Christmas is a challenging time. There is so much to do and there are so many people to buy gifts for as a way of saying thank you for all their wonderful support during the year.
I like to give practical presents, not things that will be re-gifted or left sitting on a shelf in the cupboard. It’s important to me to know that my gifts will not only be loved but they’ll actually be used.
Forget candied almonds and random bottles of sauce that will never be finished – I love to give and receive hampers that are filled with products that I would take for myself in a heartbeat.
And I don’t have to scour the depths of the Internet or drive across the country to find these things – I can get them from my local Woolies.
These are some great hamper ideas that won’t break the budget. Oh and we can guarantee these items won’t last longer than New Year.
