Christmas hampers for foodies
We’re sorry. We did it. We mentioned the c-word. In September. But we couldn’t help it; the nights are drawing in and there’s a definite nip in the air. Snuggly blankets and sheepskin slippers are calling our name, and our thoughts keep drifting towards roaring fires, lazy suppers that consist of little but cheese, and an endless supply of chocolate.
So with that in mind, we’ve rounded up the best Christmas hampers for foodies from Barbury Hill. The hampers we’d be overjoyed to find under the tree on Christmas morning, and to enjoy throughout the day with loved ones.
After a large Christmas lunch with all the trimmings, a simple supper is often in order. But dragging yourself from the TV Christmas specials and ubiquitous Quality Street can seem too much of a chore. Gifting the Charcuterie & Cheese Hamper takes all of the work out of preparing an exceptional supper.
This mouthwatering spread of Black Pepper & Wild Garlic Salami from the Somerset Charcuterie Co., an award-winning trio of cheese from The Bath Soft Cheese Co., sourdough crackers, sticky figgy chutney and rosemary & garlic olives, is everything you could possibly hope for at Christmas, on Boxing Day, and beyond. As a gift for the host, a hamper for a foodie friend, or simply a forward-thinking gift to yourself, the Charcuterie and Cheese Hamper is a sure-fire winner.
We can think of few better Christmas hampers for foodies than The Luxury Hamper. A lavish collection of the finest food and drink, this celebration of British produce is overflowing with everything they (or you!) could need to get through the festive season.
From Flint Vineyard Charmat Rosé 2019 to Pinney’s of Orford’s Smoked Salmon Paté, Fen Farm Dairy’s Baby Baron Bigod to Suffolk Salami with fennel, this hamper is the ultimate gift for a food-loving friend or relation. Or take all the effort out of party planning and avoid the pre-Christmas shops by ordering The Luxury Hamper from Barbury Hill. With a divine range of smoked fish delicacies, cured meats, cheeses, condiments, crackers and even sweet treats, it has all you could need for a Christmas, or New Year’s Eve party.

This hamper is bursting with award-winners, from Pinney’s of Orford’s smoked salmon to Fen Farm Dairy’s Baron Bigod and a bottle of Flint Vineyard Bacchus. For foodies, this Christmas hamper would be the ultimate treat - with a select range of some of the finest food and drink gifts from Barbury Hill’s favourite independent producers.
There can be few foodies who haven’t hankered after a wheel of Fen Farm Dairy’s Baron Bigod, and with The Ultimate Weekend Hamper they can sample it alongside a glass of crisp Bacchus with its complex layers of lime, gooseberry, elderflower and cut herbs. The smoked mackerel, trout fillets and hot smoked salmon of Pinney’s of Orford’s smoked fish paté bring rich flavours when spread on a sourdough crispbread from Peters Yard, perhaps joined by a sweet pickled herring fillet.
Will you give a Christmas hamper to a foodie friend? Or keep it for yourself?
For a food-loving host or culinary obsessed friend, little can compare to these Christmas hampers for foodies. Unwrapping one of Barbury Hill’s range of food and drink hampers around the tree is sure to draw envious glances this Christmas and joyous hugs from the recipient. The only downside? You might be tempted to keep them for yourself. We’ll certainly be putting one on our Father Christmas list this year, and keeping our fingers crossed that we’ve been good!
