Christmas Hamper Ideas for Dad

Treat Dad to something more thoughtful than socks this Christmas with a luxury hamper from Cartwright & Butler. Bursting with delicious sweet and savoury treats, plus luxury takes on everyday essentials, we’ve got the perfect festive food gift for every dad, whatever his taste and whatever your budget.


Buying Christmas gifts for Dads can be challenging. Socks, smellies, his favourite tipple or novelty gifts linked to his favourite hobby are OK, but why not surprise him with something really special this Christmas? From savoury snacks paired with classic craft ales to delicious chocolate and champagne, our Christmas hampers for him (as well as other recipients) are bursting with all his favourite flavours, there’s bound to be something to make his day.

For the dads with a sweet tooth

Treat him to one of our decadent Christmas chocolate hampers, packed with some of our most popular sweet treats, all presented in a stylish wooden crate. The Bishopdale Hamper comes complete with our moreish sea salted caramel shortbread, creamy all-butter fudge, melt-in-the-mouth butter oat crumbles, festive cranberry crumble flapjacks, chewy stem ginger biscuits and wafer rounds smothered in smooth milk chocolate.

Of course, no biscuit break is complete without a good cuppa, so we’ve included a box of our refreshing English Breakfast Tea too. The Bishopdale also comes complete with super-fruity raspberry preserve, lightly sparking raspberry lemonade and a jar of tongue-tingling sour apple sweets, just in case his sweet tooth wasn’t satisfied.

For the dads who love a savoury treat

Give Dad everything he needs to build his perfect cheeseboard with one our Christmas food hampers, such as the Ripon Hamper -  a classic wicker basket packed with super crunchy tomato and olive bread thins, melt-in-the-mouth Gouda melts, plus a jar of our family recipe goes-with-everything Yorkshire chutney. There are some sweet treats too, like our more-chocolate-than-biscuit triple chocolate chunk biscuits, crumbly all-butter fudge, and a jar of fruity strawberry preserve.

Why not complete the gift with a Lytton Cheeseboard – a stylish sustainably sourced acacia wood cheeseboard with professional cheese knives built in. All he needs to add is his favourite cheeses and he’ll be the host with the most in no time at all.

It's Christmas - Treat your mum, too!

Want to get in Mum’s good books too? Why not suggest one of Christmas gifts for boyfriends and husbands that she could pick for him? Or take it one step further and splash out on a luxury hamper they can both enjoy?

Choose one of our signature wooden crate hampers like the Rosedale or the Swaledale for a food gift that keeps on giving all year round. With the perfect balance of sweet and savoury treats, plus luxurious everyday essential like tea, coffee, chutneys and preserves to enjoy over the festive season and beyond. Plus, all their goodies are packed into a cute reusable wooden crate they can use for storage or decoration, and lots of our products come in reusable tins and embossed glass ceramic-topped jars – perfect for storing their favourite ingredients or even keeping the garage tidy and organised.
