There is nothing more personal than a handmade gift. A gift from your kitchen lets the recipient know you care enough to go to the trouble of preparing something special, just for them.

Whether you’re creating a mega Christmas hamper in a picnic basket with wine and napkins or a single item beautifully wrapped for a neighbour I have the recipes for you. My Christmas recipe roundup is full of delicious idea’s.

Before we take a look at the recipes, make sure you think about how you will present your finished product!

Christmas Hamper Presentation Ideas

Presenting your homemade gifts beautifully is a skill, but it’s well worth going to a little bit of extra trouble for a gorgeous finished product.

Most of the time you can find the items you need at a discount store or if your crafty and op shop, so lovely presentation doesn’t need to be expensive.

A container for your goodies

When you’re packaging your hamper you will need a sturdy base to display your treats. This may be as simple as a piece of cardboard for a small hamper or a re-purposed picnic basket for a larger collection.

Don’t forget to look at garage sales and op shops. Even if the baskets or buckets have seen better days, a can of matt white spray paint can make it look rustic but beautiful.

  • Baskets of all sizes and shapes
  • Mini Buckets
  • Mini Wooden Boxes
  • Cardboard boxes
  • Noodle boxes
  • A piece of rigid cardboard

Elevating & Displaying

If you think about commercially prepared hampers they always use a filler. Filler is used so you showcase your treats in the exact position you want them to stay. It also allows you to add height and levels to the display. Using filler removes empty, boring spaces and ties together your gift.

  • Shredded coloured paper in your theme colour
  • wooden wool (looks good with white baskets)
  • A new tea towel or white cheesecloth crumpled into position behind the treats.
  • tissue paper or cellophane crumpled

Wrapping Your Christmas Hamper

How you wrap your hamper will depend on the style and size of your gift. In past years I have bought pretty reusable shopping bags and place the completed hamper in the bag, then tied it up with a big bow.

  • Clear cellophane
  • Christmas fabric
  • Unbleached Calico or Cheesecloth
  • Reusable shopping bag (I prefer a plain colour)

The finishing Touch

Once your hamper is wrapped it’s time to really pretty it up.

  • Handmade Name Tags
  • Pretty bows (you can use strips of Christmas fabric to DIY)
  • Hair Scrunchy (if you’ve gathered together cellophane or fabric)
  • A Christmas ornaments attached to the hamper near the gift tag
