First Noel Christmas Basket

Indulge family and friends with the First Noel Christmas Basket, filled full of the perfect tastes of Christmas this will be a winning gift for all.

From Award Winning Reids family bakery, try a savoury snack with a difference with smoky sea salt and strong Cheddar shortbread. Bursting with flavour they are guaranteed to brighten up any cheeseboard.  Or how about a raspberry and white chocolate sweet shortbread biscuit.  Rich and buttery with a hint of raspberry and chunks of white chocolate, both of these shortbread’s are irresistible.

Savour the sweet taste of the continent this festive season.  The Chloe’s all butter biscuits have been dipped in milk chocolate then generously coated in a velvety creme fondant and topped with frosted cranberries for extra indulgence.

From the best pastry chefs in Southern Italy comes the Positano Tarelle.  Treat yourself to a true moment of delight with these mini tartlets sumptuously filled with a hazelnut cream.  If you prefer something more traditional then the rich fruit cake topped with cherries and almonds is a must.

The Mr Filbert’s really interesting snacks are an indulgent Christmas treat.  Flavoured with black truffle and sea salt the artisan nuts capture the seasonal taste of Christmas and brings joy to your taste buds, its no wonder they captured a Gold Great Taste award!  Whilst Mackies of Scotland have kept the festivities going with their pigs in blankets flavoured luxury crisps.  Gently cooked to perfection.

And for a sweet treat try the Fudge Kitchen’s speculoos nut brittle. Homemade crunchy gingerbread brittle, packed with almonds, walnuts and peanuts.  Or how about the House of Flavours prosecco and raspberry chocolate cups. Luxurious chocolates at their tastiness!

The Lottie Shaw’s mouth watering mince pies are just like Grandma just to bake. These shallow-filled pies have thick, moreish pastry with a good dollop of tangy, boozy mincemeat.

Just add your preferred flavour of pate and a bottle of you choice and you will have created a wonderfully magical Christmas feast and something to tempt everyone this Christmas time.

Presented in a traditional willow hamper basket and finished with a hand tied gold Christmas ribbon this is not a gift to be missed.
