Christmas is a time to pour yourself a cup of hot chocolate, sit by a roaring fire and show thanks to those you love and respect, and this includes colleagues, too. The tradition of selecting personal and thoughtful gifts for clients and workmates stretches back years – great conduct equals great business, after all.

So, what could be better than a selection of carefully curated and delicious treats and gifts all delivered in one perfect bundle? As Pierre Corneille said, “The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.” And so, with that in mind, we’ve done the hard work for you and compiled a divine selection of hamper options for you to choose from to put a smile on your colleague’s faces. In fact, this assortment is so tantalising, we suspect you’ll treat yourself to one, too – consider it a “well done’’ for all your hard work in the office this year.


Many adore the Santa Cutie. Why? Well, because it contains a gorgeous selection of cheesy Emmental and gouda rounds to tuck into along with your favourite crackers. Oh, and it even comes with a bottle of the fragrant Harvey Nichols sloe gin that’ll go down a treat come the evening. Plus, there’s even a mini Christmas pudding, and unbeatable butter shortbread to munch on after the parlour games have been played (and won) and it’s time to settle down with a festive film. Or you could combine fabulous fizz, truffles and luxury nibbles in the aptly named All Things Nice, a selection sure to make someone feel loved this holiday season.


To kick start a Christmas gathering, The Cocktail Party Hat Box contains everything your colleague need to re-create their favourite tipple. Whether they enjoy the sharp taste of a Spritz, the strength of a Martini or are never opposed to a classic G&T, there’s everything they need to enjoy a well-earned drink. There’s even a selection of divine nibbles, including smoky nuts and green pitted olives, for when it’s time for a snack. Want even more good news? The hamper has been created in collaboration with Campari who celebrates 100 years of the inimitable Negroni, enjoyed by Ernest Hemingway, Anthony Bourdain and now, your hardest worker employee.


There’s no denying that Christmas is a time of indulgence. So, we’re sure you can only agree that the festive season means having one eye on the liquor cabinet at all times. And now, your employee can enjoy a glass of everything from rum to port as the evenings draw in and they can put their feet up. Browse our handpicked edit that includes The British Isles hamper packed with Scottish, Irish and English whisky’s as well as the The Gin O'Clock assortment that’ll get their tastebuds tingling courtesy of the Manchester Wild Spirit bottle along with four botanical tonics. Cheers to that!


Sometimes, waking up with a clear head can sometimes feel like the better option. So, if your colleague would prefer to avoid the booze at Christmas time, they can enjoy our selection of alcohol-free hampers that’ll still quench their thirst without the worry of a hangover.The Alcohol-Free Sparkling Wine Trio includes a bottle of Sparkling Chardonnay sans booze along with a 0% rosé and a Thomson & Scott Noughty Organic Alcohol-Free Sparkling Wine. There’s even an assortment from Sipsmith that includes a bottle of the FreeGilder Juniper & Citrus Alcohol-Free sprit accompanied by four tonic waters and a carafe. We’ll drink to that!


It’s safe to say that the run-up to Christmas can be a slightly tumultuous affair, what with attending parties, wrapping presents and filling up the kitchen cabinets with everything required to fill bellies come the big day. Which is why, here at Harvey Nichols, we’ve created a range of hampers to present to your hard-working members of staff to remind them to take some time out and indulge in self-care. Pick from The Ultimate Skincare assortment that’s packed to the brim with 111SKIN’s innovative formulas that’ll clear fine lines and wrinkles in no time to The Beauty Sleep selection that includes the Midnight Recovery Concentrate from Kiehl’s along with a Slip silk pillowcase that’ll aide toward a peaceful night’s sleep.
