Before you buy, add up the value of what you get in your head. You'd be lucky to hit £32 even if you double the total. Never mind £40 and £80 is a joke.

Once again, ignore RRP and "Original" prices. They are precisely what the seller wishes them to be and have no bearing on reality.

Some people obviously think it's worth the money as last year the same hamper got 4.6 out of 5 stars and great reviews. Given the hamper itself costs money without any food it's not a bad deal for £32.

While I do agree with what you say, for a grandmother who is impossible to buy for, it is all about the presentation. She sees a nice wicker basket with goodies inside and doesn't think about the value of the actual items so it is ideal for her Christmas pressie tbh.
Regardless of the actual overall cost of the products inside, I think these make an excellent gift or thank you present for someone at Christmas , Somehow not quite the same if you pile a few items in a Tesco carrier and present to someone.
I did actually buy 6 hamper-baskets from BHS after last Christmas, when they were being sold off for a fiver a pop. They were a little smaller than these, didn't have the whisky chocolates and had two bottles of craft ale instead of the half bottle of red. I felt they were about on the money at a fiver. The baskets were pretty naff and went straight in the bin.

I get your points, but i have an issue with being ripped off. Anything i can do to show these shops that sticking a few reasonable items in some shredded paper and a rubbish straw basket and then charge 4 times the price has to be a good thing.

But i do understand the point about presentation for our Grannies. For our Granny, my wife and i buy a much better basket, or use one we already have (TK Maxx is good for hampers on cheap). We then fill it with food of our choice and make it look nice ourselves. This does several things.
- You get a much nicer basket (honestly, the BHS ones are dreadful).
- You get food that is specifically chosen for your Grannies by you.
- You get much better value.
- You pay less (not the same as better value).
- You get to make the effort, which is inifinately better than some factory production line.

Your Grannies will love you for it and you'll feel much better at having done it yoursef and not having been royally ripped off.

Sounds like you may have an issue with BHS...your hamper was ok for £5...what is it you expect for £5? Can't imagine anyone writing such a long post two times about a hamper!
Buy a basket off the bay....fill with your own choice of goodies...and there are lots of bargains out there at crimbo...
job sorted and satisfaction a guarantee
Brilliant gift for my elderly dad cheers

I posted this 3 weeks ago. Don't think the codes will work for that long.
