Picnic hampers offer a way to celebrate any occasion. There are gift options for many occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations. However, selecting a gift for other occasions can be difficult. What is appropriate for a promotion at work? What gift will work for someone moving into a flat for the first time? Picnic hampers offer a unique option in many situations. The choice of hamper can provide a small treat or present something in which to indulge. The gift giver can make that selection with the special person in mind.
A good bottle of wine is the essential item for any picnic hampers. Wine needs to have the body and flavour profile that works well with the foods in the hampers. Many choose a fuller red wine that usually works well with cheese and mousse seen in many picnic hampers. Wines from the Bordeaux region of France are a good selection for such a hamper. They offer a rich deep flavour with complex notes and hints of fruit.
The rich red Bordeaux needs cheese and mousse or pate that will work well with the flavours. Nice white stilton with apricots offers the strong flavours necessary for the red wine while also giving a nice fruity hint. A Wensleydale with cranberries is another option. It has a slightly honey note with acidity thrown in. Cheddar is always a good option along with biscuits. A nice chicken liver mousse brings the picnic hampers to completion. The choices offer the gift giver options for that special person.
