If you've run out of ideas for Christmas presents already, take a look at the best Christmas hampers. When your family extends into Kardashian levels of people, running out of Christmas gift ideas is easy to do. However, a great option is a festive hamper.

Like advent calendars, whether it's beauty advent calendars or tea advent calendars, you can choose one featuring anything these days. Whether you want a traditional hamper with cheese and biscuits, or tea and cookies, or want something a bit different, there's a hamper for everyone.

Our only advice when choosing a Christmas hamper is to find one you'd like and then hang around when your friend or family member opens it, and hope for some leftovers. Or, just treat yourself to one. Go on, it's your Christmas too.

How to make your own Christmas hamper?

Hampers are definitely one of the easiest DIY presents to make, and you can get really creative and personal. All you need is a wicker basket or a gift box to add your presents. Presents, ribbons and tissue paper can't go amiss to dress it up either.

Next is what to put in your hamper. Does your bestie love bath bombs? Create a little spa sanctuary with some goodies from their favourite brands. Has the recipient recently had a new baby, or adopted a puppy? You could even put together a selection of goodies for them and their new addition, as they adjust to their new life.

Whatever their penchant, all you need is a cute basket and some great ideas. It's a thoughtful gift that doesn't have to cost the earth, and it's one that's personalised to them. Happy hampering!
