Just in time for Christmas, mail subscription service Not-Another-Bill has launched The Curated Hamper, a new line of selected marvels to resolve all our last minute shopping ordeals. 

Tailored to six unique themes, each gift is presented in a smart plywood crate complete with a mini brass crowbar to prise it open with.

Inside the Japanese Whiskey Hamper you’ll find a bottle of the award-winning Yazamaki single malt along with a set of four horn engraved tots; the perfect pairing.

If whisky doesn’t quite do it for you, the ‘kitchen’ and ‘splatterware’ hampers might be the more appropriate; foodies and discerning homemakers alike will adore them both. The ‘marble and brass kitchen hamper’ features a marble chopping board cut from a solid block of arabescato, a brass measuring jug, a set of brass measuring spoons, a marble pot and spoon for salt or spice, and a brass and marble kitchen roll. The 'splatterware hamper’ meanwhile contains a twenty piece set of enamel blue and white splattered tableware - including plates, mugs, bowls and spoons.

Never ones to shy away from the unexpected (afterall, Not-Another-Bill is all about that very element of surpise and discovery) there are a few 'out of the ordinary' options available, too. Among them the 'taxidermy hamper’, ‘woodmaker’s hamper’ or ‘Greek Spartan foot hamper’.

Who knew the mailbox could be so magical?
