Christmas is the best time of year, with treats galore. Throughout the festive season, I love to bake, indulge in plenty of festive favourites and of course, buying presents for others. With only a few weeks until the big day, I thought I’d share some of the lovely gifts to buy the foodies in your life. You may have seen my beauty gift guide previously, and next up is the weird and wonderful gift guide. If you have someone tricky in your life to buy for, you’ll want to check that out.
Chocolate Sewing Kit
This wonderful gift was handmade by the lovely people at Choc on Choc, which you can purchase from Yumbles. With handmade chocolate which almost looks too good to eat, it’s a great present for those who love sewing, or something a little different. With the kit supplying scissors, a ruler, pencil, 3 spools of thread and some needles. The fact that the items actually look realistic adds to the amazingness of the gift.
Introducing the fantastic Christmas blend from Perky Blenders, owned by Victoria and sourced from Peru and Nicaragua. With the sweet taste of candied fruits, nutmeg and eucalyptus, this blend is on to a winner. The packaging is 100% recyclable and looks luxurious. For £7.50, you can grab a bag of their beans or already pressed.
A fantastic present for any budding chefs or those who love to cook. With each week featuring a new recipe to try and plenty of space to plan your week, all bound together. Cook’s Diary also comes with stickers and there are 3 gorgeous colours to choose from. The price of the diary is £9.99 which is reasonable and makes the perfect gift. For other great cookery books, check out The Works.
If you or the person you’re buying a gift for love cocktails, gin and all things alcohol this is the ideal gift. The Tipple Box, who are a monthly subscription box providing all the things you need to make a perfect cocktail at home. Cool right? If you’re looking to grab a one-off gift, they also offer plenty of choices. With a yard of gin, gin and tonic set and a gin tasting set being some of their popular gifts. Featured is the gin and tonic gift set which comes in at £25.95.

Make your own Ramen
Sous Chef provides a number of gifts in order to suit everyone. Featuring different cuisines from around the world, you can cook up a storm in your own kitchen. With Mexican, Indian, Italian, Japanese and more on the menu, you’re spoilt for choice. If you’re looking for an authentic gift from a certain country, why not grab one of the Sous Chef ingredient sets. The Ramen set pictured, is absolutely amazing for creating homemade ramen. Featuring 4 vegetarian/vegan recipes and ready to be made using the ingredients in the packet. To find out more about what Ramen is or how to create it, head on over to Sous Chef.
Also from Sous Chef are adorable Bento Boxes which comes in different colours, sizes and patterns. Whether you’re looking to get a traditional Bento Box or something a bit different, Sous Chef has plenty of choices. It’s multifunctional too and it can be used as a whole food kit! The top of the head is a bowl, the face and lower half of the body is another food container. I really love how it separates all into these different pieces, and it totally took me by surprise at first glance. My favourite Bento Box is the pink Geisha one or the red house one. Both have a super cool feel to them and they’re a great addition to the kit.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this gift guide and if you’re looking for any further recommendations, my other gift guides will be around soon.
