Growing up, I don't remember a Christmas without a Marks & Spencer bag under our Christmas tree-- be it a M&S apparel, M&S lotion or fragrance (Magnolia!) or M&S food. There was always something to look forward to because apparently, Marks & Spencer is my relatives, and my dad's colleagues and friends' favorite Christmas gifting brand.

The Sweet Tooth Gift Guide

Marks & Spencer's Belgian Collection, Dutch Shortcake, Chocolate Rounds and Chocolate Biscuits are just some of my favorite sweet treats and they definitely make for great Christmas Sweet Tooth Gifts this holiday season. And why shouldn't they be? Their food selection are very appealing-- both inside and out! Delicious treats with pretty packaging, definitely a sure win, yes?

This year, my little assistant helped me pick the perfect gifts for our family. I would ask her what she would like to give a particular family member as a Christmas present and she would then choose an item she thinks would be perfect for that person, her eyes and heart set on that gift. So to everyone who are about to receive a gift from Vania, please expect nothing but Swiss chocolates and Belgian Chocolate Biscuits! Hahaha! Tried to talk her out of it-- to no avail. No new surprise right there, really.

Like all the previous Christmases, our gifts are carefully thought of, never generic. if I am not making my Chocolate Marble Loaf to give to friends and family, you'll find us scouring the mall for personalized gifts. For a side of sweet treat, we add a little something from M&S of course!

In line with this, there's a special holiday story worth reading and it's about Davao's pastry queen and the first Wilton Method Instructor of the Philippines-- Booboo Maramba.

Pastry Chef Booboo Maramba's M&S 20/20 Holiday Food Gifting Mission

"Food is the wisest gift to give with desserts and chocolates the most popular. It can be enjoyed by many plus the sweet treats can double the happy feelings this season."

Cebu Fashion Bloggers, Cebu Bloggers, fashion bloggers, food bloggers, beauty blogger, beauty bloggers, cebu beauty blogger, cebu beauty bloggers, lifestyle bloggers, asian blogger, cebu, philippines, social influencer, online influencer, philippine bloggers, philippine fashion bloggers, toni pino-oca, Cebu Fashion Bloggers network, cebu fashion blogger, cebu bloggers society, cebu blogger, online shopping, fujifilm philippines, fujifilm xt-10, cebu style blogger, cebu style bloggers, cebu style blog, marks & spencer cebu holiday gift guide 2017, cebu digital influencer, cebu fashion blogger 2017

Chef Booboo is renowned for her beautiful, classy and meticulously decorated cakes specifically for milestone celebrations. She may have set the spatula aside waiting for her successor, her daughter, to take over, but if she does pick it up, the client must be really close to her heart, or extremely lucky.

On special occasions like Christmas she would concoct something special for her closest friends and family. But as much as she wants to customize each gift, the long list will make it a very challenging task. For this reason, she goes to shop food for gifting at her preferred food and fashion brand-- Marks & Spencer.

"I am assured of the high quality of their food products."

The pastry chef is on a 20/20 mission. On Marks & Spencer’s 20th year in the Philippines, the brand is filling the shelves with more than 80 assortments of delectable indulgences exclusive to the holiday season. From these selections, the pastry expert selects 20 of her best food gifts to give.

“Just like the cakes I bake for gifts, the food item choice will depend on the like and dislikes of the recipient, and must of course be age-appropriate.”

For the whole family to enjoy, Chef Booboo suggests the Operetta, Praline and Nut Selection Box, Belgian Collection, Six Month Matured Frosted Snowflakes Christmas Cake, Nine Month Matured Intensely Fruity Christmas Pudding and Biscuits for Cheese.

For tea lovers and their after dinner treats, the chef recommends the Festive Classic Tea, Cranberry & Clementine Jaffa Cakes, Short Bread and Assorted Biscuits in decorative, reusable tin cans.

Kids love chocolates and M&S made it doubly irresistible. The milk chocolates wrapped in shimmering tin foils are quite attractive as it is delicious, and the Paddington Bear bonus stick on will delight the young souls.

The adults tend to have mature taste buds and most favor the less sweet treats. Chef Booboo suggests the Swiss Dark Chocolate Truffles, Viennese Biscuit Selection, Turkish Delight, Brandy Snaps, Pudding Selection, Orange Golden Caramels and After Dinner Mints and for variety, the Milk, Dark and White Selection Box.

“I have always been a fan of the M&S food selection. I have my personal favorites like the shortbread cookies because it’s not too sweet and the unique packaging is a bonus, especially the Christmas tree tin can. I also love the Turkish Delights as it pair well with coffee or tea. The assorted chocolates, which are not too sweet as well, are divine and truly melt-in-your-mouth treats.”

This pastry chef-mom knows best. Trust her.
