Christmas With Harrods
Is there anything more luxurious than a Harrods Christmas hamper? I don't think so! When an email arrived about reviewing a Harrods Christmas hamper, I have to admit than I did squeal slightly and then even more so when this amazing *and huge* box arrived filled with a selection of beautiful Harrods Christmas products. There are so many Harrods Christmas hampers to choose from with prices ranging from a surprisingly affordable £25 to over £2000 so there's a hamper for everyone.

I chose the gorgeous *Harrods 'The Christmas Carol' Hamper (£100) which contains selection of festive favourites and essentials as well as a luxurious festive bauble to adorn your tree. The hamper contains: Spiced Christmas Coffee, Spiced Black Tea, Spiced Plum & Fig Jam, Clementine & Sweet Orange Marmalade, Winter Spiced Biscuits, Honey & Clementine Biscuits, Brandy Butter and a Classic Christmas Pudding.
Christmas With Harrods
*Harrods Winter Spiced Biscuits with Golden Sparkle 
Would it really be Christmas without biscuits and sparkle? No! I love these biscuits, they're so delicious and perfect for the festive season as they are rich with mixed spices, treacle and sultanas so they are bound to be an all round favourite. As with all of the products in the hamper, the packaging is delightfully festive and would aesthetically make a exquisite festive gift.

*Harrods Honey & Clementine Biscuits with Golden Sparkle 
Again the packaging is gorgeous as are the contents; you really can't go wrong with all butter biscuits with honey and a sprinkle of glittering golden sparkle. They are perfect to share over the festive period with friends and family...or just for yourself! Both of the biscuit options within the hamper are very moreish and indulgent.

*Harrods Spiced Black Tea 
I've always been a coffee lover but this year I've been venturing into tea, particularly green, mint and herbal and iced tea but I think I have a new favourite. The tea is spiced with ginger, cloves, orange and cinnamon; it is deliciously christmassy! The flavours are a favourite of mine all year round but particularly during the colder months and it's perfect as a autumnal/winter warmer - I adore this tea, it's subtly spiced and slightly sweet.

*Harrods Christmas Spiced Coffee
Aside the hamper box, this packaging is the most stunning; the Harrods wax seal effect detail is a luxe touch! It's a medium roast Arabica coffee with flavours of cinnamon, hazelnut and chocolate - yes, yes and yes. Festive flavoured coffees are a perk of the somewhat chaotic and stressful season and this Harrods offering is definitely my new favourite. I adore the hazelnut and subtly spiced flavours but I don't personally get that much chocolate coming through. However, the coffee is delicious, indulgent and when enjoyed with oat milk, it creates a moreish and lusciously creamy coffee.

*Harrods Classic Christmas Pudding 
Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a classic, rich Christmas pudding to finish. The Harrods Christmas pudding has been matured for 9 months and has been specifically created using the time honoured Harrods recipe so you know it's going to be sumptous and the perfect end to Christmas day.

*Harrods Brandy Butter with Courvoisier VS Cognac 
I haven't actually tried brandy butter before but this one sounds gorgeously festive with Courvoisier VS Cognac; it would be a perfect accompaniment to mince pies, Christmas pudding, bread and butter pudding, plum pudding or as a more unique addition to my warm, delicious two-tiered chocolate cake!

*Harrods Spiced Plum & Fig Jam 
I'm not a huge fan of jam; however I do love it within a victoria sponge cake and I'm definitely going to be making a christmassy victoria sponge with this uniquely flavoured jam - I think it would be a great adaption for festive gatherings! A Christmas roulade, bakewell tart or trifle would be great too.

*Harrods Clementine & Orange Marmalade 
I love marmalade on toast as a quintessential British breakfast or afternoon tea option but I haven't tried a more festive variation; this sweet and zesty marmalade contains a delicious orange liquor to add a festive touch!

Lastly within the decadent hamper is a lovely *Harrods Christmas bauble featuring the Harrods logo which would make a fantastic addition to the christmas tree this year - adding a touch of luxury to your tree or the lucky recipients.

Overall, as this is my first Harrods Christmas hamper, I can honestly say that I'm very impressed with the range, quality and number of items included in 'The Christmas Carol' hamper and it looks so stunningly festive and beautiful, it would make an indulgent and thoughtful gift for anyone! Alternatively you could host your own festive afternoon tea to share the hamper with friends and family over the festive season. I rate the majority of the items I feature on my blog but we all know what the rating for this hamper will be...★★★★★, 5/5. I just want to say thank you to the lovely people at Harrods for my gorgeous hamper!

What do you think of The Christmas Carol hamper? Have you tried any of the Harrods festive (or non-festive) hampers?
