Best Birthday Hampers for 2022

Whether it’s for Mum, Dad, a partner, best friend, colleague, or otherwise, a hamper is a timeless, thoughtful birthday gift for just about anyone. Just as welcome for a 25th birthday as it would be at a 75th, a basket packed with treats that you know they’ll love is a great, simple gift idea that they’re sure to appreciate – but which hamper should you go for? The best hamper for your loved one will of course depend on their personal tastes, as well as how they’d want to spend their special day. Do they want a big day out? A relaxing day off? A dazzling big party? However they’re celebrating, you’re sure to find a birthday hamper idea that will make their big day all the more special across our range of luxury gifts, so let’s explore our top picks for 2022!

Birthday Breakfast in Bed Ideas

They deserve to feel truly loved from the moment they wake up ‘til bedtime – so make sure their birthday starts right by treating them to a wonderful breakfast in bed. Our Breakfast Tray Gift Set with Prosecco will bring so much joy to their birthday morning – and has enough delicious treats for you to enjoy too! Served on a brilliant open bamboo serving tray, they’ll enjoy a selection of tulip muffins, croissants, marmalade and preserve, tea, coffee, muesli, and juice, as well as a bottle of Zonin 1821 Prosecco Doc Spumante. This truly is the perfect way to start the day and show how much you care.

A Fresh Fruit & Muffin hamper is another great way to kickstart their big day. With a huge selection of fresh fruit alongside sumptuous muffins from Lizzie’s, presented in a hand-woven organic seagrass tray with a ‘Happy Birthday’ balloon, this is a great way to ensure their day starts with the vibrance and energy that any birthday should.

Birthday Hamper Ideas for a Day Out

If they’re lucky enough to be celebrating their birthday on a bright summer’s day, why not take them out for a sunny birthday picnic? We’ve got a massive variety of luxury picnic hampers for couples, families and larger groups, with carefully curated selections of picnic-perfect food and drink, as well as all the extras you might need like picnic cutlery and tableware, napkins, bottle openers, coolers, flasks, blankets and beyond. Find a picnic hamper that suits their tastes and surprise them with a glorious afternoon with friends and family under the sun. Whether it’s at the park, at the beach, in your garden or elsewhere, our classic picnic baskets are easy to pack, handle, tidy and keep for the next sunny birthday out.

Our Birthday Arundel Hamper with Red & White Wine is an excellent choice for picnics! On the savoury side, enjoy Farmhouse pork pâte and caramelised onion chutney from Cottage Delight, vintage mature cheddar from Wainwright’s Choice, organic Cotswold brie from Simon Weaver, and artisan cheddar crackers from Grate Britain. Satisfy your sweet-tooth with shortbread, jam, cherry & almond slab cake, chocolate truffles, and most importantly, a special ‘Happy Birthday’ salted caramel milk chocolate plaque. To drink, they’ll love a bottle of Chardonnay and a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from Casillero del Diablo.

Pamper Hampers and More, for an Indulgent Birthday In

Of course, if the weather isn’t on our side, or if they’d simply rather spend their birthday cosied up at home, we’ve got plenty of options for a simple-but-splendid day in, too.

The ultimate birthday hamper gift doesn’t have to be all food and drink – another great idea is to treat your loved one to a luxurious spa day from home with one of our many fantastic pamper hampers. Throughout the range, you’ll find delightful gift baskets packed with everything they’ll need to truly unwind on their special day, from bath bombs, shower gels, body lotions and hand soaps to soothing scented candles, calming teas, and bottles of bubbly to add that extra luxurious spark. Treat them to a day of pure bliss without even having to leave the house – our pamper hampers bring everything you want from a magnificent spa day right to their doorstep.

Our pamper hampers come in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit all styles. For a quainter choice, go for our Classic Pampering Set Gift Crate with Prosecco. This rustic-style wooden crate offers a Detox brush and massager, fresh linen glass candle, and a bath creamer, pink pamper soap and ‘In the Pink’ body lotion from Bomb Cosmetics, alongside a bottle of San Leo Brut Prosecco.

Our classic lidded willow baskets bring you great versatility, doubling as a timeless storage solution or a great companion for picnics and days out. The Birthday Ladies’ Gift Hamper with Italian Sparkling Rosé is a great choice if you’re looking for birthday hamper ideas for her. This classic picnic basket comes with a divine selection of chocolates from Lindt, Claire’s Handmade, Cuoco and more, as well as mouth-watering strawberry Bellini fudge and a bottle of Freixenet Italian Sparkling Rosé. To make it extra special, they’ll also get a ‘Happy Birthday!’  laser-engraved Imperial ‘Regency’ champagne flute! This is a great option on its own, or paired with a pamper hamper if you really want to go the extra mile for their big day.

For something truly grand, you could go for one our magnificent gift towers. The Perfect Pamper gift tower comes with soaps, bath creamer, body butter, a massager, nail brush, soft cotton flannel, candle, chocolates, and more, presented in a tower of three elegant gold and silver gift boxes.

If you’re searching for gift basket ideas for men's birthdays, go for the Birthday Man Crate & Snack Selection Tray. Packed with classic pub favourites for men, they’ll enjoy peanuts, crisps, pork scratchings, chocolate ginger biscuits, cherry & almond slab cake, and jelly babies! Then, choose between real ales, beer, Guinness, or cider to drink. Lastly, to make it extra personal, add your own special message to be engraved on the included pint glass!

Birthday Hamper Ideas for Hosting

Come evening, they may want to welcome some friends and family over to celebrate, and a good host should provide plenty of delicious food and drink to keep the guests happy! Help them make it happen with a dazzling birthday hamper packed with plenty of goodies to feed all. The Birthday Eaton Hamper offers a wide array of sweet and savoury treats, a special ‘Happy Birthday’ bold stars holographic balloon, and your choice of champagne, wine, beer, ale, cider, Guinness, or alcohol-free pressé.

For a bigger celebration, the Birthday Sandringham Hamper with Champagne is truly marvellous. Two bottles of wine, a bottle of Paul Langier Brut Champagne, premium smoked salmon from Severn & Wye, gourmet blue stilton, brie, and cheddar, and so much more make this stately hamper an outstanding choice for those that really want to celebrate in style.

Personalised Birthday Hamper Ideas

While you’ll find options to personalise several of the luxury hampers across our range with special birthday pint glasses, champagne flutes, boxes, balloons, chocolates, and more, you can show them just how well you know and love them with a completely bespoke, Create-Your-Own hamper that’s packed with all their absolute favourites. Our custom hamper service is so easy to use, and helps ensure you’re choosing a gift that really shows how much you care. Fill a hamper, basket, gift box or tray with a selection of premium treats, add your own special gift message and other finishing touches, and let us put together the ultimate birthday hamper that speaks to their tastes.

On the other hand, if you’re struggling to pick the best bits from our huge selection, you could always let them decide exactly what they want by gifting them a hamper gift voucher that can be spent on anything across our range – including our bespoke hamper service!
