Cadbury have put together a delicious set of 9 Milk Chocolate Tree Decorations all wrapped in their signature purple with delightful festive images on each one.

The squares of chocolate can be hung on the tree by the golden strings or popped in a bowl, either way they are there to be enjoyed.

Tealight Holders, £2 each from Tiger Light Holder by Tiger

Christmas is a time of twinkling lights and cosy nights.  There is no better way to get that sparkling, yet homely feeling than with candles.  Of course they can be dangerous to just dot about everywhere, so a perfect addition to your home this Christmas are the fantastically festive Tea Light Holders from Tiger, just £2 each.

Robin Reed Handmade Crackers

Every table is garnished with a festive Christmas Cracker or two when dinner time rolls around.  Sometimes is can be a little bit of a trial to find a set that suits everyone in attendance to Christmas Dinner, so Potter & Rest have had a rather smashing idea in the form of Robin Reed’s Handmade Crackers that are Ready For You To Fill.

Crackers for you to fillAlready loaded with a joke, snap and traditional paper hat, all that is needed from you is to add a suitably sized gift, (which is super easy to do).  So if you are fed up of the usual miniature pack of cars, magnifying glass and pair of nail clippers, that seem to come in most crackers, pick your own.

For a special piece of jewellery, an heirloom, hand crafted item, small keepsake or even a ring for a special question, whatever your gift choice these fabulous festive crackers are just the job.

Available from Potter & Rest for £9.95.
