The tradition of Christmas hampers dates to the 18th century when Christmas gifts for staff would comprise baskets filled with seasonal goodies as a gesture of employer appreciation.  Today Christmas gift baskets have evolved into what we commonly term hampers, but they are still a symbol of warmth, generosity, and festive spirit.

At THEMPC, we carry forward this British tradition by crafting bespoke hampers for Christmas that are not just gifts but joyful expressions of employer gratitude and goodwill.

Unlock the magic of the season and present your team with a token of your appreciation!

Adding that personal touch to an employee’s Christmas gift shows you care

Imagine that feeling of receiving a Christmas hamper from your employer where you can see the considerable time and effort taken to get its appearance and contents just right – for you.  Professionally presented, the hamper is personalised not only to reflect your company’s brand, but also ensure that the gifts inside are useful, memorable, and thoughtful.

Here’s a few personalisation examples:

  • Print branded hamper boxes with your individual employee names
  • Enclose a gift card or note with a personal message from a team leader or manager
  • Choose gourmet treats and other goodies tailored to individuals’ dietary requirements or preferences e.g. gluten free & vegan, nut allergy, favourite tipple

If that all sounds splendid, but you’re wondering how you’ll make it happen in between your daily workload, read on..

Family hampers unlock festive celebrations for TD Synnex staff


To add an enchanting touch to TD Synnex staff Christmas hampers, we crafted custom 'magic' bath bombs, each concealing a 'Santa's key.' The key, when presented to children on Christmas Eve, was to be placed on the doorstep so Santa could get in! It magnified the holiday magic and anticipation, empowering them to ensure Santa's timely gift delivery – a truly enchanting experience!"

When should you order your staff Christmas gifts this year?

The best time to talk to our team about Christmas is between August and October – it’s when you see the first signs of Christmas decorations taking up shelf space in shops or your favourite restaurant advertising their Christmas menu.

With our efficient ordering process, we can turn an idea into reality within 4-6 weeks, but being an even earlier bird also pays off because it can provide you with many more gift options (potentially budget saving too) because some items may have longer lead times especially if you want that personalised touch or something unique.

What are you waiting for? Call 01256 352415 and talk to a member of our team.

What budget do you need for a Christmas hamper?

At Christmas you can provide a tax-free gift to an employee if it’s £50 or under, so our solutions will naturally take this into consideration as well as any cost per employee limit you provide.  For a hamper we can design something for any size budget – big or small – and our years of experience show us that some of the best-loved hamper gifts are the simple stuff such as:

  • Premium brand popcorn
  • Mini bottles of prosecco (which THEMPC can include because we have a alcohol licence)
  • Luxury biscuits
  • Christmas pudding
  • Fun festive game

Making hamper giving ‘ho’ ‘ho’ ‘ho’ so simple for Google Chrome 


The MPC team streamlined the staff gifting process for Google Chrome by designing a branded 'click-to-claim' page. This innovative approach empowered staff to claim their Christmas gift directly from THEMPC, eliminating the need for the Google Chrome team to tackle the tedious administrative tasks like data collection and logistics. But that's not all; we added a touch of personalisation by including a festive gift card with each pack for that extra Christmas magic.
