In partnership with Harvey Nichols

The big day is almost here. The Christmas trees are going up, the tinsel is glistening under candlelight and you’ve already eaten your own body weight in mince pies. Now it’s time to sort out the presents… the most difficult part. But what do you get someone who has everything?

A big box of assorted luxuries. That’s what. From coconut-dusted white chocolate truffles to blood orange and clove negronis, you can find simply everything in the Harvey Nichols foodie hampers. Fancy shaking up cocktails, testing new chocolates or indulging in a hot cuppa? Then look no further, we’ve found just what you’re looking for.

1. Festive Fancies Hat Box

The problem with boxes that are too big, is that you have to share. If you pick a box that is just the right size, then you can keep all the treats inside just for you. What’s more, this box comes in the guise of a hat box, so people are even less likely to want to know what’s inside.

Open it up for some white tea bags the colour of snow; sparkling Premier Cru Brut Champagne; a mini Christmas cake made to a family recipe in Shropshire; and one of the most addictive festive snacks: salted caramel pecans. Just don’t tell anybody about it.

2. ‘Tis The Season Hat Box

The amazing thing about Christmas is that you can ask for anything in the world and you can get it. Snowballs made of chocolate? Sure. Teabags filled with Christmas? Why not. Everything in this hamper is full of all things that are jolly and festive.

Enjoy a cup of Harvey Nichols limited-edition spiced tea, coconut-dusted white chocolate truffles oozing with caramel, buttery shortbread from Edinburgh and brilliant nutty brittle. Yum.

3. Santa Cutie Gift Box

There are many lessons that you can learn from Father Christmas at this time of year – be cheerful, be kind and… make sure that there is an aperitif and a snack waiting for you by the chimney.

Inside this hamper, you’ll find a sloe gin and an elderflower and pomegranate tonic water waiting to be drunk. You can then follow this up with the finest Dutch and Swiss cheese, addictive shortbread made to an old family recipe in Edinburgh, a mini Christmas pud, mini butter shortbread biscuits, olives, and smoky nuts. Do Christmas like Santa: eat, drink and be merry.

4. Good Tidings Gift Box

Good tidings we bring, to you and your kin… and an impressive hamper from Harvey Nichols. This hamper is certainly worthy for a king or a messiah. It’s packed with fancy festive flourishes like shiny gold almond dragées and a half bottle of Premier Cru Champagne.

There’s also a classic Christmas pud, handmade shortbread, cheery cherry jam and Christmas teabags. That’s a whole lot more interesting than frankincense and myrrh.
