Christmas Gift Guide 2015: For Food & Drink Lovers (+ Giveaway)

It’s that time of year when we are all busily hunting the shops and online for the perfect gifts for friends, family and loved ones.
My favourite time of the year as I love finding gifts which I know will be loved by the recipients, I can spend hours just procrastinating hunting for the right gift.  Here I am sharing with you the gifts I have found which are for the food & drink lovers in the family in the hopes that it will help you if you are still struggling with gift ideas.
Thorntons Mega Christmas Gift Bundle: RRP £60 (offer price £25)

I always buy the bundle deals when they are on special offer as they make lovely gifts to keep on hand in a cupboard.  Perfect gifts for teachers, the postman or the relative who’s popped over unexpectedly. 
In this current Christmas bundle you will find:
  • Continental Milk, White & Dark Collection (150g) x2
  • Classics Christmas Favourites (504g)
  • Classics Favourite Puddings (150g)
  • Original Special Toffee Bag (325g)

If you sign up for emails or even keep an eye on the Facebook page you will often find discount codes for around 10% off which can be used to buy these bundles making them even cheaper.  I managed to get this bundle for £22.50 (£26.50 posted which for this amount of chocolate is a great deal)

Jam Trio Gift Box from ScandiKitchen: £11.50
A lovely gift to keep or give away. A trio of delicious fruit jams
Here you will find
  • Felix Cloudberry Jam 283g: A Scandinavian jam regarded a delicacy – a golden, tart berry similar to physalis and raspberry in flavour.
  • Felix Wild Lingonberry Jam 283g: A must with Swedish meatballs, this thick jam is made from wild Swedish Lingonberries.
  • Felix Wild Blueberry Jam 283g: Made from wild Swedish bilberries this jam is intensely flavoured and works a treat with pancakes.
Mulled Wine Spices from ScandiKitchen £3.50
Not a gift in itself however this little package contains all the spices you will need to make your own Mulled wine.  You could either make up ready for friends coming over in the lead up to the Christmas festivities or make and bottle as gifts.
I purchased these pretty Kilner bottles in both Pink and Green with the intentions of making my own Sloe Gin and giving as Christmas gifts, sadly the Sloe crop wasn’t great this year and I was unable to find enough to actually make any.  These would however make lovely gifts for serving water or squash or for making flavoured vodka in and giving as gifts instead (although I really do need to make a start if I am to do this).
Winter Warmers from Aldi:
An Australian Red wine.  This delightful, elegant red has intense flavours of juicy blackcurrant and cherries. Eucalyptus and mocha notes add depth to the wine, which is perfect when paired with rich dishes such as Steak or Duck.
This Whisky is a blend of Scotland’s finest grain and malt whiskies, boasting notes of citrus and vanilla, with ripe fruit and rich malt flavours

Its super smooth flow leads into a long, fruit-filled finish

Exquisite Collection Gavi – £5.49
Produced from Cortese grapes grown around the town of Gavi in the outstanding Piemonte wine region of northern Italy
This refreshing and aromatic wine balances the flavours of tangy lemon, weighty fruit and subtle waxy nuttiness. Enjoy with a wide range of dishes including salad, antipasti, creamy pasta sauces or risotto

A personalised Christmas wine glass featuring a Christmas Tree design which can be personalised with the wording of your choice in a variety of font styles.

A 31cl capacity wine glass which comes securely packaged in a vibrant blue gift box, this makes a wonderful gift for all wine lovers.  We were very kindly sent one of these which we have had engraved for the Children’s Godfather/Uncle.  Delivery takes between 2-7 days and I am giving away one of these lovely glasses to one lucky Emmy’s Mummy reader.
