Christmas is synonymous with fantastic food, think heaving tables full of turkey with all the trimmings, delicious desserts, and more chocolate than you could possibly eat in one sitting. If you have a friend who loves food, it’s a great time of year to treat them with useful tools, fancy cookware, and sweet eats. We’ve gathered the best pick of the bunch to help inspire your gift-giving this year.
1. Keep Them Sweet
Why not gift your pals with some yummy nibbles to snack on during the holidays? A huge box of their favorite chocolates or a hamper full of candy and lollies will be sure to make them smile. If you’re looking for a present that’s a little outside the box, try buttermilk biscuits. These buttery domes of flaky deliciousness can be eaten with sweet jams or eaten with savory dishes like fried chicken.
2. A Taste Of Luxury
Any decent foodie knows that decadent truffle is the ultimate luxury to get tastebuds tingling. Give your friend a jar of rich truffle mayo, or even better some fresh truffles with a grater and you’ll really let them know how much they mean to you.
3. Happy Hour
Christmas is a time to let your hair down so giving them a boozy gift will keep them merry and bright. A good quality cocktail-making set will look beautiful in anyone’s drinks cabinet and will allow them to get as creative as they like.
If your companion is more interested in fine wines than sweet drinks, a stunning glass decanter will make a terrific present. You can even have it personalised with their initials. Just make sure you gift it alongside their favorite bottle of red!
4. Hot N’ Spicy
A set of the finest hot sauce bottles is great for anyone that loves a little (or a lot of!) spice. These little bottles will blow their socks off and ramp up their Christmas dinner plate to take their roast potatoes from passable to packing a punch. Just make sure they don’t accidentally share it with their Grandma!
5. The Perfect Cup Of Joe
If your friend is a coffee connoisseur, giving them an awesome bean to cup machine will mean they can have the perfect cup every day from the comfort of their own home – not to mention save them a ton of money by skipping their daily Starbucks run! Look for a coffee maker that can be app-controlled so that they don’t even have to get off their couch to begin their brew.
6. Share A Slice
If you’re happy to blow the budget, a pizza oven is a super cool gift that will allow your friend to create the most delicious authentic pizzas, just like mama used to make. Perfect for that pal that loves to entertain others, just make sure you are on hand to taste a little slice of the action!
