The Luxury Tea Bag Collection -Twinings Tea Gift Hamper

The Luxury Tea Bag Collection -Twinings Tea Gift Hamper | Christmas Goodies | Scoop.it

I am a tea drinker and love to have different flavors in the pantry.

 

My favorites are Chai tea and Earl Grey. But, I find Christmas an extra special time to receive a box or basket of tea bags or even loose tea leaves because the gift is such a lovely treat.

 

I love the Orange Spice. It is particularly nice, since the wonderful aroma wafts through the house giving it that cozy, comfy feel. Plus, on cold days, the scent makes you feel all warm inside.

How to Wrap a Present

How to Wrap a Present | Christmas Goodies | Scoop.it

This is a great way to learn how to wrap presents. I remember as a child wishing my mother would let me help, but she always said she wanted the wrap perfect.

 

I couldn't have wrinkles, it couldn't be too loose, and it couldn't be too wide. Everything was measured and cut evenly. The tape had to be put in the right place, too.

 

Hey, were they talking to my mother when they made this video?
