Now I have started with girly nights in again with a lovely group of ladies I think I need a few treats to get our evenings off to a flying start. Last time I brought round a Baileys Gateaux, which was quite tasty but a little too alcoholic tasting for my light weight tendencies. We also wolfed down plenty of Chinese food and gossiped away for a good few hours whilst I sipped on my heavily diluted wine (I literally drown it with lemonade!). It was a much-needed tonic and break away from everyday life!
Hampers do not just have to be for Christmas, although they do make fabulous gifts. I think the mother in law will be getting one again this year. My mum would have too but she has decided to make a craft gift list, more the pity if I give chocolate presents I can always help eat them when we visit over Christmas!
I think us girls would make light work of a chocolate hamper for our next meet up; it might stop us gassing for a bit as we would be keen to get through the delicious contents. With such a mixture of treats I am sure we would have more friends joining us, there is nothing quite like good company and decent delicacies. Plus this particular hamper looks quite sophisticated so might help set the scene, seeing as the lot of us in pyjamas is not as glamorous!!!
Actually hubbie might get a present of one of these too, so I can dive in and help him, especially as my mum has other ideas this year. The boys are of the age now they know if I raid their sweet supplies so I cannot get away with that any more. So if I spoil hubbie with one, least I can count on him to share the odd titbit, if I give him my best puppy eyes I might that is!
