Cook & Nelson is shaking up the traditional hamper just in time for Christmas

Earning its stellar reputation by sourcing premium culinary products from top producers around the world, it comes as no surprise that Cook & Nelson is ensuring its new line of hampers transcends the ordinary. Choosing to discard the conventional wicker-basket-with-cellophane formula, it has teamed up with cardboard engineer Mat Bogust to create packaging that aptly reflects the beauty and intrigue of the products housed within. The intended result creates a process of unwrapping, designed to build anticipation and inject a touch of the magic often missing from modern-day gift-giving.

Some of the artisanal fare comprising the packages includes Five Olive Oil (from Thessaloniki), Haku Shoyu Soy Sauce (from Kyoto) and McClure’s Pickles (from Detroit). Redefining the hamper as we know it, Cook & Nelson has elevated it beyond the realm of hodgepodge products and school hall auctions, turning it into a premium gift to be proud of.
