Smoked Salmon Hampers - The Health Benefits
When you think of a Gift Hamper, a healthy option might not be the first thing to spring to mind as we traditionally tend to think of lots of sweet treats and jars of preserves. However, if you have been on our website or follow us on social media, you will be aware that this is a very limited view on Gift Hampers. There are actually so many combinations and variations that it's hard to list them all.
When I think of our Healthy Gift Hampers I would immediately recommend our Fresh Fruit Baskets, or our Good Health gift range. It was only today when I was posting about #WellnessWednesday and ordering some new stock, that I remembered another very healthy ingredient we use in our Chilled Deli Hampers - smoked salmon. Yes we have the largest range of Smoked Salmon Hampers available online.
Our Organic Smoked Salmon is sourced predominantly from Ummera Irish Smokehouse in West Cork, and we also source from Ewing's in Belfast and Burren Smokehouse in Co. Clare.
Upon reading up on the health benefits of consuming smoked salmon on a regular basis I came across a very helpful article by Healthline.
In summary, here are the 11 Health Benefits of Salmon, which we love to include in our Gourmet Hampers.
1) Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids

11) Delicious & Versatile
We include the smoked salmon into several of our ranges: The Artisan Range, The Great Taste Award range and then for more specific ones such as Brunch Hampers or Sympathy Hampers.
This is the base gift box in our Artisan Range is isn't themed for any particular occasion, but focuses on fresh deli items such as meats and cheese. This means it is often ordered as a Birthday Gift, Thank You Gift or Christmas Gift. We will theme the gift card that goes with it based on the message you include for the recipient. Yes we do read all your messages!
This Hamper is again not dedicated to one particular occasion, but instead can be themed for the occasion you wish. The Great Taste Range of Hampers do just what they say, contain award winning food and drink from artisan producers. They are then available in chilled versions were the smoked salmon, meats and cheese are added.
Smoked salmon is perfect for a posh/healthy breakfast/brunch and we designed a gift hamper around this. Our customers like to send this as a birthday breakfast or for a special occasion such as Valentine's Day or an Anniversary.
Speaking of special occasions we also have smoked salmon available in specially themed gifts baskets for Anniversaries, Weddings, Birthdays or With Sympathy. You can see some examples of these below.
All our Fresh Hampers are delivered on an overnight service and are packed in cold sleeves so as they arrive freshly the next day.
If you wish to send a deli hamper we hope you can find one from our extensive range, and if not please just get in touch and we are happy to help.
If you are thinking ahead to Christmas then check back very soon, as our Christmas 2019 Hampers are currently being added to the website as we speak.
