Hampers = the best way to cover the whole family with one gift. Fact.
The Gladwin Brothers are three siblings who know the recipe for a banging restaurant. That's why they have four kickin' about in London's coolest neighbourhoods. Now they're bringing the local and wild vibes of each of them to your crib this Christmas, with a cracking Luxury Essentials Box... and never before have epically indulgent and expertly made dishes been more essential than in 2020, amirite? Pimp your Christmas in fine style with The Gladwin's famous Beef Welly & even a whole turkey, gammon and Christmas pork sausages. No more last-minute supermarket rush - instead kick back with a glass of Nutty Brut Sparkling Wine & wait for Santa. We like how they do things in the Gladwin household.
Their bottled cocktails were a very welcome lockdown discovery, now Tom Savano is here to make your Christmas a boozy affair with plenty of delicious stomach -liners to see you through to New Year. They've joined forces with the finest small artisanal bakehouses, brewers and chocolate makers in the UK to craft a series of mega cocktail and foodie bundles. They even have a hamper curated for doggos so your pooch can join the festive fun. Woof! Even better: all their profits are going to charity, so if you wanna contribute to a serving of philanthropy, these hampers will get you on the nice list.
Hampers start from £130 and can be reserved here.
This is the ULTIMATE gift for that buddy who treats their local like a second home. The Signature Brew's Pub in a Box brings all the goods to your home to recreate that "night at the local" feeling (though you will have to supply your own sticky carpet and grumpy regular sat in the corner), from glassware to beer mats, pub snacks to an epic Spotify playlist - and of course a kick-ass collection of beers to work your way through. And the best bit? No closing time, baby!
Signature Brew's Pub in a Box can be ordered here for £28
