Hurrah, it's hamper season – the time for keepsake wicker baskets, beautifully brimming with covetable delights. At Harvey Nichols, hampers transcend the pantry to wellbeing and beauty offerings, including the finest skincare and gentlemen's grooming. For those seeking something more traditional, select from gourmet gifts, fine wines, Champagne and exclusive, stylishly packaged spirits. 

For the cocktail connoisseur: Cocktail Cabinet Hamper

Keep the home bar fully stocked with The Christmas Cocktail Hamper, curated with everything one might need to shake up a storm this festive season. Try your hand at a negroni, martini or a not-so-classic G&T, mixed using Harvey Nichols’ light and fruity Damson Gin Liqueur. There are also plenty of garnishes and nibbles, including moreish green olives stuffed with pimento. On a similar merry note, the Bartender Hamper features a handpicked selection of Harvey Nichols’ bestselling wines and exclusive spirits.

For the perfect party: Party Starter Hamper

Set Christmas off with a stress-free pop with the Party Starter Hamper hamper. Begin with a blood orange and clove negroni aperitif, followed by fizz, then move on to crisp white wine. There is also small-batch gin mixed with premium flavoured tonic waters and a selection of sweet and savoury nibbles.

For a sweet tooth: Really Chocolatey hamper

Some get their kicks from Champagne. For others, it's cocoa. The Really Chocolatey Hamper is laden with puddings, panettone, biscuits, silky fudge and naughty nibbles, to satisfy even the most discerning sweet tooth this Christmas. These exclusive Harvey Nichols’ treats look just as smart as the black wicker basket in which they are packaged.
