Homemade Christmas Hamper Ideas

If you’ve opted to give homemade Christmas hampers this year, here’s how to ensure your presents stand out under the tree…

Pick a theme for each person, and run with it! Not only is this an extremely personal approach to gift-giving, but it is also incredibly simple and cost-effective.

Now, we can all think of at least one person we know who has a major sweet tooth.  So, what better gift could they receive than a basket full of sweet goodies?
Simply grab a hamper of your choice – this can be as big or as big or small as you wish – just make sure if you’re going big, you’ve got enough ideas to fill it. At Piglets Pantry, our Festive Range features a selection of tasty Christmas-themed bakes. Not only are they stunning to look at, but they’re also delicious too!

 From our Festive Brownie Tree Selection Box to our Reindeer Cupcake Box, fill your DIY Christmas gift baskets with a selection of fool-proof festive favourites.

When you’ve decided on the perfect combination for your basket, it’s time to decorate it.

You’re going to need: 

  • Your filled basket
  • Printed cellophane (tripled the size of the basket)
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Tag

 If arts and crafts aren’t your strong point, don’t worry. Simply follow our step-by-step guide below to create a gorgeous handmade gift basket in no time. 

How to Assemble the Perfect Gift Basket:

  1. Roll the cellophane out onto a table, covering enough surface area to match the size of your basket.
  2. Place the basket in the middle of the sheet of cellophane, centring it so that there’s approximately 30cm of cellophane in the front and back of the basket.
  3. When you’ve found the measurements, cut the cellophane to size, making sure all four sides are even.
  4. Lift up the long sides of the cellophane and fold the short sides in. 
  5. Fold the front edges toward the back and the back edges towards the front. 
  6. Hold the cellophane at the top of the basket in your hand and pull it tight. 
  7. Tie your ribbon around the neck of the basket. 
  8. Add a tag and you’re done!
