Our Story

We've been making original & scrumptious hampers for over ten years. Our story began at our Cambridge marketing company, Local Buzz Marketing, in 2010.

Each year at Buzz, we would thank our clients by creating & delivering handmade hampers to them on Christmas Eve. Over time, those clients started asking us to make hampers for their teams, customers, family and friends. Word quickly spread and our hampers became increasingly popular.

In 2019, we decided to give a name to our little hamper business. The Cambridge Hamper Company sold in over 25 countries in the first 6 months of trading. In 2023 we worked alongside the NHS Cambridge University Hospitals to create and deliver bespoke Christmas hampers for more than 20,000 people. In the same year our Coronation Hamper was listed as one of the best Coronation gifts on the market by Red magazine. In 2024 we partnered with The Jockey Club and Huntingdon Racecourse to present hampers to the winning owners at every race throughout the season. 

We continue to work with local artisans, producers and manufacturers of quality products to create original gift hampers. We are open to consumers, businesses and retail outlets. We offer a service to assist businesses with their gifting requirements. If you need assistance with larger orders, or want to discuss retail options, it's best to get in touch with us by emailing info@thecambridgehampercompany.co.uk
