There’s something particularly luxurious and festive about a Christmas hamper, and being fans of all that is luxurious and festive, the iLPH team were keen to sample this year’s Sweet Things Christmas Hamper.
Mince pies, award-winning brownies and hot chocolate, loose-leaf tea, jam, salted caramel truffles and award-winning granola, packed into a great-quality traditional picnic hamper, it would make a lovely gift; at £49.50 it isn’t cheap but you certainly get value for money.
We gathered an enthusiastic and discerning group of tasters aged from thirteen to seventy-something; click on the gallery below to see their comments.
