Traditional Yet Modern Hamper Boxes


If anyone asked you what a hamper was, you would possibly say something that it is a large intertwined or wicker basket filled with a variety of goodies and you would be right, but only back then. Because now with the advancements in every field, the hamper box has also evolved according to the requirements of the time.


History and Evolution of Hamper Box:

One of the initially noted uses of hampers goes back to the 11th century and William the Conqueror who is accredited with conveying them to England. The word ‘hamper’ comes from the French ‘hanapier’ meaning ‘a case for chalices’. The practice of giving hampers as gifts began much later, in the Victorian period. Well-to-do families would place together a basket of food and drink and give it to their workforce at Christmas. And afterward, the passage of time and the development of the railway system permissible for gifts to be sent over much longer distances, swelling the popularity of Christmas gift hampers all over.

As it became easier to import goods from countries all over the world, the contents of gift hamper improved and expanded. Although they were traditionally just for Christmas, their popularity meant they were used for other events, including as gifts for birthdays. During World War One, gift hampers were bestowed to the Red Cross to be sent to soldiers and prisoners of war overseas. Giving them a welcome care package and a taste of home on the front lines. What we would call a gift hamper in one country is often referred to as a gift basket, rather than a hamper, in other countries. So it proves that its name varies from culture to culture and country to country.

Hampers have evolved over time to meet the ever-changing inclinations of society. Over the past decades, traditional hampers have usually encompassed food and drink items carried in a wickerwork basket to take on a day out, to a show, or to enjoy plunging into on a warm summer day and on a picnic. In more modern times hampers have advanced into a comprehensive gift and are given as a present to thank you, happy birthday, Merry Christmas, and for other different events. These food gifts are often denoted as gift hampers for this reason and may or may not comprise the outmoded bamboo basket. Instead, more commonly this food hamper includes a gift box, a gift bag, an open basket or is presented on a gift tray.
