Christmas gift ideas for foodies
Christmas gifting season is upon us and if you have a foodie or two in your life, you may be looking for some inspiration for something special to put under their tree this year. Perhaps you’re the foodie in your family and need some inspiration for that Christmas wish list.
Whoever the lucky recipient is, we’ve pulled together a shortlist of our favourite Christmas gift ideas for foodies to suit a range of budgets. Happy shopping!
Luxury food hampers
There are many reasons why a hamper can make the perfect gift for a foodie. Often packaged in wicker baskets or beautiful boxes and ribbons, a hamper scores top marks for presentation before the recipient has even discovered what is inside.
The beauty of a hamper is that you can create your own and personalise it depending on who you are gifting it to. Alternatively, there are plenty of luxury ready-prepped hampers out there to suit a range of budgets.
For someone super special, Fortnum & Mason arguably offer some of the most luxury hampers on the market ranging from £50 to a whopping £6,000 and everything in between! We love the Christmas Treat Hamper, full of festive goodies to bring a smile to anyone’s face this Christmas.
Hot chocolate maker
You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t love an indulgent hot chocolate. With a hot chocolate maker, your loved one won’t even need to leave the comfort of their own home in order to get a cup of that warm, thick, sweet goodness!
Without a doubt, the most popular of hot chocolate makers out there is the Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser. The Velvetiser uses flakes of luxurious Hotel Chocolat chocolate and, quite literally, ‘velvetises’ it into a rich hug in a mug in just two and a half minutes. Not only this, but the Velvetiser comes in black, white or copper and looks beautiful on any stone kitchen countertop.
The next of our Christmas gift ideas for foodies is a pizza oven. What foodie doesn’t dream of cooking restaurant-quality food at home? With a pizza oven, that dream can become a reality. Forget frozen pizzas. A pizza oven brings rustic wood-fired pizzas home with the ability to create the perfect personalised pizzas for friends and family. They are the perfect addition to any outdoor kitchen or garden.
Pizza ovens vary in price, however, the more affordable options sit at around £250. Ooni has a few options to explore. The best thing about gifting a pizza oven? You’ll always be invited over to sample the goods at those pizza parties!
Food subscription boxes are the gift that keeps on giving. With goodies packaged and delivered right to your recipient’s door, the hard work is done for you when you gift a subscription box. Plus, there is a subscription box for pretty much anything; gin, beer, wine, pasta, hot sauce, chocolate – you name it.
Whatever your foodie’s prime passion is, a subscription box allows them to explore this passion and discover new products they may not have tried before. It also gives them something exciting to look forward to for a few months. Browse the huge range of foodie subscription boxes available on the market over on All Subscription Boxes.
Portable raclette set
If there’s one food that the majority of the world can unite on, it’s cheese! For this reason, there may be a few people on your Christmas gifting list who would appreciate a raclette set. If you are unfamiliar with what raclette is, think gooey, melted cheesy goodness.
The word ‘raclette’ is both the name of a type of Swiss cheese and the name of the dish itself. Raclette cheese is used for melting and grilling on a table-top grill. It is traditionally served with potatoes, cured meats, gherkins, olives and the like.
Similarly, cheese fondue sets make an indulgent gift for the cheese lover in your life. Plus, both options are on the more affordable side of the spectrum.
How many of us have a shelf full of recipe books that we only revisit a handful of recipes from? By buying your loved one a blank recipe journal, they can fill it with all those go-to recipes so that they are all in one place. Perhaps over time, they have added their own personal tweaks and additions to these recipes. The beauty of a recipe journal is that your recipient can write out the recipe exactly as they follow it.
Recipe journals are also a special way to document recipes that may have been passed down to the family. Not only this but over time, the recipe journal itself can be passed down to children and grandchildren, to continue cooking those household favourites year after year.
There are hundreds of recipe journals out there to suit anyone and everyone. Papier has a great selection to browse.
So, there you have it – a handful of our favourite go-to foodie favourites to inspire your Christmas gift ideas for foodies this year. If your loved ones enjoy being in the kitchen as much as you do, treat them to something that will take their culinary passions to the next level!
