How to create a good Christmas hamper

Luxury Scottish Christmas HamperA luxury hamper under the Christmas tree really does give you that magical feeling – and if you’ve added some personal touches to your gift you can feel truly smug.

Not only will you have the thought-factor sorted but, with Scottish Food Overseas on your side, you’re bound to have chosen really tasty goodies too.

The beauty of creating a Christmas hamper with us is that we hand pack all our hampers to order. Adding items to one of our themed hampers  or creating a unique hamper just for you is what we do – and with pleasure.

Here are our top tips for hamper success…

Fill it with treats

Traditional Scottish Foods Tunnocks Wafer or Tea Cake

If you’re creating your hamper for a Scot far away from home, we’ve got lots of traditional treats that will remind them of home – from haggis (including vegetarian haggis) to phenomenal Irn Bru. Tunnocks teacakes are great with a cup of tea, and you’ll never forget the orange and lemon spice of a clootie dumpling. Just like Maw used to make!

ChOatcakeseese please

If you’re making a hamper for a cheese lover – then treat them to some of the finest Scottish cheeses from Aaron, or a creamy wedge of Clawson Mature Dairy Stilton. Add in some oatcakes and some condiments like Tracklements Christmas Chutney and they’re sure to be in love.

A wee dram or a glass of fizz?

A bottle of wine or champagne in a Christmas hamper is almost Whiskycompulsory but you don’t have to stick with the standard. Scottish whisky is internationally renowned and a single malt or mix from our whisky collection is sure to impress. Ports and liqueurs work well after a festive feast – or try giving a Crabbies ginger wine to add a Christmassy touch.

Add some style

Christmas hampersOur beautifully crafted wicker baskets come in a range of sizes so you can choose the perfect gift presentation. Fancy something different? Our red boxes hold 12 items and look wonderful under the Christmas tree.

Once your hamper is packed we add shrink wrap to the basket, keeping the items safe during delivery.

A ribbon around the middle makes a nice finishing touch and will also keep those carefully positioned presents in place.
