Christmas! I finally get to start to talk about Christmas. A time of year I love. A time full of joy and magic. Children’s faces full of excitement and wonder. Decorations line the streets and houses. Excitement builds and builds.
There is one thing I don’t like about Christmas and that is the difficulty I find each year gift giving to a few people. The kind of people you maybe don’t know too well to buy a personal gift, an elderly relative or a neighbour you know is spending Christmas alone this year.
I feel food is the way to go for these types of gifts. Not just any food but luxury food, food you know wouldn’t buy themselves. I personally would love to receive a Christmas hamper as a gift. So I got extremely excited when I received a Christmas hamper from Prestige.
The hamper arrived in a well-packaged cardboard box and my excitement grew. When I opened the box I was greeted with a lovely presented wicker hamper. I just loved the gift tag attached to it. It made it feel very special and luxurious.
Inside all the items were well packaged with plenty of stuffing so no accidents and breakages could occur.
Upon opening the box it did not take very long for packages to get opened. BG2 and I immediately sat down with the packet of Belgium curls.
it wasn’t the first time I have tried these curls, in fact they are some of my favourite. I was a little reluctant to share with BG2 if i’m honest.
We also had my sister-in-law over Friday evening. Of course i have a real hard time sharing food so i did eat the white chocolate before they got there. I did let the hubby have a taste. We both agreed that the chocolate was very nice, it wasn’t overly sweet like white chocolate can be known for.
The wine was lovely and went down extremely fast that evening. I am not a big wine drinker however i soon found my glass empty.
Yum! The crisps were also a favourite that night, although my sister-in-law and I finished the lot and the men were left with an empty container.
I was very impressed with the quality of products in the hamper. Everything we have tried so far has been lovely.
This would make a lovely gift for a neighbour who is alone this Christmas.
