The origin of the Christmas Holiday
The holiday now known as Christmas began with the birth of Jesus Christ. It grew from a winter solstice celebration among pagan cultures to an all-encompassing Christian holiday, and eventually influenced America’s modern traditions like decorated trees and gift exchanges.
Christmas has its roots in prehistory civilisations that celebrated nature's cycles by marking the changing seasons with festivals, feasts, parties, rituals and gatherings. Many ancient religions had solar deities who died during the dark part of every year but were reborn or resurrected at springtime when days became longer than nights again. The Roman festival Saturnalia was held on December 17th honouring their god Saturn; this tradition continued after Rome was conquered by Christians around 400 because they noticed it coincided closely with the celebration of Christ’s birth. The early Christian church was against these pagan festivals, but they didn't want to cancel them because many people would not convert if their celebrations were taken away from them; so instead priests told their followers to celebrate Christmas on December 25th in honour of Jesus' birth and keep celebrating Saturnalia with its feasting and gift-giving around that time too.
Christmas is now celebrated across most cultures worldwide whether religious or secular, although it has evolved into a much bigger multi-day event than just one day during wintertime.
The History of Gift Hampers
Gift hampers have been around for centuries and can be traced back to the days of Ancient Rome. The Romans would give gifts in baskets as a way to thank those who helped them during their time of need. This trend continued throughout history, with gift hampers being given as part of Christmas celebrations as early as the 1500s. Today, gift hampers are still given out on special occasions such as Christmas, birthdays or anniversaries. They are also used by businesses to show appreciation for their clients' loyalty!

Giving clients Christmas Hampers for gifts
In the lead up to Christmas every year, many companies are looking to give their customers a little something extra to say thanks for their ongoing support. One of the best ways to do this is through a Christmas hamper. A good choice for a business would be one that has something for everyone and can work as an incentive for continuing loyalty from clients over time!
Regardless of the industry you work in, it's always nice to show your clients a little appreciation around Christmas time. A Christmas hamper is an excellent way to do this because they are not only useful but also help keep your brand top of mind.
Our Bockers & Pony Christmas hampers can be purchased easily online and delivered straight to their doorsteps. To maximise the wow factor of your Christmas hamper, don't forget that you can customise your branding on the packaging for a beautiful and professional presentation to your clients.
Giving your employees Christmas Hampers for gifts
Giving holiday gifts to employees can be a great way of thanking them for their hard work over the past twelve months. It is important, however, that you choose a high quality Christmas hamper so that they feel valued and remain motivated throughout the year.
The best gifts are ones that have a lot of meaning, and the idea behind giving employees a reward is to show them how much you value what they do for your company. A fail-safe option is by buying an appropriate Christmas hamper which has been curated with high quality products. For example, if someone loves gourmet food then choosing an exquisite wine with lots of gourmet chocolate would be perfect. You could even buy Christmas hampers with a variety of different products at once so that everyone can enjoy or try something different.
