Christmas is cool,I especially love the copious amounts of giving that goes on, the majority of it being treats that we eat with less guilt than usual. I join in on that fun, baking Christmas goodies and giving them away to anyone that hesitates long enough for me to hand them some. White Christmas, chocolates, shortbread and oreo balls have already been made in the Howard home this year, but the favourite has to be this one:
I originally saw Jen Hall create these little packets of goodness, adding a picture on facebook and making more than just me exclaim outloud how cool they looked. I couldn’t get to the supermarket quickly enough after that, there were reindeer noses to package.
Any excuse to buy Jaffas and Maltesers, really. Actually I need about 4 packets of Maltesers to the one packet of Jaffas. There is only one Rudolf nose in each little pack of noses, after all.
And THEN I visited this site, the original download place of the topper for the bags: Thanks so much to Kate Hadfield Designs for making this available. It was easy enough to download, change the image size to suit my cello bags and print out. If I’d thought about it long enough I might have added “From the Howard Family” to the topper before printing it out but I was too keen to get the Jaffas packet open, if I’m telling the truth.

And so many, many gorgeous little packets of giveaway goodness were created. They were given to Abby’s friends, attached to Christmas presents, sent with courier packages and Uncle Vaughan seems to be getting more than his fair share too – (Nanc, are any even getting home to you?!)
Enjoy this easy gift. (Love this time of year!)
