You can preorder Aldi’s Christmas hampers already

Where would you look for a luxury Christmas hamper? If your first thought was a high-end department store, you may want to reconsider your approach – especially in light of the launch of Aldi’s Christmas hamper offering for 2019.

The budget German supermarket has unveiled a selection of boxes and bundles for the season ahead, and from edible arrays to beauty products that rival expensive brands, there’s something to suit all tastes, and crucially, price points. Prepare to be seriously impressed…

The Pamper Hamper

Buy it for: Your best friend

The Pamper Hamper, £39.99, Aldi

For less than £40, you can invest in a selection of the store’s most raved-about beauty dupes, including the Lacura hot cloth cleanser, toner and moisturiser and a pomegranate scented Jo Malone-esque candle, plus a full-size bottle of prosecco and a box of truffles with liquid caramel centres.

The Christmas Favourites Hamper

Buy it for: Your colleague

The Christmas Favourites Hamper, £19.99, Aldi

Fudge, mint creams, florentines and nougat, plus a bottle of Australian shiraz: this is a package for anyone with a seriously sweet tooth. At £19.99 plus free standard delivery (as it comes in a gift box rather than a wicker hamper) it might even come in under budget for a Secret Santa draw or two.

The Festive Delights Hamper

Buy it for: The teetotaller

The Festive Delights Hamper, £24.99, Aldi

The traditional bottle of bubbly in most hampers is here replaced with gourmet coffee. You’ll also get florentines, sea salt crackers, an assortment of chocolates and fudge, a salted caramel bombe dessert, and a caramelised onion chutney that’ll make the perfect addition to any cheeseboard.

The Specially Selected Festive Treats Hamper

Buy it for: Your in-laws

The Specially Selected Festive Treats Hamper, £34.99, Aldi

For a slightly more luxe take on a smaller hamper, try this £35 selection, which includes most of the same treats as the alcohol-free Festive Delights option, but with the addition of acacia cut comb honey and a bottle of Malbec.

The Specially Selected Luxury Hamper

Buy it for: Your siblings

Three bottles of booze make for a good start – here you’ll find Prosecco, Sauvignon and a Shiraz – but wait til we reel off the food: chocolates, florentines, stollen bites, fruit cake, sourdough crackers, cheese savouries, clotted cream fudge, milk chocolate honeycomb, chutney, cranberry and orange source and single origin coffee. Divine.

The Christmas Feast Hamper

Buy it for: The biggest family you know

The Christmas Feast Hamper, £79.99, Aldi

Almost everything you need for Christmas is stacked up in this crate, from Christmas pudding to tea and coffee. Savoury fans will enjoy the cheese bites and crackers, while sugar fiends can tuck into spreads of cake, chocolate, pastries and puddings.

The Exquisite Hamper

Buy it for: Your host

The Exquisite Hamper, £99.99, Aldi

The most expensive of the lot, but what a haul you get inside: four bottles of wine and champagne, Christmas pudding, Christmas cake, mince pies and delicate, chocolate-dipped florentines. If you’re a guest at someone’s house this Christmas, this would be the ultimate thank-you gift.
