For me, Christmas is all about the food. I don’t really care about presents as long as the Christmas dinner is the best meal I eat all year. I do however love receiving gifts that are based around food and there are usually a couple of different hot sauces, coffee beans or dark chocolate gifts under my tree from a variety of friends who know me well. This Foodies gift guide is for those people who love getting creative in the kitchen or who just love their food in general.
If you are looking for a gift for someone who loves cooking and enjoys eating sweet stuff then you really can’t go wrong with one of the Fudge Kitchen make your own fudge kits. They come in a variety of sets including this special Christmas-themed Jingle Fudge kit. With everything you need (apart from cream) to make three different types of Christmas fudge you may even get to try some too!
If you know someone who loves their chocolate but who is also quite open to experimenting with their food then the Cocoa Hernando range would be perfect. These chocolate disks with masala chai in them were certainly interesting to the palette and made me inquisitive for the rest of the range.
Another foodies gift for someone to get creative in the kitchen this Speculaas spice mix and moulds would allow the baker to create some traditional spiced biscuits. The Speculaas spice website had a variety of gifting options as well as details of the recipes you can use.
Handcrafted marshmallows have become quite popular this year and Baru have created some beautiful ones. Handcrafted in Belgium using all natural ingredients these strawberry and cacao marshmallows would make a great foodies gift.
I have seen a lot of fancy biscuit tins this year and I absolutely love this snow globe inspired tin from McVities filled with shortbread. It is the sort of tin you want to keep and use throughout the year.
If you are buying for a foodie on a diet then you could always look at some of the Mad Beauty Kelloggs based range with some lovely lip balms, soaps and more in retro styles that look and smell amazing.
