I Just Love It; Pizza Making Event

When it comes to buying presents, I have always searched high and low for the perfect gift. Particularly a lover of anything personalised, I'm always on the look out for new gift shops and websites.

With 1,000's of unique and personal gifts, I Just Love It (IJLI) is a one stop shop for all your gifting needs. Having been running since 2008, IJLI are pretty clued up on sourcing the perfect gifts to bring to their customers for every occasion that may arise. Just some of their gift categories include; Wine & Spirit, Kitchen & Dining, House & Home, Book Gifts, Sports Gifts, Newspaper Gifts, Office Gifts, Engraved Gifts and much more.

In the spirit of personalisation, I Just Love It took us on an Italian adventure, creating our own personalised authentic Italian pizza's at La Cucina Caldesi, 5 minutes walk from London's Bond Street.

On arrival, we had some time to mingle and grab a drink before getting the low down on how to make pizza from scratch, true Italian style - no ham and pineapple in sight! With a piece of dough each, it was then our turn to create the pizza base and cover it in toppings to finish off the masterpiece.

I'm not a big cheese or tomato fan so I used a minimal amount of those and instead covered my pizza with salami and a spicy Italian sausage - the perfect meat feast! By the time I was done, I was quite impressed with how round my pizza ended up being!

After struggling to get the pizza on to the giant spatula thing (I have no idea what it's called!) I just about managed it get it in the oven without tipping it upside down - shame the same can't be said for Jenny LOL ;-)

Sprinkled with some rocket and out of the oven, I have to say, I was massively impressed with my pizza and it tasted delicious!

After a few more drinks and time to eat our pizza's, we said our goodbyes and was gifted a goody bag full of wonderful personalised goodies.

This is by far the most perfect and generous goody bag I've ever been given from an event. My favourite item by far is the Cosmopolitan (cranberry and orange) scented candle, it smells absolutely AMAZING.
