10 Warm-hearted Ways to give back {Father's Day}

Father's Day (16 June) is a very special day on my calendar! Being a little Daddy's girl, this is a day that I really get to spoil my Dad for all the wonderful ways in which he supports, treats and inspires us children throughout the year! This year I got really inspired by Pick n Pay's Winter Hot Lists! And some of the great gift ideas that they have in store!

I have great memories of my Dad and I doing grocery shopping together, particularly those where I would secretly slip in a few packets of sweets or chocolates while he was busy selecting the right and best cut meat or unpacking the trolley. I decided to make my own Winter Hotlist, not for myself, but for my Dad, putting together his all time favourites. This is a definite recipe for success! {See Easy-to-find Pick n Pay Shopping List below}

I also decided to make my #10 a recipe I know will immediately warm up the winter cold and most definitely any Father's heart: A Warm Dark Chocolate Island Pudding! {See recipe below}

Let the Winter Hotlist count-up begin!
#1: If he can't go a day without a chocolate bar or slab, the Lindt Milk Chocolate is the one to grab!
#2: But after a 'little' something sweet, he'd definitely need a salty treat! 
#3: Spoil him with a Nivea for Men, to relax the hardworking hands and feet,
#4: Throw in some comfy slippers as an extra pamper treat.
#5: While you're making 'potjiekos' give him Nederburg Baronne in a glass
#6: or a warm cup of milo in his favourite cup with class!
#7: You put on The Book of Eli DVD
#8: Give that man a Bell's, as you snuck into the kitchen to make...ssshhh, it's a secret you see.
#9: You hand him his favourite Pick n Pay blanket just to cover the knees,
#10: then you serve his favourite Chocolate Island Pudding, without a doubt, YES PLEASE!
