‘Tis the season to be jolly’. A truly heart-warming time of the year, when everyone tends to lean towards a more relaxed, happy and generous state of mind.
A Christmas hamper (or cheese basket) is truly a wonderful gift for friends, nearest and dearest, or even just to treat yourself and the Belfry Deli, Coleraine can create a bespoke hamper packed with delicious goods all put together with the utmost care and flair.
The Belfry Deli’s Donna Toner explained: “We can put together anything people want.
“Prices start at £50 including the basket and if you want wine or other spirits included in your hamper, customers are free to bring it into the store and we will add it in.”
Cheese baskets are also available from the Belfry Deli but must be kept chilled and the friendly and helpful staff recommend you get your order in early to avoid disappointment.
“The later you leave it the less choice there is,” added Donna. “A hamper is a great idea and not just at Christmas time – it’s the perfect solution to all your gifting troubles!”
The Belfry Deli also does a brilliant range of platters which are extremely popular.
“We are finding a lot of people aren’t going out as much now, instead they are having parties at home,” said Donna. “They will buy their wines then come to us for their cheese, chutneys and crackers.
“We also have ladies doing posh Afternoon Tea at home. They will buy their fancy cake stands etc and then come to us for our platters and tray bakes – it’s a great idea.”
The Belfry Deli, which will celebrate its 32nd birthday in November, has an unsurpassed reputation for quality produce and first class service and is one of Coleraine’s hidden gems just steps from the Diamond in Coleraine.
So what are you waiting for, call in to the Belfry Deli, give a gift that shows you have put thought into it – give a Belfry Deli hamper!
