Interflora-A Hamper is For Life Not Just For Christmas

LINCOLN, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2009) - Although the sending of hampers started as a Christmas tradition, they make perfect gifts all year round.

After Christmas, as the New Year celebrations draw close, who wouldn't be delighted to receive a food hamper and the opportunity to have a break from endless cooking.

And, there are so many other opportunities to show someone you are thinking about them.

If you send a hamper to a couple on their anniversary they won't need to take a step back from time spent together to cook dinner then wash up. If it's your anniversary why not present your loved one with a breakfast hamper for that oh-so-blissful lie in and breakfast in bed.

Flowers remain the traditional means of saying sorry, but a basket full of favourite goodies may be more suitable because it's something - when the making-up is complete - that you can enjoy together. Some may even say that it's more thoughtful than the same bunch of flowers you bought last time you had to make an apology.

Certain people may appreciate different things. A chocoholic may not appreciate a fresh fruit basket as much as a hamper filled with yummy treats. The health-conscious will appreciate receiving a hamper packed with organic fruit. And a 21st birthday would certainly warrant a hamper with personalised cakes and biscuits as something to be shared with friends and family before the big party.

So hampers don't need to be limited to Christmas time; there are plenty of occasions when a hamper would make the perfect gift. There are also plenty of people out there who would appreciate a hamper tailored to their tastes - a tea lover to whom you've just presented a hamper full of different types of tea as well as a new mug in which to enjoy them will love how well you know them.
