That time of year is rolling round, all of the cheesy adverts are on the telly again; and we are all searching for the perfect Christmas tree. Rather than just sending a few cards to your loved ones, why not show them how much you care with a wonderful Christmas hamper? If you think this is a great idea, but aren’t too sure what to put in your hamper, then read on. Here are some of our top tips to making the perfect Christmas hamper.
Cheese is an essential addition to any Christmas hamper. In fact, the festive season could be the cheesiest time of the year. You can choose between many different varieties but there are some that shouldn’t be overlooked. You should try and include some goat’s cheese, a lovely piece of brie and also some blue cheese.
Crackers are essential, this may seem like an obvious one, but some people forget to put them into their hamper. You simply cannot eat all of that lovely cheese without some form of cracker, so don’t forget them. If you do then your loved ones will just have to gnaw at lumps of cheese or they may have to go out and buy their own crackers, which isn’t the end of the world, but it is nice if you supply the crackers and the cheese.
My favourite parts of the Christmas hamper are most certainly the jams and chutneys. You can enjoy these for months to come as hopefully they won’t be munched down over the Christmas period along with all of your cheese. So go out and buy some wonderful chutneys, or, if you are confident in your cooking ability, make your own. There are very few things as rewarding as teh feeling you get after you have made a jar of your very own chutney.
Your Christmas hamper would not be complete without a traditional Christmas pudding. Now, if you were to make your own Christmas pud then it would make your hamper seem even more personalised. But, if you have spent all of your time making chutneys and jams, then you will be forgiven for buying a pudding.
You simply cannot send your loved ones a Christmas hamper without there being a lovely bottle of something. You could include a delicious red wine or a crisp white, or, if you want to go all of the way you could also include a delicious bottle of champagne.
Now, it is time for the meat. The greatest hampers of all will include a delicious Christmas turkey and maybe even some lovely ham and beef. The meat is not an essential part of a hamper, but if you are to include it, your hamper will be greatly appreciated.
So there you have it, a wonderful selection of things to include in your Christmas hamper. If you are making your own then good luck to you my friend. And if you are the lucky person on the receiving end of a Christmas hamper then all I can say is ENJOY!
