Christmas Gift Hampers from Real Food Direct – An Award Winning Independent Company Renowned for its Ethical Business Ethos
The big talking point this Christmas in some circles is not just how much should we spend but should we be buying Christmas gifts at all? The PC brigade would have us all leading dull austere lives, or so it seems. For my part I think it’s good for the soul to give presents and it’s great to receive them, this is the tradition of Christmas.
But having said that, maybe the politically correct “thought police” do have a point. I don’t subscribe to their preferred martyrdom at Christmas but like many other people I do wonder at the senseless giving and acquiring of so many useless gifts. I feel like screaming when I get yet another scented candle in a box….. So here is my idea, instead of budgeting to allocate a spend level to all the various members of a close group of friends say your sister’s family or neighbours that you socialise with, amalgamate the individual budgets and buy one big family present.
So why not buy them a Christmas gift hamper? “It will cost a fortune” you might say. No it won’t… once you have combined all the individual budgets you will probably save money. It makes so much sense and scores maximum points on all fronts. Christmas gift hampers are really useful and sustainable; you eat and drink all the contents, and the wicker hampers are re-usable. There is something for everybody and most of the items will be genuine treats… things you wouldn’t normally buy in the weekly shop.
Of dramatic importance is that it’s very, very exciting to receive a hamper. Hampers are really special and excellent gifts to both give and receive. Only the best people receive Christmas gift hampers! Perhaps a little elitist but you will have so thrilled the family that receives such a great Christmas gift. And that feeling is really good for the giver as well.
