Hello everyone! Is it just me, but are the men in your life so hard to buy for? There’s always the food option, but at Christmas everyone gets so much already, it’s nice to find something else! I put together this list of a few things so that you can give more interesting gifts this year 🙂

  1. A start-up last year i got my dad a scarf and it went down amazingly! He wears it most winter days now. I got mine from Amazon for £8.76, but you can get them pretty much anywhere.

  2. A cook toll- as with the scarf, there are so many cookbooks out there for the chef in your life. This one is also from Amazon for £6.99 and features the avocado. 2017 is the year of the avocado, so if you know anyone who loves it, this is a really good gift!

DREAM BIG!

Aspoonfulofthoughts

Hello everyone! Only 8 days to go! Ahhh I’m now excited. This one doesn’t really apply to me, but for those of you who just aren’t feeling those festive vibes, I’ve put together a list of things you can do to make you feel more christmassy! Today i have gone into an ultra festive mood, I watched nativity 2, made Christmas treats, wrapped presents and went Christmas shopping! How much more festive can you get!

  1. Decorate your house – if you’ve already done your big trees you could buy some little artificial ones for other places in your house/flat/ wherever you live and decorate these
  2. Wrap some presents- ahh there’s nothing like wrapping presents to get you into the festive spirit, grab a hot drink, some treats and then on that Christmas music and get wrapping!
  3. To Christmas shopping- you don’t even have to buy anything, but just looking around…

4 ways to be kind this Christmas – day 6

DREAM BIG!

Aspoonfulofthoughts

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all having a fabulous day! As the big day approaches, we often forget to spread the Christmas cheer and spirit, kindness is all part of this so why not, over the next few days, try some of these to make others feel better. This is such a happy time of the year, so why not make others happy!

  1. Complain Less- this one is easier said than done. There are so many people less fortunate than us that never complain, and I think we just really Take what we have for granted. I’m not saying i don’t do this, because I do it too. But I’ve decided to make a conscious effort not complain about stupid things.
  2. Give to charity – this is a very obvious one, but it will benefit relentless fortunate. You can give to animals, children, the homeless, anyone you want to. They WILL…

Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies

YUM!

Currently, Lately

Is there anything more festive than a good cookie recipe? One of my favorite parts about this time of year are all the desserts that get baked. In my family, we have a huge baking day when we make all sorts of different cookies. I captured a little bit of the process on my Instagram story earlier today if you want to check it out. But if you’re reading this any day other than the 22nd, it’s already gone.

Anyway, today I thought I would share one of my absolute favorite cookie recipes, which is for cherry chocolate chip cookies. These are great if you’ve got a sweet tooth. Plus, the recipe is really simple. (And who doesn’t love a simple recipe?)

Ingredients: 

  • 1 package of yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup of melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 package of chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup drained cherries

Directions:
