Christmas is a time for gathering together, and for many of us, sharing food plays a major part in the celebrations. Traditional Christmas delicacies such as mince pies and chutneys have lasting appeal, but people are becoming more discerning about where their food comes from in terms of carbon footprint, farming and manufacturing methods and supporting local businesses. This is where Boxlocal excels! Our hampers highlight the finest regional products, introducing a range of delicious sweet and savoury items alongside locally crafted gifts; with our Christmas boxes containing items chosen specifically with the Christmas season in mind.
Exploring new products and combinations is part of the joy of the Christmas season and purchasing a hamper packed full of flavoursome treats to make your mouth water is an effortless way to stock the cupboard with special products that will delight family and friends. The heartwarming glow that sweet treats from a local bakery brings is the perfect accompaniment when snuggling under a blanket watching your favourite Christmas films, while a fragrant tipple made with locally grown produce is ideal for sipping as you decorate the tree.
Local products are guaranteed to be fresher and there is something special about knowing the food you are eating has been grown and/or prepared in the surrounding area. Connection is synonymous with Christmas and connection between us, and our food is as important as any other bond.
Traditional Bristolian Fayre
Our mission has always been to provide a variety of the best in local artisan produce and celebrate the heritage of the region. No one can deny Somerset’s cider farms’ reputation for producing some of the world’s best ciders and the highly-revered cheeses from the area, which is why a Cider and Cheese hamper is the ultimate in traditional Bristolian fayre. It’s a great option for taking along to a Christmas house party and celebrating the rich contribution the local area has had on the UK food scene.
An Ideal Gift
Hampers packed with local products are perfect Christmas gifts that are sure to be well received – after all, Christmas is well-known for being a time to indulge in tasty treats! Food hampers are popular as gifts from clients or businesses as well as to friends and family and can be a fabulous luxury prize for festive fundraising raffles.
Local gluten-free and alcohol-free options make a box full of Christmas goodies great for recipients with specific dietary requirements and there is the option of building your own box – a wonderful way to give a thoughtful, tailor-made present. Don’t forget, all boxes can be personalised with a note sending festive greetings.
You can rest assured that every item in our Christmas hampers is bursting with flavour to get your taste-buds well and truly in the festive spirit – plus, you can revel in the fact you are supporting the local economy and making small-business owners from Bristol and beyond very happy this Christmas season!
