The Hubs was very happy to hear that this was a hamper designed for a gentleman. I pointed out that a gentleman would have lifted said hamper out of my car boot and carried it into the house for me so he was therefore disqualified from enjoying it. After a few minutes of pleading, I relented and opened the box to reveal a rustic Daylesford wooden crate containing shortbread, caramelised nuts, chocolate-dipped orange slices, savoury biscuits, chutney and a pair of lambskin gloves which The Hubs immediately laid claim to. There were also party essentials: a bottle each of French red and white wine, medium dry cider and a very pretty gold heart tree decoration which immediately graced my tree.
I'm really looking forward to sitting down on Christmas Eve with some of Pat Whelan's spiced beef and Cooleeney cheese accompanied by the Rosemary & Sea Salt biscuits and Chutney while my ham is simmering in the cider ready for a feast on Christmas Day. Nanna Williams would definitely have approved!
The Daylesford Gentleman's Hamper from Harrods' range of luxury gift hampers was supplied to me for review purposes and costs £150
