15 Ways to style your hamper for Christmas
Sweet Treat Hamper:
If you know someone who has a love for all things chocolate, then a chocolate making hamper is a great gift. Fill jars and cellophane bags with Candy Melts and edible toppings and then decorate with a few embellishments. You could even have a go at making your own chocolatey sweet treat to include in the hamper to keep them going during their own chocolate making session.

Festive Frost Hamper:
If your craft talents cover many bases, capitalise on this and fill your hampers with lots of lovely personal handmade items. If your recipient loves a certain colour or colour palette why not theme your hampers content around this? Ice blues and silvers are a big trend this Christmas so I decided to create lots of different makes within this colour palette for my hamper below.

Christmas Hamper for Two:
It can often be tricky when it comes to buying a Christmas gift for couples- do you buy them something individually? What if you spend more on one than the other? Well, why not gift a hamper for two? Problem solved! Simply fill with two of everything, two mice pies, two handmade crackers, two delicious hot chocolate lollipops to settle down with on Boxing day and so on…the list is endless!

Night Before Christmas Hamper:
By Christmas Eve the excitement for the big day has reached it’s peak, as every child up and down the country anticipates what Santa will be leaving under the tree.
This Christmas eve hamper is full of goodies to help keep the kids occupied and also help with the decorating too! There are some carrots for Santa’s Reindeer, a mince pie for the man himself, a few pre-Christmas sweet treats, and as a small gift to open Christmas eve night. If you’re struggling to find the perfect stocking, why not get the kids to make their own, simply grab a selection of craft essentials and a blank stocking base to make up a stocking craft pack.

Simple Bow Hamper:
Seal your hamper gift with a proud red bow, sure to look gorgeous under any tree. Hampers are a great way of reducing waste at Christmas, as they are reusable year to year and easily customisable. How about using chalkboard paint to decorate hanging ceramic decorations, that will then be reusable in themselves?
Crochet Label Hamper:
Go for a trendy look with DIY crochet reindeer, star and Christmas tree tags, tied on with raffia. Afterwards, the recipient can use the crochet tags as Christmas decorations! Two gifts in one!

Modern Scandi Hamper:

Rustic Felt Topper Hamper:
Felt toppers and chalkboard gift tags tied with twine give hampers a rustic look. Using the same toppers and tags throughout ties your gifts together as a set and shows the love and effort put into arranging and packing it all. Best of all, the tags and toppers can be re-used afterwards for other crafty projects!
