Whether you have a sweet or savoury tooth, these platter and grazing box companies have the perfect festive offering.
Christmas Eve is a time where many people, especially in the evening, will cosy up on the sofa with their family and enjoy a festive movie.
And although Christmas TV and films are great, there’s only one thing that makes the experience all the more fun, and that’s the snacks.
While a grazing or platter box may not be a conventional snack, it is something your whole household can enjoy – and adds a special touch in what will be a very different festive season. Platter boxes also make for a thoughtful gift for those you are unable to get together with this year.
Usually packed with cured meats, cheeses, nuts, fruit and more, sweet versions typically feature everything from macarons, biscuits, chocolate, sweets and occasionally, chocolate dipped strawberries.
As the trend for grazing and platter boxes has continued to grow since the start of the year, it is no surprise many companies are getting in on the seasonal action by now offering their products with a festive twist.
So for anyone keen to get their hands on the perfect Christmas Eve spread, we’ve rounded up some of the top places offering them locally.
