'How to eat your Christmas tree' gift box
*Please note - I've had to put a pause on these for now whilst I isolate due to coming into contact with someone testing positive for Covid-19*
This year, to celebrate six years of the HOW TO EAT YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE project, T.E.A has curated the HOW TO EAT YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE gift box. Full of edible and lip smacking Christmas tree goodies from the cookbook and artisanal makers, from Finland to Greece, who also make treats and delicious things using pine, spruce and fir. Perfect as an environmentally conscious gift this festive season, this is a plastic free option and all packaging is reusable and VERY keepable.
