One of our new Scottish hampers has been chosen as the 'Best Luxury Mother's Day Hamper' and given a five-star rating in a list of Mother's Day gifts from brands including Arran, Rick Stein, Farhi, Lindt, Lush and The Body Shop.
The Highland Fling Luxury Hamper was chosen as the 'Best Luxury Mother's Day Hamper' and rated five stars out of five in The Independent's recent IndyBest '24 best Mother's Day hampers' guide.
When deciding the top treat, IndyBest studied competitors and carried out thorough taste tests, comparing like-for-like where possible and also looked at the quality of the product, longevity and value for money, as well as shipping speed, food miles, environmental impact, packaging, presentation and the all-important wow factor.
About our £200 choice, the guide's author, Clare O'Reilly, wrote: "Everything about this luxury hamper is note perfect, not least the beautiful presentation box it comes in.
"Packed with award-winning ingredients from across the Baxter's range, it's one of the only hampers on the list with something to wear as well as things to eat and candles too.
"The gorgeous Kinalba cashmere socks are soft, comfortable and cosy. Highland chocolatier Iain Burnet's beautiful velvet covered heart shaped box of chocolates feels like they're too beautiful to eat (almost). The three conserves; blackcurrant and cassis, damson and sloe gin and figgy pudding are delicious and the jar sizes are big - 245g each.
"Scottish Island Bakery also provide the award-winning lemon melt biscuits and Lost Sweets of Scotland contributed a beautiful bottle of Esterlin Champagne complete with the edible side of the hamper. Candle Maker Essence of Harris provides the candle seilebost - named after one of the beaches on the pristine Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides. Definitely our favourite candle of all the hampers tested too."
Our Highland Fling comprises of fruity conserves and jam made exclusively for our collection by Baxters, award-winning Velvet Truffles and pralines from Iain Burnett, the Highland Chocolatier, cosy cashmere bed socks from Kinalba, a fragrant Seilebost Black Pomegranate scented candle from Essence of Harris, best-selling biscuits from Island Bakery on the Isle of Mull, traditional Scottish sweets and medal-winning Esterlin Champagne Brut Eclat.
