Christmas is a time for indulgence. When you think of Christmas what it is that springs to mind? Gifts, having the whole family round, watching festive classics on the TV or is it the readily available food, drink and treats at every turn? There’s no denying that certain food and drink reminds us of Christmas. Some food and drink are part of family traditions where as others we can all relate to.
Smoked ham with a dash of apple sauce is just as much a part of Christmas as mistletoe and wine and many take this for granted as a commonplace addition to the Christmas table. But did you know why we enjoy smoked ham at Christmas? The tradition has been suggested to have begun among the Germanic people and was once associated with harvest and fertility.
Everyone enjoys a tipple and a bottle of port goes down a treat around Christmas. Whether you enjoy your port alone or alongside your Christmas feast, you can rest assured that the port we include with our hampers is both good quality and delicious.
Stilton might be considered an acquired taste but for those with the taste for this strong distinctive flavour, it is described as heavenly and their Christmas feast wouldn’t be complete without this instantly recognisable cheese. If you are partial to a bit of Stilton then have a look at some of our available cheese hamper collections.
What Christmas feast table would be complete without the Signature Christmas Pudding centrepiece? This wonderful festive dessert is one of the most recognisable symbols of Christmas there is. Hamper.com offer an extensive range of Christmas hampers which include Christmas puddings and much more.
Mention mince pies as a sweet snack to anyone from outside of the UK and you might get a funny look but say that you don’t have mince pies at Christmas to your neighbour and they may well look at you aghast! After all, what will the kids leave for Father Christmas if it isn’t a glass of port and a mince pie?
