Have you heard of self-gifting? It’s a new gifting trend that we absolutely encourage. Why? Because gifting is all about bringing joy and it’s doesn’t have to be only to others, but to yourself too. It’s all about wellness, pampering, and self-care! 

We love knowing that when you choose a special gift it makes you feel good…and once in a while, especially at Christmas

…why not make that special recipient you? 

 

Self-care Christmas gifts

Christmas can be a difficult and busy time – so make sure you take some time just for you, for a little pampering.

Self-care at Christmas is important but it can be hard to do. Treat yourselves with one of our indulgent hampers and upon its arrival make some time to step away and have that vital “me time”.

Pop one of our Festive Mulled Wine and Mince Pies hampers in your basket. The mince pies are the perfect balance of buttery, crumbly pastry and sweet, spiced mincemeat. Whilst the appropriately-named bottle of Jacob Marley's mulled wine will fill your home with festive scents, this warming drink helps you to relax and switch off, as you gaze into the roaring fire, enjoying your self-care package. 

For a little indulgence, we highly recommend the Christmas Delights hamper packed full of festive favourites. Put on your favourite film and snuggle up under a warm blanket, then open this gorgeous gift box full of both sweet and savoury treats, including mince pies, biscuits, chocolates and award-winning sweet chilli peanuts and cashews.

If this doesn’t quite tickle your fancy, then why not choose a hamper full of your very own self-care, ‘time for me’ favourites? We have lots of chocolate, sweets and cheese hampers to choose from.

Finally, why not get away from traditional festive treats and purchase the ultimate self-care gift with our Pamper Hamper. Give yourself a pamper experience before the big day or after the office Christmas party, from the comfort of your own home. You’ll discover not only a selection of sweet treats and nibbles, but a box of Banks-Lyon Botanical Rose and Geranium bath salts and an Amber Blush scented candle. Enjoy a long, hot bath, with a bottle of our exclusive Prosecco Rosé...that's sure to help you relax and unwind.

Winter evening festive treats

Whether wrapping presents or writing Christmas cards, it's always nice to have a selection of treats to keep you going.

To really get you in the festive mood, why not self-gift A Little Taste of Christmas hamper? Not only will you find festive treats, including chocolates and nuts, but also delicious coffee and a brandy Christmas pudding – perfect for dessert on the sofa.

Self-gifting to enjoy together

Gifts for you don’t have to be enjoyed exclusively on your own. Why not treat you and your partner?

Christmas is notoriously busy and carving out time with your significant other can be difficult. We highly recommend a Christmas date night with the perfect romantic and comforting treat – The Couples Christmas Sharing Hamper. Spend some time with your loved one enjoying this delectable array of delicious foods, including award-winning Snowdonia cheese and chutney on sourdough crackers, alongside a fabulous bottle of Prosecco.

We also have the perfect hamper to enjoy together as a family – the aptly named: The Family Christmas Hamper.  With nativity plays, Christmas productions, end of year parties and trips to Santa’s Grotto…come home to a collection of treats that all of the family will enjoy, with no stress and effort for you. You’ll find a basket full of cheese, black pepper and roquefort crackers, pear, apple and ginger chutney, handmade chocolate bars, with salted caramel and Christmas pudding flavours, as well as mince pies, fruitcake, Christmas pudding and luxury double chocolate biscuits.

The ultimate answer to “we’re starving!”

Make entertaining easy for yourself

Finally, the ultimate in self-care is to make life a little easier for yourself.

Forget the huge Christmas food shopping list…agonising over what assortment of nibbles and treats to buy. Self-gift a whole hamper full of items to impress any number of guests and make Christmas entertaining a breeze.

Self-gift something special direct to your door

Self-care is not selfish. Treating yourself is not trivial. Self-pampering should be priority.
