T'was the Night Before Christmas

November 06, 2019 Claire Kitching

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap,
Feeling very relaxed having bought all my Christmas gifts,
in one visit to George & Joseph in Chapel Allerton,
For Grandad a Port & Stilton Hamper
For my sister and her husband tickets for January's World Cup of Cheese,
For mamma £100 worth of G&J vouchers to spend at her will,
And for Great Auntie Brenda a Baked Camembert Hamper,
My brother Roger received a Festive Cheese Selection,
My twenty clients a George & Joseph Hamper each, 
And as a little gift to myself a copy of Ned Palmer's book;
A Cheesemonger's History of the Great British Isles,
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!

We have been updating our webshop over the last month and now have it fully up to date with lots of great gift ideas for your loved ones this Christmas. 

We have a range of food and drink hampers from £21.50 up to £95 or you can create your own by just popping into the shop, purchasing a box then filling it with whatever you want to suit the recipient. For any corporate gifting enquiries please contact us for a quote.

We have also posted up tickets for our monthly World Cup of Cheese Tastings until June next year - which make lovely gifts, and if you don't know the date you would like to book someone in for you can always buy them a tasting gift voucher for them to choose their own date. 

We have also collaborated with some of our suppliers/friends and have scheduled three cheese and booze tastings for the new year which are another great gift idea, such as the Lambic Beer & Cheese Tasting in March with Friends of Ham. Or again you can purchase a Cheese & Booze Tasting Gift Voucher if you aren't sure which they'd prefer. 

We now have a new section to the website called Cheese Selections and we've started off with our Seasonal Selection which changes every four months as the seasons turn. Our first celebrates winter/the festive season with our top cheeses for the next few months. With approximately 1kg of cheese and some exquisite accompaniments this makes either a lovely gift of a great cheeseboard for you and a group of friends. 

For all information about Christmas at George & Joseph please go to our Christmas page where you will find our festive opening hours, our downloadable Christmas Order Form, information on cut off dates and deliveries, and other gift ideas such as our gift vouchers.

Merry Christmas from all the George & Joseph Cheesemongers!
