As good as if you had baked them yourself

Fatherson Bakery says its festive collection uses quality ingredients and a tried-and-tested Fatherson owned 'secret' recipe, ensuring every bite tastes as if you had made it yourself at home. Made in small batches, the Christmas range includes mince pies, festive cup cakes, a cupcake platter and an iced Christmas loaf.

More seasonal sarnies from Urban Eat

Urban Eat's Christmas range includes the Turkey Feast and Vegan Feast Sandwiches; Turkey, Bacon & Stuffing Sandwich; Brie & Caramelised Onion Wrap; and the Pigs Under Blanket Panini. Wayne Greensmith, head of category marketing at Adelie Foods, said: "As competition for a slice of festive food-to-go sales intensifies, every year we invest in developing a genuinely appealing range that has passed rigorous taste tests."

Stocking fillers that can keep kids on car journeys occupied

Keeping children occupied on long journeys can be difficult; it's okay if parents have a premium model car equipped with the latest entertainment systems or families have iPads etc but not everyone does, which is where traditional toys come in. Hornby Hobbies has the answer with a range of toys which, although can be stocked all year round, would make great stocking fillers as we head towards Christmas.
