Gift hampers are not just for Christmas. If you’re looking for extra special thank you gifts for your bridal party, then a wedding hamper is the ultimate choice. Here’s our pick of the best luxury ready-made hampers and some great DIY hampers you could put together yourself.
For the chief bridesmaid
It makes a pretty cool change to the usual bridesmaid’s gift of jewellery to wear on the day and can be enjoyed for days, weeks (or hours…) after the big day (depending on appetite!) Your girls will love receiving a Sweet Treats hamper of chocolates, cake and biscuits. Who wouldn’t?
For your best man
The best man deserves a special thank you for all his help organising the stag do (and keeping the groom alive), getting him and the weddings rings to the ceremony on time, not to mention his stand-up routine when he made a speech! Reward him accordingly with a Beers and Bites hamper and make sure he saves you all some.
For your parents
It’s more useful and imaginative than a bunch of flowers, and this way you can say a very special thank you to both sets of parents with a wedding hamper they can enjoy together at home. They will be thrilled and if you keep it a surprise until the day there may just be some tears (in a good way!)
Make your own wedding hampers
It’s a lot of fun to create your own gift hampers and it’s simple to do. All you need is a small basket or crate, some ribbon and cellophane then you can go wild finding things to fill them with that you know they will love.
Here’s what you need and below are our top picks of what to fill them with. The best thing is you can order everything online and then put it all together yourself in no time. Genius.
