“ Luxury Christmas hampers from Harrods. „
Harrods without doubt offer some of the best Hampers available. I have received there Hampers and also sent Hampers. I have to say that I also use Ripley Hampers as there quality is as good as Harrods but with the smaller price tag.I think in business sending a Harrods hamper send a message that you are doing well and often this is something many companys do to give this message.Christmas time is the most popular time of the year I would imagine for Hamper sales and this reminds me I need to get online and order some for my clients and family.The question is do I buy from <a href="http://www.ripleyhampers.co.uk" >Ripley Hampers</a> or Harrods?
I find the dearth of selection something of a pain. The first thing that I can say is that I find Harrods hampers very attractive but quite expensive for what they contain. Marks & Spencer were fine in days past but they seem to be cutting corners whilst increasing prices and introducing cardboard boxes rather than traditional wicker hampers - pace, M&S..I think yours are still ok value and I do know what wicker hampers cost. As to what's available from the supermarkets, well.....there's not much to talk about, is there. Here's an idea: go to Kitchen Spoils or some other place and buy a cheap wicker hamper...they DO have them, you know...be a little inventive and enterprising and decorate the inside yourself. Buy your goodies from high street shops and supermarkets and, securing the hamper properly, get Parcel Force to deliver it. Savings are to be made this way and you have the added fillip of having done it all, yourself. Your recipient gets what YOU want them to have and you detrmine content and price.
Nearly every Christmas we get a Harrods hamper from a company my dad deals with. There is always much excitement about opening it and seeing what the contents are, and there is also something quite exciting about it being from Harrods. However I would not particularly recommend them. As far as I know they are just set contents in the hampers and we always end up with things that we will never use. I suppose they do make nice business gifts at christmas if you can afford to send them, but for the average person I think you could get something better from M&S, which is better value and dosn't have some of the things in it that are definately an aquired taste such as pheasant pate which was in the last one we got. Also the brandy butter from Harrods is nowhere near as nice as supermarket brands that I have tried. The christmas pudding is rather small and again I have tasted much better. Obviously for gifts to other people hampers from sainsbury's etc don't have the same ring to it as one that says Harrods, but in the long run if the hamper is nicely packaged and has good quality food in it then I don't think it matters too much where it comes from.
