Buying ready-made Xmas hampers for loved ones can be a time-saving way to put a smile on someone’s face whilst saving yourself some hard earned cash – and with the holiday season rapidly approaching, now’s a great time to get to grips with the types of hampers available online. Although you might not need to order right now (unless you’re planning on storing your gift hampers ready for the festive season), there’s really no harm in looking at what online hamper making companies have on offer.
Some baskets will come complete with decorations and accessories, while others might allow enough room for improvement instead. If you’re keen to add a few finishing touches to your chosen hampers, here are a few tips and techniques to ensure that you maximise the festive-feel, without having to overspend in the process.
Choose your colour scheme wisely
The holiday period is filled with vibrant reds, greens and whites to name just a few tones – and if you’re really hoping to have your hampers emanate a little more festive joy, then be sure to keep to these schemes as much as possible. Fortunately the festive period isn’t short of decorations and trinkets, so why not head down to your local craft store and pick up a few red bows, a stick of holly (or mistletoe) and then get on with the decoration from the comfort of your own home?
Imagery can go a long way
During the festive season it’s not uncommon for product manufacturers and suppliers to introduce holiday-themed imagery to their goods. If you are planning on buying your gift hampers online then why not try to include a few snowman, Santa Claus, or reindeer type products? You will undoubtedly find tins of chocolates and biscuits with these types of designs, as well as a variety of festive-goodies that can be purchased and packed into your hamper by the company that you’ve chosen to buy from.
Let your recipients know that Santa’s on his way
Imagery can go a long way, as can colour schemes – but what sound is most commonly associated with the Christmas period? Jingling bells of course. Your hamper company might offer to add a selection of bells to your hamper at no extra cost, or if you ask them specifically, but just in case they don’t; why not take matter into your own hands? You could pick up a pair of bells from a local store, or order them online instead – whichever method is easiest for you.
