English Rose Christmas Countdown: 16th Dec

I have been putting together lovely food hampers for gifts this year, and here is one I’ve just completed for my boyfriend’s mum. It includes a variety of items from both Booths Supermarket and Fortnum and Mason, such as lemon curd biscuits, pomberry dressing, cranberry sauce, traditional pasta, white wine vinegar with herbs from Provence, truffle oil and Christmas treats including stollen and panettone.

Hampers are available from many of the supermarket/department stores now such as John Lewis, Booths and Marks and Spencer, but I actually prefer enjoy putting my own together (time permitting). I usually put in a few sticks of cinnamon for a delicious festive smell, and I’ve decorated this one with a sparkly gold mask for a nice decorative touch.

  1. I prefer making my own hampers too. It’s so much better being able to personalise your gifts.

    It looks lovely. Lets just hope your boyfriend’s mum doesn’t read this before she opens her gift!
