5.0 out of 5 stars A joy to read and a thrill to make things from 8 Nov 2012
By Louise
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I absolutely LOVE this book. I often find myself curling up on the sofa with it and just reading it from cover to cover again and again. The pictures, layout and texture are just so inviting and the way in which it's written so engaging. I want to make absolutely everything from it as gifts for Christmas, but have persuaded myself to keep some things back for future years. I thoroughly recommend it as a gift for anyone interested in cooking, gardening or just making lovely things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Book!!!!! 14 Dec 2012
I came across this book by chance and as I love cooking and giving self-made presents I decided that I had to have it! Moreover now we have a vegetable plot and a big garden where I can grow anything I feel like as long as it grows in this climate and type of soil. Every time the author presents suggestions she introduces a new type of herb, fruit or vegetable and gives suggestions of how to grow them.

The photos are very beautiful so is the overall layout. This is also a beautiful book to have on the coffee table or to give as a gift! I haven't tried any of the suggestions yet (there are recipes for cheese, cakes, beauty creams, liqueurs and much more!) but I have already adopted some of the packaging ideas for my Christmas presents! I am sure that I will be trying out many of the suggestions in the near future, if not most of them! I recommend it from the bottom of my heart! Really worth the purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars A gift for all the senses 9 Aug 2014
Prepare to surrender your senses, this book is a delicious assault on the pleasure zone from before page one. I cannot remember the last time that I had a new book with Endpapers. Wonderful. The look and feel of this beautifully produced volume inspires the reader to believe that they too can create beautiful and inspiring gifts just like the author herself. Equally ravishing photography matches the seductive writing that tempts one to rush into the garden, grab a handful of leaves and an old tin can and (in a Blue-Peter-Here's-One-I-Made-Earlier moment) produce gifts that would put Antita Roddick and the etire Conran Clan to shame. When I was a child I had the Ladybird book of Things to Make and Do, which taught me that a clutch of cotton reels and some string was all I needed to eclipse Fisher Price. Now that I have put aside childish things, my adult indulgences are well served by this wonderful book. Parsley dog biscuits (to counter terrier-breath) and home made creme de cassis (an autumn-season of kirs before bedtime) are on my immediate to do list, and I shall be rescuing old creme de marons tins from the recycle bin to become designer planters now that Debora Robertson has shown me the way. And there are so many recipes that will be tried in the coming months, for certain, whether for using as gifts or propping up my own comfort zone.

The cosmetics and skin care stuff is probably beyond me, but so many of these ideas are explained so simply and described with such seductive ease and skill I am won over by the encouring words to aspire to the glorious pictures than make this a rest-on-your-knees, Sunday morning breakfast in bed, page turner.

And if you really cannot be bothered to make such tempting gifts as the author suggests, then the only alternative present to consider giving anyone is this very book itself.
