Christmas Gifting Hampers Ideas

Thursday 22 July 2021

When its comes to Christmas hampers the choice is endless and ever Tom, Dick and Harry is looking for that great gift to impress. 

After the last Christmas being cancelled I'm sure even more people will be thinking about making their lives as easy as possible. Thinking of a time before Covid, ordering the gift looking through the boxes in the Monica cupboard to find the unused wrapping paper and then queue at the post office. Royal mail do now offer a home collection which is great though.

So you have chosen that a hamper is the gift, but the next task is which hamper is going to suit the person receiving it. 

They might be the person who has the largest sweet tooth you know so theirs must contain ALL the chocolate, or maybe the foodie within the group would love a collection of ingredients that can create stand out meals at home.

But then you also have the person who just deserve it all with the year they have had and needs contains enough cans of cocktail to get a pirate drunk and then all the treat to cure the hungover

We also all know how difficult it can be when you don't know the person you been given for the secret santa or if you in charge of the company corporate gifting, a one stop shop is what your looking for.   

This is going to be the first year that 'On The Table' will be doing a hamper range and as I write this on the 21st July in a heat wave christmas is far from the mind of most, however, , the team is already out speaking to some great independent producer to include their products into new our gifting range. 

But we are also hoping to make your gifts even more special by connecting each with at NFT (non-fungible token) making the gifting experience even more unique

NFTs are "one-of-a-kind" assets in the digital world that can be bought and sold like any other piece of property, but they have no tangible form of their own.

Though our range hasn't been finalised we are going to take you through some of the interesting gifting ideas on the market today and the household favourites.
