How to... Create a Care Package

Right now, it can be hard not to feel a little bit helpless when friends and loved ones are struggling, and we aren’t allowed to give them a hug or even visit – but you can still show someone that you love them and you’re thinking of them, with a gorgeous personalised care package from Taste of Bath!


Did you know that you can use our Create Your Own service to design your very own hamper at NO extra charge, and include all their favourite goodies? You can filter all our products by category, so it couldn’t be simpler to find exactly what you’re after. Whether you want to go for our free packaging option and just send a little something, or create a luxury hamper in one of our gorgeous signature Bath Boxes, we’ve got options to suit every budget and situation.

Here’s a few ideas for fabulous Create Your Own combos, to get you started…


Afternoon tea

When you’re having a rough day, it’s hard to beat a hot cuppa and a sweet treat. Pair our bestselling Bath Breakfast Tea (which comes with a cute teapot-shaped tea strainer, making it perfect for a gift) with a selection box of the Best Ever Brownie Co’s fabulously fudgy brownies, some delicate Choux Box macarons, Seven Hills chocolate-covered honeycomb, or maybe just all of the above!


Pick Me Up

Having a few special things to look forward to in the mornings can really help kickstart anyone’s day. We highly recommend our special Limited Edition Bath Coffee, or if your loved one has a coffee machine that uses pods, did you know that Colonna Coffee’s brilliant coffee pods are compatible with most machines, including Nespresso? To serve alongside with hot toast, get a jar of In A Pickle’s Christmas Morning Marmalade with warming ginger, Heavenly Hedgerows’ Foraged Elderberry Jam, or Seven Hills artisan peanut butter.


 Cocktail Night

In dire need of a proper catch-up? Why not send a friend all the ingredients for a brilliant cocktail night at home, and get together over video call? We’ve got plenty of irresistible booze options, but we highly recommend mixing Bath Gin or perhaps Wraxall Vineyard’s Somerset Sparkling Wine with Hullabaloos’ Still Elderflower Presse for a quick & easy cocktail – plus some Pistachio Provenance nuts to serve alongside.


 Foodie Favourites

It’s probably fair to say we’re all getting a little fed up of our own cooking, so why not send someone a few fabulous new ingredients and foodie treats to discover? A few of our more unusual but outstandingly delicious offerings include The H’eggs Company’s chickpea casarecce, Somerset Charcuterie’s chorizo made with local cider, and Seven Hills artisan almond butter, which is brilliant for all sorts of baked goodies.


Don’t forget the personal touch…

Whether you’re choosing one of our ready-made hampers or making your own, the most important bit is showing your loved ones that you care. You can include a personal message absolutely free with any purchase, so make sure you remember to add a few kind words to your gift when prompted.

It’s never been more important to reach out and send a little bit of love than it is right now, and the small things really do make a big difference – why not send someone a lovely surprise today?
