As someone who has always embraced the idea of giving hand-made/home-made gifts, I was really looking forward to taking delivery of this book. It arrived today, I have read it through from cover to cover, and I cannot wait to try out some of the recipes and novel packaging ideas. Recipes and instructions for making gift packaging are written in an easy-to-follow format, accompanied by clear photographs and step-by-step pictures. A great purchase, super read, and something I know I will come back to time and time again.

I love this book, not only are there lots of gorgeous baking recipes to try (and a couple of boozy ones!!!) but also beauty recipes and packaging ideas. It is a fantastic all round book for crafters and bakers and anyone who makes gifts for friends and family and wants to try something a little different and new. I for one have found at least 5 baking recipes I want to try this weekend as well as some of the beauty products as this is something I have never done before and with easy to follow instructions and gorgeous photos I think I will be having a go for gifts for this Christmas.

I love it, it's just arrived and I can't put it down. The photos are great and the instructions clear. I love that it tells where to obtain all the things you need to make the recipes.
I can see this book getting a lot of use for me and also things for the children, either to take to school or for them to get involved with. I'm also thinking I could use one of the beauty recipes to make with my daughters guide group, especially with Christmas coming up.
I'm really pleased with the book and would definitely reccomend it.

A perfect combination, how to make, bake and package your gifts all "wrapped" up in one book. Simple instructions, fabulous photos and a whole bundle of ideas to keep me busy right up to Christmas and beyond. I treated myself to this book, then along came my daughter has already nabbed it and made batches of body scrub.
