Summer has come and gone, and, although we’re still only just into the autumn season, Christmas is fast approaching. This means that the time to think of great gift ideas for the one you love is coming into view, but there is no urgent need to fret, as there is still two months left for you to buy or even make your loved ones a present.
With that in mind, what would make the perfect gift for your significant other? If you’re unsure whether one or two gifts will be enough to show them how much you care, then a gift basket jam-packed with goodies could be just the thing.
As far as luxury christmas hamper ideas like those on the Interflora site, you could buy a number of gifts to add variety to your own hamper such as a pearl earrings, a bracelet, exquisite cheeses and chocolates and even concert tickets to see her favourite play or band.
While it’s perfectly possible to order a hamper online and tell them what you want added to it, taking the time to customise it yourself to make it more to a loved ones’ personal taste will show will definitely show them how much they are appreciated. To make a Christmas hamper, here’s what you could do:
- Buy gifts such as Christmas candles, chocolates and perfume and work out how you want them to be arranged.
- Most hampers are simply made of a straw basket which has been covered with beautiful fabric on the inside, but you could just as easily use a box covered with felt. All you need is a shoebox and enough felt to cover it and a glue gun to stick it all together.
- Then, arrange your gifts tastefully, and wrap up for them to open when Christmas day arrives.
One of the best things about buying a hamper for Christmas or any other special occasion is that you can be creative. You could give them a theme, base it on food, toiletries or flowers and even give it a personalised message to convey your feelings for whoever the hamper is for.
