Whether it’s for a picnic in the New Forest with your friends or the perfect gift for someone special, Local Hampers are a fantastic way to support our local producers and to receive top quality food and drink, all in one basket.
From jams and chutneys to cheese and savoury bakes, to homemade cakes and confectionary. Even local wines, ales and local tea bags. There is a whole load of love and amazing produce that goes into local hampers! Most local hamper companies have a wide selection of hampers that you can choose from, so you can buy a hamper that suits you, or the person you are buying one for.
Picnic hampers can be a little different to the gift hampers from some local hamper companies, with picnic hampers that can include ready made sandwiches, scones and clotted cream, to hampers that include charcuterie meats, cheeses, chutneys and freshly baked bread.
The Forest Foodie, a fantastic local hamper company, even offers hampers such as Surf n Turf hampers, that includes freshly cooked lobster, fillet of beef, salad, bread and sparkling wine - making your forest picnic that little bit more special. They even have the ultimate BBQ hamper, that you can cook in your own back gardens, or at your local accommodation if you have a bbqing facility, this hamper includes locally sourced meats, halloumi, salads and dressings.
If you’re booking a break in the New Forest, some self-catering cottages, hotels, bed & breakfasts and holiday parks surprise guests with welcome hampers, full of locally produced essentials, including the likes of milk, bread, tea, coffee, eggs and sometimes even a homemade cake!
