Gift hampers are great for a wide variety of occasions. You can send hampers for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, to celebrate the arrival of a new baby, and even corporate success. There are no limits when it comes to hampers and gift baskets! That said, if you want to send a gift basket for a specific occasion and you want to make the theme very clear, then it’s time to get creative! Some hampers are already themed but others will give you the freedom to really make it personal.
Wedding Hampers
For a wedding hamper, you will need to choose one that’s practical for the newly weds and it should not contain any items that will likely perish while they are away on their honeymoon. One great idea is to present the couple with a picnic basket filled with all sorts of snacks and crisps. If you want to make sure that this hamper has that wedding feel to it, you need only wrap a luxurious white ribbon around it (like you would a boxed gift) and attach a wedding themed trinket to the bow.
Birthday Hampers
Birthday hampers can also be just about anything you know the recipient will enjoy. From wine and cheese to chocolate hampers, it’s all about their personal preferences. Once you have found the perfect hamper, you can add a birthday balloon and attach it to the hamper for good measure.
New Baby Hampers
When a new baby girl or boy makes its grand appearance, there’s no better reason to celebrate! The hamper can contain goodies for baby or you can do mum and dad a solid by including them in the gift. The new parents might like some sweet treats or even a bottle of bubbly. New mothers often feel quite run down so feel free to include some bath and body products for her. Then there’s the best part of all – spoiling the baby! From clothing and bibs to toys and books, you can quite literally shop ‘til you drop. These items will make the theme of the hamper crystal clear and, don’t forget, if you don’t want to go with the usual pink or blue, you can choose neutral colours instead.
Corporate Hampers
If you want to congratulate somebody on their promotion or on passing an exam, it’s time to focus on the elegant, corporate theme. A classy wine hamper is perfect for such an occasion and, if you wish, you can add something like a high-quality pen set or another handy office tool.
Romantic Hampers
Hampers can be sent to celebrate all sorts of romantic occasions including anniversaries and Valentine’s Day. If you want to impress your partner, you should look for something that you know they love. Once you’ve selected your gift basket, it’s time to add that little something extra. This really can be anything from jewellery to a photo of the two of you in an elegant frame.
Mother’s Day Hampers
Honouring mum on this one special day every year is an absolute must! Most hamper vendors will release a range of products specifically designed to make mum feel special. You can also add something special like a family photo in a gorgeous frame or, if you know that she collects certain items, you can add to her collection.
No matter the occasion, the best way of giving your hamper a theme is by making it personal! This is also the best way of showing the recipient how much thought you put into the gift selection process.
