Our Promises to You:

AUTHENTICITY

We love to offer you good quality food and wine selected from artisan and independent estates. By offering authentic products not readily available in the supermarkets, we have been engaged in promoting real understanding of food and drink for over 30 years and bringing this added value to you.

FRESHNESS

We are particularly proud of our wide range of gifts containing fresh produce such as artisan cheeses, and smoked fish and meats. With our innovative, international approach, we are constantly sourcing specialist new foods and quality wines from around the world.

SHARING

We believe that good food and wine bring us all together. We love the stories about it, the people who produce it, the places it comes from and we would love you, your family, friends and colleagues to join us in this sharing journey. We help you with a free greetings card to be sent together with your selected gift because we believe the message you send is as important as the gift itself.

TRUST

We believe that only the best will do - from vineyard and specialist food producer to your gift delivered on time. For Hay Hampers, customer care is paramount for loyalty before profit. We are proud to offer no surcharged next working day, UK mainland delivery. We have a friendly, helpful personal service from a family-run business. We are able to create custom made gifts, personalised wine labels and packaging to suit budget and customer’s specification.
