Christmas time is all about being together as a family for us. Thomas works shifts, and this year he is going to be working for 12 hours on Christmas Day. 

This means that we want to make the run up to Christmas, as well as the big day itself as lovely as we possibly can. For us, being together and enjoying lovely food and drink, is really a big part of the festive season.

We love having nice snacks on hand, and a foodie Christmas gift, is always a winner with the older members of our family, who appreciate cooking nice food at home.
