Ad Feature by Robinson’s Fresh Foods

2020 has been a bit of a shocker globally, and we’re all pretty much ready to see the year out. But before we wave goodbye to this year, it’s time to celebrate the most wonderful time of (certainly this) year: CHRISTMAS.

Christmas is class, isn’t it? A time to whack your feet up, eat a full packet of roses (and then hide the evidence), and watch the Queen have a wee chat about the year. While the pubs and restaurants certainly light up this time of year, Christmas day is for showing off your culinary skills and making the most banging roast of the year.

This year, it’s easier than ever to support local while making sure your families are full. Robinson’s are providing all you need this Christmas: from the big day, to New years get togethers, to lazy days around the fire, watching Christmas movies (anyone else able to recite Elf by heart?)


While Robinson’s provide some incredible local produce that will make your Christmas dinner rival Nigella’s, they also provide the very symbol of Christmas: the Christmas tree. While a plastic Christmas tree is all very well and good, nothing quite beats the fresh smell of a real tree- and who can be bothered with all the faff? With the Christmas tree park opening this week, heading down to pick out your tree is the perfect way to get into Christmas spirit.

If there’s a year to really embrace the Christmas spirit, it’s this one. Start your Christmas dinner off with a starter of Queenies and Manx Chorizo, an iconic combo brought together by Paddy’s award winning smoked salmon. Lay your table out with some Robinson’s crackers, and you’re ready to go. Robinson’s are ready to supply you with all your meat needs. Go all out with their Christmas meat hamper which includes every piece of meat you could want, including the best Christmas treat: pigs in blankets. Robinson’s can also provide you with your 5 a day, including the very festive sprout. And, of course, no meal is complete without the humble spud.

If you haven’t had enough by then (I’m not judging…), Robinson’s can also provide you with a Christmas pudding- including options for vegans and people who need gluten free diets. If you’re feeling a bit peckish after that, a Manx cheeseboard always goes down well. Select your favourite cheeses, or indulge with one of Robinson’s cheese hampers.

If you’re wanting to make the Christmas experience extra luxurious, Robinson’s home delivery service means you can order all the essentials (and non-essentials… whack some biccies into your basket, you know you want to). You can either get it straight to your door, or click-and-collect at a time convenient to you. EASY.

While we might be treating ourselves, the spirit of Christmas, of course, is giving. And what is better than a bit of booze and food? There is something for everyone. Know someone who is missing Bushy’s this year? Grab the Bushy’s Stay Safe 2020 gift. Know someone who likes the finer things in life? The Eltoora Sparkling wine and Belgian Chocolates will undoubtedly go down a treat. Know someone with a sweet tooth? Manx sweet delights will be sure to impress. 

This year is truly a year to indulge. So grab something with an elasticated waist, and treat yourself. You deserve it.
