Isle of Raasay gin (70cl, 46% ABV)
A fresh-tasting, smooth, handcrafted gin from Scotland’s Isle of Raasay. The gorgeous bottle and label make this a great gift for any gin lover.
Farhi cocoa dusted caramelised pecans
The team was seriously impressed by these crunchy, sweet (but not overly so) caramelised pecans encased in milk chocolate and dusted in cocoa powder.
These beautifully wrapped panettones come in a choice of delicious flavours including classic, pear & chocolate and marrons glacés.
Sous Chef (£22.50)
Dark hot chocolate drink
One for the serious chocolate lovers, this powder makes proper thick, dark hot chocolate. It's not too sweet but tastes deliciously indulgent and comforting.
Liberty London (£12.95)
Godminster black truffle cheddar truckle
This was a gold winner at the International Cheese Awards 2019, and we can see why. This organic vintage cheddar is flavoured with just enough black truffle so as not to overpower, making it an ideal stocking filler for cheese lovers or a perfect addition to the Christmas cheeseboard.
The Norfolk selection quince whisky liqueur (500ml, 20% ABV)
A light, fruity tipple with a strong quince flavour and gentle whisky warmth, this is sweet enough to be enjoyed on its own with cheese, or mixed with ginger beer.
The Whisky Exhange (£20.75)
|Master of Malt (£20.95)
Family-run, Berkshire-based Marsden's makes classic, crumbly fudge that melts in the mouth. We love the festive ginger-spiked variety as well as the treacle and chocolate flavours.
Marsden's Fudge (£7)
Ottolenghi spice rub trio
Master Middle Eastern cuisine with this set by Ottolenghi, which includes ras el hanout, berbere and sweet & smokey spice mixes. They come in pretty jars with a booklet that contains several easy and delicious recipes plus tips for use.
Best of British 12 beer mixed case
This is the ultimate gift for a beer-lover: the selection celebrates some of the UK’s best modern breweries, such as Northern Monk, Pressure Drop and The Wild Beer Co, and includes a range of popular beer styles.
Honest Brew (£29.90)
El Bandarra vermut red (100cl, 15%)
A fruity, spiced red vermouth that can be enjoyed with soda or added to a negroni for a bit of extra oomph without upsetting the flavour balance.
Vegan chocolate pralines
You’d never guess these creamy pralines with crunchy feuilletine, handmade by family-run chocolate company Be Chocolat, were vegan!
Frantoio Muraglia aromatic olive oil selection
This set includes four very different but equally delicious flavoured oils. We recommend drizzling the celery oil over fish or salad leaves, using the ginger on steamed vegetables, enjoying the lemon with chicken and pouring a dash of the chilli oil over dumplings or pizza.
Sous Chef (£22.95)
Herbaceous Blends teas
This range of punchy loose-leaf teas comes in beautiful, giftable tins. We love the floral rose & ginger and earthy mint flavours.
Herbaceous Blends (£5.49)
El Rayo reposado tequila (70cl, 40% ABV)
The ideal gift for any tequila lover, this smooth, complex tequila has notes of raw almond skins on the nose, and is a really special sipper. Plus, the utterly gorgeous bottle it comes in makes it great for gifting.
Chococo golden white chocolate bauble
These beautiful chocolate baubles not only look amazing, but taste delicious too. Our favourite is the ‘gold’ – a shimmering white chocolate bauble filled with four golden caramelised chocolate gems studded with Madagascan cocoa nibs. Also available in milk chocolate with salted caramels, vegan 'milc' chocolate and dark chocolate varieties.
Harvey Nichols blood orange & clove negroni (70cl, 24.5%)
A seriously quaffable, ready-to-drink negroni flavoured with blood orange and cloves that can be simply poured over ice to serve. It's an easy way to enjoy a festive twist on the classic cocktail.
Harvey Nichols (£35)
Crunchy, lightly spiced, studded with dried fruits and enrobed in a thick layer of milk chocolate, we think these are the ultimate Christmas biscuits.
Fortnum & Mason (£17.95)
Mighty Fine Things fruit vinegar miniature set
These versatile vinegars are great for someone who prefers savoury over sweet. Try a dash of the raspberry or damson vinegar in soda water for a refreshing spritzer, or drizzle them over salads, cheeses or bread to perk up dishes.
Mighty Fine Things (£15)
Montezuma's peanut butter snowballs
Peanut butter lovers will go mad for these white chocolate spheres filled with peanut butter.
