Christmas Gift Guide 2018 – Food and Drink


I have put together a few food and drink gift ideas for Christmas this year. The below may or may not be vegan. As this is a gift guide I wanted to appeal to a wider audience.

Taste cocktails espresso martini kit


Taste cocktails kits make a great gift, they contain whatever alcohol you need and the recipe card, occasionally you may need to add something you probably have st home.

It contains:

2 x 100ml bottles Tovaritch Vodka
1 x 60ml Coffee Liqueur
1 x 30ml Hazelnut liqueur
1 x 30ml Lazzaroni Amaretto
A recipe card telling you about the cocktails and how to make them

You will also need:

Espresso coffee
A cocktail shaker, and fine strainer
martini glasses, and tall glasses

I think these kits are great and I have had them a few times before. It is great to be given instructions too so you know how to make the drink!


IloveGin – Italian Summer box

£14-£19 depending if you purchase a one off box or membership.

I think the IloveGin boxes are such a great gift for any gin lovers. You can buy one off boxes or a membership. Each box contains the gins and the mixers. It is a great way to try new flavours. This box contains two miniatures (50ml each) of Malfy Rosa and Con Arancia Gins. The box also comes with the delicious Fever Tree Tonics, Classic and Mediterranean of their new Refreshingly Light range.


Personalised wine

From £11.99 depending on label/wine/packaging options.

I think personalised wine is a great gift idea. If you know a wine drinker I am sure they would love a bottle with an extra special label on! The label is high quality and you can pick exactly what it says on. You can pick from a selection of different wines and you can also pay extra for it in a display box.

The wine options are:

Bordeaux (Red Wine)
Rioja (Red Wine)
Sauvignon Blanc (White Wine)
Chardonnay (White Wine)

There are so many label templates to choose from and then you can add your own wording to them. It is easy to follow the checkout process online when picking what options you want.


Grethers pastilles

£6-£7 depending where purchased.

I think these would be great for anyone that regularly gets a sore throat, someone prone to being ill or someone that uses their voice a lot. If you have anyone elderly that loves sucking on sweets I think they would love something like his. They come in such a cute tin too!


Cranes Cider

Various prices depending on flavour options/where you purchase them.

You can buy cranes cider individulally in Asda or online.

They have three flavours:

• Cranberries & Limes
• Blueberries & Apples
• Raspberries & Pomegranates

These ciders are so much more flavorsome than just regular cider you get. My husband thinks that the best one is the blueberries and apple as he says it is so refreshing. I am not a massive drinker but he loves cider and was really impressed with the Cranes range.


Hugos Chocolate club

Pricing depends on membersip:

Monthly subscription
£22 per month

Three month membership – £63
£21 per box

Six month membership – £120
£20 per box

This would make a great one off gift or if you were buying it between a few of you then you could splash out on a membership. The boxes contain a mixture of milk, dark and white chocolate as standard and this is something any chocolate lover would gratefully receive.

The particular box I got which was Septembers contains 4 items:

Coco chocolatier honey milk chocolate

Duffys fine chocolate with coca nibs and oak smoked salt

The chocolate cottage eton mess and lemon meringue chocolate

Neals raspberry delight chocolate bar

This would be perfect for any chocolate lover and the products are really good quality and I had to have a taste tester due to my vegan diet and I was told they all tasted amazing!


Capacitea tea set


The gift set contains 3 tea boxes each with 12 teabags plus a capacitea glass mug.

Glass Mug (500ml)

Chinese Green Tea (36g)

Chinese Yellow Tea (36g)

Chinese Jasmine Tea (36g)

I have been trying a lot of teas recently. I never really got on with loose tea though so something like this is perfect. I am loving the green tea right now. Green tea is so good for you and this one tastes really nice. This would be the perfect set for any tea lover, you could also check out what other flavours of tea they do.

The tea tastes really great quality but not too strong and I love how cool the clear glass mug is so can see the drink.


Diamond Shaped Whiskey Glasses


These look awesome! They are sold as whiskey glasses but you could put any drink in them. I have never seen anything like these before so they really stood out when I was browsing . If you know someone that enjoys a tipple of an evening then these would be a great present. They also will look amazing left out on display when not in use!


I hope I have given you some ideas 🙂
