Believe in a thing called Love & send a Hamper Today!
The History of Hampers
The word Hamper is a primarily British term for a wicker basket,
usually large, used for the transport of food.
Hampers were traditionally used for picnics due to the open ventilation
and sturdiness offered by the wicker basket.
There is also a long tradition of social philanthropy and charity
related to hampers. Community groups or individuals would donate
hampers of food, clothing, toiletries and other household necessities
to deprived families as a gesture of good will and community spirit.
Up until the mid 20th century, in the Western tradition, the hamper
was a basket that could be delivered by hand to the lucky receiving
family. Such hampers made ideal gifts, and the willow basket made for
a useful item around the house or farm.
Hampers today have become a very popular way of expressing seasonal good spirit at Christmas.
We believe in preserving this traditional sense of good will here at InterHamper,
which is why we have presented you with a wide choice of hampers perfect for showing
your love and good will for your family or friends.
