Woohoo, it’s officially the most wonderful time of the year! I love Christmas, I love buying gifts and I love food and drink. So, without further ado, here is a Food & Drink Christmas Gift Guide perfect for foodies, boozies, him, her, your co-worker and your family. It covers all bases, who doesn’t like eating and drinking? Enjoy!
You can’t go wrong with a bottle of high quality spirit at Christmas-time. Cointreau is an iconic and delicious orange liqueur perfect for the festive months, and for making Christmas cocktails! Orange is a very festive flavour and can be used in so many different drinks. This Christmas, Cointreau have released a stunning roaring twenties-inspired bottle which would be the perfect gift.
If you’re looking for something a little unique or quirky, The Duppy Share is a Caribbean rum that comes in a stunning and very-cool bottle. Another spirit that is perfect for festive cocktail making, it’s also ideal for a batch of Christmas or New Years punch (if they can bear to share it!). Duppy Share is £27.00 for a 70cl bottle and is available at Asda, Co-Op and Sainsbury’s. Mini bottles are available too on Amazon, Master of Malt and The Duppy Share website.
For the most amazing festive cider, you can’t go wrong with Rekorderlig’s Premium Spiced Plum Cider, which can be enjoyed hot or cold! Yes, you can serve over ice for a crisp and fruity evening drink or enjoy hot with a slice of orange as the perfect fireside companion. This would make a lovely gift for someone, or a very-welcome stocking-filler.
We all love a bottle of fizz, right? Perfect for the girls is this Barefoot Bubbly Pinot Grigio which is just £8.50! Ideal for parties, friends and nights-in with lots of food, Barefoot Bubbly are a great brand to get behind – they help to clean British beaches with Surfers Against Sewage and they have supported the LGBT community for over 25 years. You can add on these stunning gold champagne glasses which are just £14.99 from Domu.
Gift sets are a-plenty this time of year, and these two are my favourites. The Lakes Distillery make incredible drinks, and this lovely gift-set includes two miniature gins (Rubharb & Rosehip and Elderflower) and a gin balloon glass – and it’s just £15.00! I might have to buy one for myself…
Ideal for ‘him’ (though obvs girls like whiskey too), this tasting collection (including 12 and 18 year old whiskey) from Loch Lomond Whiskies is a well-presented treat from the Scottish brand.
Foodies will love this Italian Cheese Kit from Find Me A Gift (and it’s currently just £14.99). The kit makes up to ten batches and lucky receivers will be able to make Ricotta, Mozzarella and Bocconcini. I love this!
If you’re shopping for one of your favourite men, then why not treat them to the Ross & Ross Merry Christmas Man Box. Men can be notoriously hard to buy for, but this hamper can’t go wrong. It comes with a beer, some pork crackling, chutney and a sausage; all British!
What are you buying for your loved ones this year? I’d love to hear if you get them any of these gifts!
