FESTIVE FACTS

Christmas hampers have long since been firmly rooted in our festive traditions.

In fact, it is widely believed that the concept of a Christmas hamper dates all the way back to the 11th century, introduced from France back in the days of William the Conqueror.

The tradition really took off in the form we know today in Victorian times, largely due to their versatility - they can be personalised and provide a perfect gift to people from all walks of life, from friends, family, colleagues, charity donations and more.
