I’m ahead of the game this year with Christmas planning but there are still lots of things to do, especially as I want things to actually be ‘planned’. What I mean by that is that I so often underestimate the time it takes to think about what people might really like to eat or receive as a gift. I want to make my own foodie gifts and hampers for those very close at hand and send lovely hampers for those not so near. I know that the right choices will be enjoyed so much more than a gift-packed ‘smellies’ box bought because I don’t know what else to get and have run out of time.
With all that in mind I was really excited to have found a fantastic Hamper Emporium which delivers free throughout Australia. My son and his girlfriend moved out there two years ago and like so many others with family in Australia I struggle to find them something for Christmas. I tried sending presents but the cost of sending even the smallest, lightest items is ridiculously expensive. I often resort to transferring money which is great as they can get what they like but it feels meaningless sometimes. The Hamper Emporium has a fantastic range of Hamper choices for all occasions and I was genuinely happy to find that I can send them something that they would enjoy. The great thing is that the delivery is completely free so you know that the price on the Hamper is exactly what you will pay.
I decided to try out a birthday surprise Hamper for my son who is celebrating his 30th birthday shortly. It’s times like that I hate him being so far away. I know he has his girlfriend with him and lots of great new friends but it’s not the same as being able to give him a hug and a special gift on the day. I chose him a Beers of Australia Hamper because when I went to visit he’d taken me on a tour at Margaret River where we visited vineyards and tasted wines and beers. We also took a trip to Little Creatures in Freemantle to sample one of his favourites. I loved being in Australia with him and his girlfriend and the memories are strong so to send something so meaningful felt amazing. When he received the Hamper he said, “It’s great! It was amazing to come home to such a fun parcel. All my favourite things yippee!!!!”
I was able to add a personal message and the quality of the Hamper and contents was excellent. The Hamper Emporium has a variety of Christmas Hampers all with free shipping Australia wide. So if you are like me and have family or friends in Australia, I would recommend you take a look. Even if they can’t be with you to share your Christmas cake you can share the experience of enjoying something delicious with love and best wishes.
