Glorious Gifts & Heavenly Hampers

Written by , Posted in News



Why do people send our hampers as gifts? For fun, we recently asked a few of our customers why they chose a Forman & Field hamper. The overwhelming top answer was simply because they wanted to say thank you to someone who had really helped them throughout the year for a number of reasons, and our hampers are perfect for doing just that. Each hamper is made fresh to order, and is brimming with fine artisan food that everyone will love.

Other reasons for sending a hamper included: grateful students thanking their teacher, a treat for new parents, a hostess gift, and as an apology for something. We’re not sure what exactly the blunder was, but our hamper did the trick apparently!


Christmas Essentials Hamper

At Christmas time, a hamper can make all the difference, and for our customers we only want the best. The Christmas Essentials Hamper is jam-packed with all the goodies someone could ever want on the day. It includes: Grade One Smoked Salmon, Marmalade Glazed Alderton Ham, a Family sized Hand-Mixed Christmas Pudding, Cropwell Bishop Stilton, Peter Yard Mini Crispbreads, Brandy Butter, Cranberry & Vintage Port Sauce and Artisan du Chocolat Truffles. All the best things in life presented in a traditional wicker basket.

H. Forman & Son Smoked Salmon & Fizz

A gorgeous gift that’s packaged in a stylish black gift box, Smoked Salmon & Fizz is the perfect combination of 2 high quality products; Grade One London Cure Smoked Salmon, and Vintage Reserve Chapel Down Brut. Charming and elegant, it’ll bring a touch of sparkle to someone’s Christmas. A gift to remember.


Side of Grade One London Cure Smoked Salmon

If you want to send a gift this Christmas but a hamper isn’t the way you want to go, we have plenty of other products that are just as perfect. One of our most popular (if not the most) gift at this time of year is a side of Grade One London Cure Smoked Salmon. A luxury treat that someone may not buy for themselves, its still a definitely a treat that people can savour. It comes pre-sliced, so all the recipient has to do is serve and eat. What could be easier?!


Meg Rivers Classic Christmas Cakes

Lets be really honest for a moment; who doesn’t love cake?… Exactly! If you want to send something a bit sweeter, Meg Rivers Classic Iced Christmas Cakes are sensational. Presented in in stylish tins that are perfect to keep, the cakes are packed with fruit and nuts, laced with a generous helping of brandy, and have been matured for at least 3 months. Available in 2 larger sizes, or individual sizes.
