For me, Christmas is all about the three F’s: food, family and friends. Gimme those three things and I’m a happy girl. But, what is it about the Christmas period that makes everything you eat and drink taste so much better? Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate all year round but there’s just something different about eating a Christmas themed chocolate, despite the fact it’s exactly the same recipe and ingredients. Perhaps it’s Christmas magic?
Virginia Hayward specialises in luxury food and drink hampers and has been doing some research on what it is that we all really do love to indulge in this time of year. Take a look at the nation’s favourite festive flavours below. I can’t say I’m surprised by the results and even as the UK’s fussiest eater, even I love 6/10 of the food/drinks: cheese, biscuits, chocolates, crackers and of course, prosecco and wine.
Of course, this means that I’m a big fan of all of the iconic duos so if you’re reading this, feel free to send me endless supplies of these. However, I do have a confession that I’m embarrassed to admit. I’m not a true cheese fan. I’ll take all the cheddar, all the mozzarella and all the halloumi but that’s about as far as my cheese taste palette will stretch.
Anyway, that’s enough about my preferences *hint hint*, the point I’m trying to reach is that there’s no need to spend hours and hours panicking and stressing over finding the perfect gift this Christmas. Virginia Hayward offers ready made hampers as well as the option to build your own hamper so that you can truly enjoy the gift of giving this year.
