THE COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS HAS BEGUN…

I’m not someone who is mega organised at all but I do like to feel that by the end of November I am well on my way with the Christmas Shopping.

I think the weather this weekend has really made everything feel more like Christmas so I decided to first start checking out  some of my favourite sites to give me some ideas for some ‘original’ Christmas gifts.

It wasn’t long after browsing Amazon that I came across The Great British Bake Off 2015 Book  – with the hardcover selling for only £7.99 I soon purchased a few to pop under the tree as a surprise for some of my family.

Another good one I found on Lakeland’s site and is something really different. Strawberry PopaBalls Bursting Bubbles – basically its a box full of little round strawberry balls which you can add to a glass of fizz, lemonade or water to add a subtle flavour or simply pop one in your mouth for a syrupy strawberry explosion, all for £2.95
