I made these last year as gifts in decorated shoe boxes, they look fabulous and everyone loved them. Never made myself one though.

Gave this as part of a Christmas hamper to parents and in-laws. Went down very well with both and was so easy and quick to prepare. Will definitely give this as a present again.

I was given this as a present from a friend - it was THE BEST mulled wine i've ever had! It was SO good, I asked her where she got the recipe from...I should have known it would be from GoodFood!

I made a lot of these for Christmas 2007. I covered shoe boxes with Christmas wrapping paper and made fancy tags with the instructions written on. Something so simple, inexpensive as you want to make it, well presented, traditional, useful, easy to do - went down well with all that received it last year. My efforts last year to make presents (all ideas from Good Food) impressed all that received, and gave all the incentive to have a go this year. Isn't that what Christmas is all about? Get in your kitchen this year, never mind fighting your way around the shops!!

I gave these to friends last year and they are still talking about what a nice gift to recieve, and we are nearly at Christmas again, so easy to do.
This year they will recieve a bottle of spiced Arancello and a bag of Fruity Christmas Biscotti, I hope these go down as well as the Mulled wine Kit.
