First things first, find yourself a wicker basket (you may have one from a present you have received) or alternatively a nice card box. Marks & Spencer actually have stunning DIY hamper sets which include the basket, crepe paper and labels.

Next you will need something to sit your treats on. Straw or shredded crepe paper is perfect and you can get this in most art and hobby shops.

You will also need some cellophane, string and labels to make this look really spectacular.

Now for the fun part – filling your hamper with some delicious edible treats. Alternatively you could use these great edible gifts as stocking fillers
