The Wowcher Guide to Christmas Hampers


Santa baby, slip a hamper under the tree, from me.
It’s an awful good gift, for my mummy.
So hurry down the chimney tonight….

‘Hamper,’ from the old French word ‘hanepier’ translates to a ‘case for goblets’, but now refers to a delicious basket of goods given as a fashionable gift for a special occasion… and what better occasion to give a lovely bundle (or should we say, fun-dle) than Christmas?! What should you put in the hamper, you ask? Where should you get your hamper, you wonder? And what on earth are you going to put in a hamper for your man friend whose interests cannot be pinned or your crazy kids who will accept nothing less than treats but should really get a bag of coal? Well, as always, we’re here to lend a helping hamper hand with some great suggestions tailored for you! Plus, a little bit of a play on our favourite Christmas song…

First things first, the Luxury Christmas Hamper. For those of us with expensive tastes, we prefer everything to be a little more luxurious, no matter the cost. And with this deal, you can get all the luxury you need without the prices you’d expect! It’s the perfect gift for your loved one who enjoys indulging in homemade cranberry, orange, cinnamon shortbreads, chocolates, truffles, cakes, puddings and, for the cherry on top (or should we say grape?), wine! Now, we’ve heard on the grapes vine that wine is made from one of your five a day… so let’s have a hoot and drink some fruit!

Santa baby, slip a hamper under the tree, with wine,
It’s an awful good gift, it’s divine,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.


Christmas jumpers, Christmas crackers, Christmas pudding, Christmas presents… everything Christmasy seems a little bit more exciting, doesn’t it? We think so too and this Luxury Christmas Treats Hamper seems pretty darn sweet!

Think of all the deals I’ve missed,
Think of all the treats that I haven’t purchased,
This one would be so very good,
So I’ve put it all on my Christmas list…


We all know that there are some folk who are simply a bit trickier to shop for, and in our experience, it’s usually a man. And what do most men like the most? Steak. (Although, a lot of women love the stuff too!) That’s why we’re taking a break from all the cake and have decided to offer a hamper of… steak! The Donald Russell Gourmet Steak Hamper is not just any steak hamper, it’s an award-winning, twenty-piece gourmet steak hamper with meat deemed fit for the Queen!

Santa baby, a 20-piece steak box will do, from you
I’ll save up for it, dear; Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.


This next hamper is perfect for those of us who enjoy the finer things in life. With a surprise selection of some of your favourite foods plus some foods that are completely new to the market this Degustabox monthly food hamper is divine!

Santa baby, they want a box that’s full of a lot,
Like the Degustabox, Santa baby
So hurry down the chimney.


Last, but not least, we thought we would combine two hamper deals to make one almighty hamper combination! The first, the gift basket might not seem like the greatest food hamper ever, because there is no food in it. None yet! Combine it with your own creations for a personalised touch or get your hands on the retro sweet hamper. Pack your gift basket full of the best sweets from your childhood and this hamper will have the kids going wild over it. This one is our favourite!

Santa baby, forget to mention one little thing, a sweet
I don’t mean just one,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.
Hurry… tonight!
