The official festive season may still be a few months away, but it never hurts to get a head start on planning the perfect Christmas gifts for your loved ones and ensure huge smiles on their faces come December 25th morning.
Christmas 2020 is undoubtedly going to be different than ever before, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t still be an occasion to celebrate and make memories with loved ones. In order to help make the day special, you should already be thinking about doing your Christmas shopping, which is why we - the gifting experts - have put together a guide of the best gifts for beer drinkers, to help you through.
We’re already a month into the festive season here at hampers.com and have just launched a fantastic range of more than 100 brand-new, luxury food and drink hampers – including a stunning range of Christmas hampers – with something for everyone; beer gift ideas are just the tip of the iceberg.
So, if you’re after Christmas gift ideas for him, her or for them, we’ve got you covered with some of the best beer gift basket ideas you could ask for. Without further ado, let’s dive right in!
Craft Beer Hamper
The term craft beer usually refers to any beer which is produced in small batches by independently owned microbreweries (covered in more detail in our Ultimate Guide to Beer blog). These beers are incredibly versatile and can encompass a wide range of flavours and styles, making them the perfect tipple for any occasion and an ideal gift for beer-lovers.
Our Craft Beer Hamper (£29) comes complete with three of Freedom’s best lagers - Helles, Lager and Pilsner - all of which are on hand to wash down a mouth-watering selection of pork crackling, crisps, olives and nuts. Yum!
Craft Beer & Cheese Hamper
If you’re looking to go the extra mile with your beer gifts this Christmas, then the Craft Beer & Cheese Hamper (£38) should be very appealing. With the same selection of wonderful Freedom lagers included in the Craft Beer Hamper, this gift box also includes a beechwood smoked cheddar, as well as a range of treats including pickle, cheddar shallot crisps and black pepper wafers.
Real Ale Hamper
The Real Ale Hamper (£36) brings the pub experience home for those who love spending time at their local but will be avoiding a trip come Christmas day, with a selection of the finest ales and IPA beer. Featuring Butcombe Original, Gold and Goram beer bottles, each one has its own unique taste made using a blend of American and English hops, plus Caramalt and Marris Otter malt. This hamper is perfectly rounded off with a selection of salty nibbles that would be right at home behind the bar of any British pub.
Ploughman’s Beer Hamper
Whether you’re after beer gifts for men, women or anyone else, if your loved one enjoys strong and traditionally British flavours, then the Ploughman’s Beer Hamper (£42) is the ideal Christmas beer hamper for them. With a selection of three Butcombe beers - Original, Gold and Goram - it is also filled with everything required for a Ploughman’s feast, from award-winning cheese and crackers, to picked onions and pickles. All in all, a perfect beer gift box.
Spanish Beer Hamper
For those partial to a unique beer, we definitely recommend the Spanish Beer Hamper (£35) as the go-to Christmas beer gift, which contains three Estrella Galicia’s, Spanish ham crisps, olives, breadsticks and chilli jam.
Alcohol Free Beer Hamper
At hampers.com we know that not everyone that loves beer drinks alcohol, which is why our range of beer hampers includes the Alcohol Free Beer Hamper (£32). It’s a great choice for those that like to enjoy a crisp lager without the alcohol. Complete with not one but three bottles of alcohol-free Estrella Galicia, olives, crisps and more, you can’t go wrong here!
Hopefully we have been able to help you find the perfect Christmas gift for him, for her, or for anyone else, but in the unlikely event that we have not, there is a fantastic range of Christmas beer hampers for you to peruse. Ultimately, the most important thing to remember is that Christmas is about sharing quality time with loved pens and showing them how much they mean, which in 2020 is more crucial than ever.
