Christmas Gift Guide: Food & Drink

I promise, this is one of my last few gift guides and then we're back to normal content, which I am super excited about. But first, let's talk about all those yummy treats! 

 Did you know that Crabtree & Evelyn do confectionery? I did not have a clue. But yes, they do indeed have a big selection of the most delicious treats and the buttery gingerbread and cookies are to die for. I had a chance to try the Christmas Pudding Biscuits*(£5.00) and the Dark Chocolate & Hazelnut*(£5.00) ones and they are so buttery and moreish! I just couldn't stop eating them! And the tins they come in are stunning!

The festive All Butter Gingerbread Men Biscuit Tin*(£10.00) includes 12 gingerbread men and it would make such a lovely gift. Still in stock and if you order by the 20th, it will definitely arrive before Christmas.

 Next, we have some pretty amazing pralines from Planete Chocolat. The Christmas Box Of Chocolates*(44,90 €) comes in a luxurious velvet pouch and a beautiful presentation box and there are 24 pralines inside, which add up to 250g. Created by Belgian master chocolatiers, these taste insanely good and I can honestly say that they are the nicest pralines I have ever tried. Pricy, but sooo, sooo yummy! 

 You can order these from They offer free 24h courier delivery to UK, so you can safely order a box without worrying that it will be late. They also sell fancy Macarons and more.

The last suggestion is from 31Dover and it's a Pick & Mix Miniature Gift Box* and a delicious Plum & Vanilla Liqueur by Edinburgh Gin. The gift box is a very simple idea, as you add your choice of 3 minis on the product page to the box and it calculates the total for you. I opted for a selection of whiskeys as it will be a gift for a relative. The Plum & Vanilla Liqueur by Edinburgh Gin* was something I wanted to try myself, as it sounded right up my street and I was right- it tastes incredible! I have a tiny bottle, but you can get a bigger size as well.

Now I might pour myself some of that liqueur, as the gift guides are really taking it out of me. I forgot how intense daily blogging can be. I fell asleep on the sofa far too many times.... Only 7 sleeps left though! Yay!!!
