Festive food gifts

For this month’s Now Then magazine feature the focus is on festive food gift ideas for the foodie in your life, including yourself.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money on presents, giving something thoughtful to your loved ones counts for a lot.  I have collated ideas from stocking filler tips to some ‘sharing experiences’ gift suggestions.

Cocoa Mester festive box

Here’s a taster… you could make up a hamper of food and drink favourites, including a bottle of Henderson’s, Birdhouse Tea and Little Mester cheese, or chocolate boxes from Cocoa Mester, like their festive box of mulled wine chocolates or their Winter Wonders box featuring sticky toffee pudding and sloe gin chocolates.

Food always tastes better shared with others.

On that basis, we’d recommend arranging a get-together to enjoy a festive feast. You can buy a selection of meats and cheeses from Porter Brook Deli, together with a couple of Tipple Tail fruit cakes for dessert or cheese pairing. For more inspiration, read the article in full here.
