What are Christmas Hampers and Why Do Many People Choose Them as Christmas Gifts?

Hampers are a set of related basket-like items. Commonly, Christmas hampers are traditional gifts containing seasonal favourites like fruitcake or plum pudding, chocolates, jams, biscuits, nuts, honey, smoked or dried meats, and cheese. Some Christmas hampers may also contain coffee or tea depending on the taste of the giver and the recipient. There are also luxury ones which contain high quality items like caviar, wines, and spirits. Note, however, that Christmas hampers or gift baskets are not restricted to contain food items. You can also give non-food items like bath items or beauty items.

2.    Chocolates are great stress busters.
Studies say that this could be because chocolates contain valeric acid, which is both a relaxant and a tranquiliser. Sweets or sugar is also associated with reducing stress because the sweet taste helps release an opiate-like substance in your brain. It is also believed that because eating chocolates is pleasurable, you release endorphins which lifts our moods or what we call sugar high.

3.    Chocolates can boost concentration.
Chocolates have a relatively low glycaemic index which can give lasting energy. This is because it doesn’t raise the blood sugar level quickly.
