As a self professed ‘foodie’, I use Christmas as an excuse to indulge in even more food and drink than I usually would and I know I’m not the only one! For me, Christmas isn’t made until I unwrap a Terry’s Chocolate Orange and a box of Lint Orange Chocolate Truffles, yum!
From traditional food gifts to festive new concepts, heres a round up of the best gifts for the foodie in your life.
You can’t go wrong with a traditional Christmas Hamper. Grocery doorstep delivery company milk&more bring the food side of Christmas to you, their website hosts a whole section for gifts and you can get your weekly shop while you’re there! How easy is that?! The gift tab features a a great selection of hampers, as well as smaller, individual Christmas gifts. They were kind enough to send me some samples from their Cartwright & Butler hampers; Rhubarb and Custard Sweeties, Butter Fudge, and Milk Chocolate Chunk Biscuits, not only were they presented in the most gorgeous traditional packaging, but I can assure you they all tasted great too!
Speculaas biscuits contain lots of sweet tasting spices like cinnamon, ginger and cloves- how Christmassy does that sound! I’ve always wanted to visit the traditional German Christmas markets, and this baking kit definitely gives me those vibes. Steven, the Speculaas Spice Master Chef, was kind enough to send me a Spice and Small Windmill Mold pack and I had so much fun making the biscuits with the wooden mold, it was such a Christmassy thing to do and really got me in the festive spirit. This would definitely be the perfect gift for anyone into baking or experiencing different cultures. Plus, bonus points for not gifting someone with their 20th box of chocolates, this is definitely much more original!
The perfect surprise gift! Baker Days offer a huge range of Christmas cake designs and also offer personalised options! I’ve been to Disney World twice over Christmas and tend to miss it during this season (weird I know). So I sent them a photo I took while there a few years ago, of Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh in a Christmas hat! They were able to put it on a cake for me and I was so happy with the results!
I haven’t even got to the best bit! Baker Days offer something called a ‘letterbox cake’ which is a cake small enough to fit through the letterbox. Imagine how happy you could make a loved one who lives quite far away when they get home to a surprise Christmas cake! If I’m honest I was worried about the cake breaking or being affected by dropping to the floor once posted though the letterbox, but I was presently surprised. It arrived in immaculate condition and it tasted amazing (I chose vanilla).
Everyone loves indulging in chocolate at Christmas, and these luxury truffles from Beech’s are the perfect gift! With a variety of flavours; Prosecco, Pink Champagne, Marc de Champagne, and Salted Caramel, there’s something for just about anyone. These would be perfect for
eating yourself stocking fillers, Secret Santa style gifts (a safe bet), or even to pop into a hamper if you’re looking at putting one together yourself! The packaging is absolutely gorgeous and lets be honest it looks much more thoughtful than yet another tin of Roses. You really can tell they’re luxury and they’re really really yummy.
I hope that this has given you some good gift ideas! Please let me know in the comments if you have any other recommendations for foodie themed gifts!
