Homemade Gift Hampers – What to Put In Them?

December 21st, 2021

One of the best ways to make a present special is to make it yourself. 

While there are several unique gift ideas, especially when you consider personalised gift hampers, nothing beats one that has chocolate. If you’re looking to treat a loved one with something indulgent, homemade chocolate gift hampers are the way to go!

A ready-made gift hamper may be unique, but something that you put together will always be more memorable. Whether it is for Christmas, New Year’s, or any other celebration, they’re always the perfect gift idea.

With this in mind, if you’re looking for ideas and suggestions for your homemade gift hampers, we’ve got you covered.

The experts at Melt have put together a list of different products and elements you could include in your bespoke hampers to make them more personal and incredible.

Let’s take a look!

1. Delectable Sweet Treats

Sweets are unofficially one of the main components of every homemade gift hamper. From luxurious treats to simpler ones, every gift hamper contains some sort of sweet delicacy that people of all ages can enjoy.

Based on what the recipient would like, you could add a variety of sweet treats to the hamper. From baked goods such as brownies, mud pies, and tarts to chocolate caramels, sea salt caramels, or milk honeycombs, there are many incredible treats you can add to your homemade chocolate hampers.

For something more unique, our milk and dark sea salt discs, orangettes, and orange slices dipped in chocolate are great alternatives that will enhance this hamper.

2. A Box Of Delicious Chocolate Bars

Certain gift hamper products are classics that cannot be replaced. Chocolate bars are one such element that is a popular favourite amongst all. However, you need not opt for traditional bars when you can find many incredible choices at Melt.

From chocolate and nuts combinations like hazelnut dark bar, almondpistachio and milk bar to more unique flavours like mint, gianduja, sea salt caramel and chilli, there are many amazing flavours to choose from.

You could also consider adding any of our library boxes including nuts and salt and fruit and nuts boxes to make the hamper more decadent.

3. Sugar-Free And Vegan Chocolates

For those who prefer plant-based or sugar-free chocolates, there are many delicious alternatives that provide the same, if not better, quality and taste as traditional chocolates.

Chocolate discs, coffee dark bar, vegan milk chocolate are some of the many options you could consider from our vegan chocolate collection. For sugar-free options from minibars to milk chocolate bars, there are many amazing flavours that you can add to your homemade chocolate gift hamper.

4. Chocolate Making Experiences
