35 Years of Hampers

Clearwater Hampers have been sending out gifts worldwide for over 35 years. Starting as a small mail order company mailing out sides of smoked salmon, we have seen it grow into one of the UK’s leading hamper and gift company. As with many other companies 35 years ago, Information Technology was very limited and much of the order processing was completed manually even down to filling out courier dockets by hand! Now of course it’s all different… thankfully all of our processes are now computerised giving way to a much slicker operation enabling us to handle the volumes of orders that pass through our hands every day. Originally operating out of the premises of its sister company, Clearwater Fish Farm with a couple of small offices and a packing shed we now occupy modern purpose built premises at Milton Park in Oxfordshire. With a combined office and warehouse space of 2,000 sq. m. we are able to work much more efficiently and operations are much more effective. Staff have been and gone, but many of us have been with Clearwater Hampers for well over 10 years so we have much experience in all aspects of the gift giving industry…from sourcing a simple packet of biscuits to creating stunningly presented gifts. 35 years ago much of the customer database was the private consumer, but now have sector wide customers ranging from corporate's to overseas merchants and agents. Still selling sides of salmon, we now have a range of over 150 hampers covering all aspects of gift giving. From Christmas to birthdays to Mother’s Day baskets to wine gifts and even Thanksgiving treats! Customers can also use our website hamper.com to create their very own bespoke hampers for their friends of family.
