DIY Christmas Hampers

Hi Guys!

This is a super quick post for me to share a little DIY Christmas Hampering I did this year.

The Packaging:

Home baskets…

For my Christmas Hampers I used 2 different basket sizes. They came in a 2pk from George Home, with one large basket and a smaller one sitting inside. I thought it would be nice to use a basket that not only looked pretty but could be used again! Buy here.

I also spotted some good ones at Wilco when I went to get some cellophane.


Keep it cheap and cheerful at Wilco where you can get 3m for only £1.

My small hampers only needed 1m and the larger ones, 1.3m to wrap. Oh and don’t forget to tie it all up with some ribbon!

Personalised gift tags…

Instead of having to carefully write out little gift tags, I bought A4 sheets of self-adhesive labels so I could type and print them. WH Smith sells some that come with a Word document template which is available to download for free in the product description. No fancy design software needed.

The Contents:

Something sweet…

It’s Christmas! Add their favourite chocolate, candies or cookies.

Something smelly…

Throw in some festive candles to set the atmosphere. You could also add a bottle of perfume or fruity flavoured toiletries.

Something personal…

What do they like to do? What goals are they working towards? What’s your favourite shared memory? Finally add a personal touch to your Christmas Hamper with their favourite game, bottle of wine or simply a picture of you guys in a cute frame.
