Don’t be Left Red-Faced, Try Last-Minute Gifts from Scottish Hampers

Many people with large families and blossoming social circles have, at some point, allowed a birthday, anniversary or other special event to slip their mind. Having so many dates to remember in the midst of a hectic schedule, balancing work and home lives, means that the cardinal sin of forgetting a special occasion will sometimes be committed. A generic bath set or pair of socks might paper over the cracks, but they do not offer the considerate air that a well-thought out gift creates. One of the best last-minute gifts that can be given is a build-your-own food hamper, containing a specially chosen selection of delicious treats and beverages for the recipient to enjoy, oblivious to the eleventh-hour nature of their gift.

For birthdays, engagements and anniversaries, no celebration is complete without a bottle of bubbly for a toast. A luxury champagne hamper is a thoughtful gift that can be purchased at the last minute and will please all recipients. The hampers come in luxury cases to show off the gift to its full potential, and often contain not only an exclusive bottle of champagne, but are also accompanied by a box of delicious chocolates or other sweet treats. They can be personalised with a unique message and delivered to the door of the recipient, or they can be delivered to the home of the gift-giver so they needn’t turn up at the celebration or party without something to offer.

The weather is beginning to turn, temperatures are starting to slowly rise, and some may be planning to spend their special occasion outdoors. Whether holding a baby shower picnic in a local park or celebrating an anniversary with a garden party, a luxury food hamper is bound to be the perfect gift for this occasion. They don’t require much planning or notice, but when they are packed full of decadent favourites such as local cheeses and elegant chocolate truffles, they appear to be a thoughtful and well-researched gift. At these sort of occasions, the larger hampers can also be shared around all guests and remove the stress of catering from those hosting the party.

A build-your-own hamper is also a great solution as a last-minute gift. It simply requires a basic knowledge of the recipient’s favourite wine or alcoholic drink, and educated guesses or asking around can be used to figure out whether they would appreciate cheese and preserves or cakes and biscuits. The luxury hampers are beautifully presented and are delivered within days of their order, making a perfect option for those busy individuals whose calendars failed them.
