  • Thanks for sharing this is a great idea.
    For thousands of people this Christmas, their must-have gift is far more vital than the latest gadget or toy – it’s blood. Please don’t let the festivities and cold weather prevent you from giving them the ultimate gift… give blood.

    If anyone's interested there is a whole thread about reindeer food here. There are also threads in that forum about Snowman soup, flannel reindeers, reindeer poop etc! x

  • The only "christmas reindeer food" that I have seen to buy is rasing money for charity, I don't mind, giving £1 to charity especially if it means I don't have to have oats and glitter all over the kitchen!!
