What could be lovelier than receiving a Christmas hamper brimming with gourmet treats and wine? The Providore has made gift-giving a cinch with its fabulous range of festive hampers, with an optional complimentary gift message card to boot.
Starting from $95, the beautifully packaged hampers are filled with a curated selection from the gourmet grocer, perfect for those who enjoy the luxe things in life. Expect Christmas table staples, epicurean pantry treats and indulgent confectionery, alongside posh bottles of the finest champagne and chablis. Want to customise your own hamper? Drop them a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll be happy to help.
Luscious Christmas panettone is yet another reason why we love the year-end festivities. The Providore’s version is made in Italy and blends the traditional aroma of fresh bread with the delicate scent of sweet cake. Bellissimo!
And there’s even less reason to whip out the wooden spoon this Christmas, thanks to the handcrafted stollen bread ($28), a traditional festive German bread baked with rum and nuts. A Christmas bestseller, The Providore fruit cake ($29) is made with rum-soaked fruit, festive spices and topped with icing sugar, and guaranteed to be a hit at any Christmas lunch or dinner gathering.
