Christmas Hampers presented to an impeccable standard is what guides our philosophy towards the top selling Christmas Traditional Banquet option.
As the name suggests, this is our signature Christmas wicker Hamper choice filled with the highest quality foods traditionally associated with the festive period.
One of our all time top selling gift hampers, which has evolved over the years to stand out in a crowded market place as representing refined excellence and an outstanding price point.
Wonderfully traditional seasonal fayre handmade by homegrown artisan producers. Highlights include deliciously buttery sweet mince pies, rich fruit cake and Christmas pudding made by a master baker. Combined with a selection of specialty foods made to authentic recipes ensures an impressive Christmas Hamper full of ingredients that will tickle their taste buds and broaden their palettes.
The Christmas Traditional Banquet Hamper oozes tradition, with a focus on the savoury elements of Christmas, teas, coffees, cakes and biscuits. However, a Banquet wouldn’t be complete without some sweet treats which is why we have included a box of luxury Lindt, chocolate truffles and other chocolate treats.
A perennial favourite over the span of two decades, as time has gone by, the original concept behind the creation has survived intact. A cursory search through at its place in the market at this price point shows it is better value than a department store, has more charm than a direct market competitor and is more customer focused than a specialist producer. We only do gift Hampers, so we do them to perfection, updated each year for customer satisfaction.
It is simply an authentically classic and fantastic traditional hamper immaculately presented and professionally delivered to ease the difficulty of Christmas Shopping.

The Story

The Christmas Traditional Banquet was one of our very first Christmas Hamper designs. Our youthful naivety led us to believe that Christmas hampers was something, which Harrods and John Lewis sold. There was no point in us offering a range of Christmas Hampers because the market was already fully serviced by a variety of large retail department stores with big budgets. That was in 2002, when Internet Explorer, Alta Vista, Yahoo and Terra Networks were the main search engines.

We didn't think much of the Christmas Hampers available at the time so we created innovative derivatives of Christmas Hamper concepts. Products were sourced from a wide variety of local artisans and packed in a thoughtful and careful manner, but perhaps many of our creations were more radical than they really needed to be.

Yet as far as we were concerned they were extremely popular. When you go from zero sales to even double figures, then those hampers move to the top of your of your best sellers charts and the excitement builds. We thought everybody wanted to see something different and innovative. Over time, customers would approach us and ask us to make adjustments to hamper masterpieces and yes, you've guessed it:- those changes tended to be the substitution of the daring differentiation to the traditional and established favourites..

It is out of these changes that a core line of Traditional Christmas Hampers emerged and this particular hamper was originally simply known as Traditional Banquet, but evolved to to prepended with Christmas and appended with Hamper simply for Search reasons. We've innovated and improved over the past decade and a half until we arrive at our 2019 version, which has steadfastly refused over the years to be cheapened with substitutions of the core Artisan Bakery elements of the Hamper.

Perfect for

We find that this hamper is traditionally purchased by individual customers from around the world rather than businesses particularly when those buyers are from English speaking regions.
It is an extremely popular price point for a hamper, which could not be described as wholly non alcoholic due to the trace elements in the Pudding and Mince Pies. However it doesn't contain any bottles of alcohol so stands out as being unusual in a market whereby the familiar option is to include some wine.
We find it is sent most often to a Family rather than a specific individual. When an individual is nominated there is no gender bias or clear age demographic identifiable simply because this Christmas Hamper exists on the basis of it's quality.
