We've rounded up the best Christmas food hampers for this year including newcomers and best sellers from a range of different online retailers. 

If you're looking to give something extra special this Christmas, how about a Christmas food hamper? From budget hampers that don't shy away from quality, to overindulgent, extravagant hampers that certainly have the 'wow' factor, this year's collection is stronger than ever and includes an array of the best Christmas food for 2022.

How do we know these hampers are the best of the best? Well, we tried and tested all of them of course. Hampers are rated on value for money, the products that are included in each one, and how tasty they are too. We've ensured that all the hampers included can be purchased online and sent directly to the lucky receiver's door in time for Christmas. Highlights from this year include hampers from Bettys, Harvey Nichols, and Fortnum & Mason - some of which include the best Christmas puddings and best Christmas cakes for 2022. We've also included a range of gift boxes and baskets. 

"No matter the occasion, a hamper is always a lovely gift. Hampers are practical yet extravagant and make the lucky recipient feel spoiled - the perfect present," says Consumer Editor, Heidi Scrimgeour. "When buying a hamper think about how it will be enjoyed. In a busy houseful of celebrating relatives, a hamper full of important staples like Christmas pudding, cheese, or biscuits will go down well with the host. But for new parents or someone having a quieter Christmas, some truly indulgent festive treats like posh chocolates, rich chutneys, or a bottle of something special to drink will be very gladly received."

In just a few minutes, we cooked up a delicious meal of mushroom and black truffle linguine, pimped up with a drizzle of truffle balsamic glaze and dipping oil. It was delicious, and still left us plenty of ingredients to make another dish or two. The packaging is also very high-quality - the black wooden tray looks perfect on our shelf, and has been so handy for storing spices and other store cupboard ingredients."
