There are some people who are just impossible to buy for. I am
probably definitely one of them, judging by the number of texts bouncing between my boyfriend and his sister about Christmas gifts for me.
But one thing that you can never go wrong with is food.
When the lovely people over at Lakeland asked me to review one of their gift baskets I couldn’t wait for it to arrive. As the chief girl in my office I am always in charge of organising presents/parties so I have become a dab hand at whipping up gift baskets, but this was the first one I have ever received.
The St Kew Teacup Basket is a beautiful collection of afternoon tea treats collected inside a ‘quirky’ willow teacup and saucer, which now houses a coriander plant in my kitchen.
Each basket holds two packets of biscuits (strawberry and cream shortbread and oatie flips), strawberry and champagne jam and a box of English tea.
Needless to say, there is very little left over from it! Though everything was delicious the real stars of the show were the oatie flips and the jam; so good in fact that they weren’t shared.
The jam was incredibly fruity and luxurious and the oatie flips tasted comforting like fruit crumble topping.
At a little over £15 these baskets are perfect for difficult to buy for relatives who deserve a little pick me up mid-afternoon.
Although I did receive the gift basket without charge, I was not paid for this review and all opinions are my own. I would never review something I wouldn’t buy myself.
