The decorations are up in the street, the ads are on the telly, the snow has begun to fall and Mariah Carey is gearing up for another year dominating the radiowaves. That only means one thing – it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
In the Pix family, Christmas is a big deal. Me, Mumma and Papa Pix, along with the whole clan, love the festive season with a passion, and Mr Pix adores it so much it’s bordering on indecent (he’s been wearing Christmas socks since Halloween).
To cram every ounce of magic into this all too short season, we as a family do something Christmassy every single day, be it sitting down to a Christmas playlist, baking up some Mince Pies or just knocking up a spiced Chai tea to warm the cockles after a day in the cold.
This year, I’d like to share this Pix family approach with all of you with the introduction of a new website feature that I’m very proud to unveil to you – the Katie Pix Advent Calendar!
Every day throughout Christmas (including Christmas Day, if you need some last minute inspiration on the big day), come to the Katie Pix website and open a new window to reveal a real Festive Treat.
Behind each advent calendar door will be a recipe idea – and it’s about so much more than just food. There will be handmade gift ideas, drinks and cocktails galore, as well as recipes for sweet and savoury treats that will be, as always with Katie Pix, quick, easy and super tasty little gems of indulgence. Make sure you come back regularly as new advent calendar doors unlock each day!
And to add more festive cheer to the season, I’m running a daily giveaway with the amazing team at Biscuiteers. Every day they will be giving away a wonderful handmade, hand decorated Christmas Tree biscuit to one lucky winner. And to be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is be a subscriber to the newsletter – so get signing up if you fancy getting your hands on a delicious treat from Biscuiteers.
If you’re not fortunate enough to nab one of the prize biscuits, fear not! Biscuiteers have set a brilliant example of festive cheer and decided to gift a 10% discount to all of you lovely people when buying their biscuits, right up until December 25th. Simply use the code PIX10 to get your hands on a deal that is as special as it is delicious.
With daily inspiration, daily giveaways and a lovely little discount for you all, we’re feeling full on festive at Katie Pix – hopefully these little treats help you feel that bit more Christmassy every single day.
