Christmas Hampers from Interflora

Christmas Star Hamper - £100Eat, drink and be merry – five words that sum up Christmas fantastically, capturing at least a small part of what the Christmas holiday is about.

Our Christmas hampers shop is now open and we have invited, Laura James a professional journalist and food writer to tell us what she thinks of our Christmas gift hampers collection for 2009…..

Gone are the days when a Christmas hamper contained a box of limp biscuits and a strange flavoured chutney nobody likes.

Tower of Christmas Treats - £80
Now you’re more likely to find something for everyone, whether they’re a fan of designer shoes, cupcakes, nostalgia sweets or more traditional festive goodies.

Hampers are to Christmas what Victoria Beckham is to heels and it’s always a thrill to receive one. Delving in to discover what goodies lie inside is huge fun and always a surprise.

Top of my wish list is Interflora’s Rich Plum Pamper Gift Hamper, full of blissful beauty products and guaranteed to relax anyone frazzled by Christmas cooking.
Rich Plum Pamper Gift - £24.00

I’m also completely in love with the Sweet Memories Gift Box, which is full of sweets I haven’t eaten since I stopped being given double detention. Milk bottles and shrimps are among the dizzyingly sweet confections – if you’re like me, one sniff will take you straight back to childhood.
Sweet Memories - £19.99

On my present list for my grander friends is the Duchy Originals Organic Gift Basket. It’s packed in a proper, traditional wicker hamper. It is full of delicious treats, including hand-made preserves and honeys. Sending someone this hamper will make someone very happy indeed.
Dutchy Originals Hamper -£60.00

There’s even a hamper that will appeal to the most rugged of men. The Outdoors Essential Backpack contains everything you need for a fun day out, including tea, coffee, a flask, mugs and spoons and even lots of yummy chocolate.
Outdoor Essentials Backpack - £49.99

As well as gift hampers, Interflora has a range of hampers bursting with Christmas foods. They’re perfect for getting you into the Christmas spirit. I’m going to be sending them to everyone I wish I could spend Christmas Day with and I’m seriously hoping that someone will send me the Giant Chocolate Cracker.
Giant Chocolate Cracker - £19.99

If you’re looking to make Christmas morning special for your partner, then a good start would be the Luxury Breakfast Tray. It has everything you need for a truly blissful breakfast, including a bottle of Buck’s Fizz and delicious Scottish smoked salmon.
Luxury Breakfast Tray - £29.99

I always find people are genuinely delighted to receive a Christmas hamper. And that’s lovely because there’s nothing more satisfying than giving a gift that is well received. I still haven’t worn the nylon bed jacket someone who doesn’t know me very well thought I would like last Christmas!
