It's coming up for Christmas and what better post to do than a festive hamper post! Deramores kindly sent me this lovely box of items in the run up to Christmas to get me into the festive spirit and to show what you can create with their products. They sell yarn, patterns, books, needles hooks, accessories and kits for all your knitting and crocheting needs. Now I can't knit nor croche, but I can sew so hopefully at some point I will buy a kit to learn, but for now there are two items in this haul that you could create yourself.

You could pick up some of their items and create your own gloves which are vital in this freezing weather we have in the UK right now. I've always wanted some gloves that aren't plain black, and these ones are so lovely. Another item you could make yourself is a pair of fluffy bed socks. I am a huge lover of slipper socks as I work from home and want to keep my feet warm at all times. These are double lined with fluffy white insides and they're the warmest bed socks I've ever tried. If I could make these for everyone I knew, they would be an amazing Christmas stocking gift.

Onto the other items in the hamper, there are a few bits that you can pick up in Boots, such as the Champneys Cracker which includes a mini hand lotion, the No7 Glamorous Nudes Eye Palette and the mini Yankee Candle in Cranberry Ice. I'm going to make the most of these items since I've not tried anything from No7 or Champneys yet! From Benefit there are two items; the Moisture Prep Toning Lotion which is from the same range as their cleanser, moisturiser and eye cream that I used so I'm intrigued to try it out. There is also the Coralista Lip Gloss which looks so pretty and I can't recall actually trying a lip product from Benefit before, so this was a nice surprise.

I thought the Jack Wills mini stocking that had a lip balm in was the cutest thing ever, and I'll probably use the mini stocking itself to put chocolates in to hang on the Christmas tree! And of course, they included a candy cane which the inner child in me was excited about. A huge thank you to Deramores for my hamper and make sure you check out their website to see their knitting and crocheting items to start a project off for yourself.
