Let’s get all studious and philosophical for a minute.  Let’s consult the experts and have an adult discussion.  Sitting here, in amongst the gorgeous gift boxes and lovely smelling deliciously packaged products, we sit and contemplate the ultimate question (for us anyway) WHY DO WE GIVE GIFTS?

Seems like an easy question to answer doesn’t it? Behind our generosity and our gift giving are a long list of valid reasons – to say thank you, goodbye, hello and welcome, to apologise or acknowledge someone’s hard work.  The list goes on and on.  We even have a ‘just because’ reason – which we think is the best reason of them all.

When blogger and author Dan Ariely wrote An Irrational Guide To Gifts he asked people what they thought made a good gift – he wanted to find out the basic principles and characteristics of good gifts.   He came to an interesting conclusion – the ideal gift isn’t always about getting the person something that they can’t afford, or something they have no idea that they want.  Rather it’s all about alleviating the guilt associated with the purchase of an item.  Whaaaaaaaaat?

Basically, when you hop online at and buy a loved one something decadent and special from our amazing selection of luxurious products and specially designed gift hampers, you are giving someone something they wouldn’t have necessarily bought for themselves.  You are spoiling them and telling them that YOU DESERVE THIS GORGEOUS GIFT.

I don’t think I would buy myself a bottle of Veuve, just because, but if a loved one wanted to make me feel special then they could always get me the Veuve Cliquot Brut and Chocolates.

Or when a beautiful baby is born into this world and you want to say welcome, their mum and dad is hardly going to get it a tutu when there are nappies and singlets to get.  Give the little bubba something super special like the Starry Night Darcy Skirt by Oobi.

Remember, whenever you give a gift you make an impression.  What you give and how you give it makes a statement about love and appreciation and emotion.  At Pamper Hamper Gifts we take gift giving seriously and pride ourselves on being the most prestigious, efficient, impressive and luxurious gift box and hamper company in the country.  From the vast selection of products to the easy ordering and delivery process, we are your one stop shop and take the guesswork and stress out of gift giving.

Hampers Do Make The Ideal Gift

There is something really exciting about having an unexpected gift hamper arrive on your doorstep in time for Christmas, on your desk at work on your birthday or to your hospital bed while you are receiving medical care.

The thrill of unpacking layer upon layer of delicious food and drink or indulgent beauty products not knowing what you’ll find next and not wanting it to end, well that’s why we do what we do!
