As a rule Christmas hampers tend to be fairly rubbish affairs stuffed with weird dried fruit and odd combination pickles that chances are will reach their sell by date before you get round to sampling them.
However, ace British knitwear company John Smedley have come up with an alternative hamper this year which might be pricey, but is a must have addition to our Christmas list. For your £259 you get a classic Bobby pull over – which are made from top notch merino wool and come in lots of different colours – a Thymus Merino wool scarf packaged in a very striking branded wooden box. They also throw in a £25 voucher and some special wool wash too.
You’ll have to get moving though if you want one. You need to order by Monday 19th if you want the box to arrive before Christmas.
