Saying Thanks With A Little Help From Cadbury

First of all, can we all just take a moment to be amazed at the fact I got to work with my all time favourite, Cadbury. Died. And. Gone. To Heaven.
Cadbury(The worlds greatest chocolate company) got in touch last week and presented me with a wonderful opportunity. As I had just graduated they offered me the chance to pick a gift from their Graduation Gift section on Cadbury Gift Direct and send it to whoever I felt had supported me the most at University. Obviously without a second thought I chose myself...JUST KIDDING...I chose my increcible parents. 
I have used Cadbury Gift Direct a couple of times before and I love how they have a gift for every occasion and how it's something so sweet and special. I chose the Champagne and 600g Milk Tray hamper for my parents. It included a bottle of Moet & Chandon Champagne and a maHOOsive Cadbury Milk Tray. As you can see in the photo above, the chocolate tray is so big it makes the champagne bottle look small! 


I chose to give my parents this gift as for me it is a starter gift for the many many many I hope to give them for the rest of my graduate life. I wouldn't have gone to university if it wasn't for them. They have supported me throughout my entire education and I couldn't thank them enough. I found it was my mum and dad that pushed me through high school and by the time it got to my A Levels I was doing all the pushing as I wanted to make them proud. When I found out I got into one of the UK's greatest universities I knew my parents couldn't be prouder. And I know with each year that I completed in my degree they grew prouder and prouder. Not just in my academic performance but my transformation into an independent and driven young girl (I was going to say woman but I just don't feel mature enough for that title yet ;D)

One of my favourite university memories was the day I found out I got a first in my dissertation which confirmed my overall 2.1 for my degree. My first thought was 'I can't WAIT to tell my parents' as I knew the news would make them so so so happy. 

I find universirty makes you realise how much you have taken your parents for granted your entire life. From the simple things like mums cooking to the experiences you have been given. I noticed a lot in the things I did at university spiraled out of me because of my parents. My passion for cooking a good meal came from my parents tasty Sunday roasts, my flair for pursuing popular culture and the study of music culture came from my parents love for classic 80s rock and roll and my drive to try all things new and to work hard came from my dad working so hard all of his life to give us the best experiences in life.

Since leaving university I have been looking for the perfect way to thank them. I want to show them how much I appreciate all the support they gave me. From paying for my rent to driving up and down the country every term to bring me/take me home, for all the things they bought me support me at university to being on the other end of the phone whenever I needed to hear a friendly family voice. There is no way I can think of repaying them. No way at all. This Cadbury gift, as I have already said, is a perfect starter gift for many more to come. They were so happy with it and as it is their 25th Anniversary next week, the champagne has come in good timing. I will let you in on a secret, yes my career goals are to make it big and to be successful but also to be able to buy my dad an Aston Martin with a Mulberry handbag on the passenger seat for my mum. Seriously, major career goal there. But don't tell them!!! 

So thank you to Cadbury for presenting me with this wonderful opportunity to show appreciation to my incredible parents and I want to dedicate this post to my parents for giving me the best life. 



Okay soppy post over now, you may continue with your day
