7 DIY luxury hamper ideas for her
Tailored perfectly to the recipient and packed full of their favourite things, there’s nothing more thoughtful than a personalised hamper. Not only can it fit a variety of budgets, but the presentation of a hamper is one that is sure to delight the lucky lady in your life.
Regardless of the occasion – be it Mother’s Day, birthday, Christmas or just a well-earned treat – there are many things you can put together to create the perfect gift basket. Start by picking up a straw or wicker basket, filling it with plain or opulent gold shredded tissue paper before packing it full with goodies.
Unsure where to get started? Here are some top luxury hamper ideas for her.
It’s almost impossible for anyone to turn their nose up at chocolates, especially if they’re crafted by speciality chocolatiers. Choose rich gourmet chocolate in their favourite flavours – with everything from a classic deep dark ganache to vegan salted caramel truffles for you to choose from.
A designer perfume is a guaranteed winner – who doesn’t like to smell good, after all? Make the star gift of the hamper a luxury perfume and you’re certain to make the recipient’s day. There are a number of gorgeous scents to choose from, whether they prefer something fruity, feminine or musky. Need some inspiration for your DIY luxury hamper? You really can’t go wrong with Paco Rabanne Lady Million thanks to its iconic scent, longevity and gorgeous packaging.
Silk sleep mask
Help them drift off to sleep in style with a silk sleep mask. They’re far from your regular old face masks and do more than help the wearer sleep; the silk is soothing on the sensitive skin around your eyes, helping to preserve and moisturise.
Their favourite Champagne or coffee
Who doesn’t love getting a bottle of bubbly as a gift? Perfect for celebrating any occasion, it’s a great drink to match that luxury theme. Feel free to swap this out for gin, prosecco or any other drink should they not be a Champagne fan – but keep it classy with a bottle that matches the vibe of your whole hamper. If they don’t drink alcohol, splurge on some high end ground coffee or tea for the same effect.
Essential oil rollers
A must for those who work in stressful environments – or simply need more help relaxing – essential oil rollers offer a number of benefits. Scents such as lavender are known to help you chill out and drift off to sleep, whereas peppermint can help give you an energizing boost. They’re a unique gift that can be personalised to the recipient’s needs. In fact, making your own mixes is actually incredibly easy and perfect for those who are on a budget.
Whether you opt for subtle dainty earrings or a statement necklace, jewellery makes for an extra special gift. Pop a jewellery box in the middle of your hamper and they’re sure to be delighted. Earrings and necklaces are a great choice as you can find gorgeous pieces to suit any budget and style. Go the extra mile with the personalisation factor by getting them a necklace of their initial or earrings featuring their birth stone.
Add to the hamper with the likes of cashmere socks, shortbread biscuits, pieces from their favourite makeup brands and hair accessories. You can choose affordable brands but adding these pieces will ensure there’s plenty for them to uncover and enjoy.
Whether you’re making the perfect birthday gift or celebrating any special occasion, any woman is sure to appreciate the thought put into a completely tailored hamper.
