Unique and Unusual Hamper Ideas

Think gift hampers are all fruit baskets and bottles of Champagne? We might be big fans of classic luxury gifts, but we also love to create unique hampers and gifts that offer something a little different to their recipients. To give you a little out-of-the-basket gift inspiration, we’ve put together some of our favourite unusual hamper ideas, featuring stout instead of sparkling and fruit that only comes in muffin form.

Unique hamper ideas for a sweet tooth

Looking to treat a sugar fiend? We’ve got lots of gift options that go beyond your classic candy bouquet. Chocolates might be a go-to for gifting, but you can put your own spin on it with our personalised options. Our Personalised Variety Chocolate Tasting Experience comes in two different varieties – a ganache selection or gourmet bars, and both offer you the chance to add your own message to the lid. Treat the chocoholic in your life to a mix of raspberry, honeycomb, Eton mess, cookies and cream and fruit and nut bars or choose to include luxury ganache chocolates in decorative designs.

If you’re looking for an alternative way to serve up a sugar fix, try the Fresh Muffin Share Basket. Our basket comes with delectable double chocolate, blueberry and raspberry flavours to satisfy every mood. The large basket contains 24 muffins, making it a great gift to take into the office or share with the whole family.

Unique hamper ideas with savoury flavours

Hampers might typically be associated with cocoa and Champers, but we’ve also got some unique hamper gifts that’ll satisfy those friends who would take cheese over chocolate any day. Our Ginger Beer Man Crate & Snack Selection Tray combines alcoholic ginger beer with some of our favourite savoury snacks, including nuts, pork crackling, pâte, crackers and cheese.

If you’re looking for something that feels fancy, our Badminton with White Wine has everything you need for a posh picnic or sophisticated snack tray. Grapes, apples and tomatoes are paired with cheeses, chutney, houmous and salmon. The basket also contains a selection of crostini and crips as well as some of our favourite biscuits and chocolates to polish it off.

If you’re stuck somewhere between sweet and savoury and want a gift hamper that covers both, try the Best of British Gift Tower that steps outside the box with a patriotic theme. We’ve gathered together the finest foods from UK suppliers, from Welsh cheddar to Old English chutney. Shortbreads, marmalades, slab cake and fudge are among the brilliantly British treats packed into this gift basket, along with, of course, a Union Jack English Breakfast Tea.

Unusual pamper hampers

If the breakfast tea caught your eye and you’re looking for a hamper for someone who deserves a lazy morning and a perfectly prepared cuppa, try the Breakfast Tray Gift Set. A diversion from the traditional afternoon tea hamper, this basket celebrates the most important meal of the day instead, with everything they need for a delicious breakfast in bed. Honey granola, croissants, muffins and spreads are paired with a selection of juices, tea and coffee.

Of course, pampering doesn’t have to be limited to your foodie friends. If you want a unique hamper to treat someone that’s more inclined to treat themselves to a quiet night in than a big dinner, check out our Perfect Pamper Gift Tower. This bath and beauty hamper is filled with little luxuries from a scented candle to a detox brush and massager to body butter and bath brûlée.

And no-one deserves a little pampering more than a new mum. Our unique baby hampers combine something for baby with a little something for mum – such as our Little Lamb with Prosecco & Chocolates Hamper. Mum’s favourites are presented alongside rompers, cuddly toys and more.

Unusual alcoholic hampers

If you’re shopping for a friend who’s not that into fizz, we’ve got plenty of alcoholic hampers that cater to different tastes. Our Housewarming Five Bottle Guinness Selection is perfect for a staunch stout drinker and it comes with a “Congratulations” balloon that works for any occasion (including congratulating them on receiving a hamper full of Guinness).

For the friends who are more into gin than Guinness, we’ve also got a full range of luxury gin and tonic hampers. Try the Classic Gin & Tonic Lover’s Hamper for everything they need to make their favourite drink plus some sweet snacks and even a matching scented candle!

DIY your own utterly unique hamper

Still looking for the perfect, one-of-a-kind hamper for that special someone? You can make sure yours is entirely unique by building it yourself. Our custom hamper option allows you to pick everything from the basket to all its contents to a personalised gift message to send with it. Select from our full range of baskets, trays and boxes and add as much as you like. You can choose their favourite chocolates and cheeses or even add meats and vegetables, along with soft and alcoholic drinks. There’s the option to add non-food items, too, such as pampering or baby items, and you can even add in personalised products to make it extra individual.

And don’t forget, all our hampers come with the option to customise them with extra add-ons, such as gift plaques or balloons. Have a browse of the full range to find your perfect match.
