Bumping again to remind you pennywise folks that homemade gifts are often very appreciated and now is the time to Google recipes for jams, compotes and pickles.
I have heard that Rumptof is delicious although I haven't tried it, but it's one of those make ahead things - as is the Elderflower cordial I will make this week - and fruit vodka, gin or brandy (so easy!!!!, but pretty). Never throw away a screw top bottle that is vaguely attractive is my motto!!!
Along with some homemade chocolate truffles and biccies, a made-it-yourself hamper is actually fun to put together - it is - honest - believe me!!!

I'm going to make my first batch of marmalade this year but I'm waiting for the blood red oranges to come out. Where are they ...? Shocked to admit it but I have already bought two of my children their Christmas present or maybe birthday as that comes first ... But great tips Georginazn - all good stuff and I'm going to get cracking ...

"18. Secret Santa - not as extreme as a complete amnesty. Basically, a price limit is set, say £20, and each member of the family only has to buy one present for one person or it can be a lucky dip."

I've been doing this for a while now. ahahah
