Holiday Gift Idea: Christmas Hamper

Leave a comment
Simply Hamper

Christmas will soon be here and it’s that special time of the year. You want to show someone just how much you care about them with a special gift. But, what?


Think outside the box, they’ve said.

But, have you heard “Good thing come in a box” saying? Ok, maybe not, because I’ve just made it out. Seriously, think about the excitement opening a gift box? That moment when you pull out the ribbon bow could be one of the best moment you have.

Now that I think about it, think outside the box does sounds like a free packaging campaign ad, no?


So, here’s the idea, a simple humble Christmas hamper and it’s not a boring one, I promise. All it takes is a little time and love.



Nothing beats good smell that comes from an interesting container, like an antique looking glass jar we have here. Once your gift is opened, your friend is bound to liven up the party by giving it a light.


Homemade Cookie.

The. Best. Thing. Ever. Even if your friend doesn’t love to bake, nobody refuses a homemade cookie full of warmth.



When coffee paired with a cookie, nothing is short of divine, and if the recipient can’t appreciate it…nah, it won’t happened. Especially a freshly ground one, that just being ground right before you put it on the jar, wow what a treat!

And nevertheless, sometimes, packing and presentation is everything. Velvet box and gold wording on top pump up the luxury feel for sure. And a beautiful ribbon will make it perfect. That’s a recipe for a happy gift receiver! Simply Hampers knows best.

Market / Paper & Ink

The first bud of spring is something to celebrate. Our peach tree is blooming and we’ve got some petals on the ground already. I have a feeling, spring is at the corner already, it should be here anytime soon!


To celebrate spring, we’ve decided to greet our customers in a closer look. We’ll be participating in Craft Central‘s Pop Up Market. A little about Craft Central; they began as a beautiful local market on the Miramar peninsula. They have developed into a vibrant Wellington market that is supportive of local crafters, giving them an outlet to showcase their designs to the wider region while extending crafting opportunities to the community through art, craft and design workshops.

Check the details below and make sure to save the date!

Craft Central Market
12 – 6pm, August 18, 2018
Courtenay Central, 100 Courtenay Pl
Wellington, New Zealand

We’ll be selling stationeries, notebook, greeting card, gift tag on the spot. While presenting samples of our custom map, illustration and portrait. Have a sneak peek to our new collection, share your stories with us, take a personal look and clear our the questions on your head.

There will be a special discount code for our ETSY STORE , only given to walk-in customers through our booth.

Of course there will be a lot more to see, food, craft and fun! Pssst! It’s during Wellington On A Plate week, you can grab your burger in one hand, cocktail on the other and pay a visit. No excuse, remember it’s a ONE DAY ONLY event, make sure you don’t miss it out!

Heartfelt Wedding Vows that Makes You Cry

Hand Lettering / quote / Round Up


Remember that moment when you are looking for a tissue in the middle of your bestfriend’s wedding?  You’re so touched that when you came back home, you immediately take a piece of paper and start writing your own vow to the (imaginary) fiance.

That’s totally ok, not judging. Better prepared than sorry, right?

To give you more inspiration, here’s some of real life wedding vow verses that touched our soft heart.


Let’s say those words together, awww….

The Art of Custom Portrait

Leave a comment
Drawing & Illustration / Paper & Ink / Simply Hamper

We love gift, we all love giving gifts.

For me, what’s hard on that is for closest friend, parents, spouse, colleagues, in laws, we bought them gift each and every year. Have you ever run out of idea what should you get for them this year again? Not to mention what if that person already have everything. Now what should you do?


So, do you…

  • have a best friend whose getting married next month?
  • confused what to bring on your next christmas dinner this year on your parents?
  • want to surprise your fiancee with a beatiful gfit?
  • look for an anniversary gift for your spouse?

Don’t stress out, let me inspire you with an idea.

I always try to make each and every gift more personalized. One of a kind thing that’s specially made for them. I guess that would be ideal. I particularly love giving portraits as gifts. Some people told me that’s cheating just because I can draw. Well, that’s not true, there’s millions of artists out there who do a custom portrait. I believe you can find somebody who fit your art style (or your budget) among them.

How cool would it be to have a piece of art made to capture something (or someone) you love so much? And think about the possibilities, it doesn’t even have to be a person portrait. It could be a house portrait or maybe a pet?

And here’s some tips on ordering a custom portrait art.

  1. Who is the portrait for and why? What’s the occassion? Is it a birthday gift? Anniversary gift? or a farewell gift? Ask the artist to put extra detail on the art to make a memory from it.
  2. If possible, ask for a separate custom portrait when ordering a couple portrait. That would be useful if they decided later to make custom pillowcase or mug from it. And a copy of digital file in hand will be handy in the future.
  3. What would they love the most? It could be their pet, if so, you know which portrait should you order.
  4. Good photo makes good reference and that means better art. If it’s too difficult to get a picture for reference even though you already stalk them weeks on instagram, you’d probably want to consider ask them openly. If you’re afraid this could blow your surprise plan, how about a gift voucher instead?
  5. It doesn’t always comes on a frame. Think about wedding invitation, greeting card, personalized card, totebag (because why not?) or if you want to go all out, order a custom family tree.

And that’s it! In many ways you and the artist will work together to create the perfect portrait for your loved one. Personalized art will always be treasured for years to come.



If you have decided to go with custom portrait, we’d love to help. To make it easier for you to make the decision, we’re offering a 25% discount using shop code “YAYFOR25” on our ETSY SHOP to all custom portrait order. It’s only valid in a limited time, so grab your spot now.

Just wondering, what would you want to drawn? Tell us what come to mind for you as you read this post in the comments below.

Easy Decoration and Gift Idea for Eid

Leave a comment
Freebies / Simply Hamper

Ramadan is nearly here! Just like every other holiday seasons, we love to decorate the house and of course, the most anticipated event, gift giving!


That’s why, first of all: Gift. Well, this is going to be like a commercial blog ad. But, I promise, if you go through ’till the end, I have something good for you! (like a late easter egg)

Cookie, cookie, cookie, period. Nothing beats cookie on holiday seasons (or any other time actually). That could be a good excuse to chomp down a whole can, right? Because no calories count on holidays.


Still haven’t decide your cookie for share this year? I believe our hamper division, Simply Hampers still have some boxes of the Eid Special left, but unfortunately it’s for Indonesian customer only.
