Taste of Kildare ‘Foodie’ Gift Hampers

Who doesn’t love receiving a hamper? Not only is the sound of wicker basket or untying the ribbon of the gift box so enticing, but to discover a treasure trove of some of your favourite foods inside is something very special.

Did you know that hampers date back to the Victorian period, in the 1800s, when the tradition of gifting someone a custom hamper became the fashion? And even then, it was really only wealthy families who would make and exchange them – filled with the finest food and drink, a basket was made for each member of staff at Christmastime.  Today hampers are still one of the very best gifts to receive and here in Kildare, we are sharing with you some of the best hampers available online from our restaurants and retailers this season.
