Last Minute Christmas Presents from Cold Storage

By now, I’m afraid if you haven’t already pre-ordered your roast turkey and festive sets, it might already be too late for Christmas. The last I checked, there were still a lot of turkeys in the frozen section, if you so wish to do the honours yourself. It’s actually not that difficult, as long as you have a large enough oven. I’ve always wanted to roast a whole turkey myself, but each year I always end up eating out or being invited to friends’ Christmas parties.

As for last minute Christmas gifts, I have a great tip for you. Forget about squeezing with the Orchard Road crowd because that will most probably drive your blood pressure up. I think supermarkets are one of the best ideas for last minute Christmas gifts. You can consider buying your last minute Christmas presents from Cold Storage, I think that would be a saner option. And I’m not lying when I say that I’ve done so on many occasions!

Here are my top picks of great last minute Christmas gifts from the supermarket!
  • Olive oils (look for the artisanal ones or olive oils infused with herbs)
  • Teas (You can get Gryphon Tea here too!)
  • Ghiradelli Hot Chocolate (a Californian brand of which I’ve been wanting to visit their factory!)
  • Cake-mix, whisk and cup cake papers (yes, quite unconventional I know, but good for girlfriends who have been swooning over pretty but overpriced cupcakes? Get them to make their own! This must surely be a unique gift idea!)
  • Tea biscuits
  • Wine (see the list of wines that Cold Storage is retailing below)
