My birthday is a month before Christmas too, double excitement. From mid-November, I am pretty much unbearable with giddi-ness about these two occasions.
As I’ve gotten older, Christmas has become less about the presents (I still want presents though if you’re reading this, Steve), and more about the decorations, the smells, the sights and the feeling of joy and spending time with loved ones.
In the spirit of being a touch more personal than usual, this year Steve and I have decided to give our friends and family Christmas hampers.
So my question to you, bloggy friends, is what should I put in said hampers? What would you like to receive? I don’t think it’s going to work out cheaper than buying individual gifts, but the good thing is we need to pre-plan and spread the cost.
I’ve already been inspired by the idea of making apple and cranberry chutney from Cider with Rosie, and will be looking for a few other recipes for things I can make (jams, cakes, yaddy-yadda). I also thought a Christmas candle of some sort would be a good addition. That is where my inspiration finishes for now. Any help?
