I recently tried the Festive Treats Gift Box. It arrived very well packaged in a sturdy box to stop it getting damaged. Inside there is a stylish grey box which has a charmingly illustrated Happy Christmas sleeve. This means that your foodie gift is all ready to put in a Christmas stocking or under the tree. Inside the gift box are three very tasty treats. A generously sized box of melt in the mouth Belgian Chocolate Fudge, A box of crumbly Cranberry and Rolled Oat Biscuits, which are delicous, and Spiced Plum Preserve in a a very attractive, reuseable, branded Cartwright and Butler jar. The Preserve is the ideal companion for a morning croissant or afternoon scone.
The Cartwright and Butler family have been making exceptional treats for more than 70 years, and this heritage shows in the quality of both the packaging and the food. The Gift Set has an RRP of £20.
