So we all know what gift baskets are – carefully arranged gifts for delivery filled with a few tastefully chosen items. But gourmet hampers? Well, let's just say the gourmet hamper is the bigger, better option when you're talking gift baskets.
More products, a diverse selection of tastes and inclusions, and simply a bigger impact on delivery – that's what to expect when you order a gourmet hamper. Here's our unique twist on what to expect and how to put together a gourmet hamper for a gift idea, sharing with family and friends, or for a work commitment experience.
By definition gourmet usually brings to mind an impression of quality, handmade, and taste-driven products – perhaps inspired by well-known chefs, or made to secret generations-old recipes.
For me, gourmet means a connection between the maker and the product – whether by having a hand in producing the finished good or in managing the product itself.
In the same vein, a gourmet hamper is the ideal gift decision as a combination gift reflecting regional authenticity. This is where local hampers and gift baskets can really make a meaningful impact as a delivered gift.
Overall, you will be impressed with the sheer size and range of tastes and flavors in a gourmet hamper. As distinct from a gift basket, which is usually a little smaller and may contain non-food items, a hamper is purely for the food lover.
