    Wow these prizes are amazing, especially the chocolate hamper, which will all be used in baking and not at all for me to eat by myself- ahem!

  498. This would be so much easier than my current coffee making method – whisking it half to death with my dinky little hand whisk ;)

    This would be an amazing addition to our new kitchen… great prize for whoever wins the hamper!

  522. Mia Jacobsson says:

    This hamper would really make a difference to our Christmas. Please pick me. I don’t know what to say to really express how badly I’m hoping to win this. I want it so badly that I can feel it in my entire body, it’s a longing and a hope.

    It would mean so much for me and my family and it’s just not for items in itself. The past year has been so tough on all of us with death and a life-threatening disease after the other. I just lost my amazing uncle and two days before his funeral my grandma got a serious cancer diagnose. Everyone is a complete mess. Cancer is a such of crazy, evil disease and seeing a loved one slowly be taken away from life is the hardest thing that I have ever had to do. The cancer killed his soul and personality long before his heart stopped beating. We all just stood there, trying to do the best we could. We did everything we could to make it more comfortable for him, but it was just not enough. The doctors had already given up on trying to save him and we were all just waiting for death in a plain boring hospital room.

    I am not going to make a long and sad story, but winning this would really make a massive difference for us. You have no idea how happy we would be in that case. My entire family really needs a break from everything. Nobody have had the time or energy for preparing for Christmas. It’s just been too many other things going on. This is however the time that we need a good Christmas more than ever; to spend quality time together, be happy for a moment and regain some energy.

    I would like to give my grandma some of the kitchen tools that she is longing for. She absolutely love baking (and makes the worlds best cinnamon buns) and it would help her keep her mind occupied during her treatments. My 17yr old brother would be absolutely thrilled about the coffee machine. He is always trying to convince our parents to replace the other one that (according to him) is “from the stone age”. My mum would be so happy if she got the cooking books, she always likes trying a new recipe. It would be a dream come true if I could give them all this for Christmas. Please help me, so I can help my family.

    Ps. Thank you for a really good blog and cool recipes.
