Home / News / How to choose the perfect birthday hamper for someone special

Birthdays are an opportunity to express gratitude, praise growth and celebrate your friends and family. A birthday hamper is an excellent gift for your loved ones on their special day. Hamper gifts come in all shapes and sizes so that you can guarantee the perfect hamper.

The tradition of giving gifts on birthdays gained popularity in the 19th and 20th centuries, alongside the increased investment in children’s upbringings. Nowadays, gift-giving is commonplace in birthday celebrations regardless of age. Hampers are more than just a gift. In fact, they are multiple gifts in one, displayed beautifully to bring out a smile at any birthday celebration.

Why choose hamper gifts?

There are many gift options out there, but nothing beats the excitement of opening a beautifully curated birthday hamper. Hamper gifts offer an element of surprise, so your special someone can feel spoiled as they discover all the goodies in their present.

Birthday hampers can include anything from toys to pampering products, but food hampers in the UK are some of the most popular gift hampers. Luxury food hampers mean your loved one can enjoy some of the finer things in life.

Food hampers can also be as expensive or inexpensive as you would like. Just as there is a range of hamper types available, there is also a range of prices. No matter your budget, you can find a gift hamper that will be incredibly pleasing to the person you buy it for.

So, how do you choose the best gift hamper for someone close to your heart?

How to choose the perfect birthday hamper

With such a range of birthday hampers available, it can be challenging to select the perfect one. When deciding, you should consider your loved one, think about what they want, check all the contents included, and shop around.

Know who you are buying for

It is easy to get swept up when browsing gift hampers, but it is essential to remember who you are buying for. While one hamper looks incredible to you, you should consider if it fits your loved one’s taste. Consider their favourite colour, food and drink to ensure your gift is as enjoyable as it is meaningful.

Check the contents of your gift hamper

Birthday hampers look incredibly pleasing, but check what is included in the hamper you are purchasing. Think about the person you are buying for. Food and drink hampers are a superb gift if the recipient enjoys its contents. Your loved one will remember your thoughtful gift whenever they try a new snack from their basket.

If your loved one has allergies, it is important at this stage to ensure that the gift hamper doesn’t include anything that could cause a reaction. The only reaction you want is a smile!

Quality over quantity

It is important to select high-quality items that the recipient will genuinely appreciate. A few well-chosen products make a much bigger impact than a hamper filled with lots of products of lesser quality.


A themed hamper can make your gift feel more curated and thoughtful. You can show how well you know your loved one by theming your hamper around their favourite hobby, foods or even colour.

Treat your loved one

Food hampers are a great way to treat someone to luxury treats they wouldn’t normally purchase. Buying something your loved one wouldn’t buy themself can make your gift truly memorable.

Don’t settle

Don’t settle for the first hamper you click on. Every hamper is completely different. Make sure to shop around and find the gift hamper that will brighten up your mum’s, dad’s, partner’s, sibling’s or friend’s birthday the most.
