Festive gift box, Anydaymade
For a hamper to graze on throughout the holidays, look no further than this luxurious box. Anydaymade in Oxted has its own boozy berry jam and brandy butter, which you can slather onto slices of Miller’s plum and date toast. Next, warm up those Melrose and Morgan mince pies for a true taste of the season or cosy up with coffee and biscuits from the Shortbread House’s festive drum. The Snowdonia truffle cheddar and Quicke’s smoked cheddar make fine additions to any cheeseboard. Pop the cork on the Squerryes vintage brut on Christmas Day. Each hamper comes beautifully wrapped. From £90, anydaymade.com

Delight little ones with an extra special surprise ahead of the big day. Get them into the spirit with the colouring pages of festive scenes, and then pop the hot chocolate bomb filled with marshmallows into the mug for a cosy treat before bedtime.

The box itself, decorated with a festive character and your child’s name, is a beautiful keepsake that can be treasured for years to come. £59.98, hampersbylauren.com

Surrey’s best brews, McLaren Fine Foods
Forget getting a generic box for that beer lover in your life – our county is filled with unique, exciting beverages that are well worth sampling. This hamper showcases them wonderfully, with Dorking Brewery, Crumbs Brewing and Big Smoke Bre. Co all featuring. Dorking Brewery’s Five Claw has tropical aromas and promises a mouth full of the West Coast, while the Surrey XPA is lightweight and easy to drink. The Sourdough Pale from Crumbs is zesty and the Bloomin’ Amber is malty and refreshing. Another beverage that also will transport you to warmer shores is the Rare Magic by the Big Smoke Bre. Co, as will the soft and hazy Daydream. It’s sure to keep them going for a while… at least until New Year’s, anyway. £24, mclarenfinefoods.com

Luxury Surrey Hills hamper, Partisan Cheesemonger
Sometimes, quite simply, absolute decadence is required, and this hamper curated by Guildford’s independent cheesemonger certainly produces that. The fine products come from Surrey and the surrounding areas and have been specially chosen in order to provide the most sumptuous experience. The cheeses come with tasting note guides from the experts, so you can fully enjoy the flavours. Pair them with The Fine Cheese Co apricot and sesame seed crackers, chutney, as well as the high welfare charcuterie. Of course, with cheese there has to be wine too, and bottles from Pewley Down and Albury Vineyard will go wonderfully with them. A selection of decadent truffles from the Partisan’s personal chocolatier Kokoh chocolate. £120 without hamper basket, £150 with hamper basket, surrey-larder.co.uk

There’s also juicy sweet peppers stuffed with ricotta. The Summerdown chocolate mints are refreshingly moreish. Chase it all with a glass of Denbies Surrey Gold White Wine. £50, kingfisherfarmshop.com
