More ideas for homemade hampers, including gifts kids can help make.
Smoked salmon is a treat enjoyed by many at Christmas time, but for something really special, try curing your own Scandi-style Gravadlax. With a selection of seafood and homemade bread and sauces, it'll make an impressive gift to present to your host on Christmas Day.
Bella Italia hamper
For Italophiles, nothing is quite as bellissimo as a box crammed full of goodies such as interesting pasta shapes, good olive oil and balsamic vinegar from the deli. Don your apron and cook up some Mediterranean treats to add to the parcel.
Gifts from the kids
Children love helping in the kitchen, and their homemade biscuits and treats make sweet presents for relatives. A handmade card and colourful decoration for the tree will complete the festive package.
- For a gift that lasts all year long, treat a friend or relative to a subscription to Good Food, olive or Easy Cook.
