Wondering what to buy for the foodies in your life? Well you have come to the right place!! Here is my Christmas gift guide for foodies
These little pots could be an absolute game changer for anyone who loves making curry at home. The pots contain the perfect spice blends for different curries, so you dont need to worry about having individual herbs and spices, meaning you can rustle up a curry in no time. Once the pots are finished you can even order refills. The kit above comes with a recipe book featuring 150 recipes, and sells for under £20.
I have long been a huge fan of Red Letter Days and I love that you can now buy these kits in shops, ready for you to gift on. There are a whole variety available, not just for foodies. If you want to have a rummage on the website there are LOTS of fantastic deals at the moment, with up to 50% off many experiences and vouchers are valid for up to 20 months. A great idea if you just don’t know what to buy someone, and prices start from £12.
We were sent this to review, and I wrote about it last month. We havent had a chance to use it too much yet because, well because it has been either raining or freezing cold! I think if you have somebody in your family though who is a true foodie, and how loves to play around with flavours this would be a great idea. Not only is it a portable barbecue but it’s a smoker, so you can experiment with smoking your own cheese, nuts, fish and meats too. Retails for around £60
If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen me sharing this a few weeks ago. There is always one on my wall behind my desk because not only does it brighten it up but it also makes me smile when I see what day it is. Did you know there is a blackcurrant day, and that April 11th is World Cheese Fondue Day? No? Well you need a calendar then! £15 for the A2 size from My Lego Man’s website.
Jackpot Peanut Butter
I am sorry but you are never too old for something to have your name printed on it so when Jackpot Peanut Butter got in touch and asked if I would like a personalised jar of peanut butter, I replied straight away. This isnt just a gimmick though, this peanut is made from American peanuts, pretty much nothing else and doesnt contain palm oil. I love their back story and the fact every jar has a quote from a film on the label. NB some of the labels do have a very sweary word on them so if you are ordering make sure you get the right one! Sells for £5-£7.
By far our favourite praline chocolates and there is generally a box of these in our table snacks basket in the living room. This year Guylian recognised very early on that this Christmas might be slight different and have gone out of their way to ensure we can still celebrate with their fabulous chocolates. Chocolate bars and their famous Guylian Sea Shells are available in supermarkets from £5 for a 250g box. They are stocked by Ocado, and if you want to send presents to loved ones you can buy them on Moonpig too. Buy from their site though and there is a Black Friday event that gives you a free box with qualifying purchases!
There can’t be many car journeys that aren’t undertaken with a decent supply of Haribo to hand, so anybody getting this selection box this year would be thrilled I am sure.
It is easy to forget that some friends and family have allergies and intolerances so I try and make a mental note to remember them when I am catering for a party and make sure we have both gluten free and vegan foods on offer. This year there aren’t any parties going on but I know a few people who are doing hampers for family members as gifts. These would be an ideal item for a vegan hamper, at just £2.50 for a pack of four you can buy them in most supermarkets.
