Clearwater Hampers mail order founded
With humble beginnings, hampers.com started out as a fish farm business in the Oxfordshire countryside in 1979 and traded as Clearwater hampers. Back then, we sent trout and smoked salmon products via mail order alongside various other food gifts. Quite different to where we’re at now.
We have remained in Oxfordshire throughout, changing the name to hamper.com, the home of Clearwater hampers in 2015 and becoming hampers.com in 2020, as we felt adding the 's' better represented what we do as a business. One thing has always remained consistent and that is that we pride ourselves on being a team, who cares in the same way that you do. We believe in triggering memories and creating happiness through our personal touch, capturing the essence of this through a wonderful gift that is much more than just a gift - it’s an experience.

This is complemented by a state-of-the-art picking system that allows our team to accurately handle the high volumes of orders that come through hampers.com every year, especially considering ALL hampers are picked, packed and posted by hand.
We do this because we know how important it is that when the gift from you is opened, it feels thoughtful, personal and is presented to the highest of standards. It’s all part of how we bring joy and wholehearted togetherness through gifting.
It’s not as simple as just filling a hamper with a few gourmet foods and drinks and hoping it ticks the right boxes, so that someone will love the treat you surprise them with.
Everyone at hampers.com is a gifting expert; we strive for accuracy, precision and complete care with every single hamper that we design, create and build for you and for them, by hand.
We always endeavour to source our products responsibly and therefore only work with UK suppliers that we have diligently selected, to ensure that we are minimising our impact on the environment and making a positive contribution to the community - where it matters most.
Our vision is to bring joy and wholehearted togetherness through gifting.
We aspire to do this in a number of ways, - by being a team that cares in the same way you do, by triggering memories and creating happiness through our personal touch, capturing the essence of this through a wonderful gift that is an experience, and minimising our impact on the environment and making a positive impact on our community.
We understand that you want a gift for someone truly special or remarkable in your life that conveys just how much you care.
We pride ourselves on being a team who cares the same way you do and that’s why our gifting experts have put so much time and effort into creating a truly luxurious range of gift hampers that you’d be more than proud to put your name next to.
Whatever your reason for surprising someone to a food and drink hamper, we want to help capture the essence of the moment; helping to create smiles, trigger memories and spread happiness.
And we do all of this while working hard to minimise our impact on the environment and maximising our positive impact on the local community.
