M&S Clementine Light Up Snow Globe Gin Liqueur & Prosecco Gift Box
Labelled as ‘this season’s must-have Christmas gift’ by Marks and Spencer, this year the brand has crafted a clementine flavour gin liqueur, and comes paired with a bottle of prosecco.
The sparkling light-up bottle, with edible 23-carat gold leaf, is a stunning new design for 2021 inspired by The Nutcracker ballet.
It pairs perfectly with the limited-edition Christmas Conte Priuli Oro Prosecco, presented in a beautiful matching gift box.
An online-exclusive set.
Collection Magic & Sparkle Light-Up Chocolate Box, 345g
Clearly, if there’s one thing M&S have learned from last year, it’s that we really love food products that not only taste great, but look pretty and light up.
As such, light-up snow globe liqueurs aren’t the only glowing product on offer this festive season.
Marks and Spencer has also launched a light-up chocolate box which looks like an idyllic village, with mini snow-dusted milk, dark, white and golden blond chocolate houses.
The sweet treats could make a great present for loved ones or something special to buy for yourself and your family to enjoy on December 25.

Spiced Sugar Plum Light Up Snow Globe Gin Liqueur & Prosecco Gift Box
Marks and Spencer are treating us to more than one flavour choice this year when it comes to their super popular gin snow globes.
This is a brand-new light-up spiced sugar plum snow globe gin liqueur, designed especially for the festive 2021 season, with edible silver leaf.
It has been perfectly paired with the limited-edition Christmas Conte Priuli Oro Prosecco, also presented in a beautiful matching gift box.
The choice is yours, however, you can enjoy this magnificent gin with the prosecco, or a tonic of your choice, or you can drink it neat.
Or, you may just choose to keep it as the collectable it has quickly become.
Snap up this online-exclusive set and light up their Christmas (or yours).
Shortbread Light-Up Houses, 230g
These shortbread houses complete M&S’s light-up range this Christmas.
The tins come in three colours; gold silver and orange, and are filled with all-butter Scottish shortbread.
Once you’ve polished off the biscuits the tins could also be used as an ideal festive ornament.
At the fantastic price of just £5 each, you could treat yourself to all three tin colours, and they would also make a fantastic stocking filler or Secret Santa gift.
Available online soon
Collection Christmas Pudding Truffles, 125g
Two of the best things about the festive season are being able to eat as much chocolate you like and indulging in the traditional Christmas pudding.
So, M&S have come up with the ingenious idea of combining them both - ideal for the times when we still want to taste something sweet but have to admit we’re just too full for actual Christmas pudding.
These decadent truffles have all the flavours you’d find in a traditional Christmas pudding in a bitesize portion.
M&S described the chocolatey treats as fruity, warming and a little boozy.
On sale soon

There’s a range of flavours to cater for everyone’s favourite tipple.
You can choose from pre-mixed margarita, espresso martini, passion star martini, clover club, golden negroni and aged rum and cacao old fashioned.
Currently only available in a case of all 6, for £108, they’ll soon be available for individual purchase

Love Caramilk? You’ll love the Golden Blond range from M&S, which captures the deliciously caramel, milky chocolate favour in a number of delicious guises.
