A couple of years back my sister's and I began a new tradition.
During the year we gather 18 little gifts and then add to these with 6 more which can either be drunk or eaten.
Making a total of 24, one to be opened each day leading up to Christmas Day.
We have a rule that no gift should cost more than £1.00.
Keeping an eye out all year round means you can pick up some real bargains along the way.
At the end of November we gather together to exchange them all ready for the first of December.
This year I bought gifts for my sister T, T bought for our sister C and C bought for me.
I am going to attempt to share them, if not daily, then as often as I can.
My first gift was this reindeer cake tin.
This morning I opened the first edible gift.
A packet of Viennese biscuits, the kind that melt in the mouth and once opened don't last very long!!
