What greater pleasure could there be than to have Christmas delivered to your door? A sturdy wicker hamper filled with Christmas puddings, chocolate truffles, champagne, Stilton and Christmas crackers arriving on your doorstep is the very definition of luxury – especially when the hamper in question is stamped with the F&M logo.
Fortnum’s huge selection of festive hampers caters for every taste and every budget; from modest little baskets filled with tea, biscuits and preserves to gourmet feasts of champagne and salmon, and five-star, full-sized banquets, which include everything from the aperitifs to the after-dinner mints. Every item is carefully chosen by our buyers to ensure an exceptional experience, and every hamper will provide just that – a fantastic Christmas, packed into a basket and sent to wherever your celebrations may be.
We take quite a bit of trouble to make sure that there is a hamper for everyone, including lots of smaller hampers that are tailored to very particular tastes. For example, our Fortnum’s Taster Hamper (£55) offers wine, chocolate, preserves, tea and biscuits, with a Christmas pudding added for good measure; and our Champagne Tea Box (£50) will appeal to anyone who enjoys both of these gourmet pleasures. We have a Children’s Christmas Hamper (£45) full of sweets, a Ladies’ Favourites Basket (£50) filled with scented soaps and pretty confectionery and a Christmas Cheese & Wine Box (£100) which offers the simplest of feasts.
But for many people, Christmas is a time to indulge, so we have plenty of hampers at the other end of the extravagance scale. For example, the Christmas Feast (£500) is the hamper that will transform your Christmas into a truly unforgettable occasion; full of Christmas essentials, such as smoked salmon, champagne and Christmas pudding, every item within is the finest that we can find. The Windsor (£1000) is even more exciting, offering such gourmet luxuries as black truffle oil, organic Stilton, royal fillet of salmon and our finest Darjeeling, not to mention a magnum of vintage champagne. Finally, The Imperial (£5000) is the once-in-a-lifetime experience, offering a feast that defies description; it is simply the best of the best.
The Christmas Feast Hamper, £500
Certain essentials are required for a proper Christmas feast, such as smoked salmon, Stilton, cranberry sauce and Christmas pudding. This inspiring hamper provides the very best of these festive staples as well as Fortnum’s coffee, chocolate biscuits and Turkish Delight, and a few exciting extras that we’ve added for good measure. These include Fortnum’s London Dry Gin, which uses Seville oranges as a key botanical; our newly listed and very special Tokaji; and a caddy of Old Silver Teapot tea, an historic blend discovered in our archives and revived for our tea-loving customers.
This is a mere taste of the delights Fortnum's has to offer this Christmas. To view the entire range here or in-store.
