In case you haven’t noticed yet, we’ve had a bit of a makeover and have a brand-new look, as well as a delicious and delightful new product range. Although we might look a little different on the outside, we’re even better on the inside, and we’re still bringing joy and wholehearted togetherness to gifting. We’ve made these changes to give you the confidence that you’re choosing a gifting company that cares as much as you do.
All the changes that we have implemented over the past 6 months or so have been made with you, the customer, in mind.
Earlier on in the year we took the first step towards our brand-new look, when we updated our name and URL from hamper.com to hampers.com; after all, isn’t everything better with an ‘s’ on the end? Chocolates, cakes, biscuits, presents … well, you get the idea.
Not only do we have a new name, we have also undergone some huge changes with our branding, including a shiny new symbol and slogan. ‘Bringing joy to gifting’ has always been at the heart of everything we do and, like we said, we haven’t changed on the inside, but we have now included this on our symbol to represent our emphasis and reflect our personality. From our beginnings as Clearwater Hampers (more than 40 years ago) to now, we have always understood that gifting is more than just a material exchange of products; that it represents a meaningful experience for both the gifter and the recipient, and our brand revolves around the ideal that each interaction is special. Our hampers are expertly selected and handpicked for this very reason, so it was important for us to show this as part of our rebranding.
As you might be able to see, our website has had a complete makeover. We thought to ourselves: “If our hampers are so stunning, why can’t our website be even more visually stunning than it already is?” To that end we’ve got a brand-new colour scheme, logo and branding, all neatly represented on our wonderful new site. Not only does it have a fresh look, but it has been updated so that it is more user friendly, allowing you to easily find the right gifts for the special people in your life. You can now easily access our different hamper ranges from the homepage, see our most popular selections and relevant options, thus taking the hassle out of gifting so you can focus wholly on finding the perfect gift for that lucky person.
Even our language has been updated so that it is more in line with our personality which, as you know, is all about joy, togetherness and connection to one another. We have ensured that all our communication represents this, so that you know that it is us behind the words, and with you for every step of the gifting process. We’ve also added in a ‘meet the team’ section on our About Us page, so that you can see who is on the other side, as well as learn what our own favourite hampers are (and meet our office mascot and Head of Morale, Totoro).
In addition to a brand-new look and feel, we’ve got some brand-new suppliers. Every 12 months we revisit our suppliers to ensure that they are still in line with our beliefs and we’re offering you the highest quality food and drink hampers on the market. Not only do we choose our suppliers based on the high quality of food and drink they offer, but also on their commitment to sustainability, doing their bit for the planet, local communities and future generations. This isn’t something we do for the sake of it or for acclaim, but something that is at the heart of all we do. We also aim to work with as many high quality suppliers as possible, year in, year out, who make it their mission to be as environmental and planet-friendly as possible, and you can find more about this on Our Suppliers page.
We couldn’t have a brand-new look without giving you some quality brand new hampers to choose from. While we have kept some of your favourites (if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it and all that), we’ve added roughly 100 new fantastic gift hampers, with a huge range of delicious food, drink and everything in between. Not only do we have a new range of fresh hampers with mouth-watering treats from new suppliers, we have also got some brand-new, beautiful packaging, that is fully recyclable - you can read more about this in our Environmental Policy.
Sporting the new hampers.com colours of teal on the outside and salmon on the inner, it’s also adorned with a simple message at the core of our hearts: ‘Wherever you are, whoever you’re with, savour the occasion with hampers.com’.
If you’re not already bursting with excitement, we’re going to take a look at some of the favourites we’ve got on our new site, to give you all the gift hamper ideas you need; buckle in.
As you know, we have hampers for every occasion, from huge celebrations like Christmas all the way to afternoon tea. Whether planning for a friend or family member or intending for yourself, the Afternoon Tea Delights Hamper has everything you need, and is part of our new range. Afternoon blend tea bags are complemented by a selection of delicious treats perfect for a tea party, from baked biscuits and almond thins to fruity whisky cake and a delicious raspberry jam.
For the perfect gift for the foodie in your life, we have updated our bestselling Bearing Gifts Hamper, which is still packed with all the sweet and savoury snacks your heart could desire. Hand cooked oyster chilli & lemon crisps, dry roasted peanuts and black pepper crackers are the savoury heroes, while gourmet chocolate pastilles, marshmallows and salted caramel popcorn feature on the sweet side. All of this and more can be enjoyed with a selection of traditional jam and marmalade, breakfast coffee and tea, perfect for that special someone, even if that person is you. There are plenty of food hamper gifts to be found in the new range, so there really is something for everyone.
If you’re looking to treat someone with a sweet tooth then we have plenty of selections in our new range, including one of our favourites – the Heavenly Chocolate Hamper. As you might imagine, this is a chocaholic’s dream, with melt-in-the-mouth chocolates, rocky road and triple choc biscuits just the tip of the iceberg.
There aren’t many better ways to show someone that they are special than with a luxury wine hamper, and we have options aplenty in that category. Included in our new range is the Premium Food and Wine Hamper, which boasts an embarrassment of riches, spearheaded by luxury bottles of red and white wine with delicious snacks both savoury and sweet. For those that like their wine and cheese paired with pâté, the Classic Wine, Cheese & Pate Hamper is the one to look at. A bottle of Finca Amalia is combined with two types of award-winning cheese, chicken liver and pork pâté and other mouth-watering treats.
For those with a penchant for quality liquor, we have a fantastic selection of gin hampers, whisky hampers and more. The Luxury Gin Hamper for example, contains a premium bottle of Berkshire dry gin, paired with the finest Fentimans tonic water, special G&T popcorn and more delicious snacks. Comparatively, the Premium Whisky & Food Gift Basket features a 12-year-old bottle of Balvenie DoubleWood whisky, a rich and complex number that can be enjoyed alongside a fruity cake, crackers and a smooth mature cheddar.
Why have we got a fresh look?
We are constantly changing and adapting to ensure that we are sticking to our core principles, and providing the best service that we can to you so that your gifting journey is as enjoyable as possible. While constantly keeping up to date is great, we felt that this time we wanted to make a big change - one that encompassed our brand image, website, name, language and more. We’re so excited to share our new look and feel with you and truly hope that you love it as much as we do, and that we can continue to experience the joy of gifting together.
Sincerely, your hampers.com team.
