Christmas comes but once a year and every year the opulence of luxury Christmas hampers grows more and more expensive. We have scoured the internet for some of the UK’s most expensive luxury Christmas Hampers and gift baskets. So how much do you think?
Is £500 expensive? That can’t be right as there’s truffles and expensive wines to consider, maybe £2000? Nope, not even close! £35,000? Whoa, now you’re getting carried away! Of course, if a jewellery shop was doing a luxury Christmas hamper and it came with diamonds on the lid, then possibly.
The most expensive luxury Christmas hamper that we could find for 2012 was from Harrods. With the title of Opulence you may agree when you see that the price tag is a phenomenal £10,000. But wait until you see what’s inside, yes we have the full run down at Squillions and all the luxury hamper’s contents.
1. Harrods Opulence Luxury Christmas Hamper
Price: £10,000 / Product Code: 2946740
This Harrods Luxury Christmas hamper has to be one of the most amazing hampers to ever have been assembled. A limited edition and first time offering from this high end department store, it oozes class with every sip and bite.
The alcoholic drinks are some of the best wines around and when they range from £150 to £500 a bottle, of this you can be assured. Take as an example the Tesseron Lot 29 Cognac for £350, it’s a blend that is one of the rarest and oldest and has sat quietly for over three generations to be opened only by you this Christmas.
It would be impossible to list a description of every bottle but take a closer look at the Vega Sicilia Unico 1998, perfect with lamb or beef it sells for £450 individually. The aromas that can overwhelm are cedar-box, tobacco, stewed red fruits, sweet spices and rosemary. Two items that already make the £10,000 tag look a snip.
Wines & Spirits: Champagne Krug Rosé, Champagne Louis Roederer Cristal 2004 Magnum, Château Léoville-Las Cases 1996, Château Lynch-Bages 2000, Château La Fleur-Pétrus 1971, Château Pavie 2003, Vega-Sicilia Unico 1998, Penfolds Grange 2005, Clos de Tart 2007, Gaja Sorì Tildin 2007, Gaja Costa Russi 2007, Gaja Sorì San Lorenzo 2007, Solaia 2008 Magnum, Hermitage Jean-Louis Chave Magnum 2006, Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles Jadot 2008 Magnum, Bâtard-Montrachet Leflaive 2009, Château d’Yquem 2002 Magnum, Champagne Krug Grande Cuvée Magnum, Tesseron Lot 29 Cognac.

This pantry selection is absolutely superb and is crammed with top of the range products that will make most people’s home cooked Christmas meal have the same worth as the Château d’Estoublon Flacon Extra Virgin Olive Oil alone. Imagine a three course Christmas meal being the same price of one bottle of olive oil. The 50ml comes in a spray lookalike perfume bottle and retails for £16.50 consider how much a 750ml bottle would cost.
Confectionery: Chocolate Mint Selection 450g, Selamlique Rose Croquant 240g. This extraordinary luxury Christmas hamper is short on chocolates. However when you take into consideration the three tier Opulence Christmas cake and 1kg Christmas pudding and Christmas fruit cake, you may have to eat and wait before passing comment. The Opulence hamper does only come with six mince pies, you may wish to order more.

Gifts & Accessories: 6 Christmas Crackers, Olive Wood Salami Board, Cheese Slate, Glass Dome. The gifts are a nice reflection on the food supplied from Harrod’s Food Halls and certainly at least a memento from this fantastically assembled luxurious hamper. The offerings in the fresh food area are not without comment either.
Smoked duck breast, duck terrine with chestnuts and wild smoked salmon, can I please, please, pretty please, come round yours for dinner? Scrumptious! And don’t forget the caviar!! The Oscietra Caviar is the world’s rarest and often sells at £250 per 100 grams. The Beluga is also very rich, from the Huso Huso Sturgeon. Not surgeon, sturgeon, although if eating and drinking all of this yourself, you may well need one!
Warning: This luxury Christmas hamper only comes with six Christmas crackers in a box. You may wish to consider buying some more. If you weigh up the amount of alcohol against the gifts, I’m sure you’re expecting more than three people over the festive period!
