Classic Christmas Movie & Goodwill Hamper

For the last few years once December arrives I make a positive effort to embrace the build up of the festive season. I  like to do one festive activity a day, it helps me to get through my Christmas to do list, add some fun things into the mix and to keep my Christmas spirit flowing.

Some of My Festive Activities
  • Buy myself a Christmas Treat
  • Visit a German Christmas Market
  • Watch a Christmas movie
  • Write my Christmas cards
  • Attend a Christmas Carols service or sing along
  • Decorate my Christmas Tree
  • Bake some Christmas sweet goodies
  • Visit a National Trust property decorated for Christmas
  • Enjoy a Christmas Hot Chocolate out and about
Today is the day I can tick off watch a Christmas movie - It's a Wonderful Life. So joined by my sister we settled down in front of the tv on a unseasonably warm December day with a selection of treats to accompany the film.  What better time to open the Goodwill Hamper received from Dobies of Devon

Good Will Hamper
The Good Will hamper was packed with lovely treats, I had already visited my Aunt Betty who is in her 8O's that morning and shared out some of the contents, she does love fudge particularly when it has a drop of Whiskey in it. 

Hamper items included:
  • Cornish tea bags 
  • Honey Oatie Flips 
  • Strawberry & Champagne Conserve 
  • Chocolate Chip Biscuits 
  • Clotted Cream Shortbread
  • Malt whiskey fudge

So we settled down with our lovely Cornish cup of tea and the Clotted Cream Shortbread Biscuits, which I will be honest got eaten rather quickly! I always think any biscuit that contains oats to be healthy and the fact that it also has honey in it has me convinced the Honey Oatie Flips must be the healthiest of biscuits :) 

I think a nice batch of homemade scones will be perfect to serve the Strawberry & Champagne Converse. Or do you think it a little  to decadent to use this on my toast in a morning, no surely not.  

What a fabulous little hamper (costs £22.99) containing just the right balance of treats whilst relaxing at home with your feet up watching a movie or reading a book. The perfect gift for a relative or friend.

It's a Wonderful Life
A few years ago one of the Christmas presents from my parents was a DVD of the Classic Christmas movie, Its a Wonderful Life. For reasons unknown to myself I think I must be the only person not to have see this film.  A black and white classic, it had elements of  Charles Dickens a Christmas Carol in the story. I enjoyed the second half of the film greatly, nice to see George Bailey played by Jimmy Stewart who did so many good deeds in his life be rewarded by his friends and neighbours when he faces financial ruin. 

In the build up to Christmas was this not the perfect way to spend a few hours, treats and a classic festive film.
