In modern days gift hampers and collection of small treats have become very popular and fashionable.
However, the concept of the hampers originally started in France and was introduced to Britain in the 11th century by William the Conqueror.
The tradition of gift hampers has been very popular around the world. In Chinese weddings it is a common custom for bride and grooms’ families to exchange gifts in a bamboo basket rich in red colours. Decorating large trays full of various colourful gifts for the bride and groom and their families is an old tradition in South Asian weddings. Giving assortment of gifts to include all members of the family is a very welcoming tradition in the Middle Eastern region too.
