Last-minute gifts ideas for Christmas
If you're looking for but are struggling to find the perfect foodie gifts this Christmas then here are a few suggestions for items that can still be ordered in time for the big day this coming Saturday 25th December.
The Quirky Gift Library – Scottish Collection
Inspired by famous flavours from Scotland like Cranachan, whisky and sea salt, the Scottish Collection by the Quirky Gift Library is made up of creamy handmade Belgian chocolates. The range includes an Isle of Skye Sea salted caramel chocolate, malt whisky dark chocolate and white chocolate cranachan with raspberry, oats and whisky. The hardest decision will be which flavour to choose!
Raw Chocolate Company Spiced Chocolate Almonds
The award-winning Raw Chocolate company makes sweet treats with minimally processed cacao (it is sundried rather than heated) to ensure the goodness stays in and that there is less of a carbon footprint.
All of their products are vegan and organic and this one, released just in time for Christmas, is sweetened with coconut blossom sugar and cacao butter, flavoured with festive spices including cinnamon, clove, allspice, and nutmeg. (£9.99).
Selbrae House – Scottish Made
Inspired by nature, Scottish Made offers the perfect gift for a new homeowner or someone who loves entertaining. The range includes beautifully crafted chopping boards, coasters and serving trays all made using sustainably sourced Scottish Oak and Sycamore.
From wood that is delicately etched with intricate stags and Highland cows to thistles and hares, the range is available to buy from Stòr, the new online shop by Historic Environment Scotland, priced from £18.00 - www.stor.scot.
Christmas is a time for over-indulgence so you can absolutely be forgiven for eating chocolates and treats instead of salads and healthier foods. Food and drink hampers come in all shapes and sizes and can specialise in sweet or savoury items, alcohol or even cater to specific dietary requirements.
See our dedicated Christmas hamper post for more details.
The Foodie Bag
If you know someone who loves to take pictures of their food but their pictures aren't quite setting Instagram alight then you can help take their pictures to the next level with the Foodie Bag, which provides backdrops, light reflectors and diffusers, and cards with tips.
