\\\ Pet Hampers

Whether it’s Easter, Christmas, a birthday event, or just a special surprise there’s plenty available for dogs and cats.
Pet rabbits and other small pets now catered for with smaller festival treats such as Cabor Easter eggs, available from our quality and dedicated pet UK suppliers.
So what are hampers?
Generally the word ‘hamper’ conjures up a wicker basket filled with delicious treats, the most UK iconic hamper being Fortnum and Masons known throughout the world as a gorgeous gift to receive, with the wicker basket emblazoned with ‘F & M’ which can be kept afterwards, recycled, and used around the home or even in the car boot filled with your pet essential travel items.
These prestigious baskets are the luxury end of hampers, where you can order from the businesses’ own online selection or handpick items to create your very own selection for your lucky recipient.
What goes into a pet hamper?
Pet hamper company’s send hampers full of special items such as luxury gourmet pet foods and pet treats, special drying dog towels, all kinds of pet toys, grooming and pampering treats, dog collars and leads!

Tips when buying hampers
- Hampers sell out fast for festivity events such as Christmas and Easter, orders need to be in early.
- Do look out for discounts when buying as a new first customer order.
- Check if the company offers free delivery.
- Message the company at the time of the order if you need the hamper to arrive by a certain date.
- Some company’s offer personalisation on boxes and cards. Personalised orders are generally non-returnable. Make sure you’ve spelt the name right!
- Avoid buying dog collars and dog jackets if you’re unsure of your recipients dog size. This prevents disappointment and unnecessary returns.
- Ask the company if you’re unsure about suitability of food products for the breed.
- Businesses try to use recyclable cardboard treat boxes – dispose of appropriately when unpacked.
- If completely unsure about what your recipient may like, buy a gift card as most company’s offer these.
- If you’ve received super service ensure you leave a 5 stat review on social media.
Hampers made history back in William The Conquers day, during the late 11th century, allegedly being gifts in covered baskets containing wine goblets.
The Victorians who particularly are noted for celebrating Christmas and introducing most of our modern day customs where the wealthy are credited with filling baskets full of foods and treats and giving as gifts. This continued with long established stores (established circa 1707) such as Fortnum and Masons continuing the tradition.
There’s no specific date when pet hampers appeared in the UK but according to lots of pet statistics, 21 million cat and dog owners like to pamper their pooches more and more spending many millions on treats each year.
