I attended a tasteful tea party to introduce Marks and Spencer’s food items perfect for the holidays and I just know I want them as gifts for my favorite friends this Christmas! Here are the top 5 reasons why:
1. They already come beautifully wrapped.
Plus, you can ask for a separate Marks & Spencer gift bag at the counter with matching gift tag, all for free!
Gift suggestions: Golden Snowflake Christmas cake (P915), a 6-month matured all-butter fruit cake; Merry Percymas Biscuit Tin (P895);Box of Belgian Chocolates (P1350); Salted Caramel Pinecones (P1450); Luxury Swiss Truffle Assortment (P1495); Italian Dessert Chocolate Assortment (P895).
2. They are surprisingly affordable.
A few Christmases ago, someone gave me the round M & S Digestive biscuits and I’ve been hooked since. The price’s only P150, which is impressive for something yummy Made in England. You’d be surprised to know that you can already get something decent and presentable at Marks and Spencer with a budget of from P300-500.
Gift suggestions: Classic Christmas Pudding (P495), a 6-month matured pudding, delicately spiced and packed full of plump, juicy vine fruits with cider, rum, and sherry; Salted Caramel Shortbread Gift Box (475); Iced Reindeer Biscuits (P495); Classic Recipe Puff Pastry Mince Pies (P395); Port & Long Clawson Stilton Handcooked Crisps (P235).
3. There’s a wide range of choices, from sweet to savory. And of course, M & S food and drink items are of good quality.
Cakes, shortbread, pudding, biscuits and chocolates are the things to look out in the sweets section.
For the savory, there’s the mince pies, Fizz & Sparkle Winter Berries & Prosecco Handcooked Crisps (P235); Goat Cheese and Rosemary Bites (P225); and Cheddar Cheese & Roasted Onion Bites
4. The brand is British, synonymous to royalty.
Believe it or not, a lot of people are enamored with anything British, whether it’s the Tower Bridge, the Spice Girls, Adele or HRH Kate Middleton.
I spotted these distinctly British goodies on the shelves and I must say they make for truly unique gifts!
5. M & S presents reflect your good taste.
This is quite explanatory. Sometimes we judge people by the kind of gifts they give at Christmas. Buying from M & S ensures we stay on the classy, elegant side of things. Besides, the packaging alone says it all. It’s a hassle-free way to shop.
