This will be my second Christmas gift related post this year and I’m not remotely sorry. If the person in your life is into their food then this is the blog post that you need to be able to buy them the gift of their dreams.
This is one of my favourite brands of chocolate to buy as a gift for someone else. They’re the sort of brand you don’t necessarily buy for yourself which is why I think they make such good gifts. If you want to try their range of hot chocolates then head to their cafe in Sloane Square (London) which I reviewed last year. The mini afternoon tea is also lovely if you need a pick me up.
It wouldn’t be a Christmas post from me if I didn’t mention both of the chocolate brands I buy as gifts. While I adore Prestat, Charbonnel et Walker offer some equally fabulous boxes of chocolates and when I visit London I will often go to both shops to buy some sweet treats. Don’t ask me to choose between the two as I’m not sure I could as they’re equally fantastic and I’m sure I’ll be shopping with both for many years to come.
Lakeland may not seem like it would be the first choice for food related gifts but you’d be wrong. The hampers are great quality and you can even have them sent on your behalf so no nasty trips to the post office in the middle of December. This is also the perfect store if cooking accessories are the gift of choice. My favourite knife is one of theirs and I’m not afraid to admit that I would be more than happy to find some more of their knife range in my stocking on Christmas morning.
I’ve been undecided on bread makers for a while but I’m slowly coming round to the idea as the thought of all the kneading makes my hands hurt. I know for a lot of people these wouldn’t be considered a gift but for ease of use and being able to have freshly baked bread makes me think these are a great idea.
This may not be the longest gift post but hopefully, it’s given you some thoughts and ideas on what you can buy for the foodie in your life.
What would you have included in this gift post?
