These ADORABLE gift sets are made by a friend who has started a business called Hello Darling. I fell head over heels for these cute packages and had to pick up two to give this Christmas. The utensils are ornamental (I love the painted tips) and would look great in any kitchen. Each gift pack has two tea towels included in them and they all look incredible. I wish I had photographed the gold chevron tea towel that is included in the gift pack on the right. Krystal sells these for $10 (crazy, I know!) a pack and she is happy to post them (or other Christmas goodies - check our her wreaths and feather jujus while you are there). Just click on the link above and you'll be able to contact her through her Facebook page.
This next one is all about supporting a local men's woodwork business. I think this mini bench condiments holder is such a clever idea. I've seen plastic versions of these being sold in Kmart, but there isn't much better than the quality of real timber. I plan on painting this pastel green and leaving it on our outdoor table. I took a photo of it next to Cruz's legs so that you can see how small it is. The two bigger holes are to hold tomato and BBQ sauce and the smaller two are for salt and pepper. Know someone that likes their barbeques? Maybe this could be a good gift idea for them? I have the gentleman's (who makes these) number - so if you want it send me a message and I'll forward it on. The price tag? $10! Crazy town.
Of course there are also going to be times where you have to make a mad rush to the shops because you have forgotten someone on your list or need to find a gift in a hurry. Woolworths sent me a few of their Jamie Oliver gift packs that they are stocking this year and I thought I'd share two of them with you today.
The first gift set would be for the kiddies. I love that this gingerbread family set would allow you to gift something (other than lollies) to a child that would provide them with endless fun in the kitchen. I'm thinking about throwing together the dry ingredients for gingerbread and popping them into a mason jar to include alongside this gift set. The gingerbread family set was retailing for $12 but is currently $8.40 - great value!
The second gift set is for the adults - in particular the cheese loving adults. Slate seems to be back in this year - I've seen it popping up all over the place and the forks included add a real quirky touch. The slate cheeseboard set (with five handy forks) was retailing for $20, but is currently selling for $14.
You can see more of Jamie Olivers range online and in most Woolworth stores.
