When we think of gifting our father, we tend to run for gift baskets. Let’s not lie; they are an excellent quick go-to option, not forgetting, you are able to personalise it with several items easily. When you personalise the gift basket, you ensure each item will be consumed; this is how you can make your basket unique. Thus, not all gift baskets are created the same way as the market has been filled with several hampers.
So below, we have tried to make your search much more manageable by compiling a list of gift basket ideas that your father will love.
- How about some cheese and wine?
The best accompaniment to a chilled glass of wine is some cheese; this is something we can both agree on. This cheese and wine hamper is a sophisticated gift and one that a wine lover will get to treasure. It has been accompanied with Two churches of a 750ml Shiraz, the famous TAR 10 sticky fig cheese that is about 120g. Some crackers loaded with sesame seeds, crispy bread and 100g of tasty wasabi peanuts have been included. You can’t just gift cheese and wine a little more creativity will need to get into the gift, and this hamper has taken care of that.
You also have the option of throwing in some vine dried muscatels that comes in 100g, balsamic relish and a gift card for you to write your warm wishes. If your father enjoys his glass of wine with some cheese, then this is a hamper to think of.
- Chocolate and wine hamper
If your father is not a fan of cheese, then you could change it up with some chocolate. A small sweet gesture goes a long way for the sweet tooth. The hamper includes Fudge chocolate of about 160g by Rich chocolate and walnut, and the traditional chocolate caramel by Charlies in a 50g packet, and some dark chocolate by Zokoko. Enough chocolate to keep his sweet tooth satisfied.
To top it all, you can pick out your father’s favourite wine to complement the whole packaging; this is where personalisation gets to the next level. Not forgetting a gift card with your warm message will wrap it all perfectly. A gift hamper idea we feel confident your father will love.
- Some wine with nibbles
He might not have a sweet tooth or love cheese either, but not to worry, there is still a gift option for him. Get him a good bottle of wine like ‘The Footbolt’ Shiraz by McLaren, subtle wine that will keep his taste buds tingling. It can be accompanied by antipasto olives dipping bowl, the famous Rolad Fig and Walnut Log in a 150g packaging, and some handmade peppery cheddars. But you are not limited to this nibbles as there are several items to choose from to ensure you personalise the gift to his liking.
Gift hampers are an easy go-to option and a memorable gift to give as you have the freedom to personalise it to your father’s preference. And with the current pandemic that we are facing should not be an excuse for not gifting your father something memorable.
