Christmas Comforts: Win an Interflora Christmas Hamper!

This time last year I learned that Interflora sell a lot more than flora. They also sell balloons, bubbly and wine, biscuits and cupcakes, fruit baskets, chocolate, teddy bears! And food and drink hampers, including a large range of Christmas hampers.

Last year I kept my Interflora hamper all to myself and was pretty impressed with the range and quality of goods included for the price. Not to mention the wicker hamper itself – I have a bit of a thing for wicker!

This year, I'm entering into the festive spirit of giving and sharing the goodies with my readers instead.

My best ever kitchen present was the magimix.

Well possible the best every present was the deposit on my flat which allowed a kitchen in the first place!

I think you have my e-mail address!

I had Christmas at home with my family in Ireland last year and then 'Second Christmas' with the boy's family. Boy's mum got her amazing local butcher to do his take on a terducken, which was a four bird roast with turkey, chicken, partridge and duck. It fed six of us for 4 days and was one of the most amazing things I've ever encountered in my career as a carnivore...

My best Christmas food was my mums mince pies.The pastry was just melt in the mouth and I have never been able to get anywhere close even using her recipe.

Delicious Elderflower liqueur with a booklet of recipes for using it in cocktails and jellies. I'm hoping that I dropped enough hints to be given the same again this year!

The best kitchen gift I ever received...well, there's a choice of two.

A set of three Prestige stainless steel pans, with wooden handles, gifted to me by my then boyfriend (now husband) and my best friend Helen in 1992. They'd clubbed together and just knew that I would love them. I still have them and love them to bits.

Then one year my estranged-for-a-decade Father gave me a briefcase full of kitchen knives. He knew almost nothing about me, but that...that was spot on and made me cry. :)

My lovely husband (then boyfriend, I suppose) gave me a beautifulovely Kenwood Chef (in delightful titanium...) which is not just the best Christmas Food Present ever but, I think, the best Present Evah!

It came in the biggest box you can imagine - I couldn't work out what it was at all - and I love it SOOOO much - I use it pretty much every day - it's rendered me a totally lazy cook :-)

A Fortnum & Mason's Christmas hamper not long after we were married - we didn't have a lot of spare cash and it made our Christmas.

Best Christmas present ever was my pink KitchenAid mixer. Worked well for my family since in return, they kept receiving yummy baked treats! I also love looking forward to my boyfriend's mum's shortbread cookies at Xmas every year :)

Best Christmas food? Definitely the Christmas themed cakes that my 5 and 7 year old baked together last year. Gorgeous! And made with love, couldn't ask for anything better.

A handmade Christmas hamper my mum gave me when I was pretty much penniless! She had put in all the little luxuries she knew I couldn't afford, as well as the guilty things I do really like (eg chocolate mini rolls!)

My best food gift was last year, it was just a little gift set with a bottle of wine and some cheese, but the great thing about it is it had stilton in, well i thought i didn't like stilton, but i do LOVE most cheese, so I thought i'd try it, no point wasting it, and i adored it, it's been the start of a whole new love affair with blue cheese :)

My best Christmas food gift was a Christmas Day meal my friend bought me at a railway station cafe in the Pryenees. We'd just been skiing in the morning and an extremely sweary very hungover chef made us grilled squid with garlic and parsley.
The chef was most entertaining.We bought him a drink to have as soon as his hangover would allow it to calm him down.

May at Slow Food Kitchen said...

My best Kitchen Gift ever was my first ever Kenwood mixer. It was the beginning of a bakerly love affair. When I grow up, I would like a Kitchen Aid. ;-)

Lynn Savage said...

My best kitchen gift ever was a spice rack my sister bought in Italy. It's a big hexagon honeycomb in red, with white jars that slot in the cells. It holds 52 jars and yes all of them hold a different spice or herb. It's quite possibly the best thing in my kitchen.

Best Christmas Foodie Gift I ever received was a bottle of Susie's Hot Pepper sauce from Antigua, it certainly spiced up the leftover turkey

tippytlawton said...

The best ever christmas dinner I had was after a hiddious night shift in A&E, (as a nurse) on Christmas eve and before I started again on Christmas night. Not the most amazing dish, panfried salmon, with caulflower and broccoli chese made with stilton and strong chedder and potatoe wedges but it made me feel so much better before facing the night ahead. Followed by a pint of Ben and jerry icecream...... Like I should say simple pleasures, when you are at your most tired are sometimes the best.

Send Champagne said...

I love hampers for christmas, I always make one for my grandad. I get together lots of goodies for him to have over the festive period. He loves it because I know all of his favourites! :)

Jay said...

I know this may be a silly question but do they deliver outside of the UK? This looks like a wonderful gift.

Clint said...

Jay, that is funny I was just thinking of asking the same thing. Will be nice to receive an answer. I actually addressed this question to their customer service department.

Kavey said...

They are an international company so certainly deliver many of their products internationally, though not sure on hampers...

Clint, do let us know if you receive a response.
