5 steps to creating the perfect hamper

Posted by The Canningvale Team on 12th Apr 2022

Are you searching for a creative gift that is perfectly tailored to your giftee?

Give the ultimate self-care gift pack with a hamper that boasts better sleep, better dreams and a better life with our top 5 ideas 💡

1. Make the basket part of the present

Start with a useful (and good-sized) basket that the giftee can reuse.

Our Carta Storage Baskets are the perfect first part of your hamper. They can be used to make storage less of a chore and bore by helping your giftee organise their home (even if you can’t help them organise their life)!

It’s also more eco-friendly than gift wrapping 🌱

2. Know what will make the giftee smile

This can be easy or utterly bewildering, as some people are easy and fun to shop for, while others have us pulling our hair out. That’s why we’ve created some categories, to help make this process easier for you:

The Beauty Queen: stylish, gorgeous, and loves to make a statement. They are totally alluring, and fall head over heels whenever they walk into their decadent home.

They need to get their beauty sleep, so look no further than our Beautysilks Collection.

The Artist: creative and bold. They create a worldly and sophisticated aesthetic in their home.

They’ll love our Cucina Harvest Kitchen Collection, the perfect backdrop for all their culinary art.

The Lover: romantic, sweet, and falls in love a little too easily.

They’ll fall in lust with our Lustro 100% Bamboo bedding that is silky-smooth and dreamy.


The Bohemien: enjoys being unconventional, so fancies clashing patterns and textures. They’re a little bit wild and adventurous, so are willing to try out a lifestyle in their home that is fun, free spirited and flavourful.

Our Tribu Collection is the perfect match for any free spirit.

The Hero: always the centre of attention in any room (it’s their story after all). They’re bold, so love a statement piece, but they also enjoy being surrounded by plenty of neutrals so that they can take all of the glory for themselves. They have a strong sense of justice, so are an eco-warrior at heart and ethical products are a strong feature of your home.

Nothing captures the eye quite the way a throw does, so check out our Alpini Throws in a range of different patterns and textures.

The Minimalist: soft and subtle, they love to keep things simple.

Our Vintage Softwash Bedding is classic, charming and gets softer with every wash.

3. Add a personalised touch

Have a crafternoon and handmake the card! Add some favourite flowers of theirs or some sprigs from your garden. This will make your gift even more special.

4. Add in something fancy they wouldn’t normally buy themselves  

Whether it’s their favourite bottle of wine, a facial, or 1000TC sheets, or a decadent candle, add something in the hamper that will spoil them like a royal.

5. Upcycle something to show you care

A handmade gift is art that’s full of heart, and will hold special significance to your giftee. Check out our upcycling blogs here and here for more ideas!
