Say no more to scotch biscuits and crackers, this year our Christmas hampers are getting bigger, better and merrier as we support Brisbane's local producers and creators. Expect to gift gourmet cuisines, plentiful cheeses and oh-so-drinkable wines to your family and friends and hopefully receive one of Brisbane's best Christmas hampers in return (if their thinking is on the same delicious page).
If your giftee is all about cheese boards and wine nights they will be befuddled by the City Winery Christmas Hamper. All packed up in a box and tied with ribbon will come homemade lavosh, pickles and relish, marinated olives and hazelnut chocolate. The gift also comes with two bottles of Gerler wine, which you can select from a list of sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, rosé, pinot noir, shiraz and more, depending on their preferred drop.
Food Connect is providing the goods this year with local pantry hampers priced from $60 to $90 and stuffed with the likes of jams, tamari almonds, chocolate almond butter, pure Australian honey and rum balls. Because who doesn’t love a good festive and alcohol fueled rum ball? Not anyone we know. Featuring food that’s locally sourced and/or made on the premises of the Food Connect Shed commercial kitchen their festive hampers are sure to impress any receiver.
Whether you’re after sweet or savoury eats, Jocelyn’s Provisions has catered for everyone in Brisbane with their Christmas hampers this year. Ranging from $97 to $165 in price, you can order their Sweet Sampler filled with chocolates and cookies, the Crowd Pleaser stacked with rocky road and parmesan rounds or the cheese hamper for your dairy loving pals—see what we mean when we say there’s one for everyone? Jocelyn’s has well and truly thought this one out.
Cheese, cheese and more cheese—yes please. If your family member or friend puts out a cheeseboard every weekend then this one is a no brainer. Priced at $70 from Say Cheese, the cheese hamper is stuffed with truffle brie, camembert, blue and goats cheese, all from Australian cheese producers. Here's hoping you get invited over to help eat it all.
