This is just wonderful....

I was so excited when Victoria contacted me and asked if I’d like to review a Christmas hamper from Interflora. I had recently stayed at a local hotel with my brother and his wife and they had prepared a picnic lunch for us and both me and Lin were a tad disappointed to find we had to give the picnic baskets back!!

It was just like this one, not too big to use for two people but big enough to hold all those essentials when packing a picnic. Don’t you just love the little leather buckles?

Enough about the basket, although I thought that would be the exciting bit for me. I love the thought of being able to re-use it again and again.

But unusually my enthusiasm continued…

The smell was some how Christmassy...with all the luxury goodies cushioned by green tissue paper!

Now my regular readers know I’m a homemade girlie. I don’t buy packets of anything…so I was a bit sceptical, especially as I was thinking of buying this as a gift! (I know, I know just for the basket – silly huh?) but I need not worry, it was all lovely.

In the run up to Christmas this hamper as been brilliant, it’s made advent taste just a little bit nicer. It was all top of the range luxury items. Having a selection of twinning teas to choose from was a luxury before running round the shops! From mince pies to shortbread biscuits all were of excellent quality with brand names I recognised.

I’m not sure it was a wise decision to mention on here what I was thinking of getting Bryan & Lin for Christmas…this might have spoilt the surprise!!!!

I got one of these too JUlie and I thought it was lovely. I can't wait to go on a picnic next summer with the rather generous sized hamper!!
