Fortnum & Mason Pamper Hampers.

I think I speak for all the Ladies when I say we love a pamper and we love a hamper.  A wicker basket, filled with indulgences and treats just shouts tradition.

Now the glorious warm days of summer are sadly behind us and picnics here in the shire are sweet memories my picnic hamper has been stored ready for spring.  However indulgences and treats are a year round necessity.


Luckily Fortnum & Mason do a fantastic range of hampers for every occasion. To see us through autumns lengthening evenings there’s the splendidly named, The Ladies’ Basket. (Just perfect for us) Divine, English-made Truffles, infused with classic London Gin, creamy shea butter Bath Truffles, Fever Tree’s Lemon Tonic and London Dry Gin and an Arthur Sleep Silk Eye Mask.

An ideal gift for yourself, or maybe another…….I’m feeling relaxed already.
