Christmas, ‘tis the season to be jolly’. A truly heart-warming and sentimental time of the year, when everyone, despite the good or the bad tends to lean towards a more relaxed, happy, generous and thankful state of mind.
Even though we are all prone to eat and drink a little more than we should – we do still have our priorities in the right place, choosing only to eat and drink excessively whilst spending quality time with loved ones in celebration of life, over some very jolly and fond ‘merry old christmas carols’.
And, alongside eating and drinking, we also like to be a little extravagant with the sharing of gifts and gifting our households with lavish decorations and warming Christmas designs.
Nowadays, the whole Christmas ordeal starts a little earlier than the traditional 12 days before – and although there are many who are always well ahead of the Christmas calendar (already stocked up on all their presents under their fabulously decorated tree), most of us keep to a more traditional style and are still yet to start.
Either way, with just a few weeks left until the 25th of December, there is still plenty of time to get inspired, creative, stock up the fridge, buy gifts and get into the christmas spirit.
Our store has ordered in, just for you, the most wonderful new line of Christmas decorations. From nativity set ups, contemporary soft santas and his reindeers, modern baubles and tree hangings, wreaths, festive xmas tea towels, cooking aprons and much much more for you to get a handle on your creative interior designs.
Plus we’ve come up with some beautiful DIY Samos Deli Hamper Ideas that you can gift others with or simply add to your Christmas home decor and kitchen. There’s no need to be lost for ideas or where to go this year, as our German Store, Delicatessen & Pasteleria in Santa Eulalia is full of inspiration.
The Ultimate Christmas Hamper
A Christmas hamper (or basket) is truly a wonderful gift. It creates a festive feeling that can only be created at this time of the year. And, if it’s homemade it will hold a special value for both parties who are giving and receiving. It’s a thoughtful and personal gift, and you can save yourself plenty of money by doing it yourself compared to buying the ready made product. The beauty is, you can tailor design each component to suit personal and dietary preferences.
Make your hamper as simple or as luxurious as you like – opt for a ‘Cheese Lovers’, a ‘Fine Wine Lovers’, a ‘Christmas Sweet Tooth’ or a ‘Seasonal Specialty’ Hamper.
Pop down to our little shop, grab a basket and pick a handful of items based on your hamper theme. With homemade jams, chutneys, herbal teas, gourmet products, cold meats, German cheeses and larder goods, christmas chocolate and sweet specialties, freshly baked breads, cakes and pastries and so much more – we are sure your find all the right confectionery and foods to create your desired hamper.
We even have hamper baskets on sale. Fill the bottom with some old news paper, pile in your goods and decorate by adding one of our on sale soft santas. Add a little natural green foliage and some red ribbon and voila, the ultimate homemade Christmas Hamper.
Create your theme and ask our team in store to help you select your items and your hamper basket as well as some festive decorations and get all Christmas inspired.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. With Love Your Samos Deli Team, Santa Eulalia, Ibiza.
