#1. Christmas Indulgence Hamper with Penfolds Max's Shiraz
Christmas is a season of indulgence, and "indulgent" is a good adjective for this Christmas hamper. Like many of our gift hampers, it features a selection of sweet crowd-pleasers, including a traditional Christmas pudding, fruit mince tarts, caramelised peanut brittle, and cranberry and pistachio crispbread. This hamper also includes a bottle of Penfolds Max's Shiraz, a contemporary drop that's bold and fruit-driven.
#2. The Ultimate Christmas Foodies with Red Wine Hamper
Foodies are the ideal gift recipients for our Christmas gift hampers, as providing epicurean, unique tasting experiences is part of the magic of our hampers. "Epicurean" is a word that is strongly associated with this hamper. The crown jewel of the hamper is a bottle of Sulis Langhorne Creek Cabernet from Mr Riggs, and it's accompanied by a lovely range of gourmet treats that will delight anyone with a sweet tooth. Look out for the fruit mince tarts, iced Christmas cake slices, and sour cherry and dark chocolate slice – they're irresistible.
#3. Everything But the Ham Hamper
This is the perfect Christmas gift hamper for anyone looking to simplify the Christmas menu and only provide a salad and a roast. As the name suggests, this hamper provides an array of savoury and sweet delicacies, including stand-outs like a handmade Christmas pudding, dark chocolate Belgian wafers, Tasmanian black truffle paste, and cranberry verjuice sauce. This hamper is so decadent and delicious that every member of the family will want their own Christmas hamper after seeing it.
#4. Christmas Indulgence Hamper
If you're looking for Christmas gift ideas for someone who's a sucker for Christmas desserts, this is the hamper for you. Though it contains two savoury items (artisan crackers and cabernet paste), the majority of the items in this hamper are desserts. Your giftee will love sinking their teeth into Christmas fruit mince tarts, a handmade Christmas pudding, Christmas cake, and toffee popcorn brittle.
#5. Christmas Bites with Red Wine Hamper
If you're looking for an Xmas hamper with a little bit of everything, this hamper is the perfect gift for you. As the name suggests, it features an array of Christmas bites, from roasted capsicum tapenade and quince paste to fruit mince tarts and a gingerbread almond bonbon. The red in this hamper is an iconic bottle of Sulis Langhorne Creek Cabernet by Mr Riggs, a drop with festive hints of blackcurrant, dark chocolate, and mint. It pairs beautifully with the nibbles provided in this hamper.
#6. Christmas Mini Delights Hamper
This next Christmas gift box is one of our more affordable Christmas hampers, though that doesn't diminish its charm or deliciousness. It boasts a generous selection of goodies sweet and savoury, including quince paste, roasted capsicum tapenade, a small handmade Christmas pudding, and fruit mince tarts.
#7. Christmas Cheer with Red Wine Hamper
Mr Riggs is back with the iconic and beloved bottle of Sulis Langhorne Creek Cabernet in this hamper. Found in many of our most popular wine hampers, it offers hints of chocolate, mint, and blackcurrants. In this hamper, it's accompanied by celebrity chef Maggie Beer's brandy butter sauce, dark chocolate almonds, cocoa-dusted roasted peanuts and almonds, and a Christmas pudding. Help your giftee find some moments of bliss over a glass of red wine and sweet nibbles with this hamper.
