We we’re sent the below products for consideration when writing this post on edible Christmas decorations. All words an opinions are my own.

Christmas is a time for family, friends, twinkly lights, charitable acts and a little bit of indulgence. I love decorating my home for the festive season, every year I want to put up the tree earlier and have to resist until an acceptable date. Something I’m really embracing this year is having edible Christmas decorations, not only are they a lovely indulgent treat but they look so pretty and really bring a homely vibe to your tree and festive displays.

Here’s a roundup of my six favourite, tried and tested, edible Christmas decorations.

 

Chocolate Sprouts

Choc on Choc set out to turn the worst bit of Christmas into the best bit and I can tell you they succeeded! Forget bitter green brussels these beauties are made from solid white chocolate and handmade in the UK. I love how realistic they look and I’m absolutely going to prank my brothers with these at our Christmas Eve party.

Biscuiteers

It wouldn’t be an edible gift roundup if Biscuiteers didn’t feature! For those not in the know they make the most intricate, cheerful decorated biscuit treats all hand iced in London so each one is totally unique. They offer a stunning family size tin of 16 biscuits designed to hang on a tree as well as a host of other festive gifts such as the more affordable Christmas tree card. How beautiful is this hand iced Snowman biscuit? My talented friend Hannah at Make, Do and Push took this photo and kindly allowed me to share it.

Pickerings Gin Baubles

These baubles were an absolute sensation last year, selling out in 82 seconds! Having gazed lovingly at them on my tree and sampled the delights inside I can see why. This year Pickerings opened an extra distillery to keep up with demand so don’t worry, you can still order some in good time for Christmas. Personally I think they’re far superior to some of the alternatives I’ve seen this year for a few reasons. Firstly they’re a gorgeous range of colours and reflect the twinkly lights on a tree beautifully. Despite being plastic they look like glass so you get luxe without the worry of an accidental breakage. I think the flat bottom is a lovely touch because you can use them as part of a festive display on a mantle if they’re not suited to your tree. And of course, the gin is truly divine. Something else I really appreciate about these is that they deliver to both NI and the Highlands of Scotland. Bravo!

Custom Cookie Stamper

This isn’t quite a finished product but I think it’s amazing as the options are endless. You can use this custom cookie stamp to create your own personalised biscuits. Simply add a little hole to thread a ribbon through if you’d like to hand them on your tree. This cookie stamp is completely customisable and comes with a set of interchangeable letters, numbers and symbols. You could stamp on festive messages, family names or even something cheeky. The only limit is your imagination! We’ve made some lovely family friendly festive biscuits for our neighbours and I plan to make some more adult versions to amuse and irritate my parents in equal measure.

Gingerbread Elves

I’ve written before about these cuties from Little Treats Bakery, the elves are an alternative advent designed to be hidden around your home in the countdown to Christmas. We’ve been tucking them into our tree on occasions – Luisa loves hunting for them and wondering where they will be hiding each day. Each elf is individually wrapped and really tasty, they’re the perfect size for a little festive treat.

Filled Musical Biscuit Tin

This musical biscuit tin from Crabtree & Evelyn is filled with utterly delicious miniature all butter shortbreads. They’re made in a family run bakery in Edinburgh and you can really taste the love and care that’s gone into developing the recipe. The tin itself is beautifully festive and plays a gorgeous tune when hand wound. Luisa is captivated by the old time magic and I love that she’s able to appreciate the traditional, simple pleasure of a music box.
