Buying Christmas presents can be a right headache. You have to think about all the things your family loves to do, all their hobbies, and then consider what everyone else is buying them, and what your budget is, and how long delivery will take if you order online....

But fear not, there is an easy option. Choosing a loved one a Christmas hamper never fails to impress come Christmas morning.

There are loads to choose from these days, and they don't have to just feature marmalade and tea bags - although, to be honest, we love a good tea-themed hamper.

Check out our shortlist of the best Christmas hampers to buy in 2021, whatever your budget.

What is in a traditional Christmas hamper?

If you are buying a specific Christmas hamper, you will usually find the following inside:

• Christmas pudding

• Confectionary such as chocolates or sweets

• Biscuits

• Cheese

• Mince pies

• Preserves including jam and chutneys

• Wine or tea, coffee and hot chocolate

However as you'll see from our round-up above, there are so many different types of hampers available so you can really hone into someone's interests.

Are Christmas hampers good value?

This depends on what you get in them! Some hampers are generally good value for what you pay for but with others, it would be cheaper to buy bits individually yourself so it's always worth quickly working out the total cost of the contents of the hamper you are considering.

Don't forget the actual hamper itself too as many can be reused for picnics or storage.
