Jingle bells and whistles: Festive products that double as decorations
These Christmas treats double as decoration for your hampers and parties
Christmas is coming, and that means parties and the time for gifting are around the corner.
Getting gifts for our families and friends is easy as we know what they like, but we have all been through those moments when we stand in the middle of a shop and amid the bustling crowd, lost about what to get for colleagues or acquaintances because of the unpredictable Secret Santa game.
We want to seem like we have put in a lot of thought and effort into the gifts but do not want to spend too much time getting frustrated over what to get.
Save yourself the angst and customise your gift with a hamper.
Fill the base of a wicker basket with crepe paper - or cotton wool, if you want to make it look like snow for additional Christmas vibes.
To make the hamper even more festive, add a tin of Olive Tree cookies ($5.50 to $8.50).
Indulge your colleagues or acquaintances with Danish butter cookies. If they are health conscious, get them oatmeal cookies. For gingerbread Man fans, add ginger cookies.
A tin of Redondo ($2.95 to $6.25) fits the mood too - the striped cream wafers look like candy canes.
Both Olive Tree and Redondo products are available in Christmas packaging and exclusive to FairPrice.
From now until Dec 27, spending a minimum of $30 in one receipt entitles you to a Christmas lucky draw where up to $100,000 FairPrice gift vouchers can be won.
The baskets do not have to be grand and over the top - we know it can be difficult to find suitable baskets for your hampers. Sometimes, tying a ribbon around a teddy hugging the decorative tins can be cute enough to warm your colleague's heart.
Gifts aside, we know that planning a Christmas party can be a hassle, with food and decoration - two of the most important things - to decide on.
That is why the snacks in Christmas packaging bring you and your guests the best of both worlds.
The colourful tins of cookies can even be used as decoration to fill your home with a festive vibe. The best part is you can feed your guests at the same time.
Olive Tree cookies come in three different flavours and are made with premium quality ingredients, while Redondo's cream wafers come in a wide assortment of flavours, including cookies and cream, vanilla, strawberry and chocolate - the perfect selection for your guests to choose from.
Plus, if your child is begging you to leave some cookies and a glass of milk below the Christmas tree for Santa Claus, you know where to get them.
In those beautiful tins brighter than Rudolph's nose, the cookies are sure to catch the attention of Santa Claus - or your guests.
