Santa Claus is readying the sleigh and training the reindeers for the huge journey to deliver presents across the world! Yes, that’s right, Christmas is just around the corner, and it’s time to start thinking about presents to get the jump on the silly season – so you can sit pretty knowing too well you’re on top it, on top of your game and well prepared.
Love it or hate Christmas is inevitable, like death and taxes, so you may as well embrace it. If you can’t embrace the jingle bells and mindless consumerism there are a number of inventions to distract you from the holiday season. One of my favorite inventions is wine. Wine helps on any occasion and it makes for a great gift. And what’s better than a bottle of wine? A hamper full of course.
Buy Yourself an Early Christmas Present
This may sound sad to some people, but I’m going to let the cat out of the bag. I order myself a wine hamper as treat to myself for making it through another year, still kicking and still breathing. Even though I know I ordered the hamper and I know it’s going to be delivered to my house, I’m still overwhelmed with joy when I get a knock on the door and as the beautifully wrapped hamper is passed to me. Hey, who’s the most important person in your life at Christmastime? Yup, it’s still yourself.
For the Staff
Your staff comprises one of the most valuable parts of your business. Happy staff members make for happy customers and the gift of a wine hamper is a sure way to show your staff that all their hard work throughout the year is appreciated. I find that it has more of an impact if you send it directly to their house rather than give it to them at work.
For the Host of Christmas
Wine hampers are a great gift for the person hosting the Christmas get together, whether it’s your parents, siblings or if you are having an orphan Christmas with your friends – it’s the gift that keeps on giving. Not only does it make for a great gift, but it also adds to the alcohol stock for Christmas Day and takes some of the burden of the host who is usually run off their feet basting turkeys, or glazing hams.
The beauty of wine hampers is that it takes the guesswork out of buying presents and the contents are usually diverse, so in one way or another, there is something for everyone. Now, let’s take a look at some of the gourmet baskets Melbourne available to make your life easier and someone else’s better.
This wine hamper embraces polarity and comes with a bottle of red and a bottle of white from one of Australia’s finest wine producers, McGuigan. It’s ideal to bust out the white in the afternoon as the sun goes down and then the red to drink with dinner.
Red Wine Gift Basket
The Red Wine Gift Basket, as the name suggests, contains a bottle of red wine from the good people of D’Arenberg and bunch of gourmet snacks and nibbles. This hamper is more catered to the sweet tooth and has boutique fudges and macarons that will melt in your mouth.
Tempus Two Duo
The Tempus Two Duo is another classic duo from the people at Tempus Two. It features a bottle Two Copper Series Sav Blanc 2016 and a bottle of their famous shiraz and some Lindt chocolate as the cherry on top. You can’t go wrong with some of the finest in wine and chocolate.
All the featured gift baskets mentioned are beautifully presented in a premium gift box, along with a card for you to write a heartfelt message to the recipient. Don’t forget that message!
The ordering process is as easy and takes about 5 minutes to complete. This is ideal for those who are time poor, or if you are like me, hate shopping.
Jesus didn’t turn water into cordial, did he? He turned the water into wine because he knew that the majority of people love it. If he did turn it to cordial imagine the uproar and division of the crowd as they fought over raspberry, fruit cup crush, and lime cooler.
Get the jump on the silly season and consider getting on the gift hamper giving train. It will brighten someone’s day and make your life easier.
