The festive season brings joy and excitement, but also a long list of people to buy presents for!

With less than 50 days until Christmas, ALDI Australia has developed an easy cheat-sheet for creating personalised Christmas hampers to show how special loved ones are while remaining budget friendly!

ALDI Shopping Expert, Kylie Warnke, says: “Building your own hamper is a thoughtful, creative and cost-effective present idea that everyone loves to receive. Not only can you create the ultra-personal gift that really shows your loved ones how well you know them, but you can choose which products you know they’ll appreciate while also sticking to your budget. It really is the perfect gift for the notoriously difficult to buy for family member, friend or co-worker, after all who doesn’t love receiving a thoughtful gift full of delicious Christmas goodies?”

ALDI has put together a guide to creating 7 different Christmas hampers that can be created using ALDI’s Christmas seasonal range and award-winning products, such as gourmet festive cakes, delicious fudge, Champagne, and mince pies.

ALDI’s quick-and-easy guide has the perfect hamper ideas to gift to one person, a couple or an entire family. Whether it’s for an auntie, a friend, a new love interest, the kids’ favourite teacher, or the neighbours next door, ALDI customers can create a gift that will look great, taste amazing and importantly won’t break the bank. For shoppers looking to make that DIY gift giving experience that bit easier, Hamper Gift Baskets can be picked up in store from 16 November.
