  • From Hotel Chocolat to Aldi, from Cadbury to M&S, here are the best chocolate hampers for Christmas 2021.

    Hampers certainly make one of the best Christmas food gifts, especially when they are bursting full of chocolate truffles, dipped biscuits, hot chocolate, and chocolate slabs.

    This year’s collection of chocolate hampers vary in price range from a £13.50 letterbox treat all the way to an extravagant £300 sharing hamper. We’ve included brands such as Chococo, Betty’s, Pierre Marcolini, and the ever-so-popular Hotel Chocolat.

    “Hotel Chocolat is my ‘go-to’ when it comes to choosing the best Christmas food hampers to gift,” says Consumer Editor, Heidi Scrimgeour. “A friend sent me a chocolate hamper for Christmas a few years ago and I still remember the absolute joy of opening a hamper of the most extraordinary chocolate that I’d never buy for myself.”
