How to put together a luxury hamper for less than £20

WHEN I’m stuck for inspiration, putting together a Christmas hamper is always a great fallback gift that still has the personal touch.

A luxury hamper from Fortnum & Mason will set you back £130, but you can create a DIY version for £10 to £20 simply by selecting much cheaper goodies.

Rather than buying a basket on its own, you’ll save by getting a kit that also includes filling, clear plastic wrap and a bow

BASKET CASE: Rather than buying a basket on its own, you’ll save by getting a kit that also includes filling, clear plastic wrap and a bow.

Wilko has these for £6 with a 45cm x 30cm silver basket.

The Works has a two-for-£10 deal on its hamper kits with similar-sized baskets, which cost £7 when sold separately. It also has mini-kits with small round baskets for £3.

BESPAAR: £4 when you buy two kits at The Works

PICK A THEME: It’ll feel more coherent if you choose a theme.

Byvoorbeeld, a film night hamper might include luxury popcorn, sweets, a mini bottle of fizz and movie quiz cards.

BEAUTY TREATS: Mix-and-match deals are perfect for filling up beauty hampers.
Boots has three-for-two on lots of items including body wash and lotion from The White Collection, Ted Baker Lipstick & Liner and a duo of No7 nail varnishes — each of which are under £10.

Look out for discounted beauty advent calendars at this time of year or buy several gift sets and split the contents between hampers.
