Truffles for teacher

With end of term looming fast on the horizon, it’s almost time to say thanks to your child’s favourite teacher for all they’ve done for your darling daughter or son throughout the last year. There are several teachers in our family who have all admitted that their once-spacious cupboard above the kettle in the kitchen is now choc-a-block with mugs from past pupils.  It’s not that they’re not grateful – they tell me that each and every mug brings back fond memories of individual children.  It’s simply that they can only drink out of one mug at a time! So this year, I’ve done the hard work for you.  I have personally researched what a teacher would love to receive instead (and let’s face it, most of them have earned it!)  The winner hands-down turned out to be “something we can use and won’t hang around in the back of a cupboard”. Put yourself in their shoes.  After a full morning or afternoon of scolding Hamish for pulling Jessica’s hair, listening to girls’ incessant chatter about Justin Timberlake  and trying to keep the noise level above a dull roar, what would get you through ’till hometime?  In the (assumed) absence of hard liquor, we think it would be some good, strong coffee, matched with an energy surge provided by some delicious, quality chocolate truffles. And that’s just what we’ve popped into our luxurious “Thank You Teacher’s Gift Set”, priced at only £12.50 – a 100g bag of pure ground coffee, along with a box of six truffles.  They’ll be the envy of the staff room! Remember that all our gifts are hand produced and are therefore limited, so make sure you get yours well in time, before we sell...

Ashby Treats says “be good to yourself in 2015”!

December 2014 has to have been without doubt, one of the busiest months ever for Ashby Treats.  We’re still seeing people come into the shop to say they saw our Advent Box on “This Morning”.  In addition, we were delighted to hear that our website had won a national award, and we will give you more details when they appear online.  Both of these events are testament to the hard work put in by our fantastic team over the last 12 months.   You might think that with Christmas over, we’d have time to take a breather, but you’d be wrong!  Before the festive season had even ended, we were planning delicious new gifts to introduce for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and even Easter!  All the products in our new ranges need to be ready to be photographed next month, so it’s all hands on deck once more.   Have you made and broken your New Year’s Resolution yet?  Perhaps the reason why they’re so hard to keep is that inevitably, they tend to involve changing your lifestyle or depriving yourself of something.  So why not make a resolution that you can keep, and promise to be kinder to yourself in 2015?  To help you along, we’ve a whole host of new goodies ready to be unveiled, as well as a new range of coffee beans for those of you who love your coffee fix, so get ready to treat yourself!   Here’s wishing you a happy, healthy and indulgent 2015, from the Ashby Treats...
