Lujos gears up for Christmas

I know, I know! Sometimes you feel that from October onward, Christmas is shoved down your throat, and here I am, comin’ at you with Christmas talk!

Well, I love Christmas, so I can’t help it. It’s a time of year to think of friends and family, not yourself. It’s a time to give gifts, ranging from that special little something to a warming gift of home-made goodies.

We do both here at Casa Tyr. Despite the fact that it’s also our olive harvest time, we take a day and make home-made sweeties for all our friends. It’s usually a combination of recipes that doesn’t take too long to make, as it’s just the two of us to make them, and we only have a day to do it! So off we go, making truffles, peanut brittle, ginger cake and fudge. Then we wrap up a jar of something made from our summer harvest, and a bottle of Yunquera Gold olive oil. Top off with a bottle of cava and it’s a special gift!

Christmas Eve arrives, and these 2 little Santas rush off to deliver the bags of goodies. Our English friends are delighted, our Spanish friends bemused. But it’s mostly for us that we do this, as it makes us feel so good!

Lujos is busy at Christmas, too. Many people like to give something a little bit different at Christmas, and with our handmade, fresh and natural products, it’s easy to find something to please everyone. We always include a little pot of something in our friends’ bags, too – a nice-smelling body cream for the ladies, and something manly for the guys.

Why not take a look at the Lujos site, and pick out something for your own loved ones? They’ll love you for it.
