I couldn’t help but sing have a Mary Berry Christmas to myself when I started writing this review. I have really missed Mary Berry in Great British Bake Off this year, so seeing this new range cheered me up. I Just Love It have a personalised Mary Berry collection with everything from mugs to bread bins. Everything for the bake off/baking fan this Christmas.

Personalised mugs set

This mug set has a beautiful design. Both mugs came with the same name on it, but you can put two different names if you want to do a his and hers type of thing. Or maybe you want to have two different words, you can be as creative as you like. Made of fine china, the Patterned Mary Berry Mugs boast vintage inspired designs. One mug is beautifully adorned with a floral pattern, whilst the other mug features Mary Berry’s signature goose. You can buy this set for just £24.99.

Personalised bread bin and chopping board

I love this bread bin. The colour is just perfect, part of the palette for my kitchen when we eventually find a property. I also love the fact it has a chopping board as a lid. Such a great idea! It’s perfect for a Banana loaf cake too, see the yummy Mary Berry recipe below. The Bread Bin is designed from high-density tin plate, which means Mary’s signature goose logo featured on the bread bin will last a lifetime. Even more sensational, the wooden bread bin lid made from Beechwood brilliantly doubles as a chopping board – just what any multitasking baker needs in their kitchen. For the pièce de résistance, the wooden bread bin lid gorgeously features any Name engraved on the lid. I had “Sonia’s Bread Bin” added to mine. I love Bread. And cake. It’s a perfect gift for people like me. You can buy this bread bin for just £39.99.
