So the in-laws were sorted - a F&M Christmas hamper for all of them to share over the Christmas season.

BRILLIANT! [smug]

BUT.... the computer kept freezing when I was ordering it so gave F&M a call and... EEEEEEEEEEEEK....

They have sold out and are no longer doing international delivery!!!!

So I need a different but equally as nice hamper to get instead... but which one and where from?

I have left this too too late and am panicking!!!! Any ideas???

TIA!

Selfridges seem to still be doing international delivery - will that be ok???

My MIL is passionate about London so a London store is good, but (I don't like big shop shopping so have no idea) is Selfridges ok for food???

Hmmmmmm... my dh says go for it - but I feel nervous...

Harrods?

teafortwo Thu 16-Dec-10 17:34:56

well the problem is the international ones hardly have anything in them...

teafortwo Thu 16-Dec-10 17:35:27

from Harrods - I thought of that too

the f&m one was sooo nice - just like on the railway children (sobs)

Depending where they live, could you choose a local company to them and have it delivered?

Selfridges is fine.

scurry - thanks so much for your thoughts! They are English and live in France. Everything British is sooo luffly and special to them I would rather do something English if poss...

These do International Delivery - between 5 and 10 days, depending where.

OMG, I have just been browsing the F&M hampers - there is one there for £5,000 shock with caviar, truffles, champagne, foie gras...

<goes back to making Tesco shopping list: Branston Pickle, Silverskin onions...>

Ha ha ha - I didn't look at that one sleepinglions - is it the one The Queen 'as???

.. but thought the £200 one actually is probably less than what we spend on individual prezzies for them normally (twenty squid here and there and there and there and... quickly becomes lots) - and they are real foodies and 'a gang' so would like having one big present to enjoy munching through together!

[still wounded about the sold out F&M one]
