Christmas Count Down: Perfect Presents For.....FOOD LOVERS!

Each week, I'm going to be bringing you a gift guide showing some of the wonderful gifts available this year for all your relatives!
 
I am going to be trying and testing each and every thing I recommend, and only the items that I feel are worthy will be featured.
 
This week, I am bringing you my suggestions of the Perfect Presents for Food Lovers.
 
I always think foody gifts make ideal Christmas presents for most relatives, and especially good ones for neighbours or school teachers - people who you buy for but perhaps don't know all too well - food gifts are usually a pretty safe bet!
 
Ferrero Rocher

Ferrero Rocher have been my favourite chocolates ever since I can remember, and they really make me think of Christmas time - I always make sure to put them on my wish list every year but I purchase my own too, coz to me it just would not be Christmas without them!
 

This year the Ferrero Collection features some really lovely gift packs which would make such an ideal but low cost present for a neighbour or a stocking filler for a relative.
 

The gorgeous gold mini box containing 6 Ferrero Rocher would be ideal - it doesn't even need wrapping as it looks gorgeous as is, and is a snip at just £2.99!
 

If you want something a bit different, the Ferrero Collection featuring a selection of their finest chocolates is perfect and the box of 15 pieces featured is an ideal size.
 
 

Or for something completely different, the Raffaello by Ferrero were brand new to me - they are coconut creams in a crisp wafer dusted in coconut frosting. They're really light, completely delicious and look like little snowballs! The Raffaello Keepsake tin is available for £8.99
 
 
All of the above are available from all major retailers, and you can read more at http://www.ferrero-range.co.uk/


I Heart Prosecco

Christmas is, of course, the time to indulge yourself in your favourite tipple and mine has to be Prosecco!
 

I think there's something so Christmassy about it, and I always make sure we have a bottle of it with our Christmas dinner.
 

So I personally would be thrilled to receive a bottle of Prosecco as a Christmas gift, and I think most people who drink would be.
 

I Heart Prosecco is well designed, and is absolutely delicious - and at under £10.00 a bottle you really can't go wrong!
 

Available from Tesco Wine Club, Budgens, Londis and Rhythm & Booze for £9.99
Ringtons Tea Gift Sets

Ringtons are a family run British tea specialist who have been producing the finest tea & coffee as well as biscuits, sweet treats and homewares since 1907.
 

They have many beautiful gift sets available this year, to suit all budgets with prices ranging from £9.99 to £22.99
 

This set is the 1907 Gift Box priced at £15.99 - it came in a beautiful cream box with gold detailing, and really does look something special and high quality straight away.
 

The box contains:
 
*80 Kenyan Gold Tea Bags
*200g packet of Shortbread rounds
*1907 Heritage Range Fine Bona China Beaker Containing 22 Carat Gold!
 
This set is exquisite, and the quality of the tea and biscuits is very very high! This would make a really lovely gift for anybody who appreciates a good tea break, and I think you'd be very hard pushed to find a better quality gift set in this price range.
 
Available from www.ringtons.co.uk


Godminster Cheese



Godminster is well known for its range of organic cheeses, and who doesn't love a decent bit of cheese at Christmas?!


I was lucky enough to try some of the vintage cheddar and it honestly of outstanding quality.


From vintage oak-smoked cheddar to Jersey milk brie - Godminster Cheeses cover every possible taste!


There are so many gift options available, ranging from the lovely 200g classic vintage heart-shaped cheddar (£5.99) which makes a perfect stocking filler, right up to the Year Of Cheese (£250.00) which sees delicious cheeses delivered to the recipients door every month for a whole year making the perfect unusual "Main" present for a cherished cheese lover!


These absolutely delicious cheeses are available from www.godminster.com

Bay Tree Fudge Co.




Fudge is such a perfect alternative to chocolate and candy at Christmas time, and is a personal favourite in my house!


The Bay Tree have put together a brilliant selection of gift ideas for Christmas 2013, and their pack of Crumbly Butter Fudge makes the perfect stocking filler for every sweet tooth in the family!


I was sent some to try out and I'm rather embarrassed to admit that I devoured the lot within minutes of opening it. It is absolutely divine - crumbly, not too sweet and just melts on the tongue!


At just £2.75, you really can't go wrong.
 
Will you be buying gifts for any food lovers this year? What are your favourite Christmas food and drink indulgences? As always, I'd love to hear from you!
