We all love a bit of hamper action at Christmas and of course Fortnum & Masons are the one's we all really desire. Personally I don't think their children's hamper for £40 can be beat for kids; however, this year there is a new kid on the block, The Tercenturian Hamper. Introduced for one year only, to celebrate the company's birthday, it costs a whopping £20,000 and is available online or in store. If you live within London's M25 you also get it delivered by a traditional horse drawn cart. As most of these are expected to be bought as presents I guess this is an added wow factor to the recipient - as if you need one having bought them a £20,000 Christmas present. Is it value for money?
