Does anyone make their own Christmas hamper as a gift and if so what do you put in it ?

It is difficult choosing a gift for my sons and their wives so nearly every year I make them up a luxury hamper of goodies. I would sooner put 6 -12 good things in than 2 dozen cheap things they can get any time, so it usually consists of:

Bottle of wine, bottle of something like Baileys, shortbread tin, biscuit tin, box of chocs, choc coated nuts, fruit in alcohol, and so on.

My friend is gluten intolerant so I make a hamper of frivolous things that she would never buy. Her face is a picture, worth all the trailing around the shops

Yes because the ones you buy look half empty and over priced. What you put in is just tailored towards the person/people it has been created for

My Granddaughter will only be 3 months old this year so I have done a baby hamper containing lots of baby products that her Mum probably wouldn't buy, I have just been picking them up when they have been on offer.

Yes I’ve done food ones and pamper ones.. i tailor them to the person that’s receiving them, but general idea of food is chocolate, biscuits, tea or coffee, fancy crisps, chutney or jams... pamper ones I put hand creams, lip balms, nail files, bubble bath, socks, candles, body lotion...
