What's in the box?

Our Christmas Table Box has been a step in a new direction for us, there’s no envelopes, no dates… But lots of smiles, family fun and memories to be made.

To make sure 2020 is memorable for all the right reasons we selected some of our favourite small business pals to provide the treats that feature inside each bag. While we were getting in the festive spirit we spoke to Megan, Holly and Jessica to find out their plans for Christmas and some of their favourite things…

Cinnamon & Orange Candle

Sandwick Bay Candles

Definitely the cinnamon and orange Christmas candle.

The original and best alcoholic lollies and sweets out there. In each adult bag you’ll find 2 drinks stirrers in one of 4 tasty flavours – Mulled Wine, Sloe Gin, Amaretto or Irish Cream – to enjoy in your festive tipples. 

We had a quick chat with Holly about her favourite Christmas things and I’m sure her sister had nothing to do with the answers… 

What is your favourite festive product in your range? 
Sloe Gin Stirrers – they go great in a glass of warm mulled wine or a glass of cold fizz (definitely our favourite – we had to taste test!)

Roast Potatoes – my sister’s are THE best!

Grow Your Own Christmas Dinner!

Something Pretty Plants
Whether it’s red cabbage to go on your turkey dinner or some beautiful spring blooms these guys have something to suit in a personalised box. You’ll find Something Pretty seed packs in our Christmas Table Box. Inside each kids bag you’ll find a pack of seeds to plant in spring, creating memories of Christmas for many months to come. 

We asked Jess some very important questions to find out what makes her tick, and as you’ll see, she’s a big fan of Christmas! 

What is your favourite festive product in your range?
Either our Garden Seed Advent Calendar, or the Grow Your Own Christmas Dinner Gift Set – can’t beat a bit of red cabbage with Christmas dinner.

What is your favourite part of Christmas dinner?
It has to be pigs in blankets, or My Mum’s famous Chestnut stuffing – delicious!

Best Christmas movie?
Definitely Santa Claus The Movie, closely followed by Home Alone 2 and Love Actually, also quite partial to a bit of Arthur Christmas 

What are you asking Father Christmas for this year?
I’m not really sure, if he can arrange the possibility to spend time together with our families that would be the best gift of all!

Will you be up early on Christmas morning or having a lie in?
Much to the disgruntlement of my partner – I’ll be up around 6am! 🙂

Where will you be for Christmas this year?
Hopefully, lockdown permitting, surrounded by our lovely extended family with lots of happiness and laughter!
