Good evening.  Thank you for all your lovely comments on my gift bags, the cards and bags are all delivered to the school, I am just now waiting for the last of the tray bakes to set. So that i can get the top layer of chocolate on.  Thank goodness in away it's only once a year.

Now a long with all the school stuff I have orders to get ready.  I am showing you a gift I made today.  My title tells you what's in it.   The idea is from Tammy, she is very good with the ideas.

 10 small bottles of red and white wine, some luxury mixed nuts.

All done up in a Christmas box ( Dobbies garden centre), some cello cling and Ikea ribbon I have had for years.  

Sorry about the photos being so spaced out I can't think how to move them up with out loosing them.

It's not a cheap gift to make up, but you could do it with less bottles in a smaller box.  This is a Christmas come thank you gift for Tammy's MILs neighbour who keeps an eye on her and see to her garden.  

Take care,

  12. Hi Hazel
    I get these nibbles from Lidl (yum) but as you say, the wine would add up a bit. Still makes a wonderful treat for someone.
    Enjoy your weekend.
