H Is For Hampers

And you know we have them - in abundance.

What I love about gift hampers is that you can give them as a gift for any occasion.

I love you - here's a hamper.  Happy anniversary - here's a hamper.  Merry Christmas - here's a hamper.  Get well soon - here's a hamper.  Haven't seen you for ages - here's a hamper.  New baby - here's a hamper.

There doesn't seem to be an occasion where a hamper is not suitable.  Breaking up with your boyfriend - here's a hamper.  Bon voyage - here's a hamper.  Happy birthday - here's a hamper.  You broke your knee - here's a hamper.  See, what I mean?

We have stocked up on Traditional Gift Hampers (TGH for short) for the festive season and if it is your intention to get them to your recipient in plenty of time, we recommend you order them by mid December so you don't miss the boat.

And gift hampers don't have to break the bank - here are 5 hampers all less than $100 including postage.  Now that would put a smile on anyone's face.

Christmas Tea & Bikkies - $79

Tea, biscuits, honeycorn, bon bons, lollies, toffees and nougat bars.  A mix to suit all tastes.

This is a great festive purchase and includes plum pudding, shortbread, beernuts, wafers and cashews.

Happy Holly Hamper - $80

Shortbread, gingerbread, cookies, jam and brandy glaze will put anyone in the Christmas spirit.

Festive Treats Gift Hamper - $90

Brandy glaze, rosemary lavash, plum pudding, crispbread and orange chocolate - all things to tempt and tantalize.

Christmas Bubbles Gift Hamper - $50

It's not Christmas without some bubbles in sight; this gift includes bubbles, chocolate and a plum pudding

There truly is a gift hamper for every occasion.  So starting from $50 - you can purchase a gorgeous gift hamper without breaking the bank.  Surprise someone today - they will thank you for it.

Gluten-free fudge, coconut ice and mug. I have to tell you Jacqui, you've done it again. The mug is an elegant shape with beautiful writing on it. The fudge is smoooooooth and oh so tasty.

Woohooo, ooh it's on my desk...thanks - made my day.

E Is For Executive

Rainbow Designs might not be the store that comes to mind when you are thinking executive gifts, but don't let the name fool you.  We love to give the executive treatment and receive it too on the odd occasion.  I mean, who doesn't?

The best place to start when viewing our executive gifts would be under what we love to refer to as TGH (traditional gift hampers).  And there is quite a mix of them to view.

Our Executive Gift Hamper (pictured above) is a mix of style and decadence which our executive types love to receive.  The gift includes your choice of Pinot Noir or Sauvignon Blanc, hot 'n spicy peanuts, organic Anzacs, orange chocolate, chocolate coated fruit, rosemary lavvash, traditional plum pudding and chili and lime Soya Stixs.

We think that our Maggie Beer Gift Hamper would be great for those executives who love to wine and dine.  The gift, as the name suggests, features all Maggie Beer products, namely verjuice, extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, cabernet paste, quince paste, sparkling ruby Cabernet, kalamata olives and sauce.

Our Wine and Treats Gift Hamper is also extremely popular among the executive set, no surprise there!  It features wine of your choice, rosemary lavash, beetroot relish, a chocolate assortment, rum balls, quince paste and plums in port.  Definitely a handful of the finer things in life.

Or perhaps our Scotch On The Rocks would be more in keeping with their executive lifestyle?  This decadent gift features a 700ml bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Whiskey, milk chocolates, stainless steel ice bucket and stainless steel ice tongs.

What do you think?  Surprised?  Many are!  So if you are looking for some executive style gifts in amongst our staple gifts of lollies or chocolates, then you might just find what you are seeking here. Happy browsing!
