Completing my Bucket List

“It’s always tea-time” – The Mad Hatter

There’s nothing curious about the Alice Confectionery Gift Box from Whittard, in fact, this is one of the most beautiful Christmas gift sets I’ve seen this year.

Inside the ribbon wrapped box, are five chocolate bars featuring illustrations from the classic children’s book “Alice in Wonderland”, and strawberry flavoured shortbread which just scream out “eat me”.

Plus everything you need for your own Mad Hatters Tea Party.  Tippy Assam loose tea and an Alice, Key-handled mug.

They won’t make you shrink or grow, but everything in here is magical.

You can purchase this gift set here for £40.00 – worth every penny.


“Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly. “I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can’t take more.” “You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.”


With our British winters starting after the three days of summer we get, hot chocolate is a necessity in our home.

This gift set with both milk hot chocolate, white hot chocolate and a large jar of marshmallows is the full kit you need for a cosy, winter night in.

Make sure to make your hot chocolate properly with hot milk, it tastes so much better this way!


There’s hot chocolate … and then there’s hot chocolate. We’ve packed a gift box with two of our luxury hot chocolates (classic and white), accompanied by a generous helping of mini marshmallows. Contains: Luxury White Hot Chocolate 350g Luxury Hot Chocolate 350g Tub of Mini Marshmallows 230g

You can buy this luxury hot chocolate gift box here for £18.00.

I would be delighted receiving any of these for Christmas, and I’m sure you know someone else who would.


Along with a fondness for sideburns, crinolines and cucumber sandwiches, the Victorians knew the value of a good cup of tea. None more so than our founder Walter Whittard, born in 1861 to a family of successful leather merchants but destined to pursue his principal passion: to source the finest quality tea, coffee and cocoa from across the globe. His was a tale of the most refined connoisseurship, inspired by no shortage of imagination…
