Yummy Festive Food & Drink On My Shopping List This Season

If we’re facing a lockdown Christmas, let’s make sure our cupboards are well-stocked and our bellies are full of yummy food throughout winter, am I right? I’ve been putting this list together for a while now — not wanting to forget about my favourite confectioners, luxury hamper sellers, and fine food purveyors during the festive season. Some of these goodies, you’ll have to order early on in order to avoid disappointment. I’m going to get a few luxury items ready on order, like turkey, meats and cheeses, then plan the trimmings nearer to the big day. If you’re sending hampers to different ends of the country, don’t miss the final delivery dates! And don’t forget some sweet treat stocking-fillers for the kids to open on Christmas Day.
