Christmas Gifts For Foodies

It’s that most wonderful time of the year. Yep, the November pay day has arrived so Christmas shopping is go go go! I thought it would be fun to share my suggestions of Christmas gifts for foodies of all ages and interests.

I have put together a list which should suit even the hard to please foodie in your lives- and I know because I am that person! I’ve (mainly) stayed away from actual food and tried to think more creatively than the usual hamper.  Every item is linked so you can shop without leaving your house. Just be sure to check for final Christmas delivery dates, then sit back and wait for the praise to roll in on Christmas Day!

For spice lovers

Christmas Gifts For Foodies // GoodEggFoodieI’ve fallen a bit in love with Spice Kitchen UK this year. I ordered some great quality spices and the quality was spot on. So if you are buying for a spice lover, how about one of these spice tins.  The tins come in Indian, Moroccan, African & Persian varieities- also available wrapped in recycled safari silk so they will look great on the worktop.

For creative foodies

Tom Hovey’s illustrations are an integral part of the TV show and the book is crammed with some of his favourites from past series.

For serious cooks

I want a good knife for Christmas – I have been asking Santa for ages and I have been really good this year so fingers crossed! I fancy a Global classic cooks knife. I’ve used them at cookery classes and they are so effortless.Christmas Gifts For Foodies // GoodEggFoodie   If you’re shopping for a fashion conscious foodie, then maybe these knives from Taylor’s Eye Witness which are made in Sheffield will hit the spot. I love the little bit of rose gold detail on this carving set.

For cocktail quaffers

Christmas Gifts For Foodies // GoodEggFoodie I love these Smith and Sinclair cocktails pastilles. These aren’t just flavoured like spirits- these come with an ABV of about 6% so are packed with the real deal. I’ve had these in the past so can tell you that they pack a punch – an ideal pick me up after an exhausting day with the family!

For Bakers

I fell in love with these Scrabble tile cookie cutters the moment I saw them. I have some Scrabble loving mates who would love them! They may show up in someone’s stocking this year. Imagine the fun you could have writing edible messages!

Christmas Gifts For Foodies // GoodEggFoodieSpeculaas is a wonderfully warming spice mix, so you could do worse than head over to the Speculaas Spice Co for a gift pack which comes with a heady spice mix and traditional cookie dough moulds.

I can already imagine it atop an apple pie…

For experiences they’ll never forget

Cookery schools are the perfect option if the person you are buying for already loves being in the kitchen and wants to enhance their skills.

Christmas Gifts For Foodies // GoodEggFoodieI’ve been to John Whaite’s Kitchen on the outskirts of Wigan a couple of times and it is stunning.  He runs courses in everything from afternoon tea to American classics and this Bake Off winner knows his stuff so you will come away full of new skills.

The Epsom Bakehouse run bread making courses all year round for everything from sourdough to extended courses for people looking to set up micro bakeries. Gift vouchers are available.   A voucher for Cheshire Cookery School, which offers everything from sushi to knife skills, is great if you’re unsure what your giftee is into.

I hope you’re suitably inspired to treat the foodie in your life now. If you are still stumped, let me know in the comments below and I will try and help. Think of me as your foodie elf! Christmas gifts for foodies are the best kind of gifts because chances are they will cook for you with them / share their treats with you. So gift wisely and have fun!
