Have you found that the simple joy of sharing food and drinks with friends and family has become a hundred times more meaningful in recent times? Treating friends to delicious food and drinks is certainly one of life's great pleasures, and there's nothing better than receiving a hamper bursting with treats that have been picked especially for you.

If you're planning to send someone a really special gift, why not create a hand-picked Picnic Party Hamper filled with your choice of salty snacks, sweet treats, drinks and picnic accessories? You can also make a positive impact to the planet by choosing to send food and drink that has been sustainability produced by small (mainly British) businesses, selected for ethical credentials as much as gourmet reputations... and thoroughly taste-tested at BoxTree HQ.

If you're keen, here are five tips for creating your very own Picnic Party Hamper...

We all do our bit to care for our planet, and selecting ethical, environmentally friendly (yet still luxurious) gifts for our loved ones is an easy win. It’s what we’re all about at BoxTree: We choose our makers based on their eco-credentials and work extremely hard to deliver our sustainably produced and recyclable boxes in a planet-friendly way.

To celebrate World Earth Day, I’m shining a light on just a few of our eco-friendly makers whose ethics and ideas can help you to care for our beautiful planet by gifting green.

We all try to check in on one another as much as we can, but sometimes, you'll want to go a step further and really show someone you're thinking of them. It is touching how many of our customers send ready-made 'de-stress' gift boxes or handpick their own calming gifts to build a 'time out' box for loved ones. Here are some ideas to help you choose or create your your own.
With more freedom to meet with friends and family outdoors, what should you include in your special springtime gift boxes that can be enjoyed in the great outdoors? Our gifting expert, Claire, has some fab ideas.

Easter Gifts are especially joyous to give and receive as they mark the beginning of spring and the end of the winter months. This year in particular it seems fitting to mark the change in the seasons as they represent a gradual goodbye to sad and difficult times and a celebration of happy times to come.

Our gifting expert, Claire, is keen to share her thoughts on Easter gifts that are both traditional and original.

It's fair to say that mums have been through a lot this year and, for some, this year's Mother's Day could be a quiet one. So if you'd like to bring a smile to her face with something extra-special, a beautiful, planet-friendly gift box packed with thoughtfully chosen ethical gifts could be just the ticket.
Acknowledging generosity, help and support with a big "THANK YOU" leaves both parties feeling a warm little glow. And there's never been a more important time to appreciate each other and both the big and small kindnesses we show each other every day.
A really lovely way to celebrate the freedom and fun of the holidays with the children in your life is by sending them crafts, toys and activities in the post. We all know that a specially addressed box delivered by the postman is bound to raise beaming smiles and it's a great way to kick off the holiday. 
There’s never been a more important time to let the ones we love know how much they mean to us, so we asked Claire from our gift team to share her top 5 ideas for Valentine’s Day – or as we’ve coined it: Love Through the Letterbox.
Sometimes when someone we care about has lost a loved one we just want to reach out and let them know that they're in our thoughts. But it can be hard to choose an appropriate gift to send at such a difficult time. We are often asked for help with this sensitive subject by our customers, so here’s our advice for sending a little something to express your sympathy and honour someone’s passing.
We’re sorry to be sending so many ‘Get Well Soon’ parcels lately, but we’re happy that we can help you to show your friends, family and colleagues that you care.
We are despatching gifts as normal within the UK and our delivery services are still making sure that your parcels arrive on time to their destination.
