So, I have already posted my Bakers Christmas Gift Guide but I felt I was missing out of all the foodies in your family. So I decided to make another Christmas Gift Guide just for them.
This Christmas Gift Guide is packed full with some great food and drink gifts for your family this Christmas. All the products marked with an * have been gifted to me.
Oh, also these gifts are in no particular order.
Migrateful are a UK charity that supports refugees and asylum seekers by empowering them to run cookery classes for the general public.
There gift vouchers would be perfect for the foodie in your family. They would be able to enjoy a cuisine of their choice and maybe even try something they have never attempted before from Cuban to Syrian, Lebanese, Gambia and so many more.
The class normally run from 1-2 hours and is virtual. All participants will be sent confirmation along with a list of ingredients, quantities and equipment for the class. The chef taking the class will be able to answer any questions you have throughout the lesson.
If you aren’t sure what kind of food you would like clicking on the class on their website will also give you a list of the equipment and ingredients before you sign up.
This would be the perfect gift for me and any of your friends/family who are Vegan or just trying to limit their alcohol intake this Christmas. This sparkling chardonnay is perfect and utterly delicious, also no hangover!
Noughty has the most incredible flavour and it really does taste like chardonnay. Having tried lots of different alcohol free options this one is by far my favourite. It isn’t overly sweet compared to other alcohol free wines I have tried although it does have some sweetness and a hit of apple.
The Merchant Taylor Company is one of the great twelve livery companies and received their first Royal Charter in 1327.
This Christmas they have three hampers ranging in price from £54 to £165. All three hampers also have an eco-friendly version although these are slightly more expensive. The eco-friendly option comes in recyclable boxes instead of the traditional hamper.
These hampers would be perfect for the food or drink lover in your family, whether they have tried these before and enjoyed them or they are looking for some new food and drink to try this festive period.
My personal favourite of the three is the Homeward Bound Hamper. It is £85 and brimming with superb products including Taylor Made chutneys, jams, chocolates and pastries from the Merchant Taylor Kitchen. It also includes Graham’s Six Grape Reserve Port, Merchant Taylors blended Coffee Café Express Italian Coffee, olives and so much more.
The least expensive of the three is the Merry and Bright Hamper which includes preserves, chocolates and pastries. This includes a Rhubarb, Pear and Ginger Chutney, Taylor Made Chocolate Truffles, Home Made Mince Pies and so much more in a 14” hamper.
Finally, the most expensive of the three hampers is the Magic of Christmas Hamper. This hamper is filled with a luxiouruis range of fine champagne, wines and liquor as well as Taylor Made preserves, British delicacies and a homemade Christmas pudding that follows a centuries old recipe. This is the biggest of the three hampers and also includes Taylor Made Fig and Cognac Jam, Cranberry and Candied Orange Relish and a range of coffees.
If you follow me on social media you will know that hot chocolate is my absolute favourite and this is the perfect gift to the hot chocolate lover in your life.
This Hot Chocolate Kit has everything you need to make the most scrumptious hot chocolate. Just add milk and your favourite mug.
This gift contains a cute little tin filled with a vegan Dark Chocolate Brownie and 30g of luxe vegan dark chocolate buttons. Just add the buttons to your favourite mug, and pour over hot milk. Stir until it is all combined. If you want to make your hot chocolate extra why not cut up the brownie and add it to the top of your hot chocolate.
For the foodie who has everything, why not donate food to another family?
This year has been a hard year for everyone so I have decided that I will be donating money to Oxfam.
Oxfam has been getting food to families in need, by providing thousands of food baskets, as part of their response to the ongoing crisis, in countries such as Yemen.
Since fighting broke out in Yemen, clean water, food and fuel are hard to come by. Lakok’s home was destroyed in the conflict. She helps to look after her grandchildren and the food she receives means that, after all they have been through; the children at least have the comfort of a proper, filling meal.
There are so many options for gift cards that it doesn’t necessarily have to be about food. You could gift a super goat gift card which could provide training for farmers to help them grow more crops, raise more animals and earn more income.
This is the perfect gift for a chilli loving foodie. Orriss & Son’s are a small batch sauce producer. Orriss and Son have three different flavoured chilli sauces. The hottest of which is Even Flow. This is based on fiery and fruity habanero plus red and smoked chillies, tomato and apple juices.
Next up is My Wave made from fresh and dried chillies, combined with red peppers, tomatoes and cider vinegar along with the traditional lemon, bay and garlic. This takes inspiration from peri-peri seasoning. Hello, delicious!
The third and more gentle of the three flavours is Fresh Tendrils which is a jalapeno nettle sauce. It is made from the subtle heat of fresh green jalapenos, green peppers, apple juice, earthy nettles and mint.
The bottles are £7.25 each for a 200ml glass bottle. Which one would you choose? I think for me it would definitely be either My Wave or Fresh Tendrils.
PostCake is the perfect gift to get your family and friends whether they live nearby or on the opposite side of the country. First off chose your card design from either designs on the website or you can upload your own photo. Next, choose the perfect flavour, vanilla, chocolate or if you are feeling festive why not try the gingerbread or chocolate orange options.
All cakes have a vegan, dairy and gluten-free option and I can confirm they are delicious!
There are so many incredible designs that you can choose from and they don’t just need to be for Christmas. These cakes are utterly delicious and it is so lovely to receive one in the post. You don’t even need to worry about delivery as all are delivered contactlessley as they are all letterbox sized
I am so excited to buy some of these for family and friends. Not just for Christmas but for birthdays and other special occasions. Especially for family and friends that don’t live nearby so dropping a cake off for a special occasion wouldn’t be an option instead I can post one!
Honeybuns is a company I have only recently found but I absolutely love them! This Cook Book Bundle contains two gluten free and vegetarian cook books.
The first of the two books is Honeybuns All Day Cook Book. This book reminds me of my first ever cook book when I was younger. The cover is so pretty and it is jam packed with lots of amazing recipes. From Cheddar, Tomato and Red Onion Tartlets to Extra Lemony Cakelets, scrummy lasagnas to teatime treats.
The second recipe book in this bundle is Honeybuns Gluten-Free Baking. This book is perfect whether you trying to eat less gluten in 2021 or you are looking for some new delicious recipes. From scrumdiddlyumptious cookies to sticky toffee-apple shortbread, banana cake to lemon drizzle cake.
This cookbook bundle is the perfect gift for someone just starting out in the kitchen and are looking for easy and delicious recipes or for a more advanced baker who is looking to try some new gluten-free recipes.
I hope this Food and Drink Christmas Gift Guide has given you some inspiration on what to buy your family and friends for Christmas. If you have any questions regarding this Christmas Gift Guide or any other post on my blog please contact me. You can contact me either on social media or by email.
