Tea and cake hampers for every celebration

Want to create an afternoon tea moment for a special anniversary? Or celebrate a new job, a new home or someone’s retirement?

We’ve thought of it all, so you don’t have to!

Afternoon tea hamper ideas

An afternoon tea gift basket needs to include the staples: tea, cake and even a bottle of bubbly – and our range provides all three of these items, and so much more. 

For the loved one in your life who adores this dining speciality, our amazing Afternoon Tea Gift Selection is brimming with an array of mouth-watering goodies. Each divine treat is carefully packed into a sleek grey box, which you can reuse for your next dinner party. 

They can gorge on slices of sublime Cherry and Almond Loaf Cake, which is bursting with flavour from the juicy fruits included. Not to mention, there is a robust jar of our Strawberry Preserve to spread on top, or add to some scones you’ve bought in for the occasion. And Butter Oat Crumbles come into the mix, too, alongside creamy and delicious Butter Fudge. Although this blissful bundle doesn’t come with tea bags, it comes with a fine bottle of Baron de Beaupre Champagne for them to top up while gorging on these divine sweet treats.

Treat them to the finest afternoon tea baskets

To really and truly spoil your favourite person while mixing things up a little, our Swaledale Crate will knock them off their feet. This luxurious afternoon tea hamper is packed with 13 different sweet treats, including tantalising Lemon & Dark Chocolate Viennese Whirls in a tin. Not to mention, there’s a tin of traditional English Breakfast Tea bags and they’ll even receive a caddy filled with our After Dinner Blend Coffee

Or, if you want to steer away from tea and cake hampers, but keep the brew involved, try our Tea and Biscuits Gift Tray for the perfect ready-to-send hamper. Packed with tongue-tingling English Breakfast Tea, oh-so-crumbly Butter Oat Crumbles and chewy Stem Ginger Biscuits, this cute wicker basket hamper is a really popular choice.

Our fine collection of teas

As a British business (we're Yorkshire born and bred), we know what makes a good cuppa. So, we curate some of the finest, most flavour-packed teas, from classic English Breakfast Tea to fragrant Earl Grey, calming camomile and refreshing peppermint. And we pop them in our lavish afternoon tea hampers for all to enjoy!

Choose from whole leaf loose, classic and pyramid tea bags to make your own personal perfect brew. And with tea featuring in many of our ready-made hampers, you don't need to spend forever searching for the ideal present for the tea lover in your life. 

One of our greatest afternoon tea hamper ideas? Introducing our specialised blend of Afternoon Tea for your nearest and dearest to pair with their spongey, sugary cakes; our 100% Ceylon tea is much lighter in flavour than your typical English breakfast, and is known for sipping as the morning draws to a close and the afternoon begins!

Choose a personalised tea and cake hamper

If you can't find the exact afternoon tea hamper you're looking for, don’t fret. You can create your own bundle from scratch, packed with all the teatime items you know they'll adore (and gobble up). 

Just choose your container – whether that’s a premium (yet traditional) wicker basket, a retro tin picnic hamper or a stylish reusable wooden crate. Then, simply add your brew. We particularly love our Delicate Afternoon Blend Loose Leaf Tea, and once you’ve added this soothing beverage, pack in as many luxury cakes and cookies as you can! 

Cake gifts with a kick

As well as premium afternoon tea hampers, we offer cake gifts that are as special individually as they are packed into a box filled with other goodies. For the ultimate centrepiece, choose our Jewel Round Cake Tin - a wonderfully rich, lightly spiced fruit cake packed with fruit and topped with glistening glace cherries and skin-on almonds. It’s also presented in a beautiful cake tin, with a clear window on top - so they can see just what they're getting!

Perhaps chocolate is more their thing? Well then, send a super cute Luxury Chocolate Loaf Cake. This delightful present is a rich, velvety chocolate cake packed with chocolate chunks, drizzled with white and milk chocolate. Not to mention, it’s topped with melt-in-your-mouth caramel pieces, all poured into a lovely pastel tin. And it’s wrapped beautifully in a ribbon!
