Christmas Hampers bring heightened elegance to the Holiday season. Every package is full of abundance and tied up with kindness. Christmas isn’t quite complete without this essential tradition. Nothing beats the delight of receiving a beautiful hamper made just for you with your favourite goodies inside. Getting one from your favourite person, or a loved one living in another state is the cherry on top for many people.
As we look forward to the joy of next Christmas, let’s take a moment to learn more about this wonderful Australian Christmas tradition.
The Meaning Behind Christmas Gift Hampers
Tracing its roots back to 11th-century France, the origin of the beloved Christmas Gift hamper is firmly rooted in empathy and caring for the community. Hampers were a way to share essential food and drink with those less fortunate than yourself. Later, as the habit grew, the tradition did not stay confined to charity. Farmers would pack their best meats and produce in baskets to send to their relatives and friends living far away. Much later, in Victorian England, the luxury hamper was born. Aristocratic families and others of the upper classes began carrying hampers full of rare cheeses, fine wines, and special meat cuts in elaborately decorated baskets on Christmas family visits.
Simply put, it was a way to show the host family that you put extra thought into the time spent together in their home. A Christmas Hamper is a lovely token of gratitude.
