Hay Hampers

Popular gift in lockdown? Hampers to keep spirits up


We, like many online retailers, are experiencing big shifts in demand and the way people are using our services due to lockdown stay at home measures and social distancing.

Keep their spirits up during the ongoing quarantine Corona Virus crisis - Send them a hamper gift!

We thought it might be useful for you to share some of these ideas and new ways our new and existing customers are using our business.

WFH Business meeting catering! We have provided individual hampers with tea, coffee and a variety of biscuits, for working from home, Microsoft team or Zoom meetings. This way all your attendees can share in the eating and drinking of the same treats and feel a little more united! Our corporate sales team can work out entirely bespoke contents and individual delivery for ten or more recipients, or you can simply order through our website, one of our many gift with multiple delivery arranged in the advanced checkout.  We have hamper ideas for breakfasts, lunch, elevenses, or afternoon pick me ups!

Lockdown birthdays. We know these can be a bit depressing and flat, so why not send your loved one a treat – we have a great range of birthday cakes; either fruit cakes iced with a Happy Birthdaay message or handmade sponge cakes wrapped in ribbon with a birthday candle for them to blow out. Or we have a wide range of bottles of wine or beer with special birthday messages.  We even have cheese truckles that tell them they are, like the cheese within, aged to perfection and not old, just extra mature! A little laugh goes a long way in these times!

Limit loneliness. Now is the time to pay extra attention to those who are living alone and in the vulnerable category. These long periods of isolation can be brightened with a socially distant policy observant delivery of all their favourite treats. It lets them know they are not forgotten and from the feedback we have had brightens their day to a far greater value than the price you pay. 

Say thank you to team members going the extra mile working in difficult conditions. Some businesses want to say an extra special thank you to those staff members putting in longer hours to cope with increased demand, or working in difficult conditions with restrictions making their work harder but showing huge resilience, loyalty and flexibility. To us, that is worth a thank you. Someone who feels appreciated always works harder than someone who doesn’t. Once again our dedicated team of corporate sales ladies will be happy to help with suggestions, discounts and delivery.
