When it comes to gifting for Father's Day (which lands on Sunday 16 June this year), a bottle of red always goes down well. But if you want to take things one step further, it's worth looking into Marks & Spencer's epic range of food and drink hampers, which, this year, is proving hugely popular.

Quick overview

One gift set in particular that's currently trending is M&S's Red Wine & Cheese Gift Box — a £40 bundle filled with a cracking bottle of red wine, two types of delectable cheeses and a complementary chutney. A sure-fire win as far as foodie hampers go.

Inside is a two-year-old Cornish Cruncher cheddar and a Cropwell Bishop Blue Stilton to pair with pear quince, which you can wash down with a full-bodied bottle of Susanna Balbo Malbec.

The perfect choice for Father's Day, it's versatile enough to work for a range of different occasions, including birthdays or anniversaries, and is ideal if you know anyone who's obsessed with all things cheese and wine.

The Malbec is a 2022 wine made in Uco Valley, Argentina that M&S describes as a "vibrant and expressive wine with notes of dark berries and spice".

Creamy, crumbly and perfect for spreading across a cracker (or five), the Stilton and Cheddar are crowd pleasers, strong enough to a pack a flavourful punch but not overwhelming for fussy eaters.

Arriving neatly wrapped in a brown presentation box, you can even add a gift message for an extra special personal touch.

To top it all off, you even get free nominated day delivery, so no unexpected costs hit you at checkout (which we all know can be frustrating).

Rated positively across the board by shoppers, it's safe to say this versatile gift set's gone down a treat with whoever's on the receiving end.

The only criticism highlighted by a handful of shoppers seems to be the want for more crackers. One customer says, "A nice gift for cheese and wine lovers. Could be improved with some crackers and perhaps one more cheese selection."

  • "This was an excellent gift for my father on his birthday. A self confessed cheese and wine-aholic, this gift hit the spot. Value for money without compromising on quality. M&S really do these little online gifts so well. Makes life easier for people like my who live overseas."

  • "A great gift for wine and cheese lovers. Good quality and a special treat."

  • "The perfect gift - everyone was so thrilled. Brilliant."

  • "Excellent contents. My two sons were delighted with the hampers as part of their birthday presents. Both in their late 40s."

  • "I bought this as gift for wine and cheese lover who raved about the quality and great choice of cheese which complimented the wine."
