Factors To Consider When Buying The Best Xmas Hampers Australia

Gift Recipient / Size & Type Of Hamper

First and foremost when considering the best Christmas hamper to buy for your particular gift recipient consider what their preferences are. Do they prefer sweet or savoury foods? Are they a social drinker? Do they prefer wine, beer or spirits?

This information will enable you to determine whether the best Christmas hamper for them will be a chocolate hamper, a fruit hamper, a mixed food hamper, wine hamper, a beer hamper, a spirit hamper, a coffee hamper or some other type of hamper.

Also consider whether you are gifting the hamper to one person, their whole family or a team in a workplace. This will impact the size of the hamper to choose and the variety of hamper as well.

Hamper Packaging

Christmas hampers are generally bulky items, holding numerous products inside them. Consider the container the hamper comes in. These are often reusable containers. Choose your Christmas gift hamper wisely so the remaining container can be used by the gift recipient for years to come and will be a keepsake reminder of your generous Christmas gift to them.

For example Christmas food hampers often come packed in wicker picnic baskets while alcoholic Christmas hampers can come packed into an ice bucket.

Timing Of Purchase

The best Christmas hampers sell out fast. Do not wait until the last minute to place your order and buy the Christmas hampers you have selected to gift. I have made this mistake in the past and missed out on buying the hamper I wanted as a result. If you wait too long the best hampers will be sold out and you’ll be have to settle for your second or third or lower choice of hamper to gift. My advice is to place your order in early.

Timing Of Delivery

Christmas time is the busiest time of year for couriers and deliveries. Allow some extra delivery time in case of any potential delays. You don’t want to be late with your gift.

Budget

There are amazing Christmas hampers available for every budget.

Work out what your budget is for each person on your Christmas list before you start looking at which Christmas hamper would be best for them to avoid overspending your Christmas gift budget.

Where To Buy Online Hampers Australia

I tend to do all my Christmas hamper buying research online. I then buy my Christmas hampers online as well. Buying online Christmas hampers means I save myself the time and hassles of driving to a physical store, having to find parking and risking the product being sold out in store.

Christmas hampers can also be quite bulky, heavy and awkward to carry so getting them delivered works best in my opinion. I find online shopping the most convenient.

You can get your Christmas hampers delivered Australia wide to your gift recipient directly, or if you want to personally hand over your gift you can get the hamper delivered to you to then give to your lucky recipient.

Throughout this article I have linked to the best online Christmas hamper Australia sources in each individual category covered.

I hope this Christmas Hamper Buying Guide helps you identify the best Christmas hampers to match your gift recipients’ preferences and make your Christmas gift shopping that little bit easier this year.

Merry Christmas!
