Christmas Hamper Ideas
« on: August 28, 2015, 12:52:53 am »
Please dont kill me for starting this post :D

But the reason I am starting this, it is my daughter's first year at day care and I really want to plan stuff to give the carers. I have never made a hamper, just bought them for friends, but this year with the thermomix and support of you guys, I really would like to try it..

I just have 3 months as I will be away on holidays from Nov end, so planning to give the hampers before I leave..

Thinking of putting the following in the hamper, but any advice from all of you will be great!!!

- Strawberry conserve in a small jar
- Carrot cake
- Almond Jam cookies/Choc chip cookies
- Homemade chocolates
- Wine or something...

Good on you Thermilover!
2 things that I like to do and both really nice and easy.
Little Xmas Shortbreads(recipe community)
Small Gingerbread men. I put them in cellophane bags (most $2 shops) both are easy, and keep well.
Someone else put out the idea last year to present hampers nicely, the jars, packets etc can be sitting on a cake board then wrapped in cellophane. Hope this helps.

Thermilover, here's a bit of reading for you.  Lots of ideas and pictures of what we've done since 2009.

Plenty of ideas on that thread.  It's great fun planning what you are going to make and very satisfying to give away what you have made.  I've already started plotting this years list of gifts.
