FAQs about picnic hampers

In this section, we'll answer your top questions about our picnic hampers.

What do you put in a picnic hamper as a gift?

If you're going to give someone a picnic hamper as a gift, we recommend making sure the hamper contains wine or champagne, nuts, cheese, paste, olives, crackers, sun-dried tomatoes, wafers, sweet nuts, and chocolate.

Ideally, there should be roughly one serving of each item per person. That way, no one misses out.

What is in a typical picnic basket spread?

A typical picnic basket contains an assortment of food items that one can enjoy at a beautiful picnic in the sun. Typically, picnic baskets contain salads, cheese, bread rolls, potato rolls, meats, seasonal fruits, marinated olives, dips, couscous salad, corn, biscuits, chocolates, and wine or champagne.

The exact foods you include will depend on the tastes of those attending the picnic.

What should I make for a romantic picnic?

If you're holding a romantic picnic dinner or lunch, we recommend preparing a small selection of these tasty (and trendy) dishes:

  • Charred zucchini and truffle honey vegetables
  • Kipfler potatoes
  • Charred asparagus with toasted breadcrumbs
  • Cheese and piccalilli tart
  • Caramelised onion sausage rolls
  • Cheese pasties
  • A dozen prawns and a homemade cocktail sauce
  • A dozen oysters with homemade butter and herb sauce
  • Red velvet cupcakes
  • Cheese and grilled veggie skewers

One of our lovely hampers will also pair well with these recipes – particularly the Classic Red Wine & Cheese Hamper. This gorgeous hamper features a bottle of Mr Riggs Sulis Langhorne Creek Cabernet, plus two types of wafers from Avec du Fromage, two pastes from Maggie Beer, and two kinds of gourmet cheese from Maggie Beer.

What should I pack for a family picnic?

If you're preparing for a family picnic, we recommend packing the following items:

  • Roast chicken and cured meat for sandwiches
  • Fresh bread rolls or bread
  • Potato salad
  • Fresh fruit (sliced into bite-sized pieces)
  • A spring salad
  • Fresh prawns
  • Olive oil and bread
  • Nuts
  • Sliced carrots, cucumber, and capsicum
  • Biscuits
  • Caramels or chocolates

Do you offer any pre-packed picnic baskets?

We offer a wide selection of hampers with all the cheese, pastes, crackers, nuts, chocolates, and wines and champagnes you need for a picnic. Our hampers come in a high-quality gift box instead of a picnic basket. So we do offer picnic baskets – just without the basket itself.

If you're looking for a specific picnic box recommendation, our Luxury Cheese & Chocolate With Chandon Hamper is our top choice. It's got Maggie Beer cheese, pastes, crackers, chocolates, and chardonnay.

Where can you deliver picnic hampers to?

We can deliver picnic hampers to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Darwin, and many other places around Australia. So, whether you're planning a Sydney picnic or a picnic anywhere else, we've got you covered.

It takes us 1-12 business days to deliver each hamper, and shipping is faster in metro areas. We also offer express shipping if you need your hamper in three business days or less.

What do your ready-made picnic hampers come with?

Depending on the picnic hamper you select, you'll get Maggie Beer cheese, crackers, wafers, chocolates, nuts, wine or champagne, savoury foods, and sweet treats.

All our hampers come with:

  • Free standard shipping Australia-wide
  • Comprehensive track and trace
  • A high-quality keepsake box with a gold ribbon
  • A premium card that you can customise with a sweet message

Do you offer any picnic hampers for two?

Yes! Many of our hampers have a smaller selection of items that two lucky people can enjoy together. One of our favourite choices for two is the Gourmet Bites Hamper. It features beer nuts, two types of wafers, quince paste, tomato shiraz and sultana chutney, Crème Brûlée roasted peanuts, and burnt toffee popcorn and cocoa-dusted cashews.
