This Is What A £6,000 Christmas Hamper Looks Like

Those of us with a packed itinerary come festive season will likely be ruminating on the best way to feed a full house – Do you need more mince pies? Is a backup Christmas pudding needed for fussy eaters? How many bottles of wine is too many? (Note: there’s no such thing as too many.) Luckily for us, iconic UK department store Fortnum & Mason has unveiled its new line of Christmas hampers, which have been designed to cut away the hassle of hosting preparations and give you a luxurious Christmas you won’t soon forget.

There are 59 hampers to browse through this year, with prices starting at £19.99 and rocketing up into the thousands. Each one is packed with a bunch of festive treats like cheeses, meats, wines and the occasional Christmas pudding, but the crowning glory of the Fortnum & Mason selection is The Imperial Hamper.

Perhaps the hamper to end all hampers, The Imperial is made up of five individual hampers packed with teaware and accessories, decorations and delicious treats. The hamper, which is currently priced at £6,000, includes 75 items in total. Highlights include a whole Christmas ham, multiple bottles of wine, whiskey and champagne, luxury biscuits and even a tea set for two.
