Verde Christmas Biscuits - an old family favourite reimagined

Throughout the year, we get these specialty biscuits made locally, using my Mum's beautiful vanilla biscuit recipe, which is a family favourite. This year, our biscuit maker has created these delightful prancing reindeer and star biscuits. Both are under $10. Great to pair with a cute little Japanese bowl (see below).Verde Christmas Biscuits

Pure Tasmanian honey and wooden honey spoon

These honey's from Bruny Island are delicious & we love that they are locol. Collected from bees feasting on a variety of trees such as Blue Gum, Eucalyptus, Banksia, Tea Tree and Leather Wood, creating a collection of delectable flavour profiles unique to Tasmania. Paired with a wooden honey spoon, this would make a perfect little gift.
