Well, I was going to start Christmas in store after half term BUT, Marks and Spencer are in full Xmas mode already. I have been asked for Christmas cards for a couple of weeks now, SO, Christmas is officially starting now.
We have all our lovely Christmas puddings from Berries of Port St Mary, Xmas teas, chocolates, Christmas cards and lots of Manx themed Christmas decorations.
Customers are starting to pop in to our shop in Douglas to ask about MANX HAMPERS.
We can suggest our usual breakfast hamper which contains vacuum packed Manx smoked kipper fillets (2 packs), Manx blended breakfast coffee, Fairy Bridge tea, Staarvey Farm jam and marmalade, Jerry Norton's Manx honey, Apple Orphanage Manx apple juice (2 bottles), Ellerslie Farm Manx extra virgin rapeseed oil, Vacuum packed Manx bacon, Selection of Manx cheeses and a Manx tartan tea towel.
Or how about a Manx Christmas dinner hamper which contains Manx blended after dinner coffee, Manx blended tea, Manx Cheese selection, Staarvey Farm chutney, 3 leg chocolates, Berries Christmas pudding, Isle of Man Fudge Factory fudge, Manx Knobs and a Manx tea towel.
The Manx Taster Hamper has Leela’s Kitchen Onion Bhaji mix, Isle of Man Quinoa, Paula’s Kitchen granola, 3 leg chocolates, Isle of Man Fudge Factory fudge, Apple orphanage drink, Staarvey Farm preserve, Staarvey Farm dressing, Jerry Norton Honey, Ellerslie Farm extra virgin rapeseed oil, Manx Knobs and TT tea.
A Pamper Hamper containing a selection of soaps made in the Isle of Man by Lovely Greens, Ballaleece farm goat soaps, Little tree soaps, Snaefell soaps plus a body balm and bath bomb. We really do have some fantastic talent in the Island.
We are more than happy to make up bespoke hampers for as little or as much as you wish, so why not pop in to MostlyManx or Presence of Man to discuss it with us.
Don't worry we are not going to decorate our window with Christmas STUFF until we are closer to the late night shopping dates in Douglas.
In the meantime the Xmas puddings (with packaging artwork by Dr. Jeremy Paul) are already flying out so don't miss out.
Until next time
