If you’re looking for Christmas gifts for the foodies in your life, you’ve come to the right place. It’s easy to think that children can’t be foodies, but that’s not the case. My girls love food. Eating, cooking and watching anything to do with food. So, there are a few ideas here that are for adults only but there are also a few that would be great for little ones.
Little Cooks Co Subscription Box
My children love to cook but I really struggle to find the time to bake with them. The beauty of a subscription box is that it forces you to put some time aside when the box arrives and all cook together. Little Cooks Co is a monthly subscription-based recipe kit that fits through the letterbox. It comes in a recyclable box with compostable packaging. Packed with natural, healthy dry ingredients and an easy recipe to make with them, it’s ideal for budding little chefs. It makes an ideal Christmas gift that will bring joy to the recipient throughout the year, or you can buy a one-off box to open on Christmas day. To find out more and to order, visit the Little Cooks Co website.
A Kitchen Fairytale
This beautiful book is full of whole-food, plant based recipes that are made with no oil. It’s ideal for any foodies who are vegan or aiming to reduce their intake of animal products, fats and oils. As well as the recipes themselves, the author aims to engage with readers to explain why she has chosen these ingredients and how they are beneficial. Recipes include quinoa, apricot and pine nut salad, triple cinnamon porridge, mushroom and aubergine stroganoff, and chocolate brownies. Grab your copy from Hammersmith Books.
A Year in the Life of a Star Baker Family Organiser
There aren’t many shows that appeal to the whole family quite as much as The Great British Bake Off. Put this organiser on the wall so the whole family can write in their commitments. It’s a great way to make sure your schedules don’t clash. Better still, each month has a popular Bake Off recipe at the top of the page. There’s plenty of space for appointments and reminders and a sheet full of stickers. There’s even a storage pocket for your own recipes and notes. The calendar is available from Danilo.
Booja-Booja Award Winning Chocolate Truffle Selection
These chocolates are so good they’ve won awards. They’re also dairy free and incredibly tasty. The box contains 16 chocolate truffles in five different varieties. Flavours include Hazelnut Crunch and Almond Salted Caramel, both of which were winners at this year’s Great Taste Awards. If you’re not vegan or dairy free, I would strongly advise that you try these anyway. They’re some of the best chocolates I’ve tasted. And I’ve tasted a lot of chocolate. The Around Midnight Espresso is probably my favourite flavour. Ideally though, it’s best to try all the flavours so you might not want to share these. Find out more on the Booja Booja website and look out for them at Ocado and Holland and Barrett.
Say it with Champers Personalised Christmas Champagne
Champagne makes a lovely gift that will always be appreciated. This year though, you can make it even more special with a personalised label. Choose up to five lines of text to say Merry Christmas and write a message to your recipient. Choose between standard or premium champagne. The standard is full of character with light, fresh, citrus flavours. It has lively bubbles and a balanced, tangy finish due to extended ageing before release. The premium option is a blend of intense aromas and floral freshness that is full of character. Its scent of wild flowers with a peachy tone comes from the blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Grab it quick on the Say it with Champers website while the price is reduced.
Opies Christmas Fruits in Alcohol
If you have a foodie or a cocktail lover to buy for, Opies Christmas Fruits in Alcohol are ideal. They offer a selection of fruits in different alcohol. Mixed berries with Prosecco, Black Cherries with Kirsch, Apricots with Jim Beam, Baby Pears with Amaretto, Peaches with Courvoisier and Stem Ginger with Teachers. Traditionally, these are often eaten spooned generously over ice cream or with rich double cream. However, there are loads of options, particularly for anyone who is a dab hand in the kitchen. They make a great addition to cocktails too. For more information on each product, where to get them from and some recipe suggestions, head to the Opies website.
Maruko Black Cat 2-Tier Bento Box 520ml
This adorable little bento box is ideal for school packed lunches, especially if you want to pack something other than sandwiches for a change. It comes with a little fork inside the lid and a pretty, red elastic band to hold it together. The cat design is adorable enough to make anybody smile. Find this and other equally lovely boxes in the Sous Chef Bento Box collection.
Mini Truffle Gift Set
This mini truffle gift set is a foodies dream. A carnaroli and truffle risotto with dried mushrooms and vegetables makes a delicious meal. Black truffle oil is ideal for drizzling over a dish just before serving for a little extra luxury. Acacia honey infused with slivers of real truffle goes beautifully with blue cheeses and other rich, savoury dishes. The truffle and mushroom salsa is a rich blend of mushrooms with a hint of truffle. Delicious on crusty bread or stirred through pasta. Find this and a range of other truffle based gifts in the Sous Chef truffle collection.
