With a huge range of gifts out there it could be overwhelming and perhaps you’re feeling daunted by the whole thing.

Then let us help you…..

May we suggest a hamper?

What makes the perfect Valentine’s hamper?

A hamper perfect for that person, of course!

You know your loved one so you’ll know their likes and dislikes.


So, think about the contents:

Do you want an eclectic collection of gifts?

Or will there be a theme to your hamper?



Here are a few ideas for themes:

  • A Pamper Hamper:

For relaxation and a little well-deserved self-indulgence.

Think shampoos, perfume, moisturisers, shower gels, face masks, candles, oil diffusers, bath foam, and Prosecco.



  • Movie Night Hamper:

Good for all ages and great to share!

All you need for a cosy night in (just choose a film that your Valentine would love!).

Popcorn, hot chocolate, tea (or wine?!), candles, sweets, chocolate, blanket…


  • Personalised Gift Hamper:

Personalising gifts makes them even more special and heart-felt and they’ll be cherished forever.

So how about a hamper filled with personalised gifts – photo frames, a photo collage, your own photo album/scrapbook of memories,  mugs, socks,  jewellery,  sweets, cushions… there are tonnes of websites out there to help you.

Great for all ages and fun to collate!



  • Love-themed Hamper:

Seeing as it’s  Valentine’s Day why not choose a heart-shaped theme for your hamper?!

Or red/pink items?

Chocolates, sweets, jewellery, tealights, trinket boxes….you name it there’s a lot of choice.

Of course, you can make your own –  their favourite biscuits and cakes, heart-shaped?!


  • Hobby Hamper:

Has your loved one got a particular interest?

Sport, reading, puzzles, wine-tasting or gardening perhaps?

A hamper packed with gifts linked to their hobby will be very much appreciated.

A thoughtful gift.

You can’t go wrong with a hamper packed with tasty treats.
