Daffodils are unfurling in the hedgerows. Lambs are frolicking in the cut-grass breeze. If we weren’t stuck indoors, we’d likely have a bird singing the dawn chorus on our shoulder too.
As spring springs, we’re getting the better of the lockdown blues by giving you the chance to win a hamper guaranteed to make any mood a brighter shade of Fortnum & Mason cyan.
Fortnum & Mason has been the UK’s connoisseur of food since it opened on London’s Piccadilly in 1707. Perusing its flagship store’s bountiful food hall and gem-like confectionery counters is a deliciously extravagant pastime, but delving into a Fortnum & Mason hamper is just as glorious – nay, better, given that we don’t need to get out of our pyjamas to do so.
Putting the “social” in social distancing, The Great Indoors Hamper – worth £450 – is filled with every provision needed to keep spirits high, stomachs full and pantry cupboards stocked without stepping out the door.
Breakfast like a king or queen (you are stuck in your castle, after all) with toast topped with Sir Nigel’s Vintage Marmalade or acacia honeycomb alongside a cup of the store’s signature Breakfast Blend Tea – pinkies up, remember.
Come lunchtime, roll out a blanket on the floor of your living room and crack open a window because it’s time for a proper British picnic. Pop the cork on a bottle of Fortnum’s Sparkling Tea – a delightful non-alcoholic blend of eight rare teas – or opt for something stronger with Blanc de Blancs Champagne. Drinks are best paired with nibbles, of course. You’ll tuck into hand-filleted smoked salmon, caviar and a selection of cheeses, biscuits and chutney. Sweet tooth? The Fortnum’s truffle selection contains a soirée of cocktail-inspired choccies.
All this (and more, besides) will be shipped straight to your doorstep in an iconic Fortnum & Mason wicker basket – a charming keepsake that will last long after your treats have been devoured.
In a time when stockpiling is all too common and a supermarket delivery slot is harder to get than a Glastonbury ticket, this is your chance to simply lift a lid and enjoy.
