Push the boat out and really treat your family and friends this Easter by sending one of the best Easter hampers for 2023. 

With Easter (Sunday 9th April 2023) just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about how to celebrate Easter and what to buy your loved ones this spring. Do you focus on the kids and opt for the usual Easter eggs for kids or Easter gifts for kids? Or is this year all about the adults - a chance for them to really indulge? If so, a hamper could be the ticket. 

"To find the best Easter hamper for you, look for luxe versions of products that you know you love - I particularly like Cartwright and Butler hampers because they contain delicious, distinctive items that I’d never find in my local shops," says Goodto's Consumer Editor, Heidi Scrimgeour

"Pay close attention to the packaging, too. Many hampers come in beautiful baskets that can be repurposed in your home or refilled and re-gifted, adding value for money. My bathroom essentials look very classy in a beautiful wicker basket that was once full of treats from hampers.com - I smile every time I see it!"

All of the hampers in this collection can be posted to the UK, some even have next-day delivery available for those last-minute gifts. We have included a selection to match a range of budgets too and most importantly the majority have been tried and tested by the Goodto team - so you know they've got to be good...

Food Editor Jessica Dady says: “The first thing that caught my attention was the vibrant packaging the Easter egg, mini eggs, etc. come in - a really lovely eye-catching design which I felt bad popping into the recycling bin as it was so nice. The Blonde Bombshell Easter Egg & Blonde Chocolate Truffles were just heavenly - a real melt-in-the-mouth treat. And the Shell Yeah Mini Speckled Chocolate Eggs were gone in one sitting. A great collection from Harvey Nichols this year.”

Food Editor Jessica Dady says: “Fortnum & Mason is a high-quality brand which you expect to pay good money for and this Easter hamper is the top end of our budget this year, however, it is well worth it, especially if you’re in the mood for seriously treating someone. Plus the F&M branded wicker hamper is a great basket to re-use and display in your kitchen - we’ve done exactly that packed with recipe books and cake tins that didn’t make the kitchen cupboard cut.”

You miss out on the luxury that is associated with a wicker hamper or keepsake gift box, however, the variety of chocolate and the ‘fun’ in this box is just spot on. Perfect for the whole family - we couldn’t even choose a favourite between us they were all on point - but the Dippy Egg Mini Mallow Whips were an Easter highlight for my sweet tooth.”

The two medium sized Easter eggs were delicious too and effectively decorated. Not forgetting the wicker hamper too which is reusable - as well as being sturdy yet stylish. A recommended hamper that would very well received.”

Food Editor Jessica Dady says: “This gift box takes Easter chocolate to the next level - the chocolate eggs are infused with salted caramel, the dark chocolate bar has flecks of Maldon sea salt and the Petite Praline Eggs are just too good to share. It’s a step away from the usual hollow Easter eggs you give at Easter time and is a much more mature selection, which would definitely be appreciated by the grown-ups in your life.”

The pairing guide takes you through what cheese goes with what chocolate - and we made an evening of it cheese and chocolate tasting (we also enjoyed with our own bottle of wine!). The Red Storm cheese and Milk of The Gods were a favourite, alongside the Black Bomber and Surabaya Gold chocolate. A unique gift."
