If you are looking for something a little different as a stocking filler these maybe worth trying. I’ve not tested them, or even seen them, I just got their press release and thought it was worth repeating, I leave it to you to discover if they’re any good (or not):

Their Press Release:

This Christmas Steenbergs is delighted to announce their new range of hand-blended Old Hamlet mulling spices, presented in traditional cloth bags which are hand sewn in the UK. Dating back to Medieval times, mulled wine has been enjoyed as an aromatic warming drink during winter months, especially at Christmas and Steenbergs is keen to carry on the traditions but with bright, bold packaging and fabulous festive flavours.
