Hamper Gifts For Father's Day
25 May 2022
Father’s Day is next month (19th June), and the pressure is on for shoppers to find the perfect gift for the father figures in their lives. There's no denying that dads are notoriously difficult to buy for, which is why food baskets and ready-made gift hampers fly off the shelves in the run up to Father's Day.
As well as being your hamper supplier, we are also here to offer plenty of inspiration with great Father's Day hamper ideas for your customers. We asked three dads from our team what they'd like to receive in a hamper this Father's Day.
Will is the Managing Director at Gadsby and the sixth generation to continue the family business.
When the work laptop is switched off I relax by playing cricket or reading a book. I'm hoping my son might include a cricket autobiography (however, he's only three so I expect he might choose one with picture flaps or Peppa Pig!). Packed inside one of our wooden crates together with a nice bottle of wine and that would make for a great gift. Plus I could re-purpose the crate in the garden shed (ever practical!). Alternatively, with a notoriously sweet tooth, it's fair to say our 10-inch hamper or new 10-inch MocBox filled with retro sweets would go down a treat... but then I might have to share!

As a cheese nerd, I would appreciate a food basket containing the three c's; cheese, chutney, and crackers! I always envy the lucky recipients who receive one of our large wicker baskets full of delicious treats. The 14 or 16-inch wholesale wicker baskets we offer would be a great size, as they also fit a couple of bottles of wine (hint, hint!). Or perhaps one of our cardboard gift trays wrapped with cellophane, after all with no lid on the trays the sky's the limit as to how much cheese you could fit in... (now that's just greedy!).
Matt is our Sales Manager. What he doesn't know about our bulk buy wicker baskets and gift packaging isn't worth knowing.
Having three small children at home I can be partial to a glass of something in the evening once they are all tucked up in bed. As I enjoy sampling craft beers I'd opt for 4 bottles of small-batch Somerset craft beer packed inside one of our wooden caddies. We could then use the wooden caddy in the kitchen after, or on picnics with the family. Either that or one of our wine bottle boxes with a really special bottle of wine to be enjoyed on a summer's evening with friends.
