Foodies Christmas Gift Guide 2020

One of my favourite things about Christmas is the food! Come on, who wouldn't agree? When else can we eat chocolate every single day of the month (advent calendars), and scoff our faces in tubs of Christmas chocolates without feeling guilty? Let's not forget the turkey and all the trimmings on the big day too - yum!

Disclaimer: All of these featured items have been gifted to me in return for coverage in this post, however, all thoughts and opinions are my own and I have not received any payment in return for any products featured.

Food gifting is one of my favourite things to gift, because everyone loves food in some kind of way - you can't go wrong! Whether it's treating your other half to a favourite of their bottle of wine, buying your uncle a cookbook so he can finally master the art of cooking, or spoiling your best mate to a hamper full of their favourite sweeties and chocolate. Whilst food gifting options are endless (I had to decline so many offers for this guide, as I'll be here forever!), I hope you enjoy the 'foodie' related gift items I've put together below.

Selection Box

The HARIBO Selection Box is a stocking filler with a difference! Containing tasty gums and jellies, this sweet Christmas surprise includes eight mini bags of HARIBO favourites including Starmix, Tangfastics, Supermix and Giant Strawbs Gone Mini. Available from most leading supermarkets, it's an ideal gift for any foodie no matter if it's for a child or adult because 'kids and grown-ups love it so – the happy world of HARIBO'.

The Vegan Table

This vegan recipe book features 200 recipes for every occasion - making this the ideal vegan cookbook whether the person your buying for cooks for themselves or a whole dinner party. Written by 
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau - an award-winning author of seven books, the giftee of this recipe book will be spoilt with choices on what dishes to make. With recipes including Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples & Onions, African Sweet Potato & Peanut Stew and Flourless Chocolate Tart - this will even be a winner with non-vegans who want to reduce their meat intake!

Vegan Chocolate Lover Hamper

Who doesn't love opening a hamper full of yummy deliciousness? This Planet Organic Vegan Chocolate Hamper is packed full with all the best Planet Organic chocolate snacks to satisfy all of your giftee's snacking needs. This hamper is an ideal present for a chocolate lover, containing 12 chocolate flavoured products: Macaroons, Granola, Chocolate Covered Raisins and Almonds, a Cookie, Chocolate Cups, Truffles and Three Various Bars. All 12 products are gluten-free, vegan, refined sugar-free & organic, and comes beautifully presented in a reusable box.

Oven Glove with Kente print

If you are stumped for edible gift ideas for a foodie lover this Christmas, what about gifting them an oven glove instead? This Kente print oven glove comes in a choice of two colours (charcoal or pebble) and will help your giftee from any burns whilst they make their delicious food. Culture Club was created to make speciality lifestyle products that reflect African and Caribbean culture whilst making it accessible. Each item comes with a recipe card - with the current recipe card being Caribbean Spice Cake, and each product arrives gift wrapped in tissue paper, accompanied with a tag - saving the buyer prepping time - a winner all round for the buyer and the giftee!

Mini Vanilla Cupcakes, Chocolate Fudge Cakes, Mince Pies & Victoria Sponge Cakes.

Do you know a foodie who loves cake, but who can't bake, even if they follow the recipe down to the T? Whilst a recipe book may not be a good idea for your recipient, let me tell you - these OGGS cakes will certainly warm their heart and tummy and there's NO baking involved! OGGS cake range contains no animal products and are made using a vegan recipe so they are perfect for those who are dairy-free or vegan! Sold in Sainsbury's, Asda and Waitrose - they are easily accessible and would be great as a stocking filler, or bunched together to make a cake hamper.

Peaky Blinders Cocktail Book

If cocktails are your giftee's kind of drink, then this book will have them making delicious cocktails inspired by the world of Peaky Blinders! Birmingham Sour, Derby, Mrs Changretta, White Horse and Easy Dizzy are just a few cocktail ideas found in this officially licensed book, which includes 40 easy-to-make cocktail recipes made from whiskey, gin and other tipples so your recipient can sip like a member of the Shelby clan whilst watching their favourite series from the comfort of their own home.

Cider Gift Set

Cranes produce a range of refreshingly natural ciders that come in three tantalising flavours: Blueberries & Apples, Cranberries & Limes and Raspberries & Pomegranates. Cranes Ciders contain 30% fewer calories than brand leaders as they only use the natural sweetness of the superfruits, which also makes their ciders gluten-free and suitable for vegans. This gift set contains the three ciders mentioned above along with a Cranes branded and decorative pint glass, making it the perfect alcoholic gift for any cider fan this Christmas.
