German Christmas Treat Box - Spiero

German Christmas Treat Box - Spiero


All you need for a taste of German Christmas. My mother grew up in Bavaria so I'm a big fan of these treats.

Spiero's website also features a beautiful range of German homewares from enamel and glass to bone china and textiles.

It wouldn’t be Christmas in Germany without gingerbread (Lebkuchen) .The master baker Fraunholz prepares his lebkuchen with over 45% hazelnuts and almonds to produce some of the finest gingerbread in Germany.
The marzipan is made to a traditional Königsberg recipe which uses rosewater and caramelised sugar for a subtle nutty taste without being overly sweet.

In addition the box contains vanilla wafers, a handmade coconut bar and dark chocolate Orangettes. 

The centrepiece of this gift is a handblown glass candle holder made by craftsmen in the Thuringian forest. The heavy green glass is the shape of an advent star.
Everything is wrapped in tissue and packaged in a handmade Spiero gift box. There is even a gluten free version of the box - bonus!
