What is a gift hamper?

What should I put in a Father's Day gift hamper?
Want to get your DIY on and fancy building up your own gift hamper for Father's Day? We have the best tips and things to think about for you here.
Start with your food and drink
The base of a hamper: food and drink. You'll want to pick up some luxury foods to nibble on and feel indulgent but also easy to eat. To avoid putting everything together, collect some things which are already prepared and packaged
Make sure not to buy anything that's going to melt or go off very fast. Chances are you'll want to put things in that are going to last.
If you're buying for a specific occasion, think about all of the food and drink which is in season. For Easter, chocolate eggs and prosecco goes down well. Whereas Christmas time, think about Christmas puds and mince pies. Right now, because we're buying a Father's Day gift hamper, you should tailor it to what your loved one really enjoys.
Sweet or savoury?
Who are you making or buying this hamper for? Do they prefer sweet or savoury foods? This will help you build a bigger and better hamper.
If they like sweets, think about all the indulgent treats you can get like chocolate, sweets, fudge, jam and pastries. When it comes to savouries, you can grab cheeses, crisps, crackers and chutneys.
If you can't decide, make an ultimate gift hamper and put both!
Think about your alcohol
If your hamper receiver is a fan of alcohol it's always nice to include it to make the hamper extra special. Wines are a great shout but if your Dad likes a specific spirit, like gin or whiskey, why not put in smaller bottles but a bigger range so you can build a tasting set?
That being said, it isn't necessary to put in alcohol. You can always choose low-alcohol or alcohol-free alternatives. If they're a tea drinker, you could switch to a selection of their favourite teas. You can still make an amazing Father's Day gift hamper filled with other treats that are just as good.
Choose things you know they're going to like
At the end of the day, you're making up a Father's Day gift hamper to buy for someone you love and you're going to know them best. Whether it's your partner, Dad or Grandad, just think about what they really like and that's what will make the best hamper for them.
