Christmas Hampers In Australia – The Good The Bad The Ugly

Christmas Hampers in Australia – They’re Not All Created Equal!

Christmas hampers Australia

Most people love receiving a hamper at Christmas time, bursting with festive goodies. But unbeknownst to many gift givers, not all Christmas hampers in Australia are made equal. Here are a few things you should consider when buying hampers.

Quality of contents

Superior hampers contain only quality contents. Look for hampers that include respected brands, top shelf produce and superior ingredients. Whether your hamper contains French champagne and Belgian chocolates, or a simple combination of crackers and nuts, skimping on quality turns your good intentions into a bad taste in the mouth.

Age of contents

How fresh are the ingredients in your store-bought food hamper? Department store hampers sit on the shelves for months, sometimes even years at a time. This means that by the time your recipient opens or uses their hamper the ingredients and contents inside may well be past their use by dates. Sadly, you’ll have thrown away your money – and they’ll soon be throwing away their hamper!

Variety

A good quality hamper will offer variety in its contents. Gourmet hampers usually get the right balance of sweet and savoury, with something for everyone. A ‘cheap’ hamper is cheap for a reason, with a minimal selection of items that may not be suited to your friend, family or client. For the sake of a couple of extra dollars, get the good stuff!

Presentation

Presentation is everything! Foodies start judging the moment they lay eyes on the packaging. If you are gifting a hamper to someone serious about food and the finer things in life, a cellophane wrapped basket just isn’t going to get their mouths watering. This is just another way gourmet hampers exceed the standards of run-of-the-mill hampers. Forgo the cheap packaging and step it up with a luxurious boxed hamper. It will be a first impression that lasts!

 

Last minute gifts don’t have to look impersonal. Corporate gifts don’t have to be pens! Most importantly, you can get an elegant present for everyone you know with no stress and no fuss. Gourmet hampers are 100% guaranteed to impress.
Make your list and check it twice because department store hampers are not nice! Australian Gourmet Gifts has countless options, with free delivery for Christmas hampers in Australia, including a personalised message for your recipient.

If you need affordable gifts for corporate clients or last minute gifts for friends, visit Australian Gourmet Gifts for the highest quality Christmas hampers Australia has to offer!

Anniversary hampers

Your anniversary is coming up, what are you doing to celebrate? Have you considered an anniversary hamper, delivered to your door by Australian Gourmet Gifts? It’s the ultimate ‘take away’ to enjoy in any romantic location you choose. This year, why not skip the expensive restaurants and indulge in a feast of gourmet treats by the beach or under the stars?

Why an anniversary hamper?

You’ve heard of Christmas hampers, or packs of treats offered as a birthday gift, but you may not have considered an anniversary hamper. If you think about it, though, anniversary hampers tick a lot of boxes!
A hamper can include everything from delicious nibbles to fine wines, meaning you don’t need to think about anything other than where you are going to enjoy it.
Hampers from Australian Gourmet Gifts include a nice bottle or two of red, white or sparkling wine, or beer if you choose; always a winner to celebrate an anniversary. Couple that with some of the finest quality Australian and international gourmet edibles and you’re in for a real treat.

Take your anniversary hamper wherever you choose

It’s lovely to book a restaurant for your anniversary dinner – but it’s not all that original, is it? With an anniversary hamper, you can take your celebration with you to a location that’s meaningful to the two of you – or to somewhere you’ve never been before.
Take your beautifully presented box of treats to the local park, for a lazy afternoon at the beach, or simply enjoy it at home with no effort or dishes. There’s no limit to your options!

Anniversary hampers for all budgets

Anniversary hampers are not ‘one size fits all’. With Australian Gourmet Gifts, you can try a little bit of luxury with the Gourmet Sensations Hamper, or truly splash out on a 7-Star Executive Hamper. The Executive model comes with all the frills including a bottle of Moet, Bin 28 Penfolds Shiraz, Riverland Sauv Blanc, a Jamie Oliver retro style cooler and mouthwatering edibles. This is a way to truly spoil your loved one!
No matter which anniversary hamper you choose, you’ll be choosing the perfect ingredients for a luxury picnic. Think about the finest milk and dark chocolates, rich jams, buttery shortbreads, nut platters, crisp biscotti and delectable chutneys. It’s like curating a perfect meal with nothing but the best!
