Absolutely, postively the most perfect gift ever.

Everyone needs a friend like Amy. She’s sweet. She makes sweets. And she sends sweets. Sweet, right?

Last Christmas I received a beautiful bunch of goodies in the mail, from Amy. There was scrumptious muesli and rocky road. It was amazing. Like the things you wish you could create yourself… but you don’t. Then half way through this year I saw that Amy had created the cutest ice cream care pack for a friend and I knew that I had to share it. She kindly made me one as well which delighted my family and our tummies {I didn’t even ask, honestly!}.

An ice cream care package is perfect as a gift for Christmas, but even more so as a ‘just because’ gift. Imagine feeling a little down in the dumps and then having this arrive… HELLO happiness. {I know it’s not that easy, but ice cream does make things that little bit better. Always}.

Inside the box was little bunches of ice cream toppings with lovely little handmade labels. You could tailor it to your friend’s tastes. Amy included: coconut, sprinkles, chocolate sticks, marshmallows, honeycomb, praline, peanuts, crushed cookies, almond brittle, m&ms & 100’s and 1000’s. She also included waffle cones – teeny ones and big ones too.

You can grab the packaging from eBay or Etsy, as well as wooden spoons, bags, twine and ice cream bowls. I like the ranges from Sweet Style.

If you’re hand-delivering {rather than posting} you could add little extras like sauces, meringues and the actual ice cream too.

On Christmas Eve I’ll be hosting a little ice cream party. We’re having my sister’s boyfriend for the first time and he loves a bit of ice cream. I know I’m no Amy, but I’ll give it a red hot go!

Thank you Amy for sharing, from me and my tastebuds. xx

Let’s talk ice cream. What’s your favourite flavour? Topping? Do tell.
