It’s the most wonderful time of the year… if you love all things indulgent, that is! Christmas time is all about treating yourself and your loved ones, and we think that the way to everyone’s heart is through their stomach. We’ve gathered together our favourite foodie gifts and wrapped in a ribbon for you to savour, so sit back with a luxuriously spiced piece of gingerbread and glass of bubbly to mull over our ultimate festive foodie gift guide. Happy Holidays!
Let’s take it from the top: no matter your age, Christmas really isn’t the same without an advent calendar. There’s something enduringly special about the anticipation of a sweet treat each day as you count down to the big day itself. Ideal for youngsters, Zotter’s Nashis advent calendar contains 24 quality chocolates in a range of fresh and fruity flavours, including strawberry, banana and raspberry, as well as a bonus bar of Zotter chocolate for Santa on the 25th! But why should kids have all the fun?
Zotter’s five-flavour Christmas chocolate gift box is a luxurious bean-to-bar gift set that chocolate connoisseurs will love. As eco-conscious as it is delicious, the set contains five organic and fairly traded Christmas flavours, which are sure to please grown-up palates.
For an evocative taste of Christmases gone by, look no further than Regner’s traditional gingerbread selection. This sweet yet subtly spicy range of plain, chocolate-dipped and novelty shaped gingerbreads are lovingly made in Austria, and perfectly capture the essence of European Christmas. Ideal for perching on top of a stuffed stocking, the adorable gingerbread boy is best enjoyed with a deliciously creamy mug of Zotter hot chocolate.
Meanwhile, if like us decision-making isn’t your strong point, look no further than this beautifully decorated festive tin, which comes with a mixed gingerbread selection.
Whether you’re planning quiet family festivities or a big-scale bash, a well-stocked wine rack is essential. Profood’s curated selection of high quality red, white and rosé wines ensures you’ll never feel embarrassed about bringing a bottle along, while there are plenty of options for festive fizz that are guaranteed to get the party started. For an extra-luxe touch to your Christmas gifting, look no further than Adamas’ champagne and sapphire caviar gift box.
Exclusive to Profood, this renowned Italian supplier raise their Siberian sturgeon in pure spring water, resulting in some of the finest quality caviar available on the market today. This luxurious treat pairs perfectly with a bottle of champagne blanc de blancs grand cru millésime 2011 by Legras & Haas, elevating your canapés to their festive finest.
For the foodie who has everything, it’s time to think outside the box, and spread the joy of jamón! Simon Martin’s 52-64-month-cured, bone-in Gourmet Oro Iberico ham offers 9kg of sheer deliciousness that any committed carnivore will find irresistible. Of course, a delicacy this rarefied demands the right tools for the trade, and we can think of nothing better to store and display this Iberian treasure than this Spanish-made lacquered hardwood Jamonero Reserva ham holder by Simon Martin. A sturdy piece that’s built to last, this is one kitchen accessory that you’ll definitely want to keep on your countertop.
Christmas just isn’t Christmas without a holiday hamper, packed full of gourmet goodies and all wrapped up in wicker – and Profood’s ingenious themed hampers are designed for stress-free gifting that works with the recipient’s personal taste. The Cheese Lover’s hamper features range of delicious cheeses and accompaniments, as well as a beautiful handmade Tuscan olive wood board, and a handy knife set.
Budding chefs will adore the Start Cooking hamper, which will kick-start a loved-one’s kitchen adventures with a selection of store cupboard essentials, exciting extra ingredients… and a small tipple for the chef to enjoy after all their hard work! Finally, for people who relish a good roast, find bliss in freshly ground beans or simply crave some quality caffeine, look no further than the Coffee Mojo hamper. Containing a moka pot, a selection of coffees, espresso cups and some sweet treats to accompany a cup of joe, this set guarantees to put some pep in the step of every early-riser.
For those who require a restricted or modified diet, Christmas can often feel like a bit of a challenge. Happily, Profood have gathered the finest free-from products to help the holidays feel that little more special, whatever your dietary needs. Start the season right with Zotter’s Nashis vegan chocolate advent calendar, whose delightful dairy and gluten-free mini bars are utterly delicious. The table calendar comes with a built-in stand and is beautifully decorated with a Christmas angel motif, making it a thoughtful gift.
Coeliacs rejoice! Regner’s gluten-free Elisen gingerbread ticks all your sweet-toothed boxes – safely. Made with care by the same high-quality producer as our regular gingerbread, these lovely lebkuchen are as Christmassy as snowmen and mulled wine.
Finally, pull out all the stops and treat your favourite plant-based pal to the Vegan Joys hamper, which is packed full of premium ingredients and a fair few treats to see them through the festive season and beyond. From their morning coffee to an indulgent chocolate treat at the end of the day, Profood have vegans covered this Christmas.
