Christmas is COMING!!!

We are finally on the countdown to Christmas and the task of finding gifts for your loved ones has begun!

If like me you have been with your partner for a while, it’s bloomin’ hard to keep finding new and ‘original‘ gifts to give each other year after year; Lee is already moaning that he doesn’t know what to get me!

To be honest, I try not to fall into the Black Friday and Christmas season consumerism hell hole… I don’t like to over spoil my kids and my living room on Christmas day doesn’t look like a toy warehouse. What we try to do in our household, is buy one or two special gifts and then gets some fun stocking fillers. For me this year, Christmas is all about comfort… If I was to get anything like PJ’s, slippers, smellies, cushions, candles I would be one happy lass!

Today I have some serious cool and stylish gifts ideas from Amara; so whether you have just begun your Christmas shopping, looking for your final few pieces or planning on leaving it to last minute, I have some fab ideas for him and for her.

Enjoy shopping!

Quick, Easy, Tasty Christmas Gift..

We have another corking DIY recipe from Natasha from Nevie-Pie Cakes, building up to the Christmas Season!

This week its Hot Chocolate Spoons. I can tell you (,as being a lucky sod who was given some by Natasha herself last year…) that these are winners! Delicious, smooth, chocolatey heaven!!!

Here the very lovely Natasha tells us her secret recipe…

Natasha…

I can’t really call this a recipe, it is really just heating and stirring, but it is a quick and easy make for any last minute Christmas gifts you need to give.

Heat 150g of good quality dark chocolate until melted

Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Stir in 75ml of boiling water, keep stirring until smooth

Spoon 3 small teaspoons onto an ice lolly mold (you should make about 8 from this amount)

Add a wooden spoon

Add some sprinkles and chill in the fridge until hard

Run the outside of the mold under hot water and gently release the chocolate, you may need to put the chocolate in the fridge for a few minutes to harden up again.

Package prettily and give as a gift to a very grateful recipient

Or add it to a mug of hot milk and drink yourself!

Enjoy!
