Harrods luxury Christmas hamper (review)

With Christmas less than 2 weeks away, I am sure everyone's gone into either merry-making mode, or panic mode like me about the number of gifts I still need to pick up for friends and relatives. It does become a bit tricky when it comes to picking up gifts and the more options we have, the better isn't it? 

Harrods, the upmarket department store, has some really fancy Christmas Hampers this year and if you want to treat someone a bit more than the others, then you definitely have to check these hampers out. I have also been drooling over their luxury chocolate hampers and I still haven't decided if Ro is on the naughty list or nice list, but if he does qualify, then I am thinking of splurging on one of the hampers for him :) 
I was really happy to receive the Chelsea Hamper from their collection this year and it was everything I imagined it to be. The hamper came in a beautiful wicker box with a classy leather top and honestly I didn't feel like opening it. But as expected, curiosity got the better of me and I, as daintily, as possible took it apart. No opened it. Perfectly packed were a wide variety of food products, guaranteed to make you feel special.

The hamper included a box of Harrods Christmas Spice Loose Tea, a tin of Christmas Spice Ground Coffee, a jar of Brandy Butter (we have been spreading this on everything from biscuits to bread to just easting it on its own), a jar of Strawberry and Champagne Conserve, a gorgeous Christmas Pud, a pack of Brandy Butter Shortbread (what a fab idea to use up the brandy butter), a box of Chocolate Praline Selection and a cute lil red Harrods Christmas Bauble. That's right, everything you need for a cosy Christmas day with your family.
The products are all of excellent quantity and we have been thoroughly enjoying the coffee, shortbread and chocolates. The pudding, however, shall be opened only on Christmas day and I'm sure that's not going to disappoint us either.

There is still time to buy these hampers, so go on..put them on your Christmas list and get shopping.

With thanks to Harrods for the gift hamper.
