Do you need to buy a gift for a foodie? Then there is nothing better than a food or drink related gift. But, you want this to be something luxurious that they will really enjoy.
Here’s some ideas to give you food for thought:
Fortnum and Mason hamper
There is no gift more luxurious for a foodie than an iconic Fortnum and Mason Hamper. Not only does the recipient get the wicker basket to keep and fill with whatever they please, they’ll also receive all the goodies that are inside, such as bottles of wine, olives, cheese, crackers, meats and much more. There are hampers for all occasions including those specifically designed for Christmas.
If you don’t have the budget for the hamper, don’t worry there are other options, so you can still give the luxury of F&M without breaking the bank.
Unique bottle of drink
Choose their favourite drink and then look for it in a fancy bottle or with a twist. Let’s say they love gin – which is very popular at the moment. M&S are selling an elderflower flavoured glitter globe gin with 23 carat gold leaf – perfect for the festive season. Alternatively, look for a pretty bottle – From the Gin Shelf named Mermaid Gin within the top 5 of the 26 most beautiful gin bottles. These are bottles they won’t want to throw out after they’ve enjoyed what is inside.
From coffee and cocktails to brownies and bread – there are so many food subscriptions to choose from that you are sure to find one that is perfect for the foodie in your life. Choose their favourite and then it’ll land on their doorstep every month for the duration that you decide on. This might be something they can tuck straight into or ingredients to use in the kitchen. Either way, it’s the gift that will keep on giving.
Give your foodie something to look forward to – from champagne afternoon tea at Harrods, a meal cooked by a celebrity chef or dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant. There are a number of different experiences that are perfect for food lovers. Choose one and it’s something the two of you can look forward to doing together.
Foodies no doubt have shelves full of cookbooks from Nigella Lawson to Mary Berry. But, you can never have too many – so, why not add another one to their collection. Are they always booking a table at Dishoom – then why not get them the restaurant’s very own cookbook? Maybe they want to start cooking more vegetarian dishes? Then Mob Veggie has some great dishes. Make it relevant to their food preferences at the moment and they are sure to love it.
Personalised kitchen accessories
Aprons, chopping boards, pie dishes, yorkshire pudding tins – you name it, you can personalise it. These will all be a great addition to their kitchen but if there is something they really need or are particularly into, then this will be ideal.
Did any of those tickle your tastebuds? Now you just need to choose which one is best for the foodie in your life.
