The Perfect Christmas Hamper With John Lewis

Just the other week we were set an exciting challenge by John Lewis! We were kindly sent a £50 gift card so that Jayden could pick some Christmas presents for a chosen relative from the John Lewis store. As little man has been full of cold this week, I thought he could choose some goodies via the online store.

He decided that he was going to buy some surprise gifts for his Daddy. After failing to convince me that his Daddy would love a Cozmo robot and some Hotwheels cars, he got searching for more suitable gifts.


John Lewis Gift Ideas


Emma Bridgewater Polka Dot Mug £19.99

The first thing that caught his eye was this lovely Daddy mug by Emma Bridgewater. I thought this was a really nice choice of his and I know my husband will love it.

Whittard Luxury Hot Chocolate Bauble £6

How funky is this? A beautifully decorated tin bauble containing some luxury hot chocolate. A perfect winter warmer to drink in front of the TV. I think these would be brilliant for Christmas Eve boxes too.

Staffordshire Brewery Traditional Crafted Ciders £13

Jayden knows his Daddy all too well! He did make me smile when he nodded profusely at the screen when these appeared. Although not a regular cider drinker, Craig does enjoy a tipple now and again. He will really enjoy this selection of three 500ml bottles of traditional ciders.

Montezuma’s British Pudding Chocolate Bar Library £12

Who doesn’t love chocolate? Jayden loved that these chocolate bars taste like puddings.

Chocolate gift set

The flavours are –

Equador dark chocolate with lemon and meringue

Venezuelan milk chocolate with raspberry and blueberry

Milk chocolate Apple Crumble

Milk chocolate with toffee and hazelnut nibs

Dark chocolate with strawberry and meringue

I think Craig will have to hide these away from the rest of us!


I think Jayden did a fab job.  Now we just have to send it off to Santa so his elves can wrap it all! I know Craig will be over the moon with his hamper.

There are lots of lovely gifts for all of the family, available both instore and online. Make somebody smile this Christmas with John Lewis.

    Well done Jayden. He really did do a fab job!

    Didn’t he do a great job?! I love the bauble especially, the little treat for chocolate just made it that bit more appealing to me!!!! There really is some fun to be had making a hamper. I think I might have to let my little guys do something similar for their daddy!
