I know it’s not quite December yet, but I am in full festive mode. I’ve got a mini tree up, You’ve Got Mail is on the TV and I’ve consumed about five pints of cinnamon hot chocolate in the last week. CHRISTMAS, guys. Let’s kick it off right now.
I’m not a ‘foodie’ by any means – I can’t really cook, I love a Double Cheeseburger and, without fail, I always order steak and chips at restaurants. For 11 months of the year, I’m not really into fine food. But Christmas is different.
Christmas is chocolate truffles, fancy biscuits and unpasteurised cheese. It’s smoked salmon and brandy ice cream, roast parsnips and posh red wine. Christmas is the month of indulgence, and I go all out.
This beautiful hamper is my perfect Christmas in a basket. Luxury nuts, little pots of preserve, a full Christmas cake… it’s a delight.
Inside the leather-topped basket is everything you need for a true luxury bitch festive season, from the champagne for your morning Buck’s Fizz to the tin of chocolate biscuits you’ll polish off while watching the Sherlock Christmas Special. There’s even a special bauble for your tree, to remind you of ‘that Christmas with all the food’ for years to come.
