Whether you love it or you REALLY love it, Christmas is nearly on our doorsteps, which means it’s time to start the preparations.
It’s important to plan ahead and make sure you’ve got everything ready in good time before the big day. If there’s one thing that gifting should never be, it is stressful, which is why we’re here to give a helping hampers.com hand. After all, bringing joy and wholehearted togetherness to gifting is our very mantra.
Whether you’re looking to treat your mum, your grandad, your best friend or your friendly neighbour, we’ve got you covered with a whole range of brand-new Christmas hampers.
So, what Christmas gift is best for wine connoisseurs, we hear you ask? If you’ve come here looking for the best Christmas wine gifts, then you are in the right place. In this blog, we’ll take a look at the very best gifts on offer for the special person you’re looking to treat this festive season, with a focus on presents best-suited for those that are most partial to a glass (or bottle!) of red, white, rosé or bubbly.
For those who love their Champagne...
Luxury Champagne & Christmas Chocolate Hamper
There is arguably no better way to mark a celebration than with a bottle of Champagne, and is there an occasion in the year bigger than Christmas? Famously found solely in the Champagne region of France, a bottle of fizz is a perfect way to mark the festive season and say ‘Merry Christmas’.
One of our favourites – and an absolute classic – is the Bollinger NV Brut, which subtly combines structure, length and vivacity to bring aromas of pear and brioche, not to mention notes of fresh walnut. In the Luxury Champagne & Christmas Chocolate Hamper (£99) we have expertly paired this mighty Champagne with some delicious Christmas chocolates, all presented in a golden gift box. Decadence is key with this one!
We also have a Prosecco and Christmas Chocolates gift (£39), for those who prefer a glass of Italian fizz.
Luxury Traditional Christmas Hamper
If you want a gift that encapsulates everything that Christmas is (including sharing bottles of wine at the dinner table come December 25th) then look no further than the Luxury Traditional Christmas Hamper (£115). A bottle of excellent Autreau Champagne will satisfy refined palates, while a beautifully wrapped Christmas pudding, luxury mince pies and panettone bring happy festive memories flooding back. Trust us when we say the recipient of this will not be disappointed, and if you’re lucky you might even get to share.
For those who love red wine...
Sleigh Bells Christmas Basket
Our Sleigh Bells Christmas Basket (£79) is similarly packed with a fantastic selection of food and wine and, yes, it is exactly as festively brilliant as it sounds. Featuring an exclusive bottle of Prosecco to pop, and a medium bodied, fruity Finca Amalia Rioja, this gift basket contains everything needed for a Christmas celebration. The lucky receipient will also find luxury mince pies and a Brandy Christmas pudding, alongside other treats, such as fruit cake, biscuits and special tea.
Festive Mulled Wine and Mince Pies
With a roaring fire and snow on the ground, what better gift for a wine lover this Christmas than a bottle of the aptly-named Jacob Marley's mulled wine. Our Festive Mulled Wine and Mince Pies gift box (£22) offers the most traditional combination everyone loves at Christmas.
The Red Wine Duo Gift Box
Why complicate matters? If they love a full-bodied glass of red then The Red Wine Duo Gift Box (£42) is the perfect Christmas gift. Featuring the equally tempting Royal Road Malbec known for its plump, dark fruit flavours and smoky finish and the Kono Pinot Noir, with lifted red berry fruits on the nose, mixed with dark cherry notes and some savoury undertones, they'll savour every sip.
For those who love wine and cheese...
Luxury Wine, Cheese & Pate Hamper
Not every wine lover is by default a fan of cheese, but we think it’s safe to say that the two go hand in hand, and are perfect accompaniments for one another. This means that wine paired with cheese is a fantastic Christmas gift idea for your sister or grandma, brother or colleague, and really anyone who appreciates the finer things in life.
While you can individually pair your loved ones’ favourite wines and cheeses, why not let the experts do it for you, with some of the very best cheese and wine hampers around? Our Luxury, Wine, Cheese & Rillette Hamper (£72) is a truly sensational mix of delicious tastes, with a bottle Tinto Figuero 4 red wine starring alongside two wheels of award-winning mature cheddar. A pot of our unique pork rillette, sticky fig relish and pitted olives bring the flavour, with added treats making up the selection. If you are adamant in making the plunge yourself, then check out our ultimate guide to food and wine pairing, where the best selections are covered.
The Port and Stilton Christmas Gift Box
Christmas is the perfect time for fortified wine. Those with a refined palate will the bottle of Taylor's First Estate Reserve Port. It is a young, vibrant, rich and fruity Port, deep ruby in colour, and crammed with blackcurrant, plum and liquorice flavours. As is festive tradition, it pairs perfectly with a great stilton, presented in a delightful ceramic pot. Bring out of the flavours with the delicious Christmas chutney on rye and charcoal sourdough crackers from Peter's Yard.

We have so many to choose from and including red and white wine combinations, as well as Champagne, Prosecco, Port and mulled wine.
While you can certainly look at things like a wine tasting experience or even a wine subscription, we think it’s best to go with the tried and the tested, where you can get free UK delivery and see the smile on a loved one’s face when they open their very own wine gift box.
We hope to have made your search for the best wine Christmas gifts as easy as possible with our suggestions in the blog, so that you can focus fully on bringing joy to your loved ones this Christmas.
