10 Christmas food gifts:
As food lovers, we love nothing more than to receive a food related gift at Christmas. There are many Christmas food gifts available. Here, some ideas for quality, interesting foodie gifts to please the gourmet enthusiasts in your life.
Spice it up:
Curry fans will appreciate this luxury Spice Tin from Spice Pots. The tin contains 5 ready blended curry spice pots, a beautiful candle and a recipe book too. The tins are generously filled and make a really delicious curry. Minimal waste too as you are able to buy refills for your pots. A great gift idea. The luxury gift set costs £34.95 with free delivery. *
A top tipple:
A bottle of a really good spirit makes a great gift. For vodka fans, the Isle of Wight Distillery’s Mermaid Salt Vodka is a quality choice. Crisp and fresh with just a hint of sea salt and delicious in cocktails too. £37.75. *
Gin lovers will enjoy this Christmas inspired Bobby’s Gin which is infused with cinnamon and cloves. Serve with an orange slice for that full festive feel. £35.95. More ideas for delicious gin producers here.
Cocktail lovers will enjoy these sweet little cocktail pouches of their favourite flavours by London based Ladies and Gents Cocktail bar. Minimal packaging, fun and convenient.
A subscription is a gift that lasts way beyond the festive season. For the health conscious, how about a smoothie subscription? There are also many Chocolate, gin or beer subscriptions available from many wonderful, family run businesses.
Cheese at Christmas is such a treat so a delicious chutney partners perfectly. These condiments from Rubies in the Rubble are packed with delicious ingredients that would otherwise have been wasted because they’re the wrong shape or size. The gift with a conscience. Prices vary depending on gift. *
These sweet and savoury preserves by Opies are a classic Christmas present for lovers of good food and drink but with a contemporary twist. Enjoy red berries infused with pink gin, figs in dark rum, and apricots steeped in Famous Grouse Scotch whiskey. The recipe book included in the gift set is full of great ideas too. Prices vary depending on gift. *
Coffee with a conscience:
Coffee connoisseurs will love these eco friendly and hand roasted coffee pods by The Lost Sheep Coffee. They are Nespresso compatible without the plastic and waste. Importantly, the coffee is delicious. From £3.95 *
Who doesn’t love Chocolate?
Chocolate is always a safe and very welcomed gift in our house. We love trying new, small businesses and their handmade chocolates and food gifts. A collection of our favourite chocolate food gifts can be found here. Consider an eco-friendly option for the run up to Christmas with one of these plastic free advent calendars.
For those who love chocolate but want an alternative to the real thing, how about a healthy and relaxing cacao tea? The relax tea from Aduna is a delicious infusion of cacao, cinnamon and cardamom. Sit back, enjoy and feel righteous!
Top of my list of Christmas food gifts is a new recipe book. As a huge vegetable fan, I love diving into a new veggie recipe book and finding new recipes to try. Here are our favourite vegetarian and vegan cookbooks. Prices vary.
We love a kitchen gadget! How about an oil mister? At £12.99, this great quality gadget is practical and health conscious as it helps your cook use less fat. Oils can also be flavoured within the mister for dressings. More gifts for foodies ideas here for varying budgets.
Using alternatives to cling film and disposable types of food wrap is so important in the quest to reduce plastic. Reusable Beebagz offer a sustainable storage alternative at just £14.99 for a snack pack (which contains two bags). Plastic free, silicone, reusable storage bags by Stasher are also excellent for storing food, freezing and cooking. Priced at £9.99 for a snack bag.
