As far as luxury hampers go, this one takes the (rose and pistachio) biscuit. The Fortnum & Mason Christmas hampers collection is available now, and the most lavish option will set you back £6,000.
The ‘Imperial Hamper’ contains everything you’ll need to make it a very merry Christmas, no matter how many you’ve invited to join you for the festivities.
The drinks selection includes a choice of champagnes, red and white wines, Fouseca 40-year-old Tawny Port and more. There are teas and coffees for after dinner, as well as plenty of sweet and savoury treats.
Sweet treats include truffles, Florentines, griottes, Christmas puddings, fruitcake, macarons, shortbread, elvas plums, panettone and stolen. Oh, and biscuits, chocolates, nuts, honeys and preserves.
For the main event there’s a whole Christmas ham, smoked salmon, Glenarm beef, pies from the Fortnum & Mason butcher, jars of Fortnum’s stilton and potted rarebit, a tin of Beluga Caviar and all the condiments you can think of.
Of course, you wouldn’t fit all this in one Fortnum & Mason Christmas hamper, so your deliver will arrive in a suite of logo-embellished wicker hampers, perfect for storing leftover treats for day two of the celebrations.
Non-food items include signature perfume, a corkscrew, body lotion, champagne stopper, Christmas crackers, kitchen linens (including a chef’s hat), baubles and a canvas backpack picnic hamper.
Now, who’s going to buy one for us? Santa, we’ve been awfully good this year…
