We recently asked you to share your favourite stories - ideally featuring a sprinkle of festive magic - for a chance to receive our early Christmas gift! We loved all your sweet stories - from favourite books and films, to your own festive traditions and romantic tales! However, we could only choose one person to receive our gift and that person is…RUTHIE WARE! This is the story she shared with us…

“Every year since I was born my family and I used and reused the same advent calendar. It is made up of 24 small books, with beautiful illustrations telling the story of Christmas. When I left for university and faced my first advent away from home, I received a surprise gift in the mail from my mother. It was my own copy of the advent calendar. Now at the age of 24 I have gifted the advent calendar (on loan to another family with small children) so the tradition will continue somewhere else.”

Ruthie - congratulations! You will receive:-

*a copy of romantic bestseller, The Christmas Sisters by Sarah Morgan (published by Harper Collins.)
*a Pittenweem Chocolate Company bookmark
*a packet of our luxurious Hot Chocolate - handmade in Pittenweem. (note: you may wish to try our ‘Christmas In A Cup’ with orange & allspice)

Our favourite part of the festive season? Giving. AND. Receiving.  They go hand-in-hand! So, we’re fortunate to be doing both at the Pittenweem Chocolate Company with a little help from our friends at the Gift Of Christmas Appeal AND Santa, who will be visiting us very soon!

GIVING…

The Gift Of Christmas Appeal Fife aims to ensure that all children in Fife have a present to open on Christmas morning.

We are a collection point and we are accepting gifts until 15th December. Here’s an outline of the key details:-

  • The gifts are for ages 0-18 years old. 

  • They should be brand new and unopened

  • if possible, please place inside a gift bag 

  • please do not wrap them but feel free to include a roll of paper

  • please label the gift clearly with the age and gender of the child

We’d love to receive your thoughtful gifts! Please just drop them in the collection point at our shop on the high street in #Pittenweem.

RECEIVING…

It really wouldn’t be Christmas without Santa’s annual visit to our Cocoa Tree Cafe! And his little elves have just informed us that he’ll be flying by Pittenweem for a VIP tour, between 10 am and 12.30 pm on Saturday 22nd December. So, join us for a ‘meet and greet’ with Santa by our roaring fire! And, if you’re very good, there may be a surprise treat for you too…

Whether giving or receiving, we very much hope to enjoy your presence at Pittenweem Chocolate Company during the festive season!
