How to... Create a Care Package

It gives us a warm fuzzy feeling when we see that our customers are using Taste of Bath to send care packages to their friends and loved ones. There's nothing like a surprise package of goodies to make you feel loved and let you know people are thinking of you! And did you know that you can create a fabulous personalised care package at no extra charge, using our Create Your Own Hamper service?


The service is super duper easy to use - you can mix and match from our entire range of food and drink, using our handy filters, to find all their favourites. And whether you want to go for our branded cardboard box option (just £2!) and just send a little something, or create a luxury hamper in one of our gorgeous signature gift boxes, we’ve got options to suit every budget and situation. Find out more about how it works here.

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, Coco Chemistry's Chocolate 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, or Heavenly Hedgerows’ delicious Foraged Elderberry Jam.


 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 - for a classic G&T, combine Bath Gin with Lovely Drinks' Indian Tonic Water (or mix it up with their fabulous Cucumber Tonic Water), choose from our selection of craft beers and cider, or for a really special occasion, pop some bubbly - we love Wraxall Vineyard’s Somerset Sparkling Wine. Don't forget the bar snacks - we suggest Hope & Arley's roasted salted nuts, Chorizo Nibblets from Somerset Charcuterie, and perhaps The Fine Cheese Co's irresistibly moreish Mini Roquefort Crackers.


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.

The small things really do make a big difference – why not reach out and send someone a lovely surprise today?
