    If there’s one thing that most parents will agree on, it’s that a combination of late nights and screaming children can sap energy without trouble. Although a baby gift basket will be intended for the new born; there’s really no harm in including a few tasty treats for adults to enjoy. Many people actually opt to add a bottle of alcohol or a box of chocolates for parents to enjoy – and with the option to include a range of healthy snacks and goodies for the baby, there’s no reason why all recipients couldn’t enjoy the effort.

    A personal message can go a very long way

    Not only is the personal message a great option to explain that the alcohol is intended for adult consumption, it’s also a fantastic way to show how much you care! Just a few lines of loving text will be more than sufficient - and if the parents decide to keep the hamper and your note for their child to see in the future, then your personalised message will mean even more.

    Colour schemes are well-worth thinking about

    It won’t make much sense to buy a blue-coloured hamper for a girl, or vice-versa a pink one for a boy. Fortunately, most online gift hamper making companies offer a variety of colour schemes to choose from. This can make it especially easy to pick a style that your recipients will appreciate and then move on to choosing the components. The first thing that the parents will see is the hamper’s external aesthetics, so what better way to show off your effort than by choosing packaging that will look fantastic, before presenting the internal goodies for parents and baby to enjoy!

    Additional Elements that Can Be Added to a Gift Hamper

    bb_congratulations_hamperMany people consider choosing gift hampers to be as exciting as it can be enjoyable – and knowing that you will be personalising a stylish present from the ground up, before having it delivered to your recipient can be a wonderful experience. Even with all of the great options that hamper companies offer, it’s not uncommon for customers to want to get their hands on the basket and add a little more personality, before delivering it to a loved one.

    Many online hamper makers actively encourage this – after all, there’s only so much choice a company can offer. The real treats are those that are personal and well thought-out. So, if you’re keen to give someone a present they genuinely won’t forget, here are a few tips to help you to add the most effective additions!

    Encouraging the festivities

    Christmas hampers can always stand to benefit from the addition of tinsel, baubles and other accessories that simply emanate a festive atmosphere. By opting to have the hamper delivered to your address where you can add your own holiday-elements, you’ll be creating a truly personalised present that will instantly emanate the feeling of good-will and joy that the holiday season is so well-known for.

    Chocolates and Easter go hand in hand

    If you’re picking a traditional Easter gift basket, then you will undoubtedly want to make sure that there’s plenty of chocolate to go around. Fortunately, most hamper making brands will offer an amazing assortment of chocolates and treats, so picking the best of them can be very easy. If you decide that you want more added, you could always email the maker before finalising the payment, or you could opt for a larger hamper to cater to more goodies. The final option would be to have the gift sent directly to you, where you can add your own chocolates (or switch them for the luxurious ones that came with the basket itself!)

    Adding accessories to a baby hamper

    Baby hampers will often be filled with dummies, gluten-free products and an assortment of other tasty treats - or even cuddly toys. Rather than having everything packaged inside, why not consider requesting that the hamper company tie the dummies to the side of the hamper in an attractive fashion, or perhaps they could even fasten a teddy to the top of the packaging to instantly greet an excited child?

    The options really are endless and whether you’re hoping to add a few bows and ribbons to your basket, if you’d prefer to place a few attractive stickers on various products, or if you’d like to add your own card – the potential to customise your gift afforded by gift hampers can be very enjoyable to experience, so make the most of it. Your recipient will certainly appreciate the gesture.
