Christmas hampers

    Hey everyone

    I'm looking to buy 2 Christmas hampers. It's for a good mates of mine family. They treat me like their own and have always looked after me.

    Basically I'm looking for 1 hamper full of drink, spirits,whiskey and beer for the adults. And one full of chocolate and sweets for their kids.

    I can only find sweets ones online but can't find any mix of the alcohol one. My budget is 200 for both. So 50 for kids and 150 for adults seen as drink is more expensive. Can anyone help ? Also is this a good gift? Or to over the top?

    Thanks guys.

    You're actually better off, buying empty hamper baskets, hitting Tesco and fill them up yourself. It'll be much cheaper than any of the hampers you could buy online.

    Any decent off licence would do up a hamper for you if you ask them. But putting one together yourself is a great idea too. Plenty of value to be had in the supermarkets.

    Try supervalue they'll make up hampers for you.

    This is what I would do.

    You can get the baskets in any of the euro shops for €5 for medium sized and I think €8 for a larger one. Come with a nice bit of straw, plastic to wrap round it and a bow to tie at top too.

    Fraction of the price but also lovely as it's personal

    I'm gonna second the Supervalu suggestion. If you have a branch near you, drop in and they will sort you out for sure.
