Are you looking for something to send to a loved one during these troubling times? Maybe you’re wanting to gift a little package of useful items to someone you can’t physically spend time with or even hug at the moment? You might even be wanting to assist one of the thousands of small businesses affected by Covid-19? Gift hampers are the perfect idea!

Well Known Brands

There are many opportunities online to shop for gift hampers. Most of the well known retailers are still open and providing deliveries. Let’s take Marks & Spencer as an example. Not only are their products top quality, there is a wide variety of things available to send to your loved ones. Maybe they’re struggling to get their vitamin intake, so a fruit basket would be a great way to look after their health. There are wine hampers, whiskey hampers and even grow your own mojito hampers. There’s also a wellbeing bag which might be ideal in this situation of isolation. It includes empress grey tea and limited edition honey, allowing you to enjoy a cuppa and some self care. Take a look at your favourite retailer to see what gift hampers they have available right now.

Support Small Businesses

Maybe you’d prefer to support a small business during this unprecedented time? Small businesses are the backbone of the country and maybe of them are struggling at the moment. An order from you might make all the difference. There are many small businesses on shopping platform Not On The High Street but you can also shop directly with most of them, ensuring they get all of the profits. From beer hampers to gin and chocolate gifts, there is something for everyone. There are even letterbox sized ones meaning they don’t need to answer the door to collect it. Check out the products for cheese lovers, the mum to be presents and there’s plenty of gift hampers for those with a sweet tooth!

Make Your Own

There are ways of being a little bit more personal during this time. Maybe you know exactly what your loved one would like to receive in the post? If that’s the case, send a box full of treats through the mail. The postal service is still working and its a nice way to stay in touch and connect with people you care about. They’ll have that warm fuzzy feeling when they open up the gift. We’re thinking chocolates, toiletries and a handwritten letter, which is a beautiful thing, especially at the moment. Inject some personality into your gift hampers with a DIY version!

Help A Charity

If you fancy helping out a charity right now, you can buy hampers which give to charity at the same time. Hay Hampers have a Chari-Tea gift which donates £5 to MacMillan Cancer Support with every purchase. You can also help charities directly as many of them have online shops. Gifts can be physical ones or you can ‘buy a donkey’ for someone, so the monetary value of a donkey goes to charity to help needy people. Send the e-card to your loved one with a nice message knowing you’ve both helped someone else.

Send gift hampers to your family members or friends to show them just how much you care.
