The Dinner Party Hamper
What's included in this hamper
A delightful gourmet hamper designed for sharing between friends and family.
This British hamper is filled with award winning cheddar cheese from Somerset, which we've paired with Cranberry and raisin toast and red onion chutney, along with Worcestershire Sauce Yorkshire Crisps and cheese biscuits.
To accompany the savoury items we've selected confectionary from our favourite artisan British producers, from Buttermilk fudge made in Cornwall through to chocolate orange zest batons and shortbread. All to be enjoyed with a Great Taste award winning cup of Lincoln Tea.
Beautifully presented in one of our bespoke British icon themed gift boxes which we'll hand tie in ribbon and deliver with your personalised gift card.

We’re constantly improving our corporate sustainability to make sure our corporate hampers are environmentally friendly, sustainable gifts.
We have now removed all bubble wrap from our hampers which has saved 40,000m2 of plastic a year! The glass jars and bottles inside our corporate hampers are wrapped in a high quality, recyclable cardboard sleeve which is visually appealing, protective, and sustainable.
Our traditional wicker hampers and British box hampers are recyclable. Aside from the fact they’re recyclable hampers, they’re also reusable hampers and we get a huge amount of feedback from customers and recipients letting us know what they’re now using their empty gift hampers for!
The vanilla paper shred within the hampers is also recycle and we make sure to design our export hampers to make the most of volumetric capacity.
We also partner with DHL International who have pledged to invest EUR 7 billion by 2030 in clean operations to reduce their emissions by 4 million tonnes.
We are still open and are taking orders for UK and international delivery. Our customer support team are available to speak with you on the phone, over live chat and via email so please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries.
You can read our full statement regarding our response to COVID-19 on our blog by clicking here.
Our couriers will not require a signature on a hand held device, instead they will be taking the name of the person accepting the hamper. Where possible the courier will leave the parcel on the door step before knocking and stepping away to leave a safe distance between your recipient and themselves. This ensures your hamper still gets delivered safely to the right recipient.
If your recipient is unable to come to the door the courier will leave a calling card with instructions on how to rearrange delivery. If you are able to provide a mobile phone number for your recipient they will be able to rearrange delivery on their smartphone.
To aid prompt delivery please provide a mobile telephone number for your recipient whenever possible.
The courier network is extremely busy but is continuing to provide a timely service. We will extend delivery lead times for the UK, which you will see from the ‘earliest delivery date' on each hamper, if the situation changes.
Your hamper will be dispatched on a 24 hour express service and we will do our utmost to deliver on the date you have requested, however if you're purchasing for a special occasion where possible we recommend selecting a delivery date prior to the date of the occasion in case of any delivery delays caused by localised COVID-19.
We only use the very best international couriers for overseas delivery and generally international delivery timescales and service levels remain unaffected. For some international destinations, where pockets of ‘lock-downs' are more severe there may be a slight delay until the couriers can attempt delivery.
We will do our utmost to deliver on or just before your requested delivery date. If you're purchasing for a special occasion where possible we recommend selecting a delivery date prior to the date of the occasion in case of any delivery delays caused by localised COVID-19.
Our experienced international delivery customer service team are actively monitoring all international shipments and are available to help should you have any queries.
