Macknade Christmas Hampers are Back!

A hamper is the perfect gift to send (and receive) at Christmas and leading independent food brand Macknade has created a wonderful selection to choose from, which are all available for nationwide delivery.

Whether you are looking for the ideal selection of Christmas cheeses for your boxing day cheese board or want to send a gift to a loved one showcasing the best that Kent has to offer, Macknade has a hamper or gift box just for you.

You can even choose to take the stress out of Christmas dinner itself by ordering the Christmas Feast Hamper… sparing you the need to do the big Christmas food shop and instead having it delivered directly to your door!

Choose from the following delicious hampers, all available to order online for delivery to England, Wales & Central Scotland from October 1st.
