Scottish Hampers for a Foodie Christmas

By Emma @glasgowfoodie

Hampers of food always make me think of Christmas but if you're not diligent you may end up with a hamper of mass-produced jam, shortbread, tinned ham and a Christmas pudding that will hide in the cupboard until next Christmas! So if you're looking for something a bit more sophisticated for the food-savvy person in your life then Scottish Hampers might be the thing for you - inside are lots of top-quality items from all over Scotland including alcoholic drinks, cheeses and even smoked fish!

Pick one of their ready-made hampers such as:

Cheese Trio Hamper. With three delicious Scottish cheeses accompanied by two tasty chutneys and Mckenzies crackers.
