Comes from a British term, which refers to a wicker basket, usually large, and is use for the transport of items, generally food--hamper.
There are lots of different hampers and they are called such because of how they are used. A famous hamper that is liked by many is Christmas hamper.
Christmas Hampers are likely to be bigger and have some party or celebratory foods or toys. Each of these hampers contains everything needed to cook a full Christmas dinner. Hampers may also contain related festive foods.
There is also the Charitable Hamper, which we can proudly share with the needy. The Shepherds of Good Hope has a Christmas hamper program where each hamper contains everything that is needed for the needy to have a full Christmas dinner. The Shepherds of Good Hope has been hosting a Christmas Hamper program for a long time.
It’s understandable that we can save more money if we are to buy Christmas hampers for the Christmas festivities. Remember, a donation packed in a hamper adds more delight to the receiver.
