A Tamil Feast – Tamil Feasts, $30 per person

Chosen by: Cliff, Co-founder

A special culinary treat to look forward to after all the hard work at Christmas…great flavours and all prepared with love. A fun night, and a unique cultural offering

Summerland House Farm Macadamias - Gifts for hosts Summerland House FarmMacadamia Hamper, $46.80

Chosen for: My mother in law
Gifts for the host - persian spicy fig jam by Sisterworks

To ease the burden of having to supply all the nibbles on Christmas day, or she can keep them for later and doesn’t have to share.

SisterworksPersian Spicy Fig Jam, $12

Chosen by: Antonia, Marketing Coordinator
Chosen for: My friend’s parents

These are people that I don’t really know so very personal gifts wouldn’t suit because I don’t know their preferences (for decor or art etc). I do know that they like food, and we can all share a bit of the jam on Christmas morning to bond.

Oz Fair Trade - teacup apron and oven mitts

Oz Fair Trade – Super Sweet Teacup Apron and Oven Mitt, $15 and $18

Chosen by: Caroline, Marketing Manager
Chosen for: My boyfriend’s mum

A practical apron with a cute print to keep her outfit spill-free when she’s preparing the meal, and a matching oven mitt. I think she’d appreciate that it was ethically made by women in Nepal, supporting them after the devastating earthquake a few years ago.
