Dining al fresco in the park on a red plaid sheet with a basket full of fresh French bagels, jam, a selection of cheeses and a few glasses of vino: The simple pleasures! PICNIC is an original hand drawn and silkscreen printed illustration by Mengsel which for me encapsulates the joys of English summers.
For little Hansel and Gretels we are loving this super easy to assemble chocolate house. The box contains all your little ones will need, including a colour-me-in garden and chefs hat. This kit is great for independent creation and only needs supervision during the melting stage. Everything slots together easy but I'm quite sure the fun will be had in dismantling it once again. The fabulous part is that this kit can be used again and again just give the plastic moulds a wash and voila, you're ready to create a whole street!

Ok so we don't want to get you all panicked, but, Christmas is well on it's way now. But never fear our solution to all your gifting woes is the aptly named Gift Guide Friday, where we are going to give you the best food gift ideas for those you love.
First up is the office secret Santa!
Well the only time we bond with our colleagues is orienteering once a year or, more frequently, over lunch. So, we have some base knowledge on *Pete in accounting*, he likes food. Food is always a great place to start and undoubtedly going to gain you some (forgive the pun) brownie points for not getting the generic bath set or novelty socks. We have pain-stakingly picked out the best products to wow the office, and they are all under the usual £10 limit.
1. USB Mug Warmer: Your colleagues warm beverage of choice need never go cold again. Plug straight into a USB port and place your mug upon it. For only £6.95 it ticks all the boxes: useful, novelty, unusual and you'll have some change left over. From Dotcomgiftshop.
2. Festive Tea collection. A gift that the entire office will undoubtedly benefit from. Sure to get all in the festive mood with its warming Chai and Spiced Winter Red Teas and luxurious Chocolate Flake Tea. Bang on the £10 target but if you want to go a touch over the site offers a nice gift wrap service. From Teapigs.
3.Large Milk Chocolate Florentines. The italian biscuit that oozes all of the finery and pomp of christmas. Presented in a neat box with Harrod's ribbon a plenty you won't look like your scrimped and saved. Perfect for the boss. £9.95 from Harrods.
4. Christmas Chocolate Ballotin. Another no-wrapping-needed gift! With 14 individual chocolates it is the perfect gift for chocoholics, quality to please connosuiers and classics to please the fussy. £7.00 from Whittards.
All appreciation on post cards please.
