I am so in the mood for Christmas it is a little ridiculous. As much as I am loving all things autumnal and halloween based, I am excited for the festive season. This year, I am even one of those annoying people that has pretty much finished all of their Christmas shopping before November (this never happens so am taking it as a big win)!
So with that in mind, here is the start of my Christmas posts this year. I have a wide variety of gift guides, stocking filler ideas, recipes, and all things festive to help you celebrate the wonderful season that it is. I do like to consider myself as a little bit of a foodie. And if you have someone in your life that is, then it can be tricky to know what to get them (without reaching for the old faithful of a new Jamie Oliver cookbook). So here are some gift/ stocking filler ideas for any foodie people that you have in your life. Would love to hear what you think.
1.White Measuring Cups – £10
These mega cute Russian Doll style measuring cups from Red Candy would make a fun addition in any keen bakers kitchen. With many recipes in cups these days, it is all about measuring out ingredients with these, rather than using scales. A fun little stocking filler.
2. Orla Kiely Kitchen Canisters – £30
I am a sucker for anything Orla Kiely as it is. But these Orla Kiely Flower Kitchen Canisters from John Lewis are just super pretty. Storing things like rice, flour, and nuts is made so much easier if you have something like this in your kitchen, right?
3. Cheeky Boy Hot Sauces – from £3.60
I have always liked food with a little bit of spice, but even more so since I have been married to someone that practically drinks hot sauce; he has it with nearly every meal! So we go through quite a lot of hot sauce. Having come across the Cheeky Boy Sauces, we have been really pleased. The range of flavours is amazing. I mean, coconut hot sauce? Sign me up. You can even get a 3 Pack Explorer Range that contains the Berlin49 German Hot Sauce, the Jolly Roger Coconut Hot Sauce, and the Tomato, Ginger & Honey Sauce. The trip makes a perfect stocking filler, and at £10.80, it is a bit of a bargain.
4. Tea Etiquette Gift Set – from £7.50
This super cute set of teas is handmade and sewn by Victoria Mae Designs. There are a range of packets and designs to choose from, so there will be something to suit everyone that you know, even better if they like drinking tea 😉 You can get a variety of flavours too, from more traditional English Breakfast, to Camomile, Rooibos, and Mint. So if you’re like me, and prefer herbal teas, then it still works as a cute little stocking filler.
5. Vegetable Peeler – £9.95
OK, just how cute is this Vegetable Peeler?! If you have a foodie in your life that loves to cook, then I think this quirky way to peel your veggies could be just what they need for a stocking filler. Unlike anything I’ve seen before, it is sure to please.
6. Personalised Chocolates – price varies
You can’t have a gift list for Christmas without having chocolate can you? But how fun are the personalised chocolates from Morse Toad? You can set funny phrases, simple words or names, and even whole sentences. So can work for any recipient that you have. It makes a break from standard boring festive chocolates, and I know I’d be pleased to see a box in my stocking this year. The prices vary, depending on how many lines of wording you have.
7. Cucumber Gin – from £5.95
If you know me well, you’ll know that I’m not a drinker. But I do cook with alcohol, which I’m sure many other foodies do. Having only used red or white wine before, I was intrigued to learn that you can cook with gin. It makes the perfect paring for salmon especially. So if you have a foodie in your life, or a gin lover, then this cucumber gin from the English Drinks Company could do just the trick. It is light and summer, with the cool cucumber undertones.
8. The English Provender Company Chutneys – from £1.90
Is it even Christmas without a cheese board complete with chutneys? I think not! One of my all time favourite brands of chutney is the above, from The English Provender Company. The flavours are so tasty and really versatile; my favourite being the caramelised red onion chutney. Sweet Tomato and Chilli Chutney, as well as their Plum & Bramley Apple Chutney are top of the list. Yum!
