Gift and hamper ideas for Christmas 2020

We’ve officially started counting the sleeps until Christmas.

This festive season might not be what we’re used to, but there’s few things that could change the feelings of joy and goodwill that come with this time of year. 2020 is an opportunity for us to get extra creative with our gift giving and — as the nights get chillier — our luxe gifts and hampers and personalised presents could be just the pick-me-up everyone needs.

From Christmas snack baskets and alcoholic gifts to personalised books and high-end hampers with all the bells and whistles, there’s something for everyone. No matter the recipient, our beautifully presented gifts make the festive season that little bit more special. 

Gifts and hampers for the whole family

Our hampers come in all shapes and sizes, so you can give a gift the whole family will enjoy. Although you may not be able to go to all the usual social gatherings, you can still make sure you have everything needed for the perfect evening in.

Upgrade story time with a personalised book embossed with your child’s name and finished with a special message on the opening page. Or delight football fans with a personalised newspaper book tracking the history of their favourite team.

Looking for something more edible? You can opt for a range of tasty treats, with everything from crisps, olives and salsa to marshmallows, wine and fruit presse. Or satisfy the cravings of self-confessed sugar addicts with the For The Love of Chocolate basket or the Gummy Delights Personalised Sweet Hamper. We also have a variety of vegan gift hampers for those who follow a plant-based diet.

Hampers with a touch of luxury

Christmas is a time when many of us like to splash out – and rightly so. Show you care with one of our luxury hampers designed to help you celebrate the festive season in style.

Our top-of-the-range options are ideal for treating family and friends, whether you’re looking for a hamper to spoil your favourite person or a couples gift for a perfect pair. Set the tone for a romantic night in with a Champagne and Chocolates Gift Set or select a high-quality spirit like Vintage Armagnac Brandy in a Silk Lined Box.

For those who like a glass or two in the evening, there’s no better present than a wine selection. Send a Twelve Bottles in Traditional Wicker Basket for a gift that can be enjoyed throughout the Christmas period. Or for an extra special celebration, go all out with The Noel Hamper – our most extravagant variety of treats. This indulgent gift includes everything from crackers and mince pies to fudge and Christmas pudding with cognac, as well as wines all packed into a traditional lidded wicker basket.

A gift with their name on it

Personalised gifts show you’ve gone the extra mile – especially when you can’t be there yourself. We have a huge selection at Red Letter Days, from books to letterbox gifts and even beard grooming kits. Keep things simple with a personalised Champagne Gift Box or cater to a friend’s favourite hobby with one of our more quirky presents, like the Wooden Fishing Gear Box.

If you find yourself investing in the same old toys and stocking fillers every year, go for something a little different with our variety of personalised children’s gifts. Make mealtimes a joy with a colourful crockery collection, or start a Christmas games tradition with a set of Peppa Pig Skittles.

But there’s no need for more grown-up family members to miss out on the fun. Personalised gifts like a Prosecco Bonbon Jar, Wooden Twinings Tea Chest and bath salts are sure to go down a treat with those who appreciate a quiet moment to themselves. And if you want to mark Christmas 2020 with a gift to sum up the year, why not give a Personalised Set of Two Face Masks and Case? It’s certainly a present they’re unlikely to have received before!

Give a voucher

Can’t decide what to plump for? You can’t go wrong with a Red Letter Days gift voucher. Give up to £500, which can be put towards any of our experiences. We have thousands of thrilling options, from helicopter rides and watersport activities to spa days, Michelin-star dining and even short breaks. By giving the gift of choice, they’ll be able to select whatever makes their heart happiest.

And the best bit: Red Letter Days vouchers are valid for 20 months, so even the most indecisive of recipients will have time to secure their dream experience. Plus, if the cost doesn’t exceed the value of the voucher, we’ll issue a credit note, which can be put towards a second gift in the future.

Shop thousands of gift hampers and experiences

It’s likely we won’t be venturing out to the shops quite as much this Christmas but, with Red Letter Days, you can secure the perfect present without leaving your sofa. With such a huge range of options to choose from, you’ll never be faced with awkward moments come Christmas Day.
