DIY Chocolate Hamper

Xmas Hamper

I love a good DIY project so when I was faced with trying to find a gift for my secret santa recipient, I thought it would be the perfect excuse to be a little creative.

A chocolate hamper seemed to be the go to option since there is surely no one on this planet that doesn’t like chocolate right? This hamper is super easy to do, requires very little effort and is sure to blow everyone away!

Firstly you’ll need the following

  • Cardboard Box
  • Chocolates
  • Wrapping Paper
  • Cellophane
  • Gift Tags/Ribbons
  • Tissue Paper/Newspaper
  • Fairy Lights (optional)
  • Sellotape
  • Scissors

Step 1: Grab yourself a cardboard box. I got mine from the shelves of a supermarket so this didn’t cost me a penny! Baskets can be pretty pricey so this is the perfect alternative. Wrap your cardboard box with the wrapping paper of your choice – no one will ever know that this was ever a free cardboard box!

Step 2: Each of the chocolates in my box cost me £1. Since this is the Christmas season many supermarkets are selling these in abundance so you’ll be sure to find chocolates like these for a pound in any store. Place some tissue paper/newspaper inside the box and rearrange all your chocolates to fit on top of this.

Step 3: If you wish to use fairy lights, then place around the box and secure in place.

Step 4: Cover the whole box with cellophane and add the accessories/ribbons/gift tags of your choice. If you don’t have any cellophane then you can easily just leave it as it is.


And voila, there you have it….the perfect Christmas hamper for Chocolate Lovers!


Happy Holidays! x
