With the keepsake cookie cutter it enables you to make some non-alcoholic cookies too - either divide the mixture evenly before adding the gin to one half only, or simply make a new batch of cookie dough and don't add the gin.

But make sure you clearly mark which is alcoholic and which isn't or there will be trouble.

Making your own sweet treats is not only more thoughtful, but also shows that you have put time and effort into making the perfect gift for someone you love.

The metal cookie cutter enables you to make them time and time again - and experiment with other festive flavours.

Or if you'd prefer to keep the cookie mix in the tin and give it as an unbaked gift to someone who you think is better at baking then make sure you pop round over the festive period to taste the baked good gift.

After all, we've all got that one friend who can cook like like Mary Berry...
