CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE: THE FOODIE

This week in our Christmas Gift Guide we’ve picked the perfect Christmas gifts for foodies – whether your loved one is an amateur baker or fancies their chances on the next series of Masterchef!  I’m definitely a gadget lover, so there’s a few high-end appliances in the mix (no pun intended!) as well as some cheap and chic options for the budget-conscious.

THE CHRISTMAS CHUTNEY

Handpicked Collection, £11.25

Oh come on, no Christmas leftover platter is complete without chutney – and this trio from Hawksmoor is a delicious choice for the foodie who prefers eating to making! BUY HERE

THE HEALTHY GADGET

John Lewis, £25

This was one of my favourite kitchen purchases this year! I love making courgetti to curb my pasta cravings and I will definitely be trying out some different veg choices when I go on my inevitable January health kick.  Buy for anyone you think is likely to do the same! BUY HERE

THE UTENSILS

John Lewis, £5

Every baker and chef needs a decent set of wooden spoons, and these would add a splash of colour to any kitchen! An ideal stocking filler. BUY HERE

THE ARTWORK

Not on the High Street, £9.95

I’m pretty sure I’l going to manage to get some kind of poster, print or wall art into every gift guide – it’s a definate obsession of mine this year! This butchery inspired print is perfect for anyone flexing their muscles in butchery BUY HERE

THE MIXER

KitchenAid, £399

Surely this is the ultimate gadget on any foodies wish list?! Do I need to say more? BUY HERE

THE COOKWARE

Not on the High Street, £13.95

I’m obsessed with Moules, it’s probably my favourite easy winter meal and I would love to find this gorgeous enamel Moules pot under the tree this year! BUY HERE

THE COFFEE MACHINE

Nespresso, £94.99

No self-respecting foodie’s kitchen is complete without an amazing coffee machine, and in my opinion Nespresso make the best all-round option.  The ‘U’ is perfect for even the tiniest kitchen – or home office! BUY HERE

THE GIFT THAT KEEPS GIVING

Not on the High Street, £20

A monthly subscription always makes a great gift, but there’s so much more out there than magazines!  For someone who likes a Friday night treat, and also loves to cook I think this three-month curry

THE BOTTLE

Handpicked Collection, £30

No, I haven’t forgotten the alcohol, what kind of Christmas would it be without Gin?!  Add a bottle of Fevertree Tonic and a fresh lime and you’ve got the perfect alternative gift for the family member who loves a festive tipple! BUY HERE

Louise

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
