The Best Luxury Hampers for Stress-Free Gifting

Feature: Long Read
Words by Bridie Newman

What's your favourite food from the Food Halls? Can't pick just one? Well, imagine having them all packaged up neatly in a full-to-bursting hamper that not only looks impressive, but hits all the right tasting notes too. Whether it’s handmade, seasonal condiments and delightfully moreish Belgian chocolates or specially selected wines and bubbly, they are guaranteed to become non-negotiables in your cupboard.

 

Our expertly curated hampers also make the perfect gifts because, let’s face it, every celebration should start with a plentiful (read, excess) supply of gourmet food. For the person who says they don’t need anything, see our Hampers for Every Occasion – ideal for birthdays, engagement celebrations and more. Surprise those with a sweet-tooth (we’re looking at you, grandma) with our Confectionary and Chocolate Hampers or elevate the wine-lovers cellar without having to know your grapes with our Wine Hampers. Celebrating the Year of the Wood Dragon? Discover our Spring Festival Hampers. And when it comes to the most romantic day of the year, choosing the perfect gift just got easier with our Valentine’s Day Hampers.

Spring Festival Hampers

Not sure where to start when it comes to Spring Festival gifts? Mark the new year with generosity and get them an abundant hamper. Both include the silky Jasmine Tea, made up of fragrant Sri Lankan green tea and jasmine buds. And the bestselling confectionery within – from salted caramel brownie bars to West Country clotted cream fudge – will see the lucky recipient through the celebrations. 

Valentine’s Day Hampers

If the way to their heart is through their stomach, get them the mic-drop of all Valentine’s Day gifts. Made for sharing, our hampers are filled with all the ingredients for a memorable day. Fussy eaters, fear not, we have yet to meet anyone who can resist our chocolate-coated raspberries.

Bestselling Hampers for Every Occasion

A hamper makes the perfect gift all year round. Let’s face it – nothing says ‘I love you’ like a basket full of gourmet food. Think picnics in the summer, family feasts in the winter and everything in between. Baby showers, weddings, birthdays – we have every moment covered, as well as hampers to say congratulations, alcohol-free hampers and more.

Roasted and packaged in-house at the Roastery & Bake Hall, our signature Knightsbridge blend is made from 100 per cent arabica beans for notes of caramel, roasted nuts and chocolate.

Confectionary and Chocolate Hampers

If they have a penchant for cosy, decadently sugary treats, a premium chocolate or confectionary hamper will always go down a treat. Think melt-in-the-mouth clotted cream fudge, giant fizzy sour strawberries, chocolate pretzel bites and single-estate dark chocolate. Is your stomach rumbling yet?

The crunch of the hand-roasted almonds, the creaminess of the thick chocolate-hazelnut praline coating – it’s no surprise our Praline Almonds are a bestseller all year round. 

Wine Hampers

Wine-lover, party host, that hard-to-buy-for friend – give them everything they need to raise a toast to the occasion with a wine and spirits hamper. Here’s to hoping the lucky recipient opens a bottle while you’re visiting. 

The Harrods New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc 2022, produced at Nautilus Estate in Marlborough, has distinct aromas of passionfruit, lemon and ripe grapefruit. The palate introduces fresh and zesty notes with a mouth-watering intensity and a clean, crisp finish. 

 

History of Hampers

 

Did you know that Harrods has been selling hampers since around 1850? It was during the Victorian era that Christmas hampers became popular presents, with families in particular gifting them to their employees.

 

Back then, a Harrods hamper offered a choice of turkey, goose, or ham, plus a bottle of port, tea and a pound of butter and tobacco. Not to be sniffed at, but a box of crumbly all-butter mince pies certainly wouldn't go amiss.

Corporate Hampers

Whether you’re celebrating successes or simply showing appreciation, our corporate gifting team is on hand to provide a fantastic breadth of ideas and personalisation options to suit all budgets and briefs. To order, give us a call on +44(0)20 7225 5994 or email [email protected].
