Made in Oldstead 'The Oldstead hamper'

Best luxury produce hamper

For a unique gourmet experience, the Made in Oldstead Christmas hamper is a luxurious choice. The Christmas classics are all here, but have each been given an unusual spin: think sweet cicely hot chocolate, woodruff eggnog, apple mint fudge and root vegetable brownies. The jar of creamy chicken liver parfait was our highlight – spread liberally on toasted slices of the sourdough bread you'll also find tucked inside the heavy wicker basket. Smoked salmon, charcuterie, cheeses and a ham complete the savoury items. There are even four crackers to open, containing cans of wine plus a mini candle. A hamper to enjoy and explore on a cold winter night.

Macknade Ultimate Kent Foodie Hamper

Macknade hamper

Best regional hamper

We love this hamper as a great way of discovering independent, artisan brands. A deep dive into the Kent food scene, there's a wide range of sweet and savoury treats, plus drinks. Highlights for us were the large bottle of Owlet Kent pear juice, the spicy sweet chilli jam and the local lager. It's a great one for sharing as there's something for all tastes, and a lovely way to support local.

Belazu Luxury Hamper

Belazu hamper

It’s filled with Great Taste Award winning products, including luxury items such as white truffle olive oil, balsamic vinegar and saffron.
