What do you buy for the man who has everything or the man who says he wants nothing? With Valentine’s Day fast approaching this will be a question on many gift hunters’ lips.
Hampers for him make a fantastic gift for any man, particularly the ones who are difficult to buy for! Everyone has a favourite food or drink, and with the extensive range of hampers on the market, you can be sure you will be able to find one containing his best-loved treats within your budget. The presentation of hampers can make even the most ordinary consumables look a whole lot more interesting. Some come with extra gifts such as cheese knife sets or drinkware. If your man has a sweet tooth you might wish to consider hampers for him from Thorntons, for instance.
Even if your recipient isn’t a big ‘foodie’, there are lots of alternatives. How would he like a pamper hamper of luxury men’s toiletries, or even a hobby hamper themed around his favourite activity or sport? The beauty of a gift hamper for him means that even if you can’t quite find the one you want, you can buy the closest match and then customize it yourself. In light of the Valentine’s Day occasion you could tuck in some secret handwritten notes, or scatter across a handful of love themed sweets. If you have a bit left in your budget maybe you could boost his hamper with a CD or concert tickets. The possibilities are endless!
So how much does a hamper cost? Typically, they tend to start from a very reasonable £15 for hampers containing a selection of sweet treats. There’s an outstanding mid-range market in hampers too, priced between £30 and £60, containing sweet or savoury gourmet food items (or both!) and a good bottle of something alcoholic (usually wine, whisky or port). Usually, you’ll also find the hobby and interest themed hampers in this range. You can pick up a decent beer themed hamper for between £20 and £50. At the premium end, which can be anything from £60 to £150, you start to see Champagne and high-end luxury food included.
Hampers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. The contents are typically displayed in baskets, gift boxes or picnic baskets, often wrapped up with cellophane and ribbons for an extra special touch. Once all the contents are gone the lucky recipient of your gift will be left with an attractive and practical storage piece, particularly useful for loose change, batteries and spare keys!
So don’t spend any longer worrying about what to get the man in your life for Valentine’s Day. Instead you can look forward to watching him happily rummage through all the goodies in a thoughtfully chosen hamper for him!
