Handmade Homemade Christmas Gifts



 
When it comes to giving presents at Christmas or anytime of the year you can’t beat handmade and homemade Christmas gifts. 

Our flapjacks and cookies work great
and look very pretty in a clear glass jar with a ribbon on top. These make great foodie gifts. You can also stack a few flapjacks or biscuits on top of each other wrap them in cellophane and tie with a pretty ribbon. Handmade gift tags are the icing on the cake!

 



Another unique Christmas gift is a custom made luxury Christmas hamper that you have put together yourself. 

The great thing about hampers is that it can be suited to your budget and your recipient. You can make a hamper as small or as large as you like and suit it to your budget. Add whatever baking utensils you like, pretty biscuit/scone cutters, rolling pins, loaf tins, bread boards, wooden spoon or what ever takes your fancy.
 




If you are giving a gift to a diabetic you can use our bread mixes as none contain any added sugar, team this up with other diabetic friendly jams etc. For a ‘healthy’ baking hamper add natural sweeteners, coconut oil etc. Just ask in your local health food shop for suitable products. 







TheTinahely Christmas Spirit Fair was on yesterday and we popped by and picked up all these lovely handmade and unusual Christmas gifts by local crafts people. We picked up amazing pressies, glass by Catherine Wilcoxin, Crochet by IreneLundgard  home d├ęcor by Northern Style by and a fab handmade pottery plate by Rose Sharpe. The problem is always giving away pressies that you really want to keep yourself! Its great to buy local and support such talented people, you’re sure to get a completely unique and unusual gift.


We’re big into handmade and this year Christmas cards and all! Mark a friend of mine also an archaeologist has drawn our own personalized card that’s just lovely isn’t it! Love the little robin!
