Christmas is such fun but preparing for the Christmas holiday can be such a busy and pressure-packed ordeal, and that dreaded countdown has now started for families all over the world!
Sure, there’s plenty of joy and pleasure in getting ready for Christmas – it’s always fun to craft with the kiddies, start enjoying a few tasty seasonal treats every now and then, mmmm yummy, and find the perfect gifts for your friends and family members. But all of these tasks together, and specifically the issue of finding the right gifts, can ultimately amount to a great deal of stress and hard work! Christmas can be far from easy don’t you agree?
To some extent, gift shopping can be fairly simple. For young children, a single stroll through the nearest Toys R Us may help you to find everything you need; for teenagers, the hottest audio and gaming electronics are often a good place to start; and for just about anybody, a red-hot item like the new iPhone 5s would make a great gift. Oh yes please! Then of course there are the more personal gifts for loved ones – jewellery, specifically requested items, etc. But what do you do when you get to those few people on your list who seem to have everything? Or what if you need a gift that’s suitable for an entire family or group?
As it happens, Marks and Spencer tends to offer a convenient solution for these dilemmas, with its delectable selection of Christmas hampers. They really do look soooo tempting! These gift items come in a wide range according to both price and contents, and are designed to provide ready-made baskets for those difficult gift-giving opportunities. Some order them to give to families or groups; some use them as convenient solutions when no other gift seems appropriate; and some even buy them for their own homes, to have around throughout the holidays! Here’s a quick glimpse at a few of the specific hampers, to give you an idea of the huge content and price variety available.
- Ultimate Christmas Hamper – This £999.99 gift is incredibly extravagant. Three wicker baskets are filled with fine wines, champagne, sweet and savory treats, and even items like spirits, oils and spreads. Of course the price is enormous, but in the right situation it’s an incredible gift.
- Family Christmas Hamper – For £150.00, this hamper is a single basket complete with chocolates, wines, various other treats, as well as one speciality item. You can purchase the Hamper with a set of Christmas table crackers or an ornamental cushion to come with it.
- Pamper Hamper – A £40.00 option, the Pamper Hamper is a more romantic option, complete with just a few decadent treats, a single bottle of sweet wine, and luxurious bath gel and hand lotion in a heart-shaped basket.
These are just a few of literally dozens of different hamper options, there’s sure to be something to suit absolutely everyone. The idea behind all of them is always the same: a convenient, thoughtful, and luxurious collection of goods perfect for just about anybody! Putting these on your shopping list can significantly simplify your Christmas preparation don’t you think?
