Christmas Gifts for Food Lovers
Trying to keep the discerning food-lover in your life satisfied can be a tough task, especially when it comes to buying presents. But don’t let their taste for the finer things in life put you off treating them to something special once in a while, there are plenty of tasty treats, gift ideas and experience days available that are sure to earn a five star review from even the fussiest of foodies.
Food and drink hampers
The perfect gift if you can’t decide on just one tasty treat. Food and drink hampers look great and taste even better. You can make your own and fill it with all their favorite cheeses, chutneys, oils, beers or wines. Or if you want to make things easier, order a ready-made gourmet hamper online and have it delivered direct to the lucky recipient’ door.
You don’t have to worry about offending them, cookery classes aren’t a way of suggesting you don’t like their cooking. Even the most experienced of home chefs will be able to learn plenty of new skills, with a range of master classes available at restaurants and hotels around the country, whether they want to learn how to make sumptuous sushi, cook the perfect curry or tackle traditional British classics, expert chefs are on hand to teach a range of skills for a variety of dishes.
Perfect for those who hoard recipe cards, tear out pages of the Sunday magazines or scribble down ingredients from television cookery shows. A stylish filing box or recipe folder makes a neat and eye-catching addition to the kitchen and means they will never have to lose a recipe again.
Personalized oil and vinegar bottles
While not every budding chef will get their own brand of ingredients out on supermarket shelves, you can ensure the food-lover in your life will get some bottles bearing his or her name to use in their own kitchen. Bespoke oils and vinegars make great gifts in themselves, but add an extra personalized touch and get them engraved with a special message. The long shelf life of oils and vinegars make them perfect to give as gifts and personalized bottles are refillable for a gift that will adorn the kitchen for years to come.
If they’re a whizz in the kitchen, then give them the perfect opportunity to boost their knowledge of the best wines to complement their gorgeous home cooking. Wine tasting evenings are great fun, however much knowledge you take away at the end of it. Wine buffs will love the chance to sample some top quality tipples and tuck into some fine food, while novices will pick up some top tips for how to choose their wines to match their future meals.
