For the chocolate lovers…

If your ideal Christmas starts (and most likely ends) with a festive dessert then this Hotel Chocolat Merry Christmas Everyone hamper is the one for you.

For those who want a night before Christmas treat… 

Snuggle up by the fire or in front of the TV and count down to Christmas Day with Bettys Night Before Christmas Gift Box. Including all-butter spiced Christmas and chocolate shortbread, as well as a bag of luxurious hot chocolate made with Venezuelan cocoa beans and Madagascan vanilla, you’ve got everything you need for a cosy night in. The milk chocolate merry men are great for the kids (or any adults with a sweet-tooth) and the chocolate-filled Bettys bauble will be a great last-minute addition to your tree.

For a quintessential afternoon…

There is nothing better than a high-quality afternoon tea, and Fodder are giving us the gift of not only that, but the chance to celebrate Yorkshire producers too. Their Yorkshire Afternoon Tea Hamper includes everything from Harrogate Cake Company’s celebration fruit cake to Botham’s tea biscuits and Taylors of Yorkshire gold tea.

For those wanting to create their own festive feast…

Although Cooplands don’t offer a ready-made Christmas hamper, you can easily make one up from their fantastic range of goodies on offer, both online and at their bakeries across the North East and Yorkshire. From deep-filled and brandy mince pies to traditional stollen bites, truffle logs and jolly gingerbread elves, it’s the perfect way to mix and match across their whole range of festive foods for your own perfect hamper.

Breakfast in Bed Hamper, £90 Fenwick

For those who love a lie-in…

Fenwick are no strangers to luxurious foodie hampers and this year they’re giving us the gift of feasting in the most comfortable way – in bed! Start the day off right this Christmas with Scrumshus's artisanal granola and spreads worthy of your favourite daily bread – think Seville orange marmalade, classic strawberry jam or golden runny honey. This luxurious hamper also includes Brew Tea English breakfast tea bags and a 75cl bottle of Barroco Prosecco Rosé.
