If you are thinking about sending someone a nice food hamper and not sure what to send, this post is here to help. Hopefully, this will help you decide the best direction to go with your food hamper gift.
First thing to think about is the person you are sending it to. You know what they like and aren’t crazy about. If it helps, make a list of the foods and treats that you know they love. If you still aren’t sure, ask one of their friends, family members or a coworker. It’s a sneaky way to get the low down on what they love to eat and it’ll make your gift a cherished one.
On our website, we have loads of hamper choices and everything has been thought out already. All you have to do is choose one you like and go through checkout. But if you would like to create your own hamper, we have a section that’ll let you do just that. Just look for the create your own hamper button on the left hand margin and it will take you to the food and treat categories. Simply choose the foods and sweets you like and add them to your shopping cart. When you are done, it’ll show you the total and you can finalize your transaction quite easily. But what if this is your first time and you’re just not sure what foods go best with what?
If you are sending a sweet hamper, you might want to keep the items sweet related. Chocolates are always a popular choice. If you click on the category titles related to sweets, it’ll be pretty straight forward. But if you want to send a more savoury hamper, there’s a few things you might want to remember. If you want to send a nice mature cheddar, think about what goes well with cheddar. Here’s a hint: McKenzie’s oval albert savoury biscuits go great with any cheese. But that’s still not enough to make your hamper look great. Add a nice pate to your hamper. Everyone loves a tasty pate, and there are loads of great choices. I would also recommend adding a nice chutney to this tasty hamper. An oval albert biscuit with a slice of mature cheddar and a nice red onion marmalade or a beetroot and orange chutney is just awesome. So, now you’ve added a few foods that all compliment each other and the price of the hamper is still quite sensibly priced. Sometimes people like to add a few cheeses, or a couple of different oval albert biscuits to the hamper. Some like to add cheese straws with all of this, which also goes very well. You could even add a non alcoholic fruit juice that would make it even nicer for your recipient. Some might even add a bad of mint cremes as a little dessert. All are great choices and the more foods you add the nicer the gift becomes. If you are on a budget, just delete an item and it comes straight off the total immediately.
Well, I hope this post has given you some ideas of what you can add to a hamper gift to make it special. There really is no wrong way to make a hamper, but by adding items that compliment each other, your recipient benefits big time and will thank you over and over again. Hope you have fun making your own hamper and don’t forget to save us to your favourites.
