Christmas Hamper Giveaway for Homesick Expats: NOW CLOSED

One of the hardest times of the year for expats can be the holidays. Far away from your original home, it's sometimes the hardest as you would usually be catching up with your family and friends, imbibing a little too much, eating way too much and arging over watching the Queens Speech or the Snowman. Again.
Whilst sadly I can't offer to fly you or your family home, (oh how I wish I could) I'd love to create a little corner of home in your kitchen. Seven Seas Worldwide have kindly sponsored a personalised, handpicked Christmas hamper for one of my UK readers. You don't have to be an expat to enter though, you just need a corner of your kitchen that wants a little international flava.

We've had to narrow the choices down a little, and you'll be able to choose from a single;
  • Kiwi Hamper or;
  • Australian Hamper or;
  • American Hamper or;
  • Canadian Hamper or;
  • South African or;
  • Polish Hamper 
As I'm biased, I personally would vouch for the Kiwi Hamper (Onion Soup, Mint Slices, Toffee Pops and Burger Rings, just sayin') but equally as much love and festive cheer will go into any other parcel. Your chosen hamper will be delivered to an UK address of your choice. It will take food allergies into consideration (as much as possible) and contain £40.00 worth of hand picked goodies, unique to you.

In the interests of clarity I haven't personally used Seven Seas Worldwide, but they have a range of products, and their MoveCubes look pretty awesome. Everything can be done online (bar the physical packing of the boxes obviously) and they'll give you a free instant quote.
(Editors note: A good friend of mine HAS used Seven Seas Worldwide to ship an extreme excess of clothing from the UK to New Zealand and had a great experience with them.)

One of my recent parcel winners (worth £25) was a health-food fiend, so her parcel centred around healthy treats I thought she'd like (which it sounds like she loved which is fantastic!).
