Who doesn't love a Christmas hamper stacked with delectable delights at Christmas time? Some of my fondest memories are vegetating on Christmas Day after dinner, dabbling in some very fancy crackers and staring lovingly at the select roast coffee I plan to consume the day after, pending the Christmas hangover.

Hampers are so expensive though, but with a little bit of effort, you could reduce the cost by making your own!

The Works have all the stuff needed to go straight in your basket, so go have a butchers and do it the right way this year!

B&M, Home Bargains and Wilko all have these baskets and wrap sets in this year. If you already have a basket, B&M sell a set which included cellophane wrap, ribbon and gift shred for under £1 ( saw them at my local store (Hull) on Friday.

Made some fantastic hampers one Christmas.... that fracking to good... to give away
I cried for a week when the wife took them out to deliver....

Lovely idea; anyone got some suggestions for nice stuff to put in it …Lovely idea; anyone got some suggestions for nice stuff to put in it (preferably deals of course!) A good source for high end food items might be Waitrose are doing ~£20 off an £80 shop which can be be combined with other reductions, and 'your picks' 20 per cent discount...


I’ve done several different ones over the years; jars of Chinese sauces and little dishes and chopsticks from my local Chinese supplier, Indian food and accessories similar, Spanish food using tins and jars of things such as olives and paella rice bought on holiday bit different from supermarket offerings. I’ve also done beauty ones with mix of bought items and nice sample sizes picked up at places such as Loccitaine and Kiehls. Last year I did a couple of Movie night ones with DVDs, chocolate, nuts, popcorn and beers I have to say I probably enjoy planning and putting these together more than any other Christmas shopping.

Thank you, easy to do and hampers are so expensive to buy ready made

Was in the store earlier and unfortunately the baskets are really poor quality. Home bargains had good ones last year but haven’t seen them in there yet

The wooden boxes in waitrose are lovely for £5 for diy hampers.

Think they have the hampers at a similar price in Aldi soon if someone doesn’t have a works near
Bought last year from Aldi and made my own
soo much cheaper than buying a ready made hamper

Saw some nice looking diy hamper baskets in Iceland the other day. Didn't spy the price, but maybe worth a look if you're nearby one.

Iceland ones are £5. I bought one last week, they are a good size too!

Iceland are doing them (baskets) for £5

Hampers are £5 in Iceland

Steal the banana cardboard boxes from your local supermarket and cover these in paper etc alternatively...

Not long left....

I do these every few years and they always go down a treat. I fill them over a few months with all sorts of stuff on offer in supermarkets and discounters. I used to buy the baskets and wraps off eBay but ALDI have done them cheaper for the past 2 years. They're on as an impending special buy at the moment and area available online too for £4.9932390134-9YhZS.jpg

The past few years I've used these to make up Christmas Eve hampers for the kids. I fill them with some nice bath/shower bits, body spray, nail polish for the girls etc..A new pair of pyjamas & bedsocks. Then usually a Christmas mug with a sachet of Hot Chocolate, a Crimbo film and some sweets etc..They're given them early evening and then spend it getting themselves preened ready for Christmas Day before settling down in their new PJ's and watching the cheesy Crimbo films etc...I started it initially because tbh they'd end up with so much of this type of stuff Christmas Day it seemed a good way to let them have some stocking presents and appreciate/take notice of them, while also distracting them/calming them down as they'd get so hyped up on Christmas Eve and so it became something they'd look forward too. This year they're 20, 16 and 14.....sad as it may sound I'll be doing the same thing again this year because I know secretly they'd be gutted if I didn't....although I'm not so sure they'll be posting it on Instagram/Snapchat etc anymore... HOT from me btw OP

I agree, I much prefer them to ones I have seen elsewhere, personally I thought the ones in the works looked a bit flimsy (probably not correct spelling)
