Top Christmas Gift Ideas for Food Enthusiasts
The festive season is perhaps the most wonderful time of year, especially if you’re a serious foodie like me! If you have friends and relatives who are also foodies and you are at a loss as to what to buy them for Christmas this year read on for some great food related gift inspiration.
The Gift for the Foodie Who Likes To Receive
There are two types of food lovers in this world: the type that isn’t interested in the cooking side but just likes to indulge in fine dining and then there’s the home cook who fancies themselves as the next Nigella or Jamie. If the person you are shopping for this Christmas is the type of foodie who just likes to receive delicious treats then companies such as Clearwater offer beautiful Christmas hampers packed with delicious treats designed to make the most critical of food critic’s mouths water.
Edible Gifts on a Shoe String BudgetChristmas can take its toll on your wallet, especially if you have a lot of people to buy for. A great way to save some money and give people great presents is by making them edible gifts! These Christmas truffles by Nigella look beautiful and are super easy to make. However if the person you are making a gift for has more of a savoury tooth then Christmas chutneys make a great present too.
Gifts to Help Fill the Bottom Draw
It’s amazing what kitchen utensils you take for granted when you live at home so don’t be surprised if you have any relatives or friends who, like me, have just flown the nest and ask for what you may consider slightly strange kitchen items such as cheese graters and rolling pins for Christmas!
Having recently moved into my first proper apartment myself, the one thing I found I missed the most (and this may sound crazy) was a really good wok! I know that sounds strange but great woks go far as they are so versatile which is perfect for new home owners like me. You can buy woks online from companies such as Pro Cook and if you get a good one it will last for years.
Spoilt for Choice
If before reading this article you were stuck for what to buy your nearest and dearest for Christmas this year hopefully now you will have some ideas. Also, don’t be afraid of buying kitchen essentials as Christmas presents as if your friends are anything like me they will be over the moon with anything that helps bulk out their kitchen cupboards!
Have you got any great recipes you can share that would make great Christmas presents or any kitchen essentials that you can’t live without that would make a great gift? We’d love to hear from you if you have!
