Food gift baskets to Canada and worldwide by British Hamper Co


How are the food gift baskets presented?

Our food baskets are presented in either gift boxes or traditional wicker gift baskets.


The food gift boxes are British-themed, lidded boxes. The design includes well-known British icons, making it a truly British experience.


Each gift box is finished with a hand-tied, navy ribbon and a gift card is slipped under the ribbon containing your gift message.


The wicker baskets are traditional gifts, often preferred for picnics. They too include a personalized gift card.


Both gift box types are carefully placed within shipping boxes for secure Canada and international gift basket delivery.

What type of food is in the food basket gifts?

As members of the Guild of Fine Food, we make sure to only include the best British artisan produce.


We carefully select the food for our food gift baskets from Britain’s leading independent creators – most of which are award-winning.


The type of ambient food inside our food gifts varies for each basket. You’ll find high-quality crisps, nuts, biscuits, chocolate and more for international gift delivery to Canada.


We also have some brilliant fresh food gift baskets, including British cheese, smoked salmon, cured meat and afternoon tea treats which are available for UK delivery only.

Where do you offer food basket delivery to?

We offer food baskets Canada delivered, EU delivered and worldwide to many countries.


Our full range of food gifts is available for UK gift basket delivery, whereas our ambient food gift baskets are available for Canada and international gift delivery.


Our gift baskets to send abroad are ambient rather than fresh, as fresh food is not suitable for international gift delivery.


Other than food gifts Canada delivered, UK next day delivery gifts, gift baskets to USA, food baskets to New Zealand and gifts to Australia are amongst our most popular gift basket delivery destinations.


If you click on a food basket, you’ll see the option to select your preferred gift basket delivery country. If it is not listed, it’s either because the food basket is not suitable for gift delivery to that country (i.e., because it’s fresh), or because we don’t offer gift delivery to that country due to customs restrictions.

What occasions are the food gift baskets suitable for?

Our food baskets are suitable for year-round sending, making them brilliant gift ideas for all occasions.


Historically, food baskets were Christmas gifts for families as they were great gift ideas for whole families near and far.


Nowadays, people send food gifts abroad and across the UK for all forms of occasions. Most people love a surprise gift basket delivery of food and drink, so they’re very popular gifts to give!


Some of the top occasion themed gifts that our customers choose are Christmas food baskets, Father’s Day gift baskets, corporate Christmas gifts, birthday gift baskets, get well soon gifts, Mother’s Day baskets, anniversary gifts and Easter baskets.

Are the food gifts chilled or ambient?

Our food gifts contain a mixture of chilled and ambient produce.


Food baskets Canada bound are all ambient, whereas our food gift baskets UK bound can be chilled or ambient. Ambient gift baskets, such as the Premium British Treats Gift Basket or Artisan Gourmet Gift Basket contain ambient produce such as fudge, nuts, crisps, biscuits, tea etc.


Chilled food baskets include chilled produce such as handmade scones, smoked salmon and cheese. Our chilled food gifts include afternoon tea gift baskets UK delivered, cheese and wine baskets UK delivered and picnic baskets UK delivered.


If sending a gift to the UK, you’ll be notified if your gift box is chilled at checkout, in which case it’s worth making sure your recipients are at home on your chosen delivery date to make sure they can receive the food gift. 


If you’re looking to send a gift basket to Canada or elsewhere outside of the UK, you’ll need to choose an ambient gift basket as fresh food is not suitable for international gift delivery.

How long will food gift basket delivery take?

Gift basket delivery to Canada takes up to 5 working days.


For other countries, food basket delivery lead time depends on where you’re sending to.


For our food gifts UK bound, we offer next day gift delivery, weekend gift basket delivery and preferred date gift delivery.


If you’re sending a gift basket to Canada or outside of the UK, you can choose your preferred ‘delivered by’ dates. This means the food gifts could arrive up to a few days before your chosen date.


Whether you choose Canada gift basket delivery or international gift delivery, your food basket will be sent on an express, tracked service so that you can monitor progress from dispatch to delivery.

Do you have food gift baskets with alcohol?

Yes, our food basket range contains alcohol gifts as well as alcohol free gifts. However, these are for UK gift delivery only.


We do not send gift baskets with alcohol to Canada or anywhere else outside of the UK.


The alcohol that some of our food baskets contain includes wine, gin, beer, whisky, Champagne and more.


Popular combinations include cheese and wine baskets, beer and chocolate gifts, whisky and cheese gifts, and Champagne and truffles gifts.
