Here at Retro Sweet, we have a number of products which could be the perfect gift for your sweet toothed friend or loved one. We think our Retro Sweet Hampers make the perfect gift, as they are lovingly presented in a wicker basket, and can be personalised too! 

Whatever the occasion, whether it is for a birthday, wedding or just because… these hampers offer a great alternative to a normal present, and can be repurposed to be used again after all the sweets have gone!

Picnic Baskets          

Spring is certainly the time to dig out your picnic blanket and get down to the park and soak up some of the early signs of warmer weather sneaking in. We’re advocates of recycling too, so we love to see how people repurpose their hamper baskets and we think turning them into picnic baskets is certainly a great way to get more out of your Retro Sweet Hamper after the sweets have gone.

An opportunity to be creative

Each one of our hampers are presented in a wicker basket, with straps and a handle so it can easily be transported. Not only does this present the perfect opportunity to make sure your gift will be remembered for years to come, as in its new purpose it will be continually used and it will always remind the recipient of its original use as a present, and it also ensures it is the gift that keeps on giving.

Repurposing your wicker retro sweet hamper to turn it into a picnic basket couldn’t be easier either, it gives you a great opportunity to be creative and choose different fabrics etc. to put inside the basket. Take a look at some ideas on Pinterest to get you started! You can also choose some picnic crockery to be put in. Our top tip for if you are looking for plates to go inside your repurposed picnic basket is to stop by local charity shops. You can usually find a great selection of tea sets which will work perfectly for your picnic basket.
