It’s pretty easy to get my attention, just put something in nice packaging and I’m all over it. During my Yorkshire weekend, we (my Sister and I) popped into Waitrose for a quick shop and I took it as an opportunity to buy some sweet things for the boys.
I totally fell in love with the boxes of these Artisan Biscuits, the contents were rather nice too, especially the Lemon Curd flavour and they were shaped beautifully as well (sorry, we ate them before I could get the camera out!).
I couldn’t resist adding a couple of boxes of fruit Yo-Yo’s to the trolly, again with pretty nifty packaging.
I also recently fell in love with these ‘Postcarden‘ which I saw on Mother Baby Earth blog (if you don’t read Kath’s amazing blog you really should, she was once kind enough to feature The Linen Cat and I’ve been following ever since).
I let the boys choose which one they wanted, Felix opted for ‘Conservatory’ and Charlie for ‘Allotment’
once assembled and filled with the provided cress seeds, they were super quick to sprout
unfortunately, Felix wasn’t as impressed with the taste! He was happy to nibble a bit but wouldn’t let me put any in his egg sandwiches. As the name suggests, the reverse of the box is a postcard so you can mail them off as gifts, needless to say I’ve stocked up on a few for the many parties F gets invited to now he’s at school; honestly, his social life is much better than mine, he seems to be out partying most weekends 🙂
