You know scented candles and socks won’t cut it as gifts for a foodie, but what can you buy that one person who loves to indulge in gastronomical delights? If you’re at a loss, not to worry. We’ve put together this handy list of Christmas gifts for foodies so you can cross another name off your list with ease!
1. The Collection Berrington Christmas Hamper with Prosecco
£150 from www.marksandspencer.com
This generously filled hamper has cracking reviews for a reason. It’s bursting with treats from the pantry like chutney, jam and marmalade, three boxes of biscuits and two chocolate assortments from M&S’ The Collection range. There’s also a 6-month matured Christmas cake and intensely fruity pudding. With a bottle of Casa di Amello Prosecco and one of La Vita Sangiovese also included, this is something truly special.
2. BBC Good Food magazine subscription
£39.00 (12 issues) from www.buysubscriptions.com
Packed with recipes ranging from simple to sophisticated, this is the perfect gift for those who like to cook fresh food at home. In every issue, the BBC’s team of expert chefs and contributors bring more new recipes than any other food magazine in Britain. The magazine has easy weekday meals for when you’re feeling a bit lethargic, challenging cookery projects, healthy recipes and some luxuriant treats.
3. 4.5 litre Salter Digital Hot Air Fryer
£70.06 from Amazon
If you really want to change your friend’s cooking forever, buy them an air fryer. It’s healthier because it drains the fat off and cooks with very hot air, so you don’t use oil. It also cooks everything faster than an oven and the cooking possibilities are endless. It’s easy to clean, doesn’t take up too much room and it’s very low-faff. We’re speaking from experience.
4. 2 piece cooking utensils sets
£21 from Amazon
I have this set in pink and the spaghetti server will change your life. The silicone set is available in sage green, baby pink or black. It has everything you need for whatever you’re whipping up in the kitchen.
5. Le Creuset signature cast iron round casserole dish
£99 – 185 from Le Creuset
As gifts for foodies go this would probably be the one that would please them all! A beautiful piece of cookware for a beautiful kitchen. This is a brand that does not shy away from colour or quality. Take a look at the full range. Literally anything from this high end brand would raise a smile from the food lover in your life.
6. The Echo Show 10-inch screen
£220 from Amazon
Many people already have an Amazon echo or smart device in their homes and technology is becoming an everyday part of our lives. With an Echo show you can see recipes as well as hear ingredients being read out, which is great for people who are used to working from traditional cook books.
