Growing up in 80s, catalogues were found in pretty much every household.
Grattan, Freemans, Littlewoods and Kays would all be in our house.
I used to spend hours looking through them, deciding what my life would be like as a grown up. What clothes I would wear, what furniture my house would have, what jewellery I would own and what toys I would play with.
Obviously I was never going to be the kind of adult who didn’t play with toys.
Then came the really exciting bit, at the very back of the catalogue…
I used to LOVE looking at the hampers.
All the lovely food, drinks and treat that made Christmas crammed into a fancy looking box and sent direct to your door.
In my memory they even had turkeys in them.
They probably didn’t though.
My parents never got a hamper, I can’t recall why, probably the sheer cost.
But I decided that when I was a grown up, I would ALWAYS have a Christmas Hamper.
Here I am at the ripe old age of 39 and I’ve never had a Christmas hamper….UNTIL NOW.
When Prestige Hampers got in touch telling me about their range of Christmas Hampers and asked me to review one, I could barely contain my delight.
MY DREAMS WERE COMING TRUE.
OK, so the hamper I was sent wasn’t one of those huge ones I had desperately wanted as a child, but it was a hamper and I was excited!
The hamper arrived well packaged with mammoth bubble wrap. For a tiny moment I was worried it was going to be just a cardboard box but no!
It was a wicker tray filled with teas from Taylors of Harrogate.
Cookies and Lemon shortbread, organic and gluten free.
A Dundee cake, luxury chocolate domes and some small Cafe Tasse chocolates.
Lots of lovely, good quality goodies!
Even the children were excited and they aren’t even going to get a look in!
I’ve finally got myself a hamper and it made me as happy as I hoped it would.
I strongly suspect that you could deliver anything to me in a hamper and I will be over the moon.
With prices starting at £19.99 they would make a great gift for someone, or maybe just for
I received a hamper from Prestige in return for a review. All opinions are, as ever, my own.
