Food and drink is a big part of Christmas. Today I am bringing you my food and drink gift guide with a selection of food and drink, alcoholic and non alcoholic. Something for everyone! Here are my top picks of Christmas gifts in the food and drink category for this year…
A random little selection here! First up we have the Fred and Bex fruit vinegar. I know what you are thinking – fruit vinegar, sounds a little odd, right? We were sent two of the flavours to try – the sweet blackberry and the sweet raspberry – and they tasted amazing! So sweet but so interesting too. The back of the bottles gives some options of what you can use them on and I think these would be a great gift for someone who likes something a little different.
Next up we have something for the person who likes really hot stuff. In my case, that is my partner, my father in law and my brother in law – you can certainly tell they are related! The Secret Santa gift ideas from Qwerkity which is where you can find this hot & spicy assortment from Cottage Delight are great, there’s a fab range! This would be the perfect Secret Santa gift for someone who you know loves a lot of flavour.
If your friends are anything like mine, they love vodka…especially flavoured vodka. The flavoured vodkas from Raisthorpe Manor are certainly something special. The 9ct Blood Orange and Toffee & Caramel Shimmering Vodkas combine top-notch vodka with tangy blood orange or luscious toffee – as well as real edible gold. What’s not to love? A tasty alcoholic beverage that can be used on its own, in coffee or on desserts plus a little bit of sparkle? Win win in my eyes!
Shloer never fail to pack a punch and they truly have delivered with their Limited Edition Apple & Blackberry Punch. It is very tasty and I feel it deserves to be in the range full time. Pick one up and let me know what you think. This is the perfect gift for someone who doesn’t enjoy alcohol but likes a nicely flavoured drink.
If the men in your life love a good beer, then why not gift them this fabulous Adnams Champion Beer Box. At £10 for 6 bottles, it is an affordable gift that is sure to be loved. We were sent some to trial for the gift guide and my father in law enjoyed trying them all – it is definitely worth buying at that price! Great gift.
You can’t have a Christmas gift guide without chocolate and these chocolate boxes from Elizabeth Shaw are a fantastic stocking filler. With the Winter Warmer truffle collection perfect for those who love liquor chocolates and the Christmas Creations perfect for all of the family, Elizabeth Shaw don’t let us down in providing something for everyone.
If you love flavoured coffee, then Cherizena is the coffee for you. My brother in law tested these out for us and said they were the best coffee he had ever tasted. They provide a range of flavours from around the world and can sell in large quantities too – what’s not to love?
If you know of someone who likes something a little different, how about gifting them some snacks from Yushoi? These are low calorie rice snacks, packed full of flavour that are perfect for someone who loves a snack a little different to the norm. If you’re interested in these, I have a competition running in December for your chance to win your own Bodhi & Birch and Yushoi package – be sure to head back then!
If you are a big cheese lover, how about a wedge of their favourite cheese and a Slate Cheeseboard?
My final choice and something I really want for myself is the Malibu Hot Chocolate. Available to buy at Tesco, BHS and Boots, this mixes my favourite alcoholic drink with my favourite hot drink and I am sure it tastes amazing! If you have a massive Malibu or hot chocolate fan in your life, this would make a great present for them this Christmas!
