The Hamper Emporium’s Journey To The Perfect Gourmet Gift Baskets
When we began Australia's premium gourmet hamper company over a decade ago, we began with a simple dream - To bring the most beautiful foods, high-quality gourmet produce, to recipients right across Australia. Back then, we did what we knew best. We worked hard to discover the world's best food producers and artisan goods, and we delivered gourmet products across the country—yes, even in old-school gift baskets. Now, we know that the true secret in having the finest Australian hampers is not only in ensuring that we pack our gift boxes full of amazing food and luxury gift items, it's also in ensuring that every hamper looks amazing. We have perfected the art of gourmet giving by curating the finest food gifts and creating luxury baskets that epitomise the essence of gifting.
Along the way we've researched the best packaging and presentation for our gift hampers. By providing world-class luxury gift boxes with every hamper, we know that whether you're sending something special for a graduation, a gourmet birthday hamper, sending condolences, a treat for a new mum and baby, anniversary gift basket, or any special occasion it’s important that each and every hamper looks as luxurious as the products inside. With our custom designed postage packaging, our gorgeous keepsake gift boxes, right through to the premium packaging of products inside our gourmet hampers, it's a feast for their eyes and their taste buds.
