What better way to celebrate a birthday, Christmas, the birth of a new baby, a new job or just to say thank you or I love you than to give them a chocolate hamper? The only problem is that you can spend an absolute fortune on chocolate hampers very easily indeed! Below I’ve searched a list of chocolate and gift shops to see what they’ve got, but you could also try out, other shops such as The Chocolate Cafe which does luxury and bespoke chocolate hampers at very reasonable prices.
Fairtrade Chocolate Hampers
If you wanted to a Fairtrade chocolate hamper then the best place, with the biggest selection I’ve found is Ethical Superstore who have got a good variety of hampers, some specifically about chocolate, and some with just chocolate in as part of a feature – such as the Fairtrade Breakfast Gift Hamper, Tea & Hot Chocolate Lover’s Hamper. But they also do a Hot Chocolate Lover’s Kit, a Divine Extravagance kit.
Orangic Chocolate Hampers
If you wanted to buy an organic chocolate hamper then Green & Blacks is a good bet as you can create a bespoke hamper where you can choose your own chocolate to go in as well as organic cider, organic rose Champagne, organic red wine, white wine, hot chocolate, a G&B’s apron, organic beer etc. If you didn’t want to create one, but choose choose from their selection they’ve got a Brithday chocolate collection, a Chocolate lovers one, a bar’s and beer hamper and a chocolate and wine gift bag. Also have a look at The Organic Gift Hamper Company and Cocoalocao.
Chocolate Hamper Buying Tips
Here’s a few things to think about when buying chocolate gift hampers:
- If the person you’re buying for would appreciate fair-trade or organic then make sure you check them out, there’s certainly enough selection on the internet to find something fantastic.
- Work out how much you really want to spend as you may be able to spend less than £20 on a chocolate hamper, but if you spend £120 on the Godiva Luxury hamper, you really need to know that you’re getting value for money!
- Check for any dietary requirements, you wouldn’t want to spend £50 or £60 on a chocolate hamper and find out that everything has traces of nuts or something else in and they can’t enjoy it.
- Also be aware of delivery dates, not all of them can be delviered next day, so make sure you order in plenty of time.
