Just to clarify – do you want to know if it’s a legal issue to add other people’s products to your hampers? I.e.: like a product “copyright” sort of thing?

I don’t think this is a problem (is this the sort of thing you mean?), however it might be a little cost-prohibitive.

If you pay retail price, and then sell the product yourself, you will need to mark it up to the point that it might not be worth the customer’s money to buy it.

You would be much better off sourcing local, unique products (i.e.: from markets, small online stores, trade shows, etc) and discussing wholesale pricing with them. Buy a range of them at wholesale, put them together as a hamper and the profit will be much more worth your while.

The products will also be more unique and harder for the customer to find elsewhere :)
