Christmas Eve Box Giveaway!
For many of us, Christmas is one of the most exciting times of year. Households all over the world will celebrate in their own special and unique way. A tradition many share is the magic of leaving a mince pie* and a glass of milk for Father Christmas, with a crunchy carrot for his trusty reindeer, Rudolph (*other treats available). Other countries celebrate Christmas on the 24th, so perhaps it’s a reflection of our wonderfully diverse community that we are slowly adopting new traditions. Over the past few years, a new tradition has been coming to homes across the world. The Christmas Eve box. Those that embrace the idea, favour it as a wonderful way to start the Christmas festivities a day early. It has become a way of giving a small collection of gifts that the family can enjoy together in anticipation of Christmas. Is Christmas all about gifts? Absolutely not! The magic of Christmas is having those around us who mean the most. Simple pleasures and treats we can look forward to as a family can be part of the excitement. Popular items to include are Christmas pyjamas, a book, a toy, some snacks and reindeer food. It can be whatever you want it to be.

We have seen so many people excitedly sharing ideas of what they are preparing for their Christmas Eve box.

Glosters pottery decoration in aid of Doctor’s without Borders
Babipur loves supporting other independent businesses, especially local ones. So we were very excited when our friends at Glosters, a Porthmadog-based pottery, agreed to work with us to make some beautiful Christmas decorations. 100% of the sale price of each decoration will be donated to the charity Doctors without Borders, or Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF). We hope you love them as much as we do. If you want to know more you can read about them here.

Hot Chocolate No. 3 from Brontie and Co
We think that a yummy hot chocolate on Christmas Eve is just the perfect drink to snuggle up with on the sofa in your Christmas PJs, and to watch a film together as a family. Simply mix with water or your favourite milk, if you want a creamier version, sit back, relax, and enjoy. This is not a product stocked by Babipur, but Brontie makes the most delicious raw and vegan chocolate and treats. Brontie is an inspiring and motivated woman who made a big change in her life, so as to make her dreams of producing raw chocolate a reality. She wanted to make a difference with every purchase, so her business donates a large percentage of its net profits to charities close to their hearts, including Doctors without Borders.
Ananda’a Original Vegan Marshmallows
Well it wouldn’t be hot chocolate without Marshmallows would it now?! Made in Derbyshire, Ananda’s Marshmallows are suitable for Vegetarians, Vegans & Coeliacs. Made in the UK by hand, in small batches and contain completely genuine and natural flavours. A delicious treat for all the family to enjoy.
