The Best Luxury Food Hampers in the UK


Food hampers are the perfect gift for any occasion or celebration, and I’ve put together a guide of my favourite luxury food hampers in the UK.

I think food hampers make the best gifts, it’s always so exciting to open them and see what delicious goodies you’ve been sent! And with so many options to choose from, they take the stress out of gifting!

I’ve chosen a selection of sweet and savoury hampers, so there’s certainly something for everyone! Have a scroll to get inspired..

Betty's describe this as being filled with 'their choicest Yorkshire and continental specialities' and the contents include Bettys Cafe Blend Coffee and their Yorkshire Tea Fruitcake.

My favourite thing in this hamper is the florentines; Betty's make the best rich and chewy florentines!

Paxton & Whitfield have been sourcing the best cheese for over 225 years, so you know this hamper is going to have the best cheese selection.

This hamper includes 5 of their signature house cheeses: Cheddar Pounder PDO, stilton, smoked ceodre, Dorset goat and Celtic soft. An amazing selection!

The cheese is packed into a wooden crate, and this also includes a selection of preserves, biscuits and sweet treats to pair with the cheese.
