Have you ever bought a gift that’s taken all of your might not to open before the recipient has even seen you? Well, even if you’re not all gluttonous pigs like me I challenge you to not have a sneak peak inside the tin at least. Oh Biscuiteers, I love you.
Biscuiteers are my favourite brand for gift giving. Are you attending a baby shower? Or giving a gift for the new mum herself to celebrate the fact that you now know, ‘it’s a girl!’? Well they really have got it made.
If you haven’t heard of them before, they specialise in exquisite biscuits. They’re usually presented inside a beautifully designed tin which can be used over and over again. One of their tins was actually used as a communal cutlery tin when I worked at ELLE, ha!
Each piece is lovingly iced with a host of different colours and immense attention to detail. The biscuits themselves are rich vanilla or chocolate baked biscuits. How many other brands can say they bake in their bespoke baker’s oven and then cool them on wire racks before being iced and packed into special unique tins?
These Beatrix Potter ones come in at £45 and are my favourite!
For £65 there’s also the option of a giant tin of personalised new baby chocolates . Yummy. I like to call this the gift for the tricky mother (or father) who has everything already and you’ve no idea what to get them.
Then there’s the baby on board biscuit cards (£9). A unique way of wishing someone the very best for their pregnancy. It’s a vanilla biscuit that’s lovingly hand-iced before being carefully packed in an illustrated gift box and popped in the post for delivery (right).
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, they even offer a personalisation service on some of their biscuits.
Take the Christening biscuits above for instance (£39.50). There’s the option to add a hand-iced message to the pram biscuit in this tin, (just choose the personalised option from the drop down).
If you order before 1pm you’re eligible for next day delivery. Great for people like me who leave everything to the last minute.
