A drink for today, something good for young and old, for the young serve just as it is, for the slightly older, a swig of Baileys might make this in to something even more yummy.
You need to drag out some of the French you learnt at school to translate the recipe, but it's nothing too complicated!

You can find the original recipe here

This might not quite make it in time for Christmas, but this is a perfect gift for a knitter!
It's a decent size, and a reminder, that with a bit of faith, anything is possible.

You can buy it from School House Press, jus scroll down the page a little.

How about a Stocking Filler for any Harry Potter fan?
Even better, providing you're handy with a pair of scissors, and have a printer you can make it for free!

Your very own, Marauders Map.

Aren't these Christmassy?
They're traditional German biscuits, sort of a cross between a macaroon and a meringue, the original recipe has cinnamon in it, we can't stand cinnamon here, so I'm thinking with nutmeg they might be nice.

I like my food, in fact I more than like my food, I love really good food!
I also like my sweets, but I'm quite fussy about them, I'd rather not eat chocolate than eat rubbish ones!!

And these happen to look like very good ones.

You can buy them from this Edinburgh based Etsy shop- ZukrBoutique

It was around this time last year that I ended up snowed in for nearly a week...
The snow combined with a chest infection meant that I went a little stir crazy stuck inside. Every year I make paper snowflakes to stick on the window, but this year maybe I'll change it up a little and make some paper chains.

Both an idea for a make if you're crafty, or a place to buy it if you're short on time.

Rice filled fleece pockets, you put them in the microwave for 25 seconds, and you have re-usable handwarmers, perfect for keeping your hands warm in chilly weather. If you're handy with a sewing machine these would be dead quick to make, if not you can buy them for a really reasonable sum here
