Christmas is fast approaching and I am so excited to start baking up all of the festive treats. The pre-orders have been coming in and I love seeing which boxes people are choosing. This blog is packed full of info all about the Christmas bakes, so if you’re wondering how things work, what’s on offer or when you need to order by – read on.
The Christmas Bakes
This year I’ve got a whole festive range of bakes on offer. From traditional bakes such as Christmas cakes and mince pies, to indulgent treats like Malteser reindeer brownies & sticky toffee flapjacks. There’s lots of selection boxes to choose from, and you can also buy nearly all of the bakes from the selection boxes as a box of 6. I really hope you’ll love them all, and that you don’t have too much of a hard time deciding which to go for! Here’s a few of my personal favourites.
To keep up with all of the Christmas specials, this year there will only be a limited amount of each product available. I uploaded a limited number of them all a month ago, so that those who are early-bird shoppers could get their orders in. This coming Friday, 27th November at 7pm I will be updating the stock numbers of all of the Christmas boxes. The numbers of stock you will see left are the only ones that will be available, so if there’s only a small amount and you know you want that box, then make sure you get your orders in sooner rather than later if you can.
To keep up with all the Christmas specials, a lot of the regular boxes will be marked as out of stock from the 4th December. This is written on all product pages affected, so you’ll know which you can’t buy for Christmas. Favourite bakes such as chocolate orange brownies, toblerone brownies, Jammie Dodger blondies and Biscoff blondies will still be available all throughout December.
The whole Christmas range are available to be sent out the week of the 2nd December, the week of the 9th December and the week of the 16th December. So whether you’re just looking for a treat to get you through December or gifts to give to family – there’s a wide range of times to choose from. The boxes will be sent out on Mondays-Thursdays on the weeks specified, so you can expect your boxes by the end of that week. If you’d like a box ideally arriving for a date later on in that week, just pop a note in the box at the checkout and I’ll do my best to get them to you for the date. i.e if it’s someone’s birthday on the 14th December I’ll send the box out later on in the week commencing 9th.
Buying multiple gifts at once
All of the products on the website include the cost of postage & packaging. This means that you can buy all of your Christmas gifts in one go – if you want to. Just make sure that you add the name and address to the box that says “If you are purchasing multiple gifts, please leave the name and address you’d like this gift sending to here”. Then add your gift notes to the order before popping them in your basket.
Last order date
The last order date for Christmas is the 13th December. However as there are only a limited amount of boxes of each product, if they sell out sooner then the last order date won’t be needed. For this reason, it would be best if you can get your orders in as soon as you can do. I’d hate for you to miss out on your favourites.
If you’re looking for a bigger gift to give this Christmas, subscription boxes make a great gift that keeps on giving. It sounds a bit cliche but they really are a great gift for anyone. Whether it’s those people you never know what to buy, the cake lover in your life, a gift for a family, or an extra treat for your other half (so you can steal them..!). Both the cake subscriptions and brownie subscriptions are available in 3, 6 or 12 month blocks, so they can suit different budgets. Every box comes with a downloadable gift certificate in your confirmation email, so you can give that on Christmas day and they can enjoy their first box come January.
From today until 11th December there’s some special offers running on all subscription boxes.
- 3 Month Subscriptions have 10% off
- Receive January’s subscription box as a free gift to you, with 6 and 12 month subscription purchases
Happy Christmas Shopping!
I hope that’s all helpful info for you and that you can enjoy your Christmas shopping from the comfort of your own sofa! Your orders mean the world to me and I’m so glad that you choose to shop at Little Bee Bakes. I’m so looking forward to dancing around the kitchen to Christmas songs and for the smell of Christmas bakes to fill the air. Cheesey I know, but I absolutely love it.
