Last year we ordered our own personalised boxes of fudge from Jago at Farrah's of Harrogate. This year we are thinking of changing the fudge to personalised biscuit drums what do you think biscuits or fudge? Confused

Either would be fine for me! Wink

A change is good I guess, and then any returning guests (if you have some) will have a different present this time. At the end of the day, I assume it is unexpected, so hopefully it is a pleasant surprise whatever it is. By a drum, do you mean something that you can store things in after? A little reminder then of your place even when the biscuits have been eaten?

What a nice marketing touch. Expensive to get produced Cotterdale?

No it's really cheap just 1.88 personalised drum of biscuits with your own label.

That sounds a really good deal, and cheaper than the sort of gift you might buy in the shops. I will investigate further!

It's a guy called Jago I deal with he is always so helpful. I don't know if he covers your area but if you phone Farrah's of Harrogate and ask for him he will help you. I am not sure if I am ok to give his number out on here.

They appreciate it even more if it is homemade and not just bought.

Do you have a pic of your cake LV - I'm thinking it's a Victoria sponge with butter cream.

Lovely LV, and apexblue, a homemade sponge is just what we appreciated when staying at Annew's place. Just a shame that for those of us not on site it's not an option, so shop bought will have to do!

If I was in the UK, I'd do a Victoria sponge, definitely. As I'm in France, I do a local quatre quarts recipe instead. People always appreciate that much more than the bottle of wine.

I have had some great tins of fudge from Farrahs. Not expensive as long as its UK delivery - minimum 5 boxes (x12) tins. The tins clip lock shut like ground coffee tins, so I am hoping people will take them home to use. Everyone likes the fudge.

Wallypott - how much was the fudge per tin? Did email Farrahs but never got a reply. I was away for the last guests arriving and OH did not arrange a welcome tray. They left a comment saying how disappointed they were Embarassed

I think it 192 for 60 tins of fudge. Including delivery. Can't seem to find the email correspondence.

i do agree having new gifts for the guest from fudge to biscuits might actually give them bit of surprise and at least they get the feeling that you are very hands-on and you make it a point to really add a personal touch to whatever you think of giving your guest from time to time.It is also a good thing that you think of changing your gifts every now and then so that returning guests may have something new.
