Looking for a thoughtful gift for a foodie in your life? Christmas hampers are an excellent present for food lovers or drink connoisseurs. They also make great activities too - with baking sets, gingerbread house kits, and afternoon-tea picnic baskets.
If there is one thing M&S always deliver on its luxury. All of these hampers are high-quality, carefully curated and have beautiful presentations. Plus, most of the hampers we have selected either come with a wicker basket or reusable jute bag to reuse for future picnics or hampers.
With that in mind, here are our picks from this year’s amazing range of Marks and Spencer's Christmas hampers, which you can send right to your loved one's doorstep - or directly to yours.
They are selling out fast, so be sure to pick up your favourite before its gone. And if you miss the delivery date there is always your New Year's Eve food plans to keep in mind.

Are Christmas hampers worth the money?
It depends on what you get in them as some hampers are typically good value for what you pay for, but with others, it would be cheaper to buy bits individually and for you to make yourself.
It is always worth working out the total cost of the contents of the hamper you are considering. One thing to note is that with a hamper, you sometimes get a wicker basket too, which can be reused for picnics or storage - which makes it worthwhile.
