Mother’s Day is a perfect occasion for giving the gift of hampers. When buying a hamper from The Hamper Emporium, what you are actually buying is a luxurious embossed hamper filled with only the finest of gourmet foods, the most decadent chocolates and sweets, indulgent MOR Cosmetics products and wines or champagnes that even the fussiest of wine connoisseur’s would approve of. This year, The Hamper Emporium has spent a great deal of time creating a beautiful range of Mother’s Day hampers to suit every style, taste and budget.
‘The Luxury Hamper’ is the ultimate indulgence hamper and is comprised of carefully chosen delights from around the world. The Maison Fossier French Palmier Pastries and Galettes St Remi are the perfect accompaniment to one of the world’s most well-known champagnes, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label. Or perhaps the Dolfin Belgium Chocolate assortment or sumptuous selection of Butlers chocolates, pralines, truffles and fudges would be more to your mother’s liking. Morgan & Albert’s Brown Sugar Candied Peanuts are sure to satisfy even those with the most extreme sweet tooth. Add to this a luxurious MOR Cosmetic Gift Set which includes a Triple-Milled Soap and an Argan Oil rich hand cream with Kashmir Petals scent and Sweet Rose Tulsi Tea from Organic India, and there is nothing more your mother could possible ask for. Our ‘Sweet & White Hamper’ is perfect mothers day hamper, especially for those that enjoy fine white wine. The Devil’s Corner Tasmanian Sauvignon Blanc with its crisp and refreshing delicate sweet fruity undertones marries beautiful with the smooth buttery texture of Elsa’s Story, Lemon Butter Cookies. We should also mention the Virtuoso Biscuits, thin butter biscuits covered in milk, dark and white chocolate made by the experts at Jules Des Trooper and the magnificent Framboise Macarons made by Maison Fossier.
Our Hamper Customer Service Team and Hamper Helpers have already begun taking orders for hundreds of mothers day hampers all around Australia and there are some hampers which have been exceptionally popular thus far. Each and every hamper is being prepared with that extra special touch and attention to detail for the most important woman in all of our lives. We use only the finest of products in our hampers because we believe that everyone deserves a little luxury, and no one is more deserving than your Mum.
Background To Mothers Day
The modern celebration of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when one woman wanted to host a memorial for her departed mother. From there she began a campaign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialisation by the 1920s.
This humble memorial for one woman has now been adopted worldwide and it is celebrated in all corners of the globe. The tradition of offering a gift, card, or remembrance toward mothers, grandmothers, aunts, step mothers, new mothers and expecting mothers on mother's day is one that has continued and grown in strength each and every year.
