HOPE & JOY At Meg Rivers Bakers Of Happiness

One thing lockdown has taught us, is just how much we miss the little things in life.  Meeting family and friends, being able to pop out for a cup of tea and cake.

I know that lockdown has now been relaxed and we are now able to pop out for a walk around the shops, or a cuppa and cake with friends catching up.  But for some people this is still only a distant memory, where they are still having to isolate.

For those still unable to venture out, how about arranging a treat for them and helping charity too.  HOPE & JOY have a hamper which comes with tea, cake and therapeutic treats.

Relax Hamper

The Relax Hamper costs £40 and £4 of this is donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust.  The family who own HOPE & JOY have made it their mission to raise £1million for cancer charities across the UK.

The hamper includes –

  • Clementine & Almond cake, laden with citrus syrup
  • 5 tea pyramids of ‘Cosy Chamomile’ tea from Hoogly
  • A ‘Do Breathe’ book by Michael Townsend Williams
  • Two scented therapy balms – ‘Be Happy’ and ‘Sleep Well’ – from Scentered
  • A special greetings card, with messages ranging from ‘Special people deserve special cake’ to ‘Thinking of you’

The two greeting cards that I received.

My Opinion

When I was asked if I would like to review the hamper, my first thought was how can I refuse cake.  I have been looking at hampers to treat my Mum and Mother In Law and give them a treat.  All the hampers I have seen have had something missing and not quite what I have been looking for.  This one is perfect and has everything for a relaxing treat.

The cake is amazing and has to be tried to find out just how nice it is, as for the tea well everyone enjoys a nice cuppa with their cake. I love aromatherapy, so was over the moon with the two scented balms and have tried them and love them both. I have only had a chance to glance through the book, but have a couple of free days and will be enjoying reading it, from what I have read of it, definitely something I will enjoy.

If you are looking for a gift for someone special, or even a treat for yourself, I fully recommend this hamper.  Plus you will also be helping Cancer charities, again another area very close to my heart.
