The idea of gift baskets full of treats originated in France and was first introduced to England in the 11th century. However, giving hampers as gifts for Christmas only became popular during the Victorian times in the 1800's. It was a custom for bosses to give a Christmas hamper to their employees and clients. Food hampers for servants and charities were also popular. While still being extremely popular Christmas gifts, with the advances in fast courier services, hampers are now given as gifts throughout the year.
