There is no denying I love food, especially those unique and handmade items that are made with love and attention.  I was delighted to receive goodies from Prestige Hampers to review.  It certainly helped get in to the festive spirit as we move in to November.


I was gifted the Christmas Sky Hamper which came in a beautiful wooden vintage style crate.  I do think the lovely people at Prestige Hampers looked at my blog to send me something that they knew I would love!


The Vintage Chest

The hamper arrived well packaged and all the goodies were in a stunning vintage chest.  This was an added bonus as I now am using the chest in the bathroom!  It is sturdy and well made as well as being in a beautiful neutral colour.


What’s inside the hamper?
