Lakeland Christmas Gift Ideas

Here's a few little Christmas ideas that I spotted at the Lakeland Christmas show earlier in the year. I might have to put a few of them on my own list this year!

Starting off with some Doctor Who goodies:

Deco Spoons - these spoons are great (if a little fiddly) for adding a little decoration to your plated desserts and you get two different sizes in the pack, £14.99.

A particularly cool gadget that separates the yolks from the whites of the egg with a squeeze! Yolk Hero £6.99.

I love my Damascus paring knife which is the baby in this range of beautiful knives. The knives undergo a process of "lamination where the super-hard carbon steel core is layered with 67 coatings of stainless steel for a distinctive blade that is strong yet flexible with a superior cutting edge". The handles are really comfortable to hold and I like the weight of the knives, from £29.99.

Make your own stamped biscuits with this kit, comprising of 3 silicone stamps, a cutter, 6 gift boxes with labels and a recipe booklet £14.99.

I tasted the wines and cider from the kits and they were rather good. Lakeland have been working with the suppliers for several years to come up with the best tasting wines you can make at home.
