Halloween is over, Bonfire night is around the corner and then the focus is on the man in red visiting! I love the preparation of Christmas, of choosing presents and keeping family traditions. Every year I seem to get more excited. I thought Christmas was most magical when the children were small but I actually love it now as they get involved in the preparations and planning too. It really is a fab family time. This month I have teamed up with Gate-away.com to give away a luxury Italian cooking hamper from Carluccio’s. If you are not lucky enough to be going away to Italy for Christmas you can feast on some Italian goodies instead.
This beautiful hamper comes hand packed in a red gift box, tied with white ribbon, a celebration for the cook and their Italian kitchen. This box not only contains our top-quality Italian larder items but also a selection of treats for the cook themselves. Be inspired by Antonio’s Simple Cooking book, full of easy, reliable and delicious recipes, perfect for the novice and enthusiastic cook alike. Also included is a sturdy, thick cotton canvas bag – perfect for food shopping.”
I think recieving a hamper is such a treat as it usually contains items that I wouldn’t buy and so it is well received. Hampers are also the perfect gift to give and for the past ten years or so I give my grandparents hampers as they have everything else! It is not just foodies that like a good hamper!
