If you need a last minute present or two to be delivered to special people who can’t be with you in Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford this Christmas a hamper could be perfect. It is indeed the season for eating lots of good food and drinking lots of good drink, so there's no better way to go about celebrating that than by buying a hamper. Most come all packaged up and ready to be delivered directly to any address.

Of course when it comes to Christmas hampers, it doesn’t get much more sophisticated than one from Fortnum & Mason. The department store has hampers with four-figure price tags, even the least expensive features some excellent additions to your main Christmas dinner, as well as some goodies to treat you and your guests to throughout the day such as Marc de Champagne truffles, breakfast blend tea and Christmas spiced biscuits.
Harrods’ hampers go up to £5,000 but you don’t need to spend that much to get a special gift. It’s a real treat for family and friends living abroad who are missing the British classics, plus the Harrods hamper can later double-up as a side table after they’ve finished the contents.
