Ho ho ho – the countdown to Christmas has begun!
Christmas is a wonderful time of family celebrations and holiday fun, but there’s also a side to the festive season which many of us dread – gift shopping. Chaotic car parks, crowded shops, time pressures and a bewildering array of choices can lead to frayed tempers, over-spending and plenty of presents bought in haste and frustration which will miss the mark.
Don’t let this be you. Why not give food gifts this Christmas and avoid the hassle, waste and disappointment of giving someone a present which they’ll never wear and never use?
Food gifts are foolproof. Everyone loves a tasty treat and there’s something to suit every palate and type. From stocking fillers to sumptuous food hampers, luxury condiments and favourite snacks to the latest kitchen gadgets, cooking kits and books, there’s a Christmas gift for every food connoisseur. Foodie items make great Christmas gifts and we’ve picked a few winners:
Gourmet biltong hampers
Everyone enjoys the savoury deliciousness of biltong and beef jerky. These beloved traditional South African snacks are firm favourites in Australia too and would be a welcome addition to any festive table or celebration. DJays Gourmet offers a wide choice of biltong and beef jerky gift baskets to suit every taste and budget – plus they ship countrywide, so you’re sure to find the perfect gift with the added convenience of door-to-door delivery! Choose from a variety of hampers containing different combinations of delicious biltong, beef jerky and droewors (dried sausage) plus spice rubs and sauces, trucker’s caps and bottle openers. Simply order online and your food gift will be on its way to the lucky (and happy!) recipient.
Seriously good cookware
If you’re buying a Christmas gift for a serious foodie, an item of cookware from le Creuset will hit the sweet spot. Anything from this highly desirable (and hard-wearing) brand is guaranteed to please and will likely become a treasured family heirloom.
Books for cooks
Yes, the internet is awash with recipes and social media posts provide continuous culinary entertainment, but nothing beats a beautifully crafted cookbook. Whether the book becomes a well-thumbed source of inspiration or serves as a beautiful display item, it’s bound to be a welcome gift.
Luxurious truffle infused olive oil or exotic black salt anyone? Artisan crafted gourmet condiments like sauces, spreads, dressings and relishes make fabulous food gifts because they’re out of the ordinary, but oh-so desired. They also won’t spoil, so you can beat the Christmas rush, buy your items in advance and put together a hamper of goodies well ahead of time.
Bar cart delights
If the person you’re buying a Christmas gift for loves food, they’re probably pretty well acquainted with liquid refreshments too. A great idea would be something which would add pizzazz to their bar cart like a wine and chocolate hamper, cocktail set, juicer, novelty bottle opener, whisky stones or ice bucket – and you could always add some biltong and beef jerky to your gift too. After all, every bar worth their salt has tasty snacks on offer, right?
