Hampers for celebrating the Jubilee

This year, we recognise the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, marking the 70th anniversary of accession of Queen Elizabeth II. To celebrate, the UK is being treated to 4-day weekend in early June. May’s Spring Bank Holiday has been shifted to Thursday June 2nd, while the Platinum Jubilee bank holiday will take place on Friday June 3rd. The sun will be out and spirits will be high, so what better way to mark the first ever Platinum Jubilee weekend than with an array of quintessentially British treats?

From tea and scones, to shortbread, wine and cheese, to pudding – there’s so many ways to bring some extra British flair to a truly British affair. It’s not often we get a four-day weekend with weather like this, so we want to help you make sure it’s a memorable one. Let’s explore a few British food hamper ideas to truly celebrate the Jubilee weekend in style.

Platinum Jubilee Hampers for Picnics

The weather should be fantastic over the long weekend, so why not celebrate with a luxury picnic with friends and family? For a perfect picnic under the sun, you’ll want a British hamper packed with refreshing, light bites that can handle the heat, along with some summery chilled drinks to see you into the evening.

A fruit basket is always a wise choice to keep you energised throughout the day, but if you’re looking for something particularly British for the Jubilee weekend, the Henley fitted picnic hamper is a great choice.

This hand-made willow picnic basket with integrated handles comes packed with everything you need for a glorious Jubilee picnic in the park. Premium smoked salmon, cheddar and brie, caramelised onion chutney, olives, grapes, apples, cherry tomatoes and more - this British food hamper offers an array of delectable bites that are well suited for sunny days out. Choose your tipple of choice, from champagne, prosecco, red, white or sparkling wine, or alcohol-free presses, and enjoy a truly majestic picnic this long weekend.

Gift Hampers for Jubilee Weekend

Many may choose to use the long weekend to celebrate a special occasion in their lives. Birthdays, anniversaries, housewarmings; the four-day weekend is sure to be a weekend full of celebrations for all kinds of milestones. The Platinum Jubilee is a once-in-a-lifetime event, so if you’re looking for a gift for someone special in your life, why not go for something on-theme?

Take our Best of British Gift Tower, for example. Inside this stately tower of elegant silver gift boxes, you’ll find a wide variety of distinctly British favourites. Enjoy a selection of divine local cheeses, like Organic Cotswold Brie from Simon Weaver and a waxed truckle of Vintage Mature Cheddar from Wainwright’s Choice, paired perfectly with All-British Cheddar Crackers from Grate Britain as well as Orange English Chutney with Cider and Classic Orange Marmalade from Cottage Delight. In addition, enjoy delectable Biggleswade Sweet Chilli crisps from Pipers Crisp Co., chilli & lime peanuts from Filbert’s, and fancy sweet & salty popcorn from Pop Notch. To further satisfy your sweet tooth, you’ll get cherry & almond slab cake with marzipan star & dusting, Lindor milk chocolate truffles, salted caramel fudge, and Cotswold luxury shortbread. Cap it off with some Keep Calm and Carry On Union Jack English Breakfast tea and you’ve got a truly British gift set that’s sure to bring joy to their big weekend.  

Of course, if you’d rather let them pick which brilliantly British hamper they want, a hamper gift voucher is always a great choice!

Jubilee Hampers for Large Gatherings

The long weekend is prime time for larger get-togethers with your loved ones, and if you’ll be hosting a bigger group, you’ll need a more substantial serving of food and drink to feed the masses. We’ve got plenty on offer, whether you’re looking for savoury snacks, sweet treats, premium alcohol or all of the above and more.

The Balmoral Feast hamper is a brilliant choice for big groups.

You’ll also enjoy late bottled vintage Port from Graham’s, and, for non-alcoholic beverages, bottles of blueberry sparkle, organic Sicilian lemonade, raspberry crush sparkling pressé, and of course, English breakfast tea and After Dinner coffee from Cartwright & Butler.

Scotch Reserve smoked salmon and a honey glazed ham joint lead a wide selection of savoury delights, as well as an assortment of luxury cheeses from blue stilton to caramelised red onion cheddar to local Cotswold brie. Real ale chutney, paprika chilli olives, rosemary focaccia bread thins and Karnataka black pepper & sea salt crisps round up a sumptuous serving of hors d’oeuvres and bites to satiate your guests throughout the party.

On the sweet side, enjoy an exquisite variety of almond-filled treats, from shortbread, to soft amaretti, to cantuccini, to cherry & almond loaf cake. Fine cut English Breakfast marmalade, black cherry preserve and strawberry preserve come courtesy of local favourites Cartwright & Butler. It won’t be a proper British celebration without luxury Glenfiddich mincemeat tarts, classic Christmas pudding, lemon sponge steamed pudding and mouth-watering panettone. All the while, chocolate lovers will be delighted by an assortment of Lindt truffles, a mint crisp chocolate selection box from Whitakers, and a salted caramel swirl chocolate tile from Cotswold Gourmet.

Romantic Hampers for the Long Weekend

This is a fantastic way to add a bit of extra excitement to a cosy day in with your loved one.
