One of the joys of Christmas is all the dreaming we do. I have always been obsessed with the dream of a FORTNUM & MASONS CHRISTMAS HAMPER.
What about this one at £1,000. There are cheaper ones of course for dreamers who are loosers.
What matters most at Christmas – at least as far as we’re concerned – is the feast. As the happy (and hopefully hungry) recipient of this fittingly named hamper, your festive indulging is about to begin, with glorious sweet treats, savoury delights and tipsy tipples. With so much waiting for you to discover, let the feasting begin!
Please note due to current demand hamper components may be subject to substitution.
Made by famed winemaker Louis Roederer, our Vintage Champagne’s crisp, toasty notes make it a perfect Christmas morning tipple – especially paired with our Scottish Smoked Salmon.
Alternatively, our Strawberry & Champagne Preserve, Sir Nigel’s Vintage Orange Marmalade Amphora and Burlington Breakfast Marmalade are the perfect accompaniments to hot-buttered toast. The latter is even excellent with our Whole Christmas Ham inside, which calls not only for a drop of the rich Pomerol but also our trio of condiments – Piccadilly Piccalilli, Cranberry Sauce and Hot English Mustard – within.
For your after-feast dessert, there is our King George Christmas Pudding, a masterpiece with our Christmas Cognac Butter. Those with a taste for sweet treats and confectionery aren’t forgotten either with our Pruneaux d’Agen Tin, Chocolate Covered Figs, Marc De Champagne Truffles, Handmade English Dark Chocolate Selection and Ultimate Milk Hot Chocolate, as well as many exciting biscuits including our festive Merrilossus and Splendid Christmas Biscuit Selection – perfect for dipping into our Christmas Spiced Black Tea.
And all that is before we reach the cheeseboard with our Waxed Cheddar Truckle, Traditional Stilton Jar and Triple Cream Cheese alongside our Truffle Nuts, Pickled Sprouts, Biscuits for Cheese Selection Tin, Georgian Crackers and Fig & Fennel Chutney – delicious with a glass of Vintage Port or Saint-Romain.
Finally, make the most of all your gatherings with Fortnum’s Picnic Cool Bag, a perfect size for carrying many a treat. And if you’re in need of a little inspiration throughout the festive period, delve into the joyful recipes of our irresistible Christmas cookbook, Fortnum’s Christmas and Other Winter Feasts. It’s guaranteed to make your winter the most delicious of seasons.
Did you know? The price of a Fortnum’s hamper is always less than the cost of buying its contents and basket individually.

Be warned there is also one for £2,500 too.
…And no sadly we can’t afford one of those either. But nothing stops us dreaming.
