After a somewhat pared-back Christmas 2020, your favourite hostess with the mostess will no doubt be prepping for the most extravagant get-together this Christmas. Enter, then, these all-singing, all-dancing hampers that are bursting with the ultimate party food, booze and accessories. Perfect for giving them (or you, for that matter) a helping hand, they have starters, mains and desserts, plus snacks and drinks covered. Including everything from Platinum caviar to Wiltshire ham and even a nine-month-matured Christmas cake, what a great way to celebrate having loved ones together again!


Denied our traditional Sollitt family Christmas Day (complete with competitive board games and drunken charades) and our annual party with friends in 2020, I’ve been dreaming up all kinds of fun for Christmas 2021. I can’t think of a better way to get the festivities started than with a Christmas Tidings hamper – it has everything we need to celebrate in style, minus the pre-party prep. Win-win!

We can all agree that no cheese lover’s Christmas feast is complete without a decadent cheese board. So, if you know someone who’d be first in line for a hearty chunk of brie, then we have just the gift(s) to make their cheese-filled dreams come true. From the classic Stilton and Port gift box to the more contemporary Cheddar and Prosecco gift box or the aforementioned Vegan Cheese Board gift box, our fromage-focussed hampers are ripe for the picking. Complete with all the chutneys, crackers and wines they’ll need, it’s a match made in the cheese connoisseur’s heaven.

Many of your budding at-home mixologists may have hung up their cocktail shakers in favour of their favourite bar, but Christmas is the perfect time to bring those famous home cocktail recipes and rusty sommelier skills out of retirement. And we have the perfect tipple-tastic hampers to help. From carefully selected wine gift boxes to the decadent Cocktail Hour gift box – complete with pre-mixed Selfridges Selection Espresso Martini, cocktail glasses and delicious snacks – your tipple enthusiast will be the go-to for festive merriment this Christmas.


After an unusually quiet Christmas at home last year, I’m so looking forward to a bigger (and boozier!) celebration this festive season. For this reason, The Cocktail Hour box is nestled at the top of my wishlist – packed with a delicious Espresso Martini bottle, an array of nibbles (take it from me, the Torres crisps are almost too good to share) and a pair of fancy cocktail glasses to toast with – it’s the dream party in a package.
