The first was definitely a real treat when it popped through my letterbox recently. Hotel Chocolat are a great place to look when you want to buy a little something for the chocoholic in your life - they are always beautifully packaged and feel decadent. This isn't your box of Celebrations or a hastily wrapped king size bar of Dairy Milk, it is the gift of chocolate, done properly. Their Christmas Collection box features a bottle of Prosecco, Butterscotch Puddles, mini box of chocolates and a Pecan Bûche. Trust me when I say that those chocolates taste just as good as they look. I think this would be a great present for a Mum, sister, work colleague - anyone who deserves an evening in with a glass of fizz and some really, really good chocolate.

The second slice (or should I say cup?) of Christmas gift inspiration I wanted to share comes in the form of the amazing Bluebird Tea Co Christmas Tea Bauble Set. These three baubles come packed with a selection of their Christmas teas - Christmas Cake and Gingerbread Chai. I quite like to buy a few little presents for family ahead of Christmas (last year I bought my Mum a really fun Christmas cushion from H&M) and this would be a perfect little treat to give to someone to hang on their tree - I don't think they'd be able to resist cracking them open for very long though!

What do you think of these two gift ideas? Are they something you'd like to give to someone - or even something you'd like to see under your tree this Christmas?
