Want to make someone feel really special this Christmas? You can't go wrong with a tailor-made basket of goodies...
Before you start buying items for your hamper, decide how much you'd like to spend and stick to it. It's easy to get carried away, but you don't want the basket to look cramped. Be selective and remember that it's OK to leave space between items. Less is more!
For example, if you're putting together a gift for a coffee lover, fill your hamper with products that complement your theme. Chocolate and coffee is a good pairing, so a Tesco Finest Belgian Chocolate Nut Tray and a tin of Tesco Finest Luxury Belgian biscuits would be great choices
Ambient products such as jams, chutneys or a mini panettone will keep well in a hamper. If you want to include gifts like cheese, make sure they're well wrapped and put them in at the last minute
To make your hamper look good, go for pretty packaging and interesting shapes – like a gorgeous tin of Tesco Finest Mince Pie Filled Cookies. Scrunched-up newspaper on the bottom will give height, then cover with a shredded filler, and place the largest item in the middle
Make their favourite tipple the hamper star
Store these well before adding at the last minute
Pick something delicious that looks good too
Make your hamper beautiful with a few accessories
