We are super-excited to reveal our exclusive range of specially prepared festive hampers, jam-packed with festive treats and foodie delights. Our five hand-prepared festive hampers come in a range of sizes and prices from a €40 ‘Surprise Hamper’ to a €135 ‘Indulgence Hamper’, including vegan treats like palm oil-free mince pies or more indulgent baked goodies like our Christmas Pudding (also suitable for vegans and palm oil-free).

‘Food for sharing’ and our own Happy Pear products, handmade by our passionate craft bakers using the best-quality, pure and natural ingredients, are at the heart of our range of festive hampers this year.

Dave and Steve said; “Year after year people tell us they really enjoy giving and receiving our festive hampers and this year they’ve been created with sharing in mind. Every morning after our swim in the sea we share treats and tea with friends and visitors alike, huddled on the beach, and it’s a magical experience. So, we wanted our hampers to be gifts that could be shared with family, friends and colleagues because for us it’s the simplest things, like sharing a meal or a Christmas swim, that captures the real spirit of Christmas.”

We are now taking orders for Christmas hampers at www.thehappypear.ie. Monday, 17th December 2018 is the last date for hamper orders and all orders will be dispatched between 14th – 17th December (or within 3-4 working days). Additionally, throughout December our range of Happy Pear Christmas hampers will be available to buy in our cafes at Church Road, Greystones and Clondalkin, Dublin 22.
