Harrods Christmas Hampers • A beautiful indulgence
When we were younger we always celebrated Christmas with my cousins. On Boxing Day or on Christmas Day itself, we would either head to Oxford, or impatiently wait for them to arrive at our house and welcome them, and my Granny and Grandpa, with a rousing "Compliments of the Season!"
My Auntie and Mum took it in turns to host, with my Granny putting together a beautiful hamper, mostly full of goodies that she'd collected in her larder (some of which may have been past their sell by dates), as their contribution to Christmas. I thought this was such a lovely gesture and there is something about a hamper that feels so luxurious and special.
So it was a complete treat to find one of Harrods Christmas Hampers arrive at our door.
Even the unveiling to discover what's inside made my husband ooh and aah like we were watching a firework's display. I love that the lid explains exactly how you feel. Like lifting the lid, is akin to opening the doors to the Harrods Food Hall.
There is everything you could need for a pre Christmas afternoon tea party or a perfect sweet round off to Christmas Day.
Tea, coffee, wine and Champagne to serve with 2 delicious cakes, biscuits and the most sumptuous box of chocolates I have ever eaten.
There's sweet chutney and jam to drizzle over the essential cheese and biscuits as well as Apple and Damson jelly and mustard for the Christmas table.
You feel spoilt.
This was a serious after school treat! I have saved a few of the goodies for Christmas Day as I am hosting for my family!
Thank you so much Harrods, your hampers are the ultimate Christmas present!
