There are traditional meats and creams and custards, Christmas Cake and pudding, wrapped pudding and Newcastle boiling pudding and hampers adorn the walls.
Bioling Puddings from the Newcastle Puddding Lady.
It doesn't actually cost a lot to buy a bottle of Moet. There is always the baby bottle that can give a sense of luxury. Or there are some fantastic Australian wines and champagnes to select from.
A touch of Champers.
You can always add a boutique beer.
A touch of Champagne, a boutique or Coopers Ale. There is even expensive water that can be given or consumed. There are a few good bottles of Grange Hermitage tucked away there too.
Cant forget the fresh fruit; strawberries, cherries or fruit salad.
After all this, there is still the turkey and a few babbles to go. Hopefully a few gifts have been found and at least some Xmas foods bought to be consumed on the 25th December. (Often too, the Xmas stock is reduced just before Xmas, as well as at the great January sales).
And if the journey home seems a great trek, you can always stay for coffee or a bit to eat at Sensory Lab, but that's another experience all together.
