My Christmas Hampers

Last year I started making original, economic and eco-friendly presents for Christmas. My solution: making soe cute Christmas hampers full of treats and delicacies. They do not cost even 10% the price of the famous Fortnum & Masons’ hampers, but they look just as nice and most importantly – they are unique! They require a bit of work but if you are organised, once you have made one, you have made ten. Please find below the details of the contents of my hampers. For the materials, you will find everything you need on amazon: kraft paper, decorative cellotape, ribbon, bottles, jars, etc.
