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.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.

PARTY LIKE IT’S 2015!

I don’t want to scare you, but 2016 is just around the corner! And while we’re
