A few months ago, I was invited to take part in the John Lewis Secret Santa Challenge. Sadly there were a few a hiccups with the gift from my end which is why there’s been a bit of a delay in me blogging about it – I didn’t receive the original present from my santa so it had to be dispatched again. That did take the shine off the experience a little bit, but luckily the folks at John Lewis were really helpful and ensured a replacement gift was sent out to me promptly.
Despite the hiccups, when my gift did arrive it was more than worth waiting for, and I was able to find out that my Secret Santa benefactor was a lovely blogger, and fellow foodie, called Emma, who runs a blog called Adventures of a London Kiwi. If you’re planning a visit to London any time soon then do take a peak at Emma’s blog before you go. She provides loads of information about interesting and unusual places to eat, drink, visit and meet friends.
Emma’s gift to me was a fantastic Raymond Blanc Hard Anodized Aluminium Sauté Pan – completely swanky, right up my street, and I’m looking forward to cooking many happy meals in it!
John Lewis were incredibly generous with the selection of gifts we were able to chose from and I loved being introduced to a fellow blogger who was unknown to me before. A really well-thought out campaign and a really lovely challenge to part of.
Thanks Emma and John Lewis and merry Christmas!
