Hampers can make amazing presents, I personally love being the recipient of one, but for a lot of people they’ll always contain oneHomemade Italian Feast hamper or two items that they don’t like. Have you ever thought of putting together your own hamper instead? You will get a lot more for your money as I found out putting together this Italian Feast full of Ciao Gusto products available from Ocado with a budget of £50.
