What we do

We’re on a mission. We aim to make the world a better place one box at a time, we are in the delivering smiles business!

Secret Hamper was launched in June 2016, after Founder, Nigel Richardson watched a TV ad that inspired him to perform a random act of kindness.


The ad saw a young man leaving a bag of groceries on an elderly neighbour’s doorstep and Nigel was so touched by the idea, that he did the same for one of his own, elderly neighbours and at 22:12 on the 23rd December 2015 the idea for Secret Hamper was born.

To this day, the grateful recipient has no idea who left the bags of groceries on his doorstep.


Nigel’s idea for Secret Hamper came about as a way of giving everyone the opportunity to “Be a Mega Hero” and spread a little kindness – anonymously or not.

Whether it’s a box of every day essentials or our luxury locally sourced hampers and gift boxes, everyone gets to feel good, the sender and the recipient.



Don’t you just love that warm fuzzy feeling you get inside when you know that you’ve done a good deed or a random act of kindness?

Sometimes people find themselves in a challenging situation for whatever reason. Circumstances can change overnight, simply someone could do with a helping hand or maybe they just deserve a little recognition….

  • This could be new parents
  • First time buyers
  • Offspring at University
  • An elderly neighbour or relative in a care home
  • Or you may just want to say thank you to a valued member of staff or client, the list is endless.

At Secret Hamper we have various different hampers that are full of day to day essential items that could be making a difference to someone’s life within a day or two, to our fully bespoke locally sourced Essex Hamper and bespoke ranges, showcasing and supporting an array of fabulous local produce.

We aim to create a feel good factor all-round, for the person that’s kindly sent the hamper and for the recipient – knowing that someone somewhere is thinking of them.

All our hampers come in plain recyclable cardboard boxes as standard with the option of a range of keepsake gift boxes or a wide selection of wicker baskets.

Please contact us at info@secrethamper.com for these options and pricing.
