Making the right choice when it comes to choosing Gift Hampers for Christmas is simple when you consider exactly what you are trying to achieve. 

Taking a few moments to consider exactly who you are giving your hampers to makes all the difference when your recipients actually receive their gift hamper. 

Important things like personal preferences, tastes in wine and food, and keeping in mind any medical or allergy concerns all goes into making your Xmas gift basket valued. 

As a gift hamper specialist with over ten years experience in managing online and phone orders in the crucial weeks before Christmas, our guest contributor in this article is well versed in the dos and donts of meeting your expectations from a sales perspective and is freely offering some handy hints and tips on what to look out for when you are dealing with a gift hamper supplier.

Insider knowledge is priceless in this situation, where once you know some of the general industry-wide practices you will be empowered to make a better buying decision and ultimately get better value for your dollar.

Avoid the Pitfalls and Be Armed with Confidence

Please note, we share this with you on a basis that you do not breach a sort of “nod, nod, wink, wink” acceptance that whilst we are not pointing out any retailers or wholesalers in particular, you will be able to notice and observe the points we make when you are in the buying process with your hamper or gift basket supplier.

When you want to make a lasting impression with a nod to authentic, handmade gourmet food, people just like you choose to share a Christmas Hamper. 

A Christmas Hamper is a selection of food items and drinks arranged in a container or hamper for ease of transport. 

Most likely your hamper  arrives at the destination within a cardboard box, and the actual hamper be enclosed within some sort of stuffing and void filler.

The actual hamper itself will be in a box or basket or container, and have some sort of wrapping cover like cellophane or heat sealed poly-ethylene to keep the products in place during transit.

Just by describing the way the hamper arrives at your delivery destination shows how the appearance and presentation can be completely over taken by the sheer bulk of the enclosing big brown box.

So it is crucial that your hamper providore uses some intelligent packaging solutions like a custom printed box, or at the very least a stencilled logo along with the delivery instructions.

First Impressions Build Anticipation – Consider Your Box

At delivery time, it is all about building expectation and creating a feeling of anticipation – and a well branded box complete with an established authoritative well-know brand works wonders at this. 

Nothing is more off putting than receiving an otherwise wonderful hamper in a recycled kitty litter box – for example. 

So be mindful of this and take the time to ask your preferred hamper specialist if this is a part of their service – if not – perhaps you should be dealing with a hamper company that does supply this as a part of their service.
