you can never go wrong with chocolate gifts for everyone in the family. Hotel
Chocolat is well worth a visit. All
their products are very indulgent, a real treat being so luxurious and
mouth-watering! We were sent two of
their giant slabs (Billionaire’s Shortbread
and Rocky Road) at £16 each. They look
and taste amazing! £16 might sound a
lot for a slab of chocolate but these are huge and the combination of flavours
works so well together. Hotel Chocolat
gifts are bound to delight the recipient, just do not expect them to want to
I really like
Edible Jelly Baby (£15.99) from getting personal, why settle for a pack of
sweets when you can give the gift of a super sized jelly baby! It’s that bit different everything you love
about one of your favourite sweets but on a much bigger scale.
Mini Pizzas again from getting personal look fantastic; they come in cute
little pizza boxes. It costs £16.99 for
a set of three 4″ pizzas so you could buy them and give out three separate mini
presents. They are made from delicious
Belgian chocolate and are topped with chocolate curls, sweets and fudge. These are a moreish present that is a bit
more exclusive than giving a box of chocolates this Christmas.
I am always eager to see purple packaging amongst my Christmas gifts, Cadbury chocolate is my most favourite kind, Dairy Milk is so creamy thanks to “a glass and a half of milk in every half pound bar of chocolate”. Their Christmas range is extensive with lots of fun and exciting chocolate gifts for all the family. The smaller bars make great inexpensive presents for the stocking and if your struggling with idea’s on how to fill the stocking why not add a chocolate Santa! They take up lots of space and have extra thick tasty chocolate if you can get your child to share!!!

We all love cake here but with busy family life we do not have much opportunity to make them from scratch that often. So the Mug Cakes Book (£8.99) is the most perfect present for us, it details 40 different cakes you can make in less than 10 minutes! No need to preheat the oven just bung the mug with its chosen ingredients in the microwave put the kettle on and get ready to enjoy some yummy cake! Heavenly!
not always possible to head off to a Christmas market but it’s not such a
necessity when you can get hold of traditional German delicacies
by Bahlsen from your nearest Waitrose
and Ocado stores.

biscuits and cakes made us feel very festive and all set for Christmas; you
have wonderful Christmas flavours like cinnamon and gingerbread to enjoy and
the biscuits all look very attractive being beautifully glazed.
in the family was very keen to get their hands on them. The boys wanted to open all the packets and
have a nibble on everything, each product looked very appetising so I cannot
blame them for wanting to get stuck in.
I love stollen with marzipan but initially I was not sure how I felt
about the Mohn-Stollen product, as it had a poppy seed filling, it actually
tasted quite nice and surprised my mum, dad and me! I think this range in its entirety would make lovely gifts or are
just nice to have in the cupboard for visiting guests, although you might find
them too tempting to leave unopened for long!!!
