These luxury afternoon tea baskets provide the essentials for enjoying a blissful afternoon in the garden. What a lovely, civilized gift to be able to give!

The British tradition of Afternoon Tea is incredibly special, close to our hearts and worth celebrating.

Steeped in history with unrelenting popularity, it has become a timeless British pastime.

We only include produce that we love in our afternoon tea gift baskets, and by working with Britain's leading artisan producers, we have a collection that we're remarkably proud of.

Amongst the selection of cream tea and afternoon tea gift baskets, you’ll find handmade cakes, fruity jams and quality Lincolnshire teas.

Presented with your personalized gift card in traditional lidded wicker baskets or our luxury gift boxes and delivered to your door via our courier partners.

These luxury gift baskets to Canada are suitable for any occasion and make thoughtful birthday treats, anniversary gifts or sympathy baskets.

Tea gift baskets by The British Hamper Company


How are the afternoon tea baskets presented?

Our afternoon tea gift baskets are presented in either a traditional wicker basket or our British-themed lidded gift boxes with a hand-tied ribbon.


Both our wicker baskets and British gift boxes are reusable and recyclable. And as they're high quality, we find they often become keepsakes in recipients' homes!


Each comes with a gift card containing a message of your choosing. These gift cards can also be left blank if you would like to handwrite your message.

Where do you source your gift basket produce from?

We source our food items from leading artisan producers all over the UK.


For example, our clotted cream is from renowned Rodda's in Cornwall, the scones are from The Handmade Cake Co's Berkshire bakery and the toffee waffles are baked in the Teifi Valley, Wales.


Our drinks are from highly regarded producers all over the world.


For example, you'll spot the award-winning Italian Ruggeri Prosecco in our Prosecco gift baskets, and we include Pimm's No.1 Cup which is of course British!


Please note we only offer chilled item and alcohol gift delivery within the UK. We do not send alcohol to Canada or internationally.

Which occasions are the afternoon tea gifts suitable for?

Our afternoon tea baskets are incredibly versatile, so whether you’re sending a taste of Britain to a loved one or expat abroad, or gifting within the UK, they make a welcome treat for any occasion.


Perfect as an accompaniment to a summer picnic or to brighten a dark winter day, our gifts make lovely valentines gift baskets, new home presents or birthday gift baskets.


These British food gifts are ideal for letting someone know you’re thinking of them, whether as condolence or get better soon gifts.

Can I pick the date of my afternoon tea gift delivery?

Yes, if you're sending in the UK, you'll have the option to choose your delivery date at checkout. Items will be despatched the previous working day on a tracked express service.


If you're sending your afternoon tea gift basket to Canada or internationally, we'll give you the option of a ‘delivered by’ date.


International gifts are despatched up to 10 working days prior to your chosen date to allow time for customs checks and so may arrive a few days earlier than the ‘delivered by’ date.

Is it safe sending an afternoon tea by post?

Yes, we specialize in UK and international gift delivery and only ever send gift baskets that have been tried, tested, and successfully delivered on a regular basis.


For example, we only send our fresh afternoon tea gift baskets across the UK as the fresh produce is not suitable for international gift delivery. 


But we also have equally wonderful ambient British afternoon tea gift baskets to send abroad. These include cakes, biscuits, waffles, tea, jam and more. 


Our afternoon tea gifts are securely packaged and carefully delivered on a tracked service by our trusted courier, DHL.


Our team is happy to help with any delivery queries you may have.

Can I send a cream tea gift basket abroad?

Our cream tea gift baskets are not suitable for sending abroad because they contain fresh items.


These are exclusively delivered within the UK allowing them to maintain the temperature required from the chilled items.


We do however have a huge range of ambient afternoon tea gifts for sending abroad – including our popular British Afternoon Tea Gift Basket.


Explore the range by selecting your desired delivery country.

Which countries do you deliver to?

All of our afternoon tea gifts are available for UK next day delivery.


We also deliver to more than 40 countries worldwide, including Canada.
