Are we right in saying that there is nothing more uninspiring than buying gifts for men? Whether he be a mate, a partner, a parent or a colleague, unless they have a hobby, socks, undies or vouchers seem to be the easiest and most unimaginative choice to meet the gifting requirements! But do you really wanna pay another visit to Bonds, or find out which club he can no longer do without on the golf course?
We get it. If you think ‘hamper’, you likely think ‘gifts for women’. And because of the antiquated image that often comes to mind when you think of hampers, we don’t blame you! Here is where you take a punt on Good Day People hampers for him, which are hampers, but reimagined. There will be nary a golf ball in sight, and yet we’re willing to bet the level of enthusiasm will be on par (pun intended) with a hole in one!
Since guys are generally so hobby-inclined, and we’re not here to dissect and rebuild the status quo, we’ll swim with the current and point out some of our hampers for him that support the non-sensical things that keep him preoccupied.
Gin his jam? Consider his gifts sorted…for life. For starters, Gin Jenny will put him directly in his sweet spot with (no prizes for guessing)…gin. Australian Distilling Co Sydney gin, to be exact. This hamper is only complete with a four pack of StrangeLove tonic, and Wondaree macadamias.
If that’s not quite hitting the right notes, Terrific Tony is a worthy contender for his ability to satisfy! The hero ingredient of this hamper for him is the White Possum Whisky or Gin Flight, accompanied with Little Greeves Chilli Oil, Tiger Buck Beef Jerky, Huff & Puff pork crackle, and Bahen & Co milk chocolate.
If the thing that gets him firing on all cylinders is not beverage-based, how about a culinary experience contained in a giant tube? If this sounds like nothing but a raging success, then Belissimo Belinda might be just the ticket (not to Italy, unfortunately). Despite her absence of plane tickets, she’s still guaranteed to impress him, with L’Abruzzese Squid Ink Spaghetti, Bippi Italian Chilli, Mount Zero olives, Messina Chocolate Hazelnut Spread, and a bottle of Babo Prosecco.
If Italian food is not quite the thing that gets him inspired in the kitchen, Gourmet Greg might be the way to go. One of our OG MVPs (that’s a lotta letters there), his contents are a little more ad hoc. Starting with a bottle of Minimum Wine (red or white of your choosing), Drunken Sailor Beetroot & Gin relish, the array would be rendered incomplete without Olsson’s X Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin Salt, Bramble & Hedge Chai, Wild Fig & Raspberry Nougat, and Maya Sunny Honey: macadamia crunch. Who said men can’t charcuterie board?!
Did caffeine go from a means of survival to an obnoxious obsession? You’ll never need to look elsewhere to find him a gift. As one of many caffeine-loaded hampers, give Coffee Chris a red-hot go. His contents include Mr Black Cold Drip Coffee Liqueur, two cans of Pablo & Rusty’s Nitro coffee, two packs of Pablo & Rusty’s Pourtables Drip Bag coffee, Pablo & Rusty’s hot chocolate powder, and Bahen & Co chocolate.
Whilst we offer an impressive (and ever-growing) array of hampers, we do understand our limitations! On the very unlikely chance that our collections did not satisfy your needs, here’s a guide to hampers deemed the best of 2023, curated by Hello! Magazine that will make great Christmas gifts. Go on…have a look! It’s not cheating, we promise.
