Now that the holiday crunch is over, I have been able to appreciate some of the cool gifts I received and will be presenting a few here as we move into the new year.

FF: Dark and Rich Hot Chocolate Flakes from Prestat

A nice steaming mug of hot cocoa is a nice treat this time of year. My brother and sister-in-law know me too well, they gave me a nice package of Dark and Rich Hot Chocolate Flakes from the fine folks at London-based Prestat, and it is delicious!

About the Dark and Rich Hot Chocolate Flakes from Prestat:

“What do you dream of as you sip this luxurious drinking chocolate? Open fires and childish laughter, memories of being wrapped in cashmere blankets, snow on the ground, frosty lawns, Father Christmas squeezing down chimney pots, stockings ready, suspenders too, sunshine holidays and summer days. Delicious.”

FF: Berkshire Bourbon Whiskey

Meanwhile, if you are looking to give me the perfect gift, all you need to do is head to the bourbon aisle and pick out some cool small batch brand. My soon to be nephew-in-law hit it out of the park with his gift of Berkshire Bourbon Whiskey from the fine folks at Berkshire Mountain Distillers. This nice bourbon is described as “smooth and balanced with bright notes of spicy rye, vanilla, and mature fruit. Lingering finish of caramel and toasted nut” – and I concur.
