Viva Irish: Opoko

Opoko is an Irish online store that offers luxurious gifts at affordable prices (As the strapline very succinctly puts it!).

While there is a lot on offer here, from homewares to baby bits 'n' bobs, one of the more unique and intriguing aspects of the Opoko store is the create your own hamper facility.

There are 8 different hampers to choose from, ranging in price from a very reasonable €5.50 to a staggering splurge of €679. Almost every occasion is thought of with the Bump to Baby Hamper and the Housewarming Hamper being among my favourites!

The idea behind these hampers is to create a luxurious and unique gift that is perfectly tailored to the recipient and is packaged and presented with the greatest attention to detail. First of all, you choose which hamper you want and, then, you choose from a selection of products that you want included. All of the products on offer have a really unique, kitsch feel to them and are not your run-of-the-mill, store-bought items.

Opoko sent us a Harmony Hamper to show you all. This particular hamper comes in at between €5.51 and €314.81, depending on the products you choose and the ethos behind it is to assemble a bumper box of organic and eco-friendly treats.

As you can see below, you get a wide variety of products and there are tonnes more to choose from on the site. Our Harmony Hamper contained a gorgeous black photo frame, a yummy spices and mulled wine-scented candle, a cherry printed Envirosax reusable bag that will be handy for throwing in your handbag, Carlsbad bubble bath and body butter, a bar of chocolate and quirky stencils for making shapes atop your cup of coffee with chocolate/cinnamon powder! Phew!

As you can see, there is a lot of variety here. Opoko chose to send us a random selection of products so we could experience the service fully but, you could definitely tailor this hamper more specifically, and most of the others, with a theme in mind i.e. pampering products or foodie stuff!

Opoko hampers would make an ideal Christmas present and, frankly, make shopping for them much easier! Also, the presentation boxes are so striking that they eliminate any need for wrapping. Score!

  1. Ooooh this company look lovely. I love the "build your own" hamper idea. I wish I had found this before I finished my Christmas shopping! Bookmarked for next year!
