New Year’s Eve always sneaks up on me. Every. Single. Year.
Yes, I know it lands on the same day every year. And yes, I spend months preparing for Christmas, only a week before. But New Year’s Eve also lands one day after my wedding anniversary and two days after my birthday, so it’s never top of mind until it’s actually here. Each year I wake up in a panic realizing I have to hit the grocery store and fight the crowds to pick up last-minute entertaining items.
This year I’m making a vow to do something a little different. Instead of trying to come up with a creative appetizer to bring to the party (did I mention I hate being responsible for apps?) and shopping with every single other person on my neighbourhood, I’m going to buy Loblaw’s New Year’s Eve Entertaining Essentials Kit and be done with it. Basically it’s a charcuterie board-in-a-box designed just for New Year’s Eve and offered at select GTA store locations from December 27-31.
So instead of buying a hostess gift and making an app, this dreamy little box contains both—inside includes everything you need to create the ultimate charcuterie board, including meats, cheeses, crackers, dried fruit—and even the board itself!
And it’s already put together for you. And you don’t even have to enter the store. It’s available for same-day pick up through Loblaws Click & Collect. The box is $84.99 and is available at select GTA Loblaw locations.
