One of the best gifts we received over the Christmas period was a fabulous hamper from John Lewis. It arrived in a massive traditional wicker hamper and unpacking it was such good fun. We all dived in and found different things we loved. Obviously Mr English and I went for the wines (some really decent ones, actually – remember we used the fabulous Bordeaux on our cheese and wine tasting evening) – there was also a really good bottle of ruby port and some rather fantastic fizz too.
Over Christmas, having lots of guests means that nibbles are always welcome and the hamper contained loads of nuts, crisps and other nibbly bits. The New York Deli hot chilli nuts were a fave, as were the amazing Fire Cracker rice puff – so moreish! The hamper also had amazing Olives et Al spiced nuts, olives and cheesy biscuits. Perfect with drinks over the festive period.
The boys were delighted to see loads of biscuits and chocolates too, as well as a gorgeous cake AND a Christmas pudding, and we’ve STILL got loads of jams and preserves left, as well as a lovely bottle of balsamic vinegar.
All in all, there was something for everyone and it really was the gift that keeps on giving – well into the New Year in fact!
