Christmas Gift Ideas for Foodies

Foodie gifts are some of my favourite gifts to both give and receive. I love both compiling a hamper of food related treats or picking up the perfect foodie gift set that I know will bring a smile to the receivers face.

Christmas Gift Ideas for Foodies raw chocolate gift set

The chocolate gift making set from Indigo Herbs includes everything that you need to make 20-25 natural and pure small chocolates. Foodies will love making their own beautiful creations with this kit and will appreciate the delicious taste of the raw chocolate.

The Indigo chocolate making kit gift set is available here for £19.99.

Christmas Gift Ideas for Foodies chocolate cookbook

Another one for the chocolate lovers who want to eat chocolate without all the guilt, The Ultimate Chocolate Cookbook is a sugar free cookbook with recipes for delicious treats for any occasion, from special breakfasts to show-stopping sugar-free cakes and bakes.

The Ultimate Chocolate Cookbook is available here for £8.94.

If you would prefer to go down the DIY hamper route, these would make the perfect additions.

Christmas Gift Ideas for Foodies selection of Welsh cheeses

A selection of cheese is essential isn’t it? This delicious Welsh selection of cheeses came from Dragon, a farmer owned Welsh dairy co-operative that produces a wide selection of cheese and traditional Welsh butter. The range includes Cheddar (from young mild varieties to something more vintage which can be matured for up to 2 years). As well as this, they make traditional Welsh Caerphilly, Double Gloucester, Red Leicester and, my personal favourite, Vintage Cheddar with Leek – how very Welsh!

Dragon Cheese is available from a variety of retailers, including Sainsburys, Tesco, Asda, Morrisons, Lidl, local independent stores and cheese shops.

Christmas Gift Ideas for Foodies Opies pickled walnuts

Pickled Walnuts, some may say the ultimate cheese accompaniment. These are available from most supermarkets and the long date makes them the perfect addition to a food hamper.

Carolina Reaper Chilli, the hottest chilli sauce from Encona. Not for the faint hearted but a great offering for those who like to put their taste buds to the test!

Encona sauces are available in a range of UK supermarkets.
