How to create a gift hamper suitable for diabetics

If you’re thinking about doing something extra special for your friends and family this Christmas, then personalized gift hampers are a great idea.

There is something wonderful about receiving a gift that you know has been put together with care and attention – just for you.

Food, after all, is an incredibly personal thing.

Think back to a memorable time with family and friends and it is likely to have involved eating at some point.

Food draws out the best conversations. It connects us though nourishment and the caring hands that deliver it.

We show how much we care by the food we deliver. And it is exactly the same when putting together a Christmas gift hamper.

At we hand pack all our hampers to order. This means we can add, take away and suggest any collections of food – quickly and easily – so that the person receiving your gift will be as happy as they can be.

A red gift box from

So where to start?

First pick your basket or box. We have baskets that take between 8 and 40 items.

Fancy something different? How about this funky red gift box?

Next, think of the types of food the person you are buying for likes to eat. Is there a theme?

Do they have a sweet tooth? Or perhaps a soft spot for pasta sauces?

Want to add more cheese? No problem. Or a healthy drink? We can do that!

Finally, tell us what you’d like us to include as your personal message. It can be as long or as short as you like.

Maybe a traditional Christmas greeting?

The gift of love. The gift of peace. The gift of happiness. May all these be yours at Christmas

Or perhaps something really personal. Our recent favourite was,

For all the times I meant to make you breakfast in bed!

Whatever you decide, you can be sure your hamper is a wonderfully personal gift that will make someone happy.

And you can’t get much better than that.
