I love the idea of a hamper as a gift, but often find the pre made ones have lots of items that I never use and so just end up sat in the cupboard until they go past their best before date. A few years ago I started putting together my own hampers using products I know the recipient will use and love. Hampers are great fun to make and allow you to really personalise them for the recipient.
Ciao Gusto challenged me to put together a hamper for £50 from their amazing range of products available from Ocado. I’ve been using Ocado for my weekly shop for the last 9 years and cannot rate them highly enough.
My Ciao Gusto Hamper
My hamper would be perfect for the person who likes a bit of everything. The contents were chosen as I imagined a wine and coffee lover who likes to munch on healthy snacks. I think I managed to showcase the great range of Ciao Gusto products as well as the quality of brands available. The monster pack of coffee beans feature because I think there is no better way to start the day than with a freshly ground coffee, then I chose healthy fruit, nut, meat and humous snacks to much on, olive oil to cook with and a glass or two of great wine to end the day. It’s an all day hamper, with a treat for any time of day!
Would you like my hamper?
The hamper contains:
Cured meats – Negroni
Olive oil – Filippo Berio
Nut and dehydrated fruits – Noberasco
Coffee – Lavazza
I was very tempted by the lovely vinegars and pasta sauces available too, but I just couldn’t resist the big bag of coffee. For me, a good coffee is just the best treat ever!
