This year I have put together a Christmas gift guide, they could be presents for a family member, a friend or even a treat for yourself!

I have put them into categories the best I can and I have put very short reviews on each product. If you want to know more about any of the products tweet me @sarahtrademark and we can have a chat 🙂


Food & Drink

Hipster Fudge

Hipster Fudge

£2.49

This fudge tastes amazing. I have always been a fan of fudge but never tried anything like this. You can really taste the mint aero in it and eaten straight from the fridge it is amazing!

Blossoming Gifts - Percy hamper

Blossoming Gifts - Percy hamper

Blossoming Gifts – Percy hamper

£31.99

This bag contains a great selection of chocolate and sweets, a great gift for anyone with a sweet tooth! They are all high quality and tasty. I really like the pear drops and the chocolate limes.

iloveginbox

£14

There are so many subscription boxes you can get online, either monthly or as one off gifts. This one  a great idea for anyone that loves gin! Inside the box comes two bottles of gin along with two tonic waters. There is a card that tells you a bit about the different bottles and if you like them you can buy them on their website as full size.

I think it is great value for money, it would be great to buy someone as a gift.

Angels & Cookies

Angels & Cookies

Cookie dough

£7.99 a tub

This comes in three different varieties: Chocolate fudge, Ginger & spice and Chocolate chip.

The great thing about this cookie dough is that it is ready to bake and it is free from gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs, nuts and soya. These are the most popular food allergies. 

I recently discovered that I am slightly intolerant to gluten and dairy which is proving difficult with my love for chocolate so something like this is ideal. 

I love the fact the dough is ready made so there is no faffing with all the free from ingredients!

The duppy daiquri

£29

The kit contains:

2 x 100ml Duppy Share Rum

30ml x Caramel Syrup

30ml x Sugar Syrup

10ml x Cartron Marasquin

Recipe & History card

Taste cocktails are a great idea. In each kit they contain all the alcohol you need and the recipes. I have tried these before and I just think they make a great gift.

Personalised cakes

Personalised cakes

£12.99 for 6 cakes

If you are stuck to buy something for someone but you know they like cake they why not get them cakes with their face on? Or a loved one or pet? Just look how cute my pets look on these cakes, almost too good to eat.

The cakes taste great and I think it is such a good idea that you can put pictures or text on them! I cant decide if I like the classic sponge or chocolate more?!

Walkers Christmas Shortbread

Walkers Christmas Shortbread

£8.90

I love shortbread, its one of those things that always reminds me of Christmas. This tin is so cute as it is in the shape of a tree and the shortbread itself is also in tree shapes. I could probably get through the whole tin without sharing!

I am a big fan of Walkers shortbread range as it just tastes so good and moreish. A tin like this would make a great gift 🙂

The Treat Kitchen Baking Jars

The Treat Kitchen Baking Jars

£14.95

This is such a good idea. The jar contains all of the ingredients you need (apart from butter/egg/water that you may need). This particular one is to make white choc and strawberry brownies but they also do a double chocolate brownie one, yum! This is the perfect gift for anyone that loves baking or is new to baking as it is so convenient.

I love these cocktail mixers, I previously reviewed some here and I thought they were fab. 

The two I have just tried are elderflower colins and raspberry mojito.

funkin cocktails

They are so simple to use as I have mentioned before. You simple add ice and your chosen mixer (alcoholic or non alcoholic) and off you go!

funkin cocktails

I mixed the elderflower colins with lemonade for a refreshing Sunday afternoon drink whilst relaxing in the sun. 

Unfortunately I never got a picture of the mojito one but I think that has now become my favourite when mixed with soda water 🙂

If you haven’t tried these I would recommend you do as it is honestly so easy to make a great tasting drink using these!

I AM SO IN LOVE

Funkin cocktails

Funkin cocktails are such a fun thing to play with. We never make cocktails at home as it would be such a pain to get ALL of the ingredients but with this you literally just need to add ice and alcohol!

They also taste great with fizzy water or lemonade if you want an alcohol free one 😉

We decided to try the Hollywood first, this had an amazing berry taste and was a big hit with my husband!

Funkin cocktails

It was fun to make (got my cocktail shaker and funky straws out!)

Funkin cocktails

How cool do they look though?!

Funkin cocktails

The plan was to try a few and show you how I got on, but the next one I tried I was so excited about I forgot to take pictures! (What an idiot!)

We tried the Mojito one and it was so yummy! I could drink this one all the time (non alcoholic) as it tasted so good!

The great thing about these is you can mix anything you want with them, vodka, gin, fizzy water, fruit juice etc. You can make them as weak or strong as you need to.

Looking forward to trying the rest over the next couple of weeks (yum!)

Food and drink



Chocbots

£8.95
Chocolate is always a big hit in my family at Christmas, well, any time of the year to be honest! This awesome box contains 8 chocolates in a variety of flavours, shaped like robots. They are so yummy, I LOVE the orange one best and they are great for all ages. I had never seen anything like these before and they are so cool!

****************************************

Taste cocktails – Espresso martini
£29
This awesome box contains everything you need to make cocktails at home, it is a great idea for something to do with friends or family. It includes a recipe card so you can make your own drink, even though I am sure you can tweak it slightly! I prefer cocktails not too strong but someone else may want it a bit stronger 🙂 They have lots of different ones and the mojito one looks so good!

Microbarbox – Christmas edition

£29

The Microbarbox is exactly what you expect, a bar in a box! You can buy one off boxes from them or a monthly subscription. This one is the Christmas box. It contains : 50ml Disaronno Amaretto, 187ml La Perle Merlot Red Wine, 50ml Coole Swan Irish Cream Liqueur, 200ml Le Contesse prosecco, 50ml Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur, 45g Cambrook Caramelised Sesame Peanuts, 15g Barü marshmallow. This is a great idea for anyone that likes alcohol and snacks 🙂 I don’t drink a lot so this is ideal as it contains small bottles and it was great to share with my other half as it has a variety of drinks (I like spirits and he will drink the wine). I love the cute snacks too!

I hope you enjoyed reading this and I hope it has helped to inspire you for gift ideas!
